A brand new SEVEN IN THE MIX for a brand new week!
Seven way-out strokes I played on repeat these past days
Seven charged tracks to feed body and soul all week long
Turn up the volume! Music is the dope! Here’s the stuff!
1/ ‘Doppler’ by CIRCO BOIA (Grosseto, Italy)
This rowdy kick-ass Italian duo roars fiercely! ‘Doppler‘ is a mighty rockin’ trash drone with charismatic singer Erika Fassari spitting furiously like a young, badmouthed Courtney Love. A raw power ripper from brand new album ‘CIRCOBOAI’ – stream/buy here on Bandcamp.

2/ ‘Wasted Youth’ by ANNIE TAYLOR (Zurich, Switserland)
Here’s a girl fronted garage grunge gang describing themselves as ‘a rusty dog searching
for his bone in the expanding universe’. A hungry and energetic beast it is. This thunderous stroke will make your tail go completely gaga. No time to waste, follow your sonic nose…

3/ ‘O’Caledonia by THE JUST JOANS (Motherwell, Scotland)
Scottish ‘life is a fairy tale‘ cynicism wrapped in amplified guitar pop snappiness with an irresistible chorus and choir-like siblings harmonies. It’s gonna be a swinging Xmas in hell this year, folks. From brand new album ‘You Might Be Smiling Now’ – all info on Bandcamp

4/ ‘Weak’ by BLUSHING (Austin, Texas, US)
A bewitching dream pop rainbow sonically colored with angelic vocals and sparkling guitar sequences. A gloomy, melodic pearl glowing like a shiny disco ball in the dark. Delightful track from the band’s sophomore EP – out 18 January 2018 – all info here on Bandcamp.

5/ ‘Sons Of Rage’ by THE DECREES (Dunfermlinen Scotland)
Here’s some Celtic folk inspired pop punk catchiness fueled with festive horns. A vital scream along earworm that will charge your deflated batteries instantly. This euphoric banger is on their 4-track EP ‘Screams From Suburbia’ – available here on Google Play.

6/ Glass Floors by VVYNN (Aalst, Belgium)
Fascinating Belgian trio generating powered pop electricity reminding me of the wonderful Throwing Muses. Passionate vocals, glimmering guitars and a vivacious, pushing rhythm engine. A winning cut from their new 4-track EP ‘LUX’ – available here on Google Play.
