Debrecen, Hungary. CD Inverse Records 67 mins Experimental progressive rock www.ghosttoast.hu https://www.facebook.com/ghosttoastband Rating 90/100 Debrecen is the second-largest city in Hungary and was previously labelled  ‘the Calvinist Rome’ due to a religious...

Samantha Josephine: The Finished Touch (2021)

This is a direct continuation of the work displayed by Samantha on the Fly Bird Fly EP which came out a few months ago, except this time around she has managed to secure the services of drummers Mars Slater Vitai and Olive Konai, who between them share the duties on...

Black Sands: Apocalypse Of Eden (2021) single

To my mind this single is long overdue, as I have been lucky enough to catch these guys play live a few times this year and they always put on an amazing show. Comprising Cameron Owens (guitars), Ruaidri Keens (guitars), Matt Hammond (bass) and James Trimmer (drums)...

Pass the Peas: Pop (2022)

This three-track EP is the latest release from Poneke-based quintet {Pass The Peas}, who describe their music as Wasabi spicy Rock n' Roll, whatever that means. To my ears it means they play mid-paced alternative pop rock with a strong concentration on the gravelly...

Tall Folk: Wiser (2022)

2021 was a wonderful musical adventure for me as I threw myself into the NZ music scene, and towards the end of the year I realised that with nearly 200 reviews of local music I really should work out my Top 10 singles, EP’s, albums and gigs (check out...

Powder Chutes: Sweet Noise Pollution (2022)

There is always that little hint of concern when reading a press release for a new EP and realise it contains a quote from yours truly for the single which was taken from it. How would they take it this time around if I panned this release? Luckily, I have always...

Fool’s Lagoon: Bizarre (2021) single

This is the debut single from Auckland-based quintet Fool’s Lagoon. Mark, Connor, Joe, Matt and Joshua have created a bright and summery indie pop jangler which is heavily guitar-based yet is somehow light and airy throughout. The rhythm section bounces along, the...

Jon Downes: The New Normal (2021)

Jonathan Downes is a naturalist, cryptozoologist, author, editor, filmmaker, poet, novelist, activist, journalist, composer, and singer-songwriter, best known for being the Director of the Centre for Fortean Zoology. On top of all of that, I am so pleased to be able...

Michel Polnareff: Live at the Roxy (1996)

Over my years of friendship with Thierry Sportouche, I have become used to envelopes turning up from time to time with either books or CDs which he believes I may find interesting. The CDs always used to be ones he had been sent for Acid Dragon and he was wanting me...

Non Serviam: Le Coeur Bat (2021)

There is nothing pleasant about this whatsoever, and nor is it designed to be. This is not music to listen to gently in the afternoon as pleasant background to calm the children, but rather is a dystopian metallic nightmare to be played on headphones incredibly loudly...

WHAT”S GOIN’ ON

  • Retreat From Moscow – The World As We Knew It
    by Leo Trimming on January 18, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    The World as we Knew it is the debut album of the rather strangely named Welsh melodic rock band Retreat from Moscow. They may be new to most people, but when someone with the ear of the excellent Robin Armstrong of Cosmograf sees fit to release their album on his Gravity Dream label then it’s [&hellip

  • Somalgia – Inverted World
    by Nick Hudson on January 17, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Black Metal. What do those words conjure in your mind? Even though I know and like some black metal that does not fit this stereotype, as soon as I see or hear a band described as black meatal I think of lo-fi one-man-bedroom-bands of dubious talent. Sometimes the lo-fi nature of the recording seems to [&hellip

  • Monarch Trail – Wither Down
    by David Edwards on January 16, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Monarch Trail are a Canadian progressive rock trio, led by multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Ken Baird, Wither Down is their third release. Now, if the band and the album have gone under your musical radar of late, amongst the other fine releases of 2021, don’t be too concerned – they had gone under mine as well! [&hellip

  • Involute – Hindsight
    by Nick Hudson on January 15, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Once upon a time there was a prog metal band named Blind Spectrum. I really enjoyed their music, but could never get on with the vocals of Sean Butler. I always felt that they would be better as an instrumental band, or with another singer. My favourite aspect of Blind Spectrum was young guitarist Wyatt [&hellip

  • Tony Patterson & Doug Melbourne – Dark Before Dawn
    by Leo Trimming on January 14, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Dark Before Dawn is the follow up to The Divide, the excellent 2019 debut album from Tony Patterson and Doug Melbourne, who were previously in the eminent Genesis tribute band Regenesis. Dark Before Dawn has a lot to live up to after the quality and imagination manifested in The Divide, and there are clear connections [&hellip

  • Lyle Workman – Uncommon Measures
    by Bob Mulvey on January 13, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Hold the end of year Best of 2021! Damn, too late… Although released in February 2021, it was purely happenstance that I discovered Uncommon Measures during the recent festive period. So… there I am beavering away on something TPA related, listening to an album on YouTube when the album appeared to become markedly more interesting, [&hellip

  • Mannheimer Schlagwerk – The Numbers Are Dancing: New Works for Mallet Quartet
    by Graham Thomas on January 12, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    The Mannheimer Schlagwerk is a percussion collective which is celebrating its 25th anniversary. It was the brainchild of Dennis Kuhn, who created it to play a one-off event, but it has somehow endured ever since. The group is known for its consistently high class performances, and it has remained true to its ethos throughout that [&hellip

  • A Different Aspect #74
    by Nick Hudson on January 10, 2022 at 7:00 pm

  • Dante – November Red
    by Nick Hudson on January 9, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Around 18:00 on Tuesday 4th January 2022, the German band Dante posted on Facebook to mark the ninth anniversary of the death of co-founder, Markus Berger. As Markus Maichel points out in that post, probably all who have followed the band over the years will know that the last album Berger made with Dante was [&hellip

  • A Different Aspect #73
    by Roger Trenwith on January 8, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    In this ADA album update we feature: • Regal Worm – The Hideous Goblink • Jah Wobble – Metal Box-Rebuilt in Dub • Aquaserge – The Possibility of A New Work for Aquaserge • Stephan Thelen – Fractal Guitar 2: The Remixes A round-up of some corkers from 2021 that I should have reviewed at [&hellip
