ESBEN AND THE WITCH released their second album for Matador (“Wash The Sins Not Only The Face”) earlier in the year to an increasingly receptive critical response, losing some of the denser and more impenetrable moments though still hardly falling into the category of “easy listening”, and while it’s all appeared quiet on the hometown front, the summer has been spent touring festivals across Europe with July seeing them perform a live film score to “La Atena” at the East End Film Festival.
TEETH OF THE SEA aren’t taking things lightly, and have a plan grander than most bands would dare to dream of, let alone put into action. Third album (“Master” on Rocket Records) was memorably described as “…a shattered mirrorball of a record fit to transform and transfix all that surrounds it in 2013 and beyond”. Great words, but to back it up with an album of deeply visceral multi-layered sonic bombardment was the real triumph.
THOUGHT FORMS are part of the ever intruiging coterie of Bristolian acts who find their way to Geoff Barrow’s Invada imprint (see also the likes of Beak>, Team Brick, Crippled Black Phoenix…), though despite also recently being invited to be part of Adrian Utley’s Guitar Orchestra, there’s a lot more muscle, more psych, more garage to their sound than you’d find with a simple Portishead patronage. New album “Ghost Mountain” out a mere few months back.
