The swiss “shoegazers” Last Leaf Down return with their second album and are delivering an overwhelming soundscape of dark and atmospheric melodies. Their previous work Fake Lights was released in 2014 through Lifeforce Records. The soft guitars, the dreamy atmosphere and the whispering voice were the main characteristics of this release. Nevertheless in Bright Wide Colder we can appreciate an evolution of their sound, sometimes unclassifiable, but certainly we can notice many different elements like shoegaze, post rock, gothic rock or even metal. Last Leaf Down perform this amazing mix like you won't hear it by any other band.

Back in November last year, the first single called “The Path” was released, deploying a completely new musical universe with a vast number of different guitar sounds, drum rhythms and new vocal tones. At that time, I had the feeling that something bigger would come and I was right because we are in front of one of the best albums released in the last couple of years. The production on Bright Wide Colder is gorgeous, the sound quality is amazing and the musical richness is incomparable. The more you listen to this album, the more you discover new details.

It’s so very addictive, believe me that you won’t stop listening to this masterpiece so easily, and after a while you'll gonna need your daily dose of their music. It’s difficult to point out at any song above the rest but “Suspire” is the perfection made song, it has a dreamy atmosphere driven by awesome guitars, magnificent drums and epic voice. “Not The Same” is another unforgettable song, again the guitars build an impressive wall of sound. “Dust” is yet another example of what this band is capable to do. No matter what music style is your favorite, Last Leaf Down should take part of your music library, they offer us one of the best guitar driven experiences we can find out there.

Band: Flowers For Bodysnatchers
Album title: Fall The Night EP
Release date: 14 November 2016
Label: Self-Released

Flowers For Bodysnatchers has been a consistently active artist over the last decade. Starting out his music career in the duo dark ambient project, The Rosenshoul, Duncan Ritche quickly made a name for himself. By 2012 Duncan was starting to record under his new solo project, Flowers For Bodysnatchers. It didn't take long for Duncan to attract the attention of Cryo Chamber, where he has been residing since his highly acclaimed album, Aokigahara. After the follow up to Aokigahara, Love Like Blood, Duncan decided to try something a little different. Enter the poetry of Nathan Hassell. Flowers For Bodysnatchers obviously took Nathan's poetry seriously. It truly feels like he took every word of the poems into account. There is never a sense of the process being forced. Duncan's music is already a natural fit for this type of poetry, but Duncan made sure to take all aspects into consideration, never cutting corners.
