After last year’s rowdy debut EP ‘Skeletons ‘ featuring Under The Moon, one of Turn
Up The Volume’s
knockout crackers of 2018 Danish rocker REBBECA LOU and her band return with the first single of their upcoming longplayer. NOT 4 U is a vehement banger propelled by a merciless drum/bass thunder and infused with nasty guitars going mad around the 2-minute mark. On top of all the stormy havoc comes Lou‘s threatening
voice, cutting like a knife and going fast forward towards a smashing finale. Big bang!

New York City Legends THE VELVET UNDERGROUND Released Their Self-Titled Third LP 50 Years Ago…

Great albums from the past…


28 February 2019


Album: THE VELVET UNDERGROUND – the band’s third LP

Released: 1 March 1969 – 50 years ago

ROLLING STONE‘s legendary journalist LESTER BANGS wrote: “The songs on this album are about equally divided between the subjects of love and freedom. So many of them are about love, in fact, that one wonders if Lou Reed, the malevolent Burroughsian Death Dwarf who had previously never written a complimentary song about anybody, has not himself fallen in love… On the whole I didn’t feel that this album matched up to White Light/White Heat, but it will still go a long way toward convincing the unbelievers that the Velvet Underground can write and play any kind of music they want to with equal brilliance.” Full review here.

TURN UP THE VOLUME says: Not as experimental (John Cale had left in the fall of 1968) and controversial as their previous two LP’s but here’s solid proof that Lou Reed had a natural born ‘pop’ songwriting talent and was ready for his brilliant solo career. Top LP.

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

After their highly praised debut LP Burst Belgian noise rock trio BRUTUS are totally ready to break down the legal decibels level again with new longplayer NEST. A couple of weeks ago the band shared the hot-blooded lead single WAR and today they unleashed another new one called CEMETERY. It’s a red-hot-raging sledgehammer with pulverizing guitars, hell-raising drums and vocalist Stefanie‘s razor-sharp and reproachful voice on top about ‘That girl, I could never trust her she’s a fucking wreck‘. This is pure dynamite that will bring the walls down when played live. Prepare your ears and blood pressure for a volcanic power discharge. Right here, right now…
