New weekend, new edition of this energizing mix
with seven knock-outs to inflame body & soul!…
1/ ‘I Fall’ by CHAIKA
A mesmeric Krautrock beat growing intensely with every bloody second. Glowing guitars, exploding vocals and a dazzling drive to get lost in. Did I mention this is the B-side of their new single? Dope cut. After Hookworms & Eagulls another steamy gang out of Leeds, UK
New single: The Quietness / I Fall – on iTunes

2/ ‘Haunt Me’ by PRISM TATS

3/ ‘Magic Landing’ by HOLY WAVE

4/ ‘Caterpillar’ by HONEY RADAR
Led by singer/songwriter/producer Jason Henn this swirling five-piece generates garage jingle jangle that will mess up your brains and you’ll love it. A ramshackle guitar killer.

5/ ‘Wasting Away’ by ADAM & ELVIS
They say: ‘We are ambassadors of creative alternative pop‘. I say: ‘They are damn right‘. This vibrant track jumps all over the place, in all directions, making you deliciously dizzy. Yes, sir, inventive pop spiced with sparkling electro dynamics, brisk vocals and a top chorus.

6/ ‘Stop’ by SAFE TO SWIM
Smashing opener of this firm rollin’ power pop quartet’s first EP. The kicking bass/drums groove will test your head’s flexibility and the anger loaded refrain is one to scream along.

7/ ‘Down And Out’ by BLACK LIME
Striking debut single from this solid knocking British foursome. A hammering eruption with a pumping rhythm artillery, boiling riffs and agitated vocals. High voltage stuff.
