The Oscillation, March, Madzen, and more…

November 12, 2021.

Week 45 2021 Hi y’all here I’m with another round of 9 Albums/EPs you should listen to, released all of them recently (if you want you can take a look at our previous week here).

1.- The Oscillation Untold Futures. While the individual tracks in The Oscillation’s latest album are impressive works of psychedelic music in their own rights, Untold Futures is all the more impressive considering how well the album flows together from beginning to end. And at the same time that The Oscillation build upon elements of recognizable musical styles such as shoegaze, psychedelic-, space- and krautrock throughout Untold Futures, the evocative soundscapes that they create reflect a sound that is wonderfully and uniquely their own. We have the opportunity to talk with Demian Castellanos a couple of times this year for the release of Forever Knowing and Heart Of Nowhere. You can read our review here. This is an essential album that you can’t miss!!!

2.- March All Of The Above. Kitty O’Neal is a British multi-instrumentalist and songwriter. Releasing music under the performing alias March, the artist creates airy magical folk-infused indie sound. Elements of prog-rock and jazz spark up her music, even more, making way for immersive storytelling surrounded with gentleness. Her beautiful singing voice has a sunny sheen to it, complementing well with the dreamy atmosphere. Ethereal string arrangements spiced up with rhythmic varieties, silver-laced lyrics written with open heart carry the listener to somewhere serene, away from the busy daily lives and away from the hurting..

3.- Madzen Las Despedidas In his own words “A four-track EP made to commemorate all that we lost this year, with heartfelt production and a heavy dose of feelings.”  You can read our review here.

4.- Stuart Pearson Mojave  In his own words “This is my second release based on Dark Americana music – folk music for bad people. “Mojave features over a dozen instruments as well as found percussion (bath tubs, pots, pans and big sticks) and was recorded over the last 18 months while in quarantine. It’s a labor of love and fear.”

5.- Alba Rose  Silhouette EP consisting of a four-track compilation of indie-soul, jazz, contemporary, neo-soul, dream-pop & indie-pop goodness. You need to give it a listen to it.

6.- Georgie Overdue  In her own words “My Debut EP ‘Overdue’ takes you through the highs and lows for me over the past couple of years, and the two different sides to my music. I love dark experimental sounds but equally can’t get enough of smooth and soulful melodies.”

7.- Elephant Wknd II.  After last years debut EP the guys again managed to write and record the five raw rockers you can hear on their upcoming second EP simply entitled „II“ – all in just one weekend.

8- Sirent Suit  Monstrous Chitterings   The collection consists of songs mostly written and developed during lockdown. The band podded down and practiced in the open air on each other’s porches with little parlor guitars and a single snare drum. The music is still heavy, but displays a more melodic and song-based aesthetic. Vocal harmonies have been taken up many notches and arrangements are more carefully considered. You can read our review here.

9.- Petros Fuzzhead  The War Is Near  is Petros Fuzzhead’s first full-length studio album and it consists of 11 tracks. It was released on October 31, 2021 in all streaming platforms and it is to be out as well in a limited edition digipack cd in December 2021.

2 single & video releases out of this album preceded it, starting with the single “Soviet?” (June 2020) and more recently with the single “I Know Who You Are” (May 2021)

This week we have no just one, neither two bonus but three, all of them worth it and all different, you really need to listen to it:

Andy Aquarius, the album Chapel in his own words “This album is my official solo debut record and it’s my most honest and profound release so far. It’s been performed live on my self-built Celtic harp and we didn’t do any editing / comping etc, to stay as close to the original expression as possible. The songs are showing me from my most authentic and vulernable side and I believe that they will resonate with you. A real thing of beauty.

KC Blackwater, the EP Happy Smiling Faces  is a solo bedroom project which combines energetic UK punk and spoken word, with grunge and experimental sensibilities (or lack of it). Bassist Cam Owden (of Alfie Templeman) has branched out into releasing his own music in order to vent his frustrations and confusion about the fast changing and often baffling modern world. This debut EP presents a raw, unrelenting energy which, when paired with a high-impact production style, holds no punches.

Cat Valley, the EP Feral  Cat Valley is an indie-rock band from the Pacific Northwest originally started by two best friends, Whitney Flinn and Abby Hegge. Feral is Cat Valley’s second release recorded in Whitney and Abby’s living room and mixed and mastered during the pandemic. These are songs that are meant to be sung or screamed along to in your car; songs for anyone who has ever felt left out.
