Black Market Karma and Tess Parks
The Sky Was All Diseased
From Friends In Noise
Just out last Friday, the new Black Market Karma record consists of six true epics that define and explore the multi-faceted band sound. A mix of psychedelic fuzz and thumping rhythms invents a modern dreamcore schema that sits comfortably among the classics and the up-and-coming. Since the slamming success of Aped Flair & Hijacked Ideas LP which came out not that long ago, the band has been nutrified and empowered by its momentum. The new record has been put together as a collage that consists of music recorded between the band and their peers in music. Black Market Karma is fronted by the amazing Stanley Belton who brings the music to life with his leadership. As well as Tess Parks, Black Market Karma have produced work alongside members of The Underground Youth, The Confederate Dead, as well as the encapsulating Ruari Meehan. As the band embark on their latest run of tour-dates, this LP is perfect to set the scene.
Smooth strumming enters with a breezy blues guitar. The bass section rumbles along with mechanical pace as the melody evolves and shifts like the shape of clouds. Long bars of imaginary sway lead into a slow and dreamy vocal section. Tess Parks offers an intimate and closely held rendition of poetry and verse. Repeating lines sit against choppy blues guitar which in turn is rooted in a driving rhythm. A progressiveness in the guitar track brings wholesome composition to the mix, intensifying the music by just enough to be felt by a princess sleeping on a pea. Before we realise, we’re being drawn deeper into a mesmerism that’s laid out for us in enchanting and charming corridors of sound.
