Climate Control: Tidal Wave

South African hardcore/grungers Climate Control save the best for last on their new single Tidal Wave, when they let rip in the last few bars of the song. Before that it's an adequate but not particularly run down familiar hard rock lanes. They follow the rules of play as enthusiastic students. Throw away the books and start writing your own courses.

Climate Control:
Nicolas Gonzalez: vocals, guitar
Jacques du Toit: drums
Wesley Smuts: bass, vocals
Luca Zeeman: guitar

Tidal Wave is a self-released single. Buy it from their website.

New Dutch indie label: Tiny Room Records

Tiny Room Records is the brain child of Stefan Breuer, member 6-piece alternative rock band Lost Bear. Focusing on the (inter)national underground, he hopes to help artist finding a bigger or at least appreciative audience.

He kicks off with two releases on October 28: Impossible Cities, a new instrumental album by American producer and musician Todd Tobias (Robert Pollard's go-to guy as an arranger) and Simple Field Calculator by Dutch shoegaton duo Sven Agaath Shoegaton? It's a mix of shoegaze and dance rhythms.

Lucas Brode: prixvyou

NYC guitarist Lucas Brode, member of instrumental post-rock trio Hannibal Montana, goes out on his own with prixvyou. The EP is a showcase for his influences, ranging from jazz and avant-garde to modern minimal music and math rock.

The six short pieces - Drip is all done after 16 seconds - find him prowling the back alleys of electric guitar playing, with static not being used as a texture in stead of a nuisance. Brode is an explorer, who uses the three parts of Circadian Shapes for three different rhythmic approaches of a cool musical idea. Buyers of the CD are treated to the lengthy Stoicism, a free flowing track with an ambient atmosphere. Recommended if you like Matt Stevens and Bill Frisell.

prixvyou is a self-released EP. Buy it from his website.

Tracks:
  1. Interpretative Trance
  2. Advent
  3. Colourisation
  4. Drip
  5. Circadian Shapes, Part I
  6. Circadian Shapes, Part II
  7. Circadian Shapes, Part III
  8. Stoicism (CD only bonus track)
