A brand new SEVEN IN THE MIX for a brand new week!
Seven steamy strokes I played on repeat these past days
Seven terrific tracks to feed body & soul all week long
Turn up the volume! Music is the dope! Here’s the stuff!
1/ ‘Don’t Be Afraid’ by SO MANY WIZARDS (Los Angeles, CA, US)
After two LPs and EPs this self-declared dream punk quartet returns with a highly spellbinding jam that infiltrates your bloodstream instantly. The key riff speeds up,
slows down, restarts while this prepossessing crackerjack turns into a transfixing
trance-like experience, also the high-spirited vocals enlarge the mystifying impact.

2/ ‘Are You Ready To Go’ by MORNING HARVEY (Brisbane, Queensland, Australia)
Sticky earworms like this put a giant smile on my face. The combination of infectious tunefulness and hooky guitar electricity works tremendously well. This bouncy corker
is from their upcoming debut album, entitled ‘With the Pinstripes‘ out on 21 September.

3/ ‘Twin’ by VOIID (Brisbane, Australia)
Here’s a female gang of “hellish girl-shriek that makes your face melt and your boyfriend cry.” Their amplified exultation and loud & clear outspokenness comes right at you with flaming flare. Steamy stuff you can scream, shout, yell and go totally bananas to! Hell bloody yeah!
4/ ‘Small Spaces’ by MICAH P. HINSON AND THE MUSICIANS OF THE APOCALYPSE
Ahead of new LP ‘When I Shoot At You With Arrows, I Will Shoot To Destroy You’ London
artist Micah P. Hinson and his apocalyptic apostles released new single ‘Small Spaces‘. Turbulent, charged and puzzling. A fully powered, wayward guitar-driven performance.

5/ ‘Cold Feet’ by SPACEY JANE (Fremantle, Australia)
Gripping pop passion from down under. This indie 4-piece produces an engrossing mix
of sticky melodiousness, passionate vocals, electrical swagger and vivid orchestration.

6/ ‘So Much’ by SHAPES ON TAPE (Brooklyn, New York, US)
A self-declared “Brooklyn-based Brew-Wave/Ultrapop group whose infectious hook-laden
3-minute bangers represent a new era where loud guitars and synths can coexist and party together. ‘So Much’ shines like a glittering disco-ball with a remarkable vox up front!

7/ ‘Fetters And Feathers’ by CILIENCE (Los Angeles, CA, US)
Cilience‘s songs “fuse poetic lyrics with driving rhythms and intricate melodies“. ‘Fetters And Feathers’ is the most catchy and hooky cut from their same titled 4-track debut EP that displays the band’s stimulating passion. You can stream the EP in full on Bandcamp
See/hear you next week, music junkies…
