Show notes for the 308th Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast featuring music by performers from or in Malta:
Cryptic Street – Indecisive
A new all-girl pop rock group on the local music scene will certainly go a long way to diffusing the testosterone saturated environment. They look good and sound fresh enough to attract mainstream attention so expect this song to be played on the radio in Malta over the coming weeks. Let’s hope they’re not a one hit wonder and at least make a dent on the local scene if not beyond.
Wyrd Animals – The Beach Song
Not a particularly impressive band were it not for the fact that they’ve managed to release a recording of their debut gig as a name-your-own-price download on Bandcamp. Recorded live at Coach & Horses where they appeared supporting Hey Sus on 4 August, the EP was released on 12 August. I expect to be wowed again by this band but not necessarily with their ordinary sounding songs.
Myopic Destiny – A View Upon the End
Another debut release from the metal scene this time. The Harsh Cold Reality is set for an official release at V-Gen on 1 September 2012 during gig this band will be giving with X-Vandals. The have some refreshing sounds to offer within their genre, as you can hear from this song, but it would be safe to assume that their best work is still ahead of them.
Plato’s Dream Machine – Qawsalla F’Nofs Ta’ Triq
Why didn’t anyone tell me about this new song from PDM? Perhaps it’s because it was widely circulated on Facebook and YouTube so it’s assumed that I’ll get to it somehow anyway…perhaps by osmosis. Robert Farrugia Flores and Justin Galea have written a gem of a song here and while I doubt it will become a classic, it certainly shows that the band have come a long way from their early days of sounding like a cheap Dylan cover band. More please!
