A brand new SEVEN IN THE MIX for a brand new week!
Seven flashing tracks I played on repeat these past days
Seven shining strokes to feed body & soul all week long
Turn up the volume! Music is the dope! Here’s the stuff!
1/ ‘More To Run’ by THE OCEAN PARTY (Melbourne, Australia)
An enchanting dream pop beauty colored with glimmering guitars, soulful piano and reflective vocals. Mesmeric arrangements and orchestrations. Ideal track for a relaxing summer night. From new album ‘Beauty Point’ – out 18 August via Spunk Records.

2/ ‘Fatal Shore’ by NEW LOVERS (Sydney, Australia)
Repetitive, haunting groove reminding me of early Joy Division and the darkest moments
of Bauhaus. This intoxicating serpent will creep slowly under your skin, whether you want
it or not. A top track from their impressive debut album ‘Performance‘ – all details here.

3/ ‘Medicate’ by INDIAN SUMMER (Los Angeles, CA, US)
Elevating rock banger with a sticky scream along chorus that will inspire you to start a rowdy party in your street. From blustery 5-track EP ‘Bummer’ – here on Bandcamp

4/ ‘Never Break’ by MR. AIRPLANE (Boston, US)
Hammering intensity and blazing energy. This experienced 2-piece female turbo did it in the nineties and does it again today with the same husky blues force. Incendiary score!
