L-Space - Backup Baby (Track Review)

L-Space are teeing themselves up for an album, Kipple Arcadia, which will be released in september. I guarantee that it will sound just as majestic as these singles do and "Backup Baby" is no exception to that rule. With Lily's (Lead Singer) vocals sounding as iridescent and melodic as ever, I love that she takes a softer tone on this song, it really amplifies the power of her voice and ultimately it becomes the most powerful instrument throughout this song.

It feels like everyone of these L-Space reviews goes one way and that's me praising them non-stop - but I genuinely have nothing bad to say about the band. And everytime I listen to them I fall more in love with Gordon's keyboard playing, he's the unsung hero of the band but he's also been there from the start and he's just as deserving of praise on this tune because he draws melody in and spurts out a tune that has evolved their sound, more removed from their spaced out tune "Aloe" but more in-line with genres such as prog rock.

But, as readers of KMMR may already know, I'm a huge fan of synth-driven tracks. This leads me on a one track path to loving this song, leaving a lasting note in the memory long after the song has finished. And another thing, this is L-Space's catchiest song, it's one that has been stuck in my head ever since first listening to it. I'm ever thankful for Last Night From Glasgow for signing L-Space up, because it means that we are given this clinical and more wholesome sound as it's clear they're given proper studio time now. I can't wait to grab a vinyl copy of Kipple Arcadia in september and you bet your bottom dollar that I'm praying for a tour!

TOP 50 ALBUMS OF THE YEAR 2017!

50. LCD Soundsystem - American Dream  LCD Soundsystem returned this year after a long time being split up, and it was the year of reunions with everyone seeming to put their differences aside and rake in their money with a big tour. However, LCD produced one of the stand out albums of the year, a side step from their previous projects and produced more anthemic songs. There's some real stand out tracks of the year on this album, it's just a shame about that Microsoft Paint cover.
49.The Mothers Earth Experiment - The Mothers Earth Experiment
I'm not the biggest fan of Prog Rock, but then again maybe I'm just not listening to the right stuff. However, TMEE fall into this genre and they've released one of my albums of the year. Whilst chatting to them about it as part of my 'Introducing...' series it was extremely interesting to hear about the making of the album, it's big influences and that strangely wonderful album cover. A must listen for Prog Rock fan…

Introducing... Space4Lease

Whether you like it or not Psych Rock is back... with a vengeance. There's so many bands bursting on to the scene at the moment and one of the most exciting is Space4Lease. It's hard to describe their music other than saying it's the bands personality, incarnate. Recent single, If It's True, is probably one of their best to date with a strong, power ballad feeling yet such raw emotion behind it. Space4Lease are really catapulting themselves into super stardom and it's time to jump on the bandwagon.

Q. Firstly, the age old question of what does your name mean and where did it come
from?
Walt Blythe: It can be a pretty uninteresting story haha. In March/April of 2014,
Grayson and I were freshly writing songs and not yet playing shows. We had been
recording but hadn’t settled on a band name. As we were driving back to Brandon’s
studio after taking a break to brainstorm ideas, we happened to drive past a sign that
read Space For Lease. We weren’t sure on it at first but …

Introducing... NAMES

NAMES are a band hailing from Wales, a music scene that appears to be bursting at the seams at the moment with phenomenal acts such as Boy Azooga, Estrons & We're No Heroes it's easy to see why a lot of labels are focusing their attention on that area. NAMES are different though, more sincere and genuine than a lot of musical acts out there with a voice to die for and the melodies to match. Their single "Limb By Limb" is an absolute cracker and I recommend checking it out immediately.

Question. Why did you call yourselves NAMES?
Ioan Hazell:
We always felt that Names had a refreshing sense of anonymity (it was also what we had written as the title of the list of potential band names.
Joey Robbins: The fact that it's such an unusual name, and the kind of mysterious vibe it carries appealed to us.

Q. Was there ever the thought process that it was never going to get you to the top of a google search?
IH:
Yeah, thats an unfortunate truth of it, it forces people to le…
