Walrus: Goodbye something (Madic Records, 2016)

Suenan decididamente a Psicodelia. A Pop-Psicodélico. Pero sin ser una banda Retro. Una actualización conveniente del género en manos de estos chicos provenientes de esa nueva mina de bandas que es Halifax, Canada.

“The opening track, ‘Wearing It’, is a paradoxical, yet completely satisfying blast of laid back energy. Justin Murphy’s sweeping, untroubled vocals are offset by the band’s incredible momentum – showcasing that all the instrumental elements can be blended together seamlessly, yet still stand out on their own. Adam LeDrew’s delicious up-front bass lines and the impossibly intricate, tightly woven drums devised from the multi-tentacled Jordon Murphy drive the songs to their utmost potential.
‘Fur Skin Coat’ is a short and catchy nugget, followed by the stand out track ‘Feels’, that captures a sun-kissed Western feel while still remaining true to its psychedelic tendencies. Mysterious, almost sullen, lyrics like, “Do you get the chills when I’m around,” and, “I love the times when it’s hard to tell,” create a timeless feel. Ending off with a surge of retro sixties sounds and jangly guitar riffs, ‘When I Close My Eyes’ combines all the best elements that Walrus has to offer. Fans of the psych pioneers The Thirteenth Floor Elevators, to newer sensations like Tame Impala, and everything in between, will find something that plucks their interest.
Deciding to release the EP with Dan Managan’s baby label, Madic Records, which has only put out a handful of records, was a new step for the band. “We wanted to have a release with us when we did our Canadian tour with Wintersleep in March,” says Jordan Murphy. “We found out Dan was interested in working with us, so the idea of putting out the EP with Madic Records/Arts & Crafts started to come together. We made some copies for the tour, but the EP wasn’t officially released until last Friday, so they ended up a little different. We finally got to meet Dan when we were in Vancouver, and it’s been great working together so far” (The East Mag.)

Tiny Ruins & Hamish Kilgour: Hurtling through (Ep, Flying Nun, 2015)

Pulsiones acústicas y sensibilidad a flor de piel…

“Tiny Ruins are a band based in Auckland, New Zealand. Conceived in 2009 by songwriter Hollie Fullbrook to describe her solo output, the group now includes Cass Basil on bass, Alex Freer on drums & Tom Healy on electric guitar. Traversing early influences of folk and blues, Tiny Ruins’ sound draws on ethereal and grungy soundscapes alike. Sometimes likened to Nick Drake, Mazzy Star or Nico, Fullbrook’s voice and guitar work evades cliché, making use of alternate tunings by way of her own self-styled fingerpicking. Lyrically one of a kind, stories are laced with a dark humour that is at times disarmingly confessional, at others, cryptic and philosophical” (Press)
