Dream pop from North America

What to say about Walboom?

Walboom are a half Canadian half Australian psych-rock duo on a mission to put the world to rights with the social commentary of their single “Vulture”. The duo have achieved an indie sound that’s been lifted straight from the likes of The Cure and The Smiths, given a heavier dance beat and drowned in reverb. It’s clear that no matter how much reverb is on the track, it is a track to be danced to.

The vocals and instruments drift around, being peripheral for a lot of the time, but the drums are where the action is at in this piece, providing a solid and occasionally overpowering reminder that the track does indeed have a direction; it is a little difficult to understand the lyrics in the chorus, but then again isn’t that idea with spacey sounding dream pop?

The duo began writing and recording songs before the global lock down and as such have had to finish the track from their respective countries.. And they did a good job. All in all, “Vultures” is a funky, space filled track that you can listen and dance to time and time again.

Walboom’s “Vultures” is released on @Petshop on September the 25th and is the first single from their forthcoming debut EP.

John Wiseman- An Odd Collection(Album Review)

John Wiseman is an electronic artist from Hatfield, UK. An Odd Collection is his latest project released  August of last year. It’s an instrumental project that ranges from energetic, to calm and contemplative to a sound that’s bit visceral. It all comes together for an album well worth giving a listen too.

As far as the Instrumentation on these tracks one can expect brightly textured synths, drum machines, occasional vocoder vocals and digitized guitar tones in there as well. All these elements come through in different ways but all still have synergy. “Ants” sets the tone, with high energy, pounding percussion and neon-tinted synths. “Swing The Jazz” is a quirky track that has a horn sound in there and a bit of jazz swing but is juxtaposed with interstellar electronics. “Chasing Bad Guys” is another highlight a hard-hitting piece of work with driving synths and guitars almost has montage vibe to it. Transversely, there are cuts like “Solace Time” probably the most ambient instrumental on the album. Ultimately the best track is final one “Dreaming Of The Cosmos” it has that intergalactic feel and because of it’s atmosphere it’s a little more engaging and immersive than previous records on the project.

In the end, I enjoyed An Odd Collection it featured different sounds and ideas but they all still flow together nicely. There were times I thought the production could be a little cleaner, sharper but other than that I think it’s a collection worth giving a listen too, particularly if you’re looking for a new electronic project to dive into.

Rating: 7.5/10
