Soundtracking #3 – She Makes War

So Laura Kidd, AKA She Makes War, also makes music and visual art too. I’ve read that this type of tunage is classed as ‘gloom-pop’… seriously, is that an actual thing?

I suppose it is a bit angsty and has that poppy harmony melody thing going on in quite a catchy manner…

Regardless of genre, I quite like it so I’m shoving it in your earholes, so there.

Soundtracking #2 – The Charlatans

Rewind and replay.

A quoted lyric sent me off on an audio perambulation of rediscovery and we ended up here.

The Charlatans – who I should have listened to as a teenager. Instead they appeared on playlists almost a decade after they should have. Better late than never…

Loving the Brit pop summer jangle of guitars and a slightly slurred approach to vocals.

Very nice indeed.

 

Soundtracking #1 – Tender Prey

Today I’m mostly treating my ears to the talents of Laura Byron. Otherwise known as Tender Prey (is that a Nick Cave reference methinks?), she creates a self-described sleaze blues sound that  I quite like…Actually, I like it a lot, it sounds dirty and reminiscent of very lazy alcoholic days in hot, dusty places (except she’s from Cardiff).

Best enjoyed with a tequila and a cold beer chaser.
