Dreams Take Flight
A new album – A sonic journey channeling Jodorowsky’s mystical surrealism and an enviable dreamy innocence

Band of Holy Joy coverTwo years after the release of ‘Neon Primitives’, with a pandemic enveloping the globe, Band of Holy Joy remain creative, inspired and inspirational while preparing their next release ‘Dreams Take Flight’. Uncompromisingly romantic and poetic, in spite of the much ‘heavier’ collective mood from which their lyrics have sprung, the new album dares to dream about a post-dystopian world.

If you don’t learn to laugh at life it’ll surely kill you, that I know-BROM

logo playlistMarch was a dark month, especially in the UK as it was the month when the lockdown measures were put in place, creating a new situation even for the reclusive misfits of society. The sonic output of this month was rich but we did not find it as easy, to identify truly exceptional releases. There were many EPs and albums that confused us both with the plurality of their influences and with the fact that the bands seemed to be unable to make sonic sense out of all this. Once again it was the most experimental approaches to sound that fascinated us and a spirit of relentless energy that has been retained and enhanced from all-time favourite bands.

“As long as music is loud enough, we won’t hear the world falling apart”(‘Jubilee’ Derek Jarman)

logo playlistJanuary is typically a ‘quiet’ month in terms of gigs but very rich in its sonic output in terms of album releases. As a new decade has started and the world has not ended (sic) our favourite releases from this month are tracing a sonic path that took us from lyrical gothic to blues and from heavy psychedelia and industrial syncopation to dreamy and eerie soundscapes.

“A poet is a nightingale who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds.”
-Percy Bysshe Shelley

October was one of the most inspiring months of this year in terms of its independent music output, not only because Stephen Mallinder has released his first solo album for 37 years, but also because SWANS have ‘broken’ their self imposed hiatus. In October we also had the chance to enjoy some great debut releases by new bands showing a strong DIY element. If this monthly playlist was a person, they would be a kooky, abrasive and gothic looking one.

“If I do something that depresses, it’s because political life and history is depressing”-Anselm Kiefer

August tends to be a ‘quiet’ month in terms of album releases as the attention is focused on outdoor festivals around the world. There have been instances where we have welcomed very powerful albums during August in the past and this year was no exception. If there is one word that could summarize the effect of all these albums, then this word would be ‘raw’. There was nothing ‘delicate’, gentle or calming about the music that we loved and which formed the soundtrack of the previous month and below you can find out why.


First of all New Model Army‘s new album ‘From Here‘ has brought with it, the sonic heaviness with logo playlistwhich they have ‘hit’ us with, in ‘Between Dog & Wolf’, a fascination with nature, a poetic, existential, introverted sincerity and political comments dressed in captivating metaphors and humour. Because of the fierceness and unapologetic manner with which the subjects of this album, have been communicated, we consider it to be the ‘guide’ of this whole soundtrack. Read more about what we loved in the heavy sound of this album here.
