Mechanical Roller Coaster – Irish Turbo ARJUNA’S EYE Shares Video Clip For Album Track ‘CORTEXIPHAN’

Clips that impress eyes and ears

11 August 2020

What once originated in Canada as a one-man project, morphed into a
five-headed, Irish-based metal dragon. Last year they attacked the world
with ear-splitting LP Amalgam  (stream below).

Guitarist Conor Nagle about Cortexiphan: “The track as it is now has been
with us as a song for around 3 or 4 years. About 75% of the guitar parts have
been with me for more than 10 years! The opening melody and the chorus are
the newest arrangements, which really make it more thematic and catchy.”

Expect wall-breaking chaos, monstrous guitars, ghastly drum drones, and
barbarous howls. I know, sounds just like today’s reality. Let’s jump on this
mechanical roller coaster and have some Doomsday fun. File next to your
Slipknot records and the soundtrack of Apocalypse Now!

“I like the smell of Arjuna’s Eye in the morning.

Brigthon Popsters ZOONI Float Eight Miles High With New Single ‘THE DETAILS’

Band: ZOONI

Who: Brighton-based art-pop makers ls. Discovered by Mercury and Brit
award-winning producer Charlie Andrew (Alt J, London Gramma, Marika Hackman).

Single: THE DETAILS 

Score: This little ethereal pop symphony goes forth and back in ardency and
euphony. A beautifully orchestrated rainbow with a psychedelic touch floating
in the air on a cloud nine. Sensitive, pensive and hankering. Strumming guitar

Dream here…

Alone With Everybody – ‘HELLO FRIENDS!’ Is The Fourth Single Of Upcoming Album From JUJU WINGS

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

11 August 2020

JUJU WINGS is a Welsh synth-pop duo that hit the music scene four years
ago with versatile electro debut album (I’m Not A King…) Or Anything .

Since the month of May they reside in their own dreamworld bubble sending sonic
signals monthly to our messed-up planet until their second full length is completed.
So far we discovered three tracks on our aural radar: Seagull Republic, Escapism 101
and The Wonder.

Hello Friends!
is the fourth message they send us from their phantasy cocoon.
It’s the title track of the upcoming longplayer.

The song is “a longing call to all the people who have been in one’s life, to all the good times spent together, and to the search for new connections. “Hello friends!” is a sonic journey that allows the listeners to meander on the sobering realisation that, as individuals, we are truly alone. By the end of the song, it becomes clear that we are the only actors of our fate and
that loneliness is just an essential self-inflicted state of mind.”

Makes me think immediately of the title of
Richard Ashcrof
t’s debut LP Alone With Everybody.

Sonically ‘Hello Friends!‘ invites us to join Juju Wings on an imagery stroll while wondering who we all really are. The melancholic sentiment is a yearning desire
to get control of our individual fate. The sound is romantic, laid-back, and idyllic.
The National and Cigarettes After Sex are not far away.

From their bubble to yours…

PEACHES Covers T.REX – Put On Your Glam Disco Shoes For ‘SOLID GOLD, EASY ACTION’

10 August 2020

Gloriously controversial fatherfucker PEACHES is also part of the Marc Bolan tribute LP called ‘AngelHeaded Hipster: The Songs of Marc Bolan’. Other artists such as Joan Jett, Kesha, Devendra Banhart, Nick Cave, and Father John Misty feature on the longplayer. The tribute was put together by the legendary producer Hal Wilnerr who sadly passed away
on 7 April from coronavirus.

Marc Bolan will be inducted into the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame soon.

Peaches picked groover Solid Gold, Easy Action
and turned it into a funky bang-bang disco stomper.

Time to get out of your lazy quarantine couch and dance, dance, dance…
