Brand new sonic impulses

31 January 2019

American Kentucky rockers CAGE THE ELEPHANT will unleash their fifth album, entitled SOCIAL CUES in April. Ahead of it the band released the lead single “READY TO LET GO’ today. A post-break-up song, probably inspired by the end of frontman Matt Schultz‘s relationship that sounds pretty smooth and poppy on the surface but deals also with paranoia and anger.

THE MAGIC LOTUS Emphasizes Our Fearful Times On New Brisk Single ‘CHANGE THE WORLD’…

rfulDaily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

31 January 2019


Who: Thrilling Greek tandem from Athens who moved to the magical
music city of London in 2015 to unleash their sonic demons

Track: CHANGE THE WORLD – brand new single – their third one

Score: Turn Up The Volume featured this peppy duo before as their high-powered
fusion of firm rock dynamics and emotion-charged tunefulness is quite imposing. Something they prove once more on their new brisk stormer. ‘Change The World‘ is
about fear which leads to paralysis that makes us unable to act and you can actually
feel the stressful tenseness in the song. It’s like the pair has mixed the siren-like guitars
of Interpol with the lively melodiousness of The Killers. Forceful and glowing. A sizzling effort. Feel the electricity here…

ELASTICA Released Their Edgy And Catchy ‘LINE-UP’ Single 25 Years Ago Today…


31 January 2019

Back in 1992 singer/guitarist Justine Frischmann (one-time member of her boyfriend
Brett Anderson‘s group Suede and also ex-partner of Blur‘s Damon Albarn) and drummer Justin Welch formed ELASTICA. When bassist Annie Holland and guitarist Donna Matthews joined, the quartet was complete to hit the London scene. Influenced by the early work
of 70s British punk bands Wire and The Stranglers they released a string of highly catchy crackers. One of them LINE-UP, a song slagging off groupies, was their second single and very characteristic for Elastica‘s sonic identity. Infectious, punky, spiky & sexy. Here we go…

Lyrics Of The Day – Here’s… THE FALL

Living Too Late‘ by THE FALL

Crow’s feet are ingrained on my face
And I’m living too late
Try to wash the black off my face, but it’s ingrained
And I’m living too late
Sleepless, in-control spleen
Agreed ace family
Must have stump tripod in the genes
I’m immune to things
In my dreams
I saw through the trees
O’er the poison river locks
Talk treacherous would beat
But still my heart it is rock
Finally going through old parasite gate
But there’s a 24-hour clock watch
And I’m living too late
Sometimes life is like a new bar
Plastic seats, beer below par
Food with no taste, music grates
I’m living too late
Once talking was my favourite while
But now I know a conversation’s end
Before it’s done
Maybe I’m living too long
The daylight
I see trouble on the streets
Fearing catastrophe to meet
Walk down the devil’s boulevard
But still my heart is hard
They say them cellars [were’t even/were evil] black
But I know they’re wrong
Think it’s one
Living Too Long

From the 1986 album Bend Sinister
