‘Denervation’ – Kid Dakota February 8, 2018

Kid Dakota‘s album is out this Friday, it is called ‘Denervation’ and frankly if this is a good sign of what the album will be like it will be a bloody humdinger. If you like shoegazing, lo-fi sounds you will pretty surely love this track and I hope the whole album too. That album is also called “Denervation” and it will be released on GraveFace Records  very soon.Like electronica? Like your electronica a bit dark? Then you will fucking love this. “The Nurse” could well be one of the most positive dark songs that you hear all year. Meanwhile at some point “The Convalescent” is both depressing and uplifting at the same time. I love this album, but if you are of a nervous disposition please listen to it with a friend.

For me this is a definite headphones album, one to listen to on a dark Friday night. Or alternatively when you are stuck in a hotel room on a stormy Wednesday night in New York as I am. In this moment “Self Destruction” reflects exactly how I feel, however I then listen to “Hope” and I am damned well filled with it.  How can an album take you on such a roller coaster journey through your feelings? Honestly I don’t know but this is one fine album, I am reminded of the best songs from Mark Everett of the Eels, a band that I absolutely love If you are in a reflective, positive mood then this is a fabulous album. If you are not in such a positive place I would approach with caution. In the dark on decent headphones “Bloodletting” is really fucking scary! “Pills” is equally depressing and inspiring, but in the main a truly uplifting piece of music. But if you love music and you like it to challenge you then give Kid Dakota a shot. As a footnote I should say that Darren Jackson wrote the songs while bedridden after a horrific bike accident and the songs definitely say what he was going through.

Thank you to Noisy Ghost PR for giving me the opportunity to hear this cracking release early!

 

“All In Time” – Hospital Ships March 4, 2016


Jordan_Thor

Hospital Ships is essentially the band identity used by Jordan Geiger (off of Shearwater, Des Ark and Minus Story) and his friend Thor Harris (off of the Swans). The new single, “All In Time” is a taster for the new Hospital Ships album ‘The Past Is Not A Flood’ which drops next week on Graveface Records.

This song is a fine slice of almost ghostly and ethereal electronica. A perfect accompaniment to chilling out after a hard days work or a after a long sweaty night in clubland. If this song fails to move you in some way or fails to leave you in an extremely chilled state of mind then I must wager that you have no soul! If the album is as good as this track it will be a belter! Click here to check out the single and plenty of other good things from Hospital Ships on Bandcamp.
