Some heavy guitars are showing up to the party, we’re under their spell. From the softest to the sharpest, here’s our selection for today’s releases. Flashes.
SONGS FROM ECHO ZOO – NIGHT FLIGHT
The first notes of Dreaming are placing a summery sepia filter in front of us. Slightly old-school but warm, it’s the atmosphere that comes from Night Flight’s new EP, Songs From Echo Zoo. The band starts with a bubbly feeling and, smoothly, with Canada, Something Going On and Sleeping In California, lets melancholy, vulnerability and sweetness. It’s a cocooning moment, and we’re lulled by this kind of EP. If we’re less into some effects, too high-pitched for us at times, we really charmed by its lightness. An easy listening.
LAND OF NOTHING – BABY STRANGE
Here’s an intro that needed to be unleashed, so much that it probably exploded the garage door behind which Baby Strange seem to have prepared Land of Nothing, their new EP. Infused with safety pins, this punk rock is a worthy heir of a long line that never really died out. One listen to More! More! More!, Club Sabbath and I Want to Believe are enough to get the raging riffs and vocals of the terrible children of that time… only cleaner, maybe. Of course, we can only love it.
TYPHOONS – ROYAL BLOOD
Rock music belongs to the dancefloor. With the dashing and devastating Typhoons, Royal Blood has decided to force the club’s doors to shake the ground for miles around. And we bloody love it. With small touches (Trouble’s Coming, Limbo) that are strongly reminding us of another duet, helmet-y and split-up, this third album, between introspection, sobriety and passion, becomes a beautiful must-have. Powerful all along, they’re letting us have a soothing end with All We Have Is Now. And our favourites? The jerky Boilermaker and the impulsive Oblivion, of course, have won us over.
