Stabbed Panda Presents: Felix Martin

Stabbed Panda Presents: Felix Martin Gear and Technique Interview So this edition of SPP is a slight deviation from the regular format. We managed to catch the amazing 14-string guitarist, Felix Martin, whilst on his 2014 UK tour with Tech-Fest. We had a tight schedule and a non-usual location, so felt it wouldn't be right to try and make this like the previous editions of Stabbed Panda Presents. So there you have it. Lastly, thanks to Camblast Promotions for hosting Felix Martin that evening - without them this interview wouldn't have happened.

Stabbed Panda Presents: The Centimes

Stabbed Panda Presents: The Centimes Review and Interview Kicking off Season 2, Liam chats with The Centimes.

Stabbed Panda Presents: The Centimes by Stabbed Panda Presents... on Mixcloud

 

Review by Jack Gunner.

Like the European currency unit they share a moniker with, Cambridge indie-pop trio The Centimes are both a relic from the past and timelessly current in their sound.  The trifecta, formed of drummer and lead vocalist Amy Devine, guitarist Adam Woodsford and bassist and backing vocalist Jasmine Robinson, draw from a variety of influences from shoegaze to indie to Blondie-esque punk, describing themselves as a “far out three-piece-multi-harmonic-sepia-toned-rainbow-boned group”. October 2013 saw the trio release their first single, and the subsequent year has seen them glide into the circle of Cambridge’s most talked about up and coming indie bands.

Centimes2
Little Table opens with a gloomy guitar into strongly reminiscent of PJ Harvey’s Stories from the City tracks, before launching into a simple, catchy alt-rock track with heavy Fleetwood Mac vibes.
I’m Fine kicks off gently with a slower beat reminiscent of the Corrigan-era, early Beautiful South numbers. A flurry of gentle notes floats dreamlike from the twelve string coupled with some great harmonisation and slow, hypnotic lead vocals.
Local Pool, (hopefully not Parkside), is a heady jangle-pop number, with some more outstanding vocal harmonisation, and a soft, steady drumbeat. "The party’s over, so find another party", the refrain repeats, and though the listener admires their resolve, one might think they could be out of look in Cambridge on a Wednesday night.
Stormy Tuesday jolts us with it’s punchy bass, over a playful shoegazy guitar -  the influence from My Bloody Valentine is most apparent here, as if the Irish alt-rock titans had got lost in Cambridge, got stoned and gone punting.  In perfect keeping with the hazy blues of the title, Devine’s vocals here are jaded but still determined.
Centimes1
The Centimes achieve something not too many bands do with this release – they sound like they’ve been playing together forever, with superbly neat harmonies and, through the use of the twelve string and acoustic bass, subtle yet powerful instrumental ability – eminently listenable and showing of great potential.
