The atmospheres coming out from today’s releases help us with good mood, meditation, cathartic screaming, and filling up with good vibes. Shall we? Flashes.
GET UP SEQUENCES PART ONE – THE GO! TEAM
Under any circumstances, The Go! Team’s new album will make us smile. Full of radiant energy, Get Up Sequences Part One is far from grey weather and scheduled routine. Colourful and warm, the genre mix could make us get up at dawn even after a very short night. Let The Seasons Work, We Do It But Never Know Why, Pow, A Bee Without Its Sting… we’re getting attached to these groovy songs, feeling a bit 90s, disco, funk and bright pop at the same time. Some are closer to our hearts than others, but it’s always a pleasure to listen to them, including the instrumental-only ones, as the record never seems to take a break. It’s fresh.
CAME DOWN SHINING – BUTEO BAND
With the orchestral intro on I Got Time, Buteo Band is taking us quickly into a kind of modern western. The Swedish band has actually built a vast cinematographic musical universe, even in their most energetic tracks (Somedays). Came Down Shining is a well-constructed album, yet relatively prone to contemplation. With tracks relatively long, like the seven-minutes closing song Inside My Mind, they give us plenty of time to slowly get into it and enjoy our time in their aesthetic, between a brutal rock and intricate folk, with a high contrast of pop and psychedelics horizons.
DEVIANT BY EGO – MNNQNS
Instruments are blowing up, and sound has become its own master. MNNQNS starts their new EP, Deviant By Ego, with psychedelic and deconstructed collaboration on Idle Threat with The Psychotic Monks. The result, at first unsettling and harrowing, is also fascinating and cathartic. The band is, then, less intense and more accessible, with their Pop side. All I Need Is You Tonight and Overseas have something relaxing to them, and yet their rhythms are making us move along. Underseas, with bungalow depression, however, is a good way to bring back quietness. It’s a compact EP, full of sensory experiences.
