Madame Mayhem’s “Monster” is filled with malice. With a calculated aggression reminiscent of Don Caballero with edge, the song is all fury. A barely controlled rhythm plows forward with great power, effortlessly combining elements of metal, post-rock, and a hint of thrash. Vocals are brilliant, bold, and confrontational.
On “Take It Slow” OddsLane opt for a laid-back sort of vibe. Creating a casual kind of groove, the song unfurls ever so joyfully. A sly sense of play defines the song, as the players seem to understand each other perfectly. OddsLane create a perfect sort of lazy Sunday afternoon sound with “Take It Slow”.
Fiery in style is Cunning Man Trap’s “Red”. A crazed form of chaos dominates the proceedings. Growing ever more powerful, the song comes a great vortex from which no sound can escape.
With a gentle spirit is “You’ll Stay Right Here” whose lovely work shows off the Commuters’ ability to create a full, beautiful sound. The song’s reflective approach is one of a quiet kind of defiance, of hope. Lead by a crystal clear piano and highly articulate lyrics the song is gorgeous.
On “Troubled Mind” Under the Tongue take a dark twisted approach. Great distorted effects lead the way forward as the piece refuses to sit still. By going for a constantly in flux sea of sound everything feels rather eerie. Serving as the heart of the piece are the unsettling lyrics which feel like the narrative to a nightmare.
Bringing the collection to a playful close is Kyla Imani’s “The Weekend”. A colorful, staccato melody graces the song as it opens up with the utmost of grace. Kyla Imani’s voice feels gentle and kind as the song grows in pure heartfelt joy.
