New sonic impulses

30 November 2018

After the surprisingly soft new album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino it seems like
the wild rockin’ years of Alex Turner & Co are over. Today the band confirms its swing of moods again with the previously unreleased track ANYWAYS, the B-side to their new 7″ single with the LP’s title track as the A-side. Sit back, relax and enjoy this modern day’s

Mayhem. Destruction. Escape. Here’s BAD ANIMAL With Their New Jigsaw Single ‘BLACKOUT’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

30 November 2018


Who: “A ravenous Canadian quintet never content with resting easy on their laurels, each of their releases continues to push the band into higher strata. They know, as well as you do, that each new song, each new show, each new album is a test of their mettle, a battle against mediocrity, an artistic expression of the kind of freedom that redefines reality.”

Track: BLACKOUT – single from new, upcoming album – the band says they want you to feel three things when you set your eyes (and ears) on their smashing art piece that they created: Mayhem. Destruction. Escape.

Score: This.Is.Fierce.Jigsaw.Electricity.Fueled.With.Mean.Guitars.And.Raging.Vocals.You.

Quote - kopie (2)

Eleven killer tracks played on heavy repeat in November!
A heated melting pot of flaming rippers and glowing grooves
energizing all of my senses and all of my limbs this past month!
Here’s Turn Up The Volume‘s Knockout November Team!

1. ‘Ride’ by GHXST (Brooklyn, NY, US)
Multi-guitar-layered drones and murky electronics create an ominous tension that feels both mystifying and hypnotic. Tenebrous vibe with arresting effect. Intoxicating score!

2. ‘Cave Person’ by PEUK (Belgium)
New Belgian sensation balancing between legendary giants such as Sonic Youth and
The Breeders, with vivid panache, thirsty passion and edgy strokes. Debut LP early 2019.

3. ‘Too Real’ by FONTAINES D.C. (Dublin, Ireland)
One of the hottest and most challenging bands of the moment. ‘Too Real‘ is a febrile rollercoaster jam with frontman Chatten asking urgently on repeat “Is it too real for ya?“.


4. ‘Be Alright’ by THE DANDY WARHOLS (Portland, Oregon, US)
Catchy swinger from upcoming LP to start their 25th birthday orgies on record & stage.

5. ‘Hang On’ by THE LEGAL IMMIGRANTS (Grand Rapids, Michigan, US)
This is a blistering ripper, growling like a rioting act of rebellion against complacency. with an ongoing drumfire cadence that energizes every nerve in your body. Let’s all stand up & act!


6. ‘Knockout’ by SOMEDAYS (London, UK)
Their jingle jangle influences are obvious, but their youthful dynamics push the beat to razor-sharp level. This dazzling ripper will circulate in your mind for some days. Bingo!

7. ‘Methathonin’
by DESTROY BOYS (Sacramento, CA, US)
This turbulent female driven Californian three-piece re-injects riot grrl’s vehemence and feminist punk outspokenness with fresh adrenalin. Check their new LP ‘Make Room‘ here.


8.’All Dolled Up’ by PARLIAMO (Scotland)
A stormy uppercut from its first swaggering beat to its flamboyant finale. Banging drums, hurry-scurry guitars, nasty bass, edged vocals and a scream & shout-along chorus. Top!

PARLIAMO: Facebook

9. ‘I Want More’ by AL MOSES (Wales)
Barbed wire riffage, stomping beating, vocal spitting, and an overall rowdy panache that gets you in the right mood to kick all bloody Trumps and Mays off this messed-up planet.

AL MOSES: Facebook

10. ‘Peculiar Form Of Sleep’ by WOVOKA GENTLE (London, UK)
Richly orchestrated and terrifically arranged pop kick, spiced with multi-layered harmonies and exalting synths. You will experience this jaunty crackerjack like being on a carousel.


11. ‘Stowaway’ by FAVOURS (Toronto, Canada)
A melodious rainbow with harmonious male/female vocals, vibrant electronics and twinkling guitars creating a cocoon you want to hide in now & then to refind yourself.

London’s Singer/Songwriter ISHANI Is Going Through… ‘STORMY EMOTIONS’

New sonic impulses


29 November 2018

Artist: ISHANI

Who: London based Singer/songwriter/producer “combining her colourful background and cheerful character with the moody downtempo sounds that influenced and shaped her as an artist; she breathes some much deserved new life into music.”

Track: STORMY EMOTIONS – New single – A song “about the death of a relationship and the overwhelming pain that can come with that. It is also however about moving into a new phase of life, from the darkness to light.”

Score: The hypnotic, bass-driven, electro chill-out groove of this brooding humdinger makes an instant impact from the very start and with Ishani‘s crystal clear voice on top
of it you’ll get the sense of a mystifying experience, even spooky with some creepy backing vocals popping up now and then. I’m sure trip-hop legends Massive Attack would love to have this magnetizing performance on one of their albums. Yes, it’s that impressive, it’s that ravishing. Tune in and drift away…
