Keeley Filgo – Sleeping Side of the Sun

Standard

Impressive folk release by a female vocalist from London. She has a soulful voice which gives the album a really moody feeling, more so than many other folk artists. Lyrics are often wistful, pensive and a little melancholy. One of the most mature and honest female folk releases I’ve heard for quite a while.

Art Deco Cathedrals – Every Pain & Every Pleasure: An EP

Standard

This sombre post-rock release uses an acoustic guitar as its focal point, something not often seen within the genre. Because of this the album has a murky, brooding feeling. The song Regine Olsen is perhaps the best example of this, where the occasionally discordant guitar constantly provides a source of tension and uncertainty.

Generally an exciting release that will keep you on your toes, but not something to listen to whilst walking alone at night.

Ocean Blanket – Lost Again

Standard

Today’s entry is short and sweet, but not a minute is wasted.

This mostly acoustic EP features a classic ‘man and his guitar’ combo occasionally backed by some electronic noodling. One thing that drew me in was the mature lyrics that manage to make a statement without being over the top. The only downside is the short length and the abrupt ending of some songs.
