THE BEATERSBAND Love I Can B W You

 

The Italian Beatersband have released 4 cd albums (one is an ep), while this is their second single. They consist of Donatella Guida - voice/guitar/choirs, Leonardo Serrini - bass, and Enrico Vanni - drums. They play punk rock, genuine r’n’r that is, they are super melodic and they record small sharp songs that vibrate our bodies. There are two songs here, Love I Can B W You and My Mother Plays Rock'n'Roll, melodic and sticky. 100 black and 100 white vinyls await the fans of this cool sound.

TANGLE EDGE Cispirius

 Space Rock Productions

Cispisius is the latest release (double vinyl) from these insurmountable Norwegians, Tangle Edge. These are actually recordings made in the 90's. Here is the 58 minute beyond the hills of inhibition which is divided into four parts and occupies, 3 whole sides and a little of the first one, after the almost 17 minute cancalam. Some of the recordings are unreleased, some are mixed from the beginning. However, the 3 musicians prove once again how much they are immersed in psychedelic and progressive sounds and how amazing they are with their instruments. Hasse Horrigmoe, Ronald Nygård, Kjell Oluf Johansen, start playing their songs and literally seem to reach the ultimate nirvana, with absolute precision and absolute reverence! Amazing musicians, amazing music, amazing release.

THOUGHT BUBBLE Primal Connection

Dub Cthonic Records

Thought Bubble recently released their debut album Around (Dirty Filthy Records ). Here at Primal Connection the moods of this electronic band are much darker. Nick Raybould and Chris Cordwell are recording 6 tracks with a total duration of just over an hour. The sounds produced by the British here seem to radiate electronically stellar bodies, first enveloping recycled in our minds and later  throughout the universe. Electronic music but analog drums and electric guitar. And do not worry if you feel that your mind is full of bubbles. It depends on what mood you listen  this kind of music! Thought Bubble  play electronic music, sometimes touching the edges of the kraut, gently caressing the ambient dimensions, cordially greeting some dub paths and all this wrapped in electro/space clouds. The excellent "Veering" somehow encapsulates the essence of this band.  Limited edition cassette!!!!


 

 

 

LE LANTERNE ROSSE Paura Del Buio / Non Puoi Restare

 Lost In Tyme Records


The Italians Le Lanterne Rosse is a relatively new band. But its members are anything but new in the garage, since, Matteo-voice, guitar, bass, Francesco-voice, guitar, bass, instrument, Fulvio-guitar, Diego-drums, have existed in bands such as excellent Head & The Hares, I Fenomeni, but also the unique Painted Brush !! Here, this new fantastic band recorded 2 garage folk songs, they sing in Italian and as you can imagine the sound is totally 60s. Two amazing songs with "Non Puoi Restare"  I like more since the sound is much more psychedelic but also "Paura Del Buio" sounding great. Either way, Le Lanterne Rosse's single is brilliant. (Oh yes, the notes on the back is by Greg Prevost of the legendary Chesterfield Kings).
