First up is Roxy Agogo. He/she/they are from Glasgow and according to NME he/she/they:‘sound like a gothic experiment to fuse the sleaziness of fellow Glaswegians Baby Strange with the synth-glam of early Eno’.
Apart from a couple of seconds at the beginning and end of the track, not much happens in this promo, which appears to be a loop of a 60s actress who looks not unlike Helena Christensen posing in front of some mirrors. All rather mysterious.
This is When You Dress Up:
Next up is White, a name that Google offers over one billion suggestions for when you enter the word as a search query. This is another Glasgow based act and that’s about all I can tell you about them although I can again quote NME, who said of this track: ‘[It] bounds along with an irrepressible Talking Heads groove, sprinkled with crystalline ’80s synth lines, before eventually morphing into the kind of full-blown space wig-out that Bowie would be proud of.’ See what you think, this is Living Fiction:
And finally a wee mention for The BB Guns, a band from Toronto that I previously covered here.
They have a fantastic new six song EP just out, named after the lead track Bang and it’s available as either a download or cassette. Definitely worth hearing, folks. A new video shot by Cabot McNenly, will be out in the very near future and it will very likely end up on For Malcontents Only.
