Royal Chant – Pride & Poverty

The Chanters have returned with another record of loud and fuzzy garage rock.

On offer is the blasting heavy pop rock ‘Power pose’. The track covers various deep and dark themes in an ironic tone with the cheerful sing-a-long chorus “there’s nothing we can throw away”.

There is also the dark humored ‘I get a kick out of being kicked around by you’ which captured the gravelly alt-rock / old school grunge atmosphere held together by catchy guitar riffs.

The record also provides the easiest chorus lyrics to learn and sing to in the form of ‘Yada yada yada’.

In addition to the hard and heavy rock sounds there is also the slower melancholic offering ‘Shooting Sparrows’. This brings out a nice low droning guitar growling along and exerting a fug of distorted fuzzy goodness every so often. Providing the is the perfect Saturday afternoon anthem to sit back and gaze off into space!

autumn – the fall

 

Autumn is Julie Plante (vocals), Jeff Leyda (bass), and Neil McKay (guitars). Forming in Minneapolis in 1994, autumn created chilling atmospheric melodies that would haunt you long after listening. The band released two albums on Tess Records – “the hating tree” (1996) and “return to the breath” (1999), with accompanying tours in support of each album before taking an extended hiatus.

Almost 20 years since their last release, the trio have returned with their single ‘the fall’. The song brings in a mix of Siouxsie and the Banshees and the Cocteau Twins. Racing along full of energy it also has a dark and haunting backdrop! The b-side ‘before and after’ is a slower piece that takes the haunting atmosphere to another level, while enticing you to drift off into the darkness with the music.
