I hate to say I love BDRMM as the group are just making a name for themselves by signing to Sonic Cathedral…but dammit, I love the hell out of this song. It teases you, acting like an instrumental, but don’t mind that, you’ll get your lyrics. I love the natural bounce of the song, slowly adding layer upon layer…guitars, atmospherics, percussion, bass…then another guitar comes noodling its way in, tossing its jangling post-punk vibes all over the place. If you want, skip to the 1 minute mark, wait about 20 seconds, and you’ll still get that emotional musical release we’re all seeking; a blast of shoegaze opens the curtains to a fairly empty stage that reveals the matter-of-fact vocal delivery set to the front of the mix while guitars dance about in the distance. Dammit. This band fucks. Look for their If Not, When? EP on October 11th.
Hailing from Hull in England, allow me to introduce one of my favorite new upstart groups bdrmm. The band manages to create their very own unique style of slacker, sludge rock combined with just a hint of shoegaze and emo stylings. Take for example this new song “Question Mark” which is a slow burning jam which will draw you in and keep you listening for the full 6 minutes. I’ve hit play upwards of 5 times on this one today and I find myself totally entranced and sucked in. Hope you enjoy it as well.
This song appears on a new Singles Club release from UK label Sonic Cathedral which can be purchased now.
Feel like I haven’t unearthed any Spanish pop music of late, that’s until Sonic Cathedral/Elefant sent this Linda Guilala (band not person) track my way. The band are fresh off the release of 2018’s Psiconautica, so they’ve decided to carry on in 2019 with a slew of really powerful singles. Here we find them delving into their psychedelic tendencies, both in sound and visuals; there’s a heavy ride of fuzz that courses through the vein of this song, but don’t let it fool you, as the pop underbelly is still omnipresent for the duration. The single is out Friday in a limited 7″ format, so get into that!
