More brief news of vinyl releases…
THE JUST JOANS
Scottish folk-pop outfit, The Just Joans’ You Might Be Smiling Now… (Fika, www.fikarecordings.com) Homespun tales from everyday people. No gloss, no pretensions.
KJETIL MULELID TRIO
Kjetil Mulelid Trio’s Not Nearly Enough To Buy A House (Rune Grammofon, http://www.runegrammofon.com). Quiet, sometimes complex jazz but driving and insistent and offering an attractive musicality. The melodies drawn you in.
Prog, “sludge” and horror from Upcdownc, I, Awake (upcdownc.bandcamp.com) combines almost ambient reflective synth and effects work with hard-edged guitar and rock explosions in a post metal instrumental framework.
