A brand new SEVEN IN THE MIX for a brand new week!
Seven splendid strokes I played on repeat these past days
Seven terrific tracks to feed body and soul all week long
Turn up the volume! Music is the dope! Here’s the stuff!
1/ ‘Mushrooms’ by YES YES WHATEVER (Melbourne, Australia)
Crazy, deranged and bloody cranky, that’s exactly how these garage misfits sound like, probably stimulated by quality mushrooms. And their band name is wacko too. Hallelujah!

2/ ‘Kids’ by HEY BABY! (Brisbane Australia)
This poppy jingle jangle surf punk kick will electrify all your limbs, instantly. Amplified ecstasy to go completely bananas to. I guess, this happens when Aussie kids have fun.

3/ ‘Comrades’ by RODNEY CROMWELL (London, UK)
These electronic DIY waves feel like sonic sunbeams on your face. Atmospheric, uplifting and refreshing. Cut from Cromwell‘s upcoming ‘Rodney’s English Disco‘ EP – info right here.

4/ ‘Iterate’ by CRUSH DIAMOND (Houma, LA, US)
Swirling electro duo out of Louisiana producing steamrollin’ electricity that will mess up your mind and all of your senses. Get up and shake it, here’s some booming firework…

5/ ‘The Suffering Of Spiders’ by TRAITRS (Toronto, Canada)
Bass driven darkwave passion for the nightly hours. Melodic gloominess sounding both eccentric and affecting. From debut LP ‘Butcher’s Coin‘ – out 25 May via Pleasence Records
6/ ‘Gladiator Contender’ by John MOuse (Cardiff, Wales)
Mysterious, yet sweet and highly catchy story/tune with singer/songwriter MOuse assisted by a young girl’s touching voice. From his new LP ‘Replica Figures’. Stream it on Bandcamp

7/ ‘Pink Thoughts’ by TOPOGRAPHIES (Bay Area, Oakland, CA, US)
Californian shoegaze vibrations with sparkling The Cure guitar echoes. Multi-layered, harmonious, melodic and weirdly tender. This dreamy beauty is available on Bandcamp

See/hear you next week, music junkies…
