Death Drop Records – From dirty electro to shimmering pop
Night Motor – Bleeding Heart
With a machine-like migraine comes the new Night Motor release. This seven-track mini album, Bleeding Heart, maintains their rigorous avoidance of orthodoxy and underlines the notion that there is no such chimera as a typical Night Motor track. Like Fad Gadget and Suicide before them, Night Motor are a servo-sonic transgression engine of perversity. Their material is infused with a counter-intuitive sense of alluring distaste, while the pounding rhythms and melodies will keep you rooted. Opening this pandora’s box of processed frequencies reveals a tense use of textures, as Steve Potter’s analogue synths and Mawgan Lewis’ bruising guitars fight for space. This is smothered with the sure-fire vocal twitches of singer Mat McIvor. Title track Bleeding Heart is a mutant stomp of Cramps guitar and Sheep On Drugs dance heat, while New York City is a blast straight from the grime of the street. Speak In Tongues, an irresistible St Vitus subroutine, leads into a car crash of pop, Shoot Me Up, and You Make Me Shake, a hot-wired techno rock ‘n’ roller. The album finishes up with the caustic paranoia of Self Vivisection and the downbeat spirals of the Joy Division infused Disappointed.
Bleeding Heart is released on Monday 25 January 2016. Formats: download and CD.
Escape Wave – Light Years single
Light Years by Escape Wave is released on Monday 21 December 2015. It’s a electronica blast of fizzy wonky synth, where doomed vocal meets plastic art pop, the track is a boom of off-kilter melody hooks that it will capture your brain. Escape Wave is Owen Davies, the whizz kid on a synth. His music is recorded live and analog.
Death Valzer single
Exit Bag by the dark lord of electronica Death Valzer is released on 26 January. With one foot in the grave of horror cinema and the other limb prodding at doomed dance, Exit Bag fuzzes with evil bass and a concoction of swirling synths.
