A brand new SEVEN IN THE MIX for a brand new week!
Seven top-notch tracks I played on repeat these past days
Seven ardent strokes to feed body and soul all week long
Turn up the volume! Music is the dope! Here’s the stuff!
1/ ‘For Free’ by THE CAPTAIN’S SON (Long Beach, CA, US)
Highly exciting retro surf pop kick driven by an irresistible jingle jangle beat making us Europeans longing for the summer. The band release a new self-titled EP on 10th March.

2/ ‘It Doesn’t Matter’ by SECRET CAMERAS (London, UK)
Amplified pop electricity with flashing guitars, pushing vocals and an overall dazzling drive to get completely lost in. This fresh four-piece will release their debut EP on 17th March.

3/ ‘Art Prostitute’ by MANKIND (Stockholm, Sweden)
Nasty slo-mo garage rock drones while we hear the twisted story of a white wig prostitute. B-side of this new single is a wicked cover of Lou Reed‘s Waiting For My Man. Listen here

4/ ‘The Mound’ by GIRLS IN SYNTHESIS (London, UK)
They say: “We’re an obtuse punk trio, formed to aurally represent the noise and violence of the modern world.” I say: play this bloody loud, wake up your neighborhood and start a riot!

5/ ‘Cruise Ctrl’ by JESSE KONRAD (Tucson, Arizona, US)
Former member of folk outfit Fischer Kings going his own way. After his 2016 debut EP here’s a new track. An elevating, richly arranged, ecstatic pop cruise you’ll play on repeat.

6/ ‘Telephone’ by SALT PETAL (Los Angeles, CA, US)
A tropical cocktail with a ska touch. A vivid mix of bright melody, swirling rhythm and a ‘here comes the summer‘ feel. The band will release 3rd album ‘Rare Hearts’ on 28th April

7/ ‘Hourglass’ by GOODMAN (Brooklyn, NY, US)
Singer/songwriter Michael Goodman sounds like a country pop cross between Ryan Adams and Jake Bugg, melancholic and uplifting at the same time. You can stream his brand new excellent album ‘The Vicissitudes’ here on Bandcamp

See/hear you next week, music junkies…
