Tracks of 2017 (50-41)

50. Stillhound – ‘X, Y & Dread’ ‘X, Y & Dread’ is a very stylish song, which is very sparing with its sound, never over-doing anything, with electronic sounds range from punchy and in your face – perhaps even discordant – to subtle, nuanced and quiet. Stillhound have a distinct style, which this release suggests isContinue reading “Tracks of 2017 (50-41)”

Photo Review: Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival 2017

In a chaotic affair we ending out not having any reviewers up at Belladrum this year, but we felt we’d be missing out if we called a halt on our photographers Allan Lewis and Stewart Fullerton going, so up they went and they got some great shots. Here’s some of the picks that we thoughtContinue reading “Photo Review: Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival 2017”

Reverieme – ‘Ten Feet Tall’

Following on from last year’s long-awaited debut album, Straw Woman, singer-songwriter Louise Connell, better known as Reverieme, has wasted no time in releasing new material with ‘Ten Feet Tall’. As soon as the opening drum fill kicks the track into life, ‘Ten Feet Tall’ sounds as massive as it’s title would suggest. It wouldn’t soundContinue reading “Reverieme – ‘Ten Feet Tall’”

Premiere: Reverieme – ‘Sure’

‘Sure’ is the third track to make it to video from Reverieme‘s third full-length, the intrinsically beautiful Straw Woman, and it’s our pleasure to be the first to bring it to you here at Rave Child.

Reverieme – ‘Venus’ [9th Story]

The Staves must have misplaced a sister; it’s the only logical explanation as Reverieme exposes a voice that would melt iron on her latest track ‘Venus’. Whilst I scratch my head trying to remember how to spell R E V E R I E M E, I levitate harmoniously along as the song continuously ascends.Continue reading “Reverieme – ‘Venus’ [9th Story]”

Tracks of 2015 (20-11)

30-21  –  20-11  –  10-1  –  EPs & albums 20 Tuff Love – Duke [Lost Map] Eerie harmonic vocals combine with jangling rhythmic guitar to produce elusive lo-fi sounds in ‘Duke’, arguably the pick of the tracks featured on two wondrous EPs fro Tuff Love in 2015. The lyrics are meshed in amongst distorted melodies, the chorus isContinue reading “Tracks of 2015 (20-11)”

Reverieme – Or Else The Light [9th Story]

In contrast to her previous musical foray, With Up So Floating, Reverieme (or Louise Connell as she’s known when not in a dream sequence) has created a collection of simple, elegant songs to set your heart aflutter. As WUPF stated its intention with higher production value and an unmistakable immediacy, new EP Or Else TheContinue reading “Reverieme – Or Else The Light [9th Story]”

Martha Ffion, The Pooches, Reverieme at The Hug and Pint, 13/8/15

Some pretty bizarre, yet all in all positive, mitigating circumstances see me only making it down for the last song of Louise Connell’s, aka Reverieme, set. Still, from what I see she comes across comfortable bantering with the crowd before closing on a mandolin only track, that’s leagues better than the last act I sawContinue reading “Martha Ffion, The Pooches, Reverieme at The Hug and Pint, 13/8/15”
