DEAP VALLY Surprises With Gripping Unplugged Version Of ‘TURN IT OFF’…

‘Turn It Off’ by DEAP VALLY

As an homage to the nineties the utterly cool & noisy blues rock ladies of DEAP VALLY decided to record an EP with four of their favorite songs of last year’s booming album FEMEJISM stripped to the bone. John Stavas created a moony clip for TURN IT OFF, one
of the four tracks chosen to play without electricity. It also happens to be my fav one. If you never ever heard of this amazing duo nor the song in question you probably would say that Patti Smith just shared an unreleased and unknown track which she recorded somewhere, some time in a dark smoky bar with David Bowie on saxophone. Yes, that good! Genuine tenderness! Relax, open that delicious bottle of red Bordeaux, dim the lights, light some candles and press the button, here’s some honest sentiment…

Today’s Yesterday Track… DAVID BOWIE’s Monumental Single ‘LIFE ON MARS’ Released 44 Years Ago…

Golden oldies to soundtrack the summer of 2017…

Artist: DAVID BOWIE
Track: LIFE ON MARS
Released : as a single 22 July 1973 – 44 years ago today
Album: the awesome song was already on the legend’s 1971 Hunky Dory LP, but only came out as a single almost two years later reaching #3 on the British charts. Mick Rock filmed/directed the promo clip backstage at Earls Court Arena (London) on 12 May 1973.
Note: still a stunning song and an outstanding vocal performance. Timeless gem. Top!

‘Don’t Hold The Door’ by FLOOD COASTS

FLOOD COATS is a fresh Los Angeles collaboration between Joel P West (guitar, songwriter, film composer) and Darla Hawn (drums, vocals). Next week their debut album VAQUITA will be out (28 July). According to a press statement, the record ‘channels the spirit of 80’s pop like Fleetwood Mac and Hall & Oates through dream-pop sounds reminiscent of Beach House or Tame Impala. Fuzzy analog synthesizers and punchy brass arrangements follow
tight grooves, all supporting lush vocal melodies that are traded off between Joel and Darla throughout the record. All nine tracks invite listeners in with catchy melodies and beautiful production, but are rich with musical complexities and introspective lyrics for those looking to dig a little deeper.
But first, DON’T HOLD THE DOOR, one of the LP’s tracks the band just shared. A delectable, highly catchy electro pop vibration with a reflective touch. A richly colored synths harmony with Hawn‘s impressive & soulful voice shining throughout…

GRUPPO DI PAWLOWSKI – Voodoo Noise Rock That Activates Your Darkest Side…

Band: GRUPPO DI PAWLOWSKI
Mastermind: Mauro Pawlowski is Belgian’s most eclectic artist who’s obsessed with music 24/7 for many years now. A most intriguing personality with countless sonic projects and eccentric sound adventures on his extensive CV. From his Dutch Serge Gainsbourg persona to the devilish demon he is with his Gruppo gang. A living legend who ALWAYS did/does it HIS WAY. No wonder that I am a Pawlowski addict since day one. Two of his most famous bands: 90s underground explorers EVIL SUPERSTARS and renowned art rockers dEUS.
Location: Boomtown Festival, Ghent (Belgium) – 20 July 2017
My ears & eyes impressions: live Gruppo Di Pawlowski is a haunting noise monster with Mauro leading the inflammable troops as a voodoo priest, with Satan in his ass, waking up the crowd’s demons. This frantic performance felt like a spiritual psycho gathering, like a freakish seance. Darkly magical, nightmarish, mind-blowing, metallic and gloriously loud! Wham Bloody Damn Trash Bam!
Gruppo Noise: if you never heard of this turbulent rowdies, here’s a banger – from
new smashing album ‘In Inhuman Hands‘ – to test your speakers’ flexibility…

Picture this…


Release the bats…


‘I want your sick souls…’

Enter The Magical World Of ELECTRIC DJINN…

Vibes that thrills us in a way we want to scream out loud…

ShouToUT

Artist: ELECTRIC DJINN
Who: ‘part musical, part performance art project of Neptune Sweet, a new age artist who is based in New York, but derives influence from the many corners of her ever-expanding earth. For Neptune, Electric Djinn is a creative outlet for finding a balance between new age sound and the chaotic order of the world as she sees it. The interplay between these two elements and the incorporation of a holistic approach to music gives Electric Djinn its unique and striking sound. Grounded in low frequencies, programmed beats, topped with virtual synths and processed vocals, layered in binaural beats, isochronic tones, and the sweet smell of the oceanic.’
Track: ‘Deer Xing’
Video: ‘A labor of love that took a year to bring to full completion and brought together the creative minds of Larilyn Sanchez, Vandana Jane and Sarah Kipp, who worked with Neptune to bring her vision into reality’
My impressions: chill-out electro beats with a Massive Attack touch. Truly spectacular clip. Most inventive video I saw in years. A must see-hear-feel outlandish twilight experience…
