Weaning Lambs returns this week with five cuts of music from around the world. We spent a little more time in the UK this week, spoilt by some music that just had to be shared. Matthew & Me, from Devon, deliver a beautifully touching cut, while in London, Talmont deliver such ethereal beauty, the same goes for the forever glowing Aloric, their new cut is masterful. In Australia, we hear from the mighty talented solo work of TOMSEA, and along the Gold Coast, well, you will be surprised what you will find, Yes Sir Noceur ft Aquial Young, is simply not GC.
Weaning Lambs Matthew and Me
Based In Devon, United Kingdom
Flavours of Big Scary, Death Cab For Cutie
Listening to Matthew and Me’s latest single ‘Silver’ reveals a beautifully produced cut, that is shoots straight to the heart with its gentle nature. Guitars twinkle and dance about in front of electronic bleeps that playfully hang in the background. With a sense of freedom and hope, Matthew Board’s, vocals soar to a chorus of memorable proportions.
Weaning Lambs TOMSEA
Cut Brain Damage
Based In Adelaide, Australia
Flavours of The XX, Jesus & The Mary Chain, Deptford Goth
TOMSEA aka Tom Barton has modestly tinkered with music for the last 20 years, playing in various Adelaide bands, blending his interpretation in shoe-gaze, electronica and post-rock influences. Returning as TOMSEA, ‘Brain Damage’ is a 6 minute, almost medley of genres, starting out all dark-infused with a stripped back tone, growing into an underground electro rhythm, sewn together with intricately placed guitars. This is mesmerising and sinister yet, strangely uplifting.
Weaning Lambs Talmont
Cut Buried In Gold
Based In London, United Kingdom
Flavours of Daughter, The Duke Spirit, Howling Bells
Perhaps it’s London’s time again, 2016 has spawned some outstanding artists, many of them taking influence of the darker sides of our minds. So goes for Talmont, with the quintessential deep bass shuffling rhythms, drifting reverb guitars and a compelling vocal. Talmont, have delivered a perfectly melancholy and powerful cut. Gripping. Such a find, that we have added the Youtube clip too.
Weaning Lambs Aloric
Based In London, United Kingdom
Flavours of Radiohead, Wild Beasts, The Antlers
Rounding off our slightly British theme of indulgent melancholy cuts from London, Aloric continue to work on the powerful palette of epic music, ‘Fate’ showing true signs of the band really understanding what they have the ability to offer to the music world. Stemming from minimal beginnings, ‘Fate’ builds to a spine-tingling crescendo that is powerful and emotionally crushing.
Weaning Lambs Yes Sir Noceur ft Aquial Young
Cut Turn To Fire
Based In Gold Coast, Australia
Flavours of Tame Impala, Summer Camp, La Sera
Yes Sir Noceur (pronounced no-sir) deliver ‘Turn To Fire’, a mind- bending cut that meddles with syncopation, musical genre and emotion in such a way, that by the end of the 4 minutes and 44 seconds, you can easily feel you have just experienced an entire album. There’s a lot to offer here, but at its closure, there is a realisation that what is offered is simply band with sheer skill and mastery of songwriting.
