Elsehow – Patterns CD
Patterns is the debut album from Elsehow (singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Piero Delux). It’s a beautiful collection of original songs that range from art-pop through to synth pop, plus three covers of material by artists who Piero cites as major influences (Talk Talk, Brian Eno and Scott Walker). It’s an album ideal for the summer with lots of shifting, shimmering sounds and Piero’s plaintive vocals, but it’s definitely bittersweet with minor keys and songs of love and loss.

The German Ocean – The German Ocean CD
“Once upon a time, we looked outward”…. The German Ocean formed in late 2020, a partnership between Darren j Holloway of SINNEN and Gavin Martin. It very quickly became apparent that the sounds and shapes coming out of this pairing were a significant departure from those of the SINNEN collective, harking back to Darren’s days as producer of filmic ambient mini-scores but with a fresh, harsher, darker edge. There was something timeless in the mix, something oceanic in the sound, moments and phases reminding the listener of a Great War era submarine chugging ghost-like just below periscope depth. The eight songs on this eponymous debut formed, floated, swam and dived through the cold waters of The North Lands, perhaps hinting at a reminder that things were not always so introspective as they seem now, and that maybe our better futures lie somewhere beyond renamed borders and sea masses. Welcome (back) to The German Ocean.SKU: SBCA078
