And today the quartet dropped another fresh jam. TALKING HEADS clinks, clanks and clatters terrifically. Expect some deranged bass, a mind-boggling forth and back cadence and crispy vocals. Funky waywardness from start to finish. Check it out right here…

‘INTO THE VALLEY’ – Classic Ripper By SKIDS (1979)…

Knockouts from the past

29 April 2019

Scottish new punk wave band SKIDS with frontman Richard Jobson and
with the late great Big Country guitarist/singer Stuart Adamson scored
their biggest hit INTO THE VALLEY back in 1979. It was the opening track
on their debut LP Scared To Dance.

A glorious scream along belter written by both Jobson/Aadamson about the
recruitment of Scottish youngsters into the army and more specifically about
a friend who was killed while on duty in Northern Ireland. The single peaked at
#10 on the UK singles chart. Here we go…

“Ahoy, Ahoy, Land, Sea and Sky”

Fresh Brighton Unit HOLY MAGICK Bewitches With Trancy Psych Groove ‘EVEN THOUGH’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

29 April 2019

Band: HOLY MAGICK

Who: New project started by producer Dom Keen (Dark Horses/Death In Vegas)
and Siobhan Lynch (ex Interscope artist/collaborator on Alan Wilder’s Recoil)

Track: EVEN THOUGH – new single from upcoming debut album

Score: This is one of those mesmerizing trance-like grooves that sticks instantly, that infiltrates your inner hi-fi audio system before you’re aware of it and that intoxicates
your state of mind the way you really want it. ‘Even Tough‘s seductive and magnetizing melody is simply irresistible and the sensual vocals that glide all over it reinforce the
whole psychedelic experience. I wouldn’t have minded one bit if this enthralling electro earworm would have lasted for twice as long at least. Here’s why…

Singer/Songwriter MATT WATTS Seduces With New Delightful Single ‘RACHEL’…

Relaxing vibes for the laziest day of the week…

28 April 2019

American singer/songwriter MATT WATS based in Brussels, Belgium is blessed with a remarkable voice and knows the art to use it for seducing reveries and tender musings. His new album is planned for next year, but in the meantime, Watts will spoil us with two stand alone singles. Here’s the first, called RACHEL. A sweet little diamond, a sepia-colored beauty that will warm your heart and soul.

It’s “a previously unreleased track from the sessions with Nathalie Delcroix and Bjorn Eriksson for the album ‘How Different It Was When You Where There‘. The inspiration of its blend of Western style and Synth evokes something perhaps reminiscent of early Haruomi Hosono or something Lou Reed, combined with the Dickens-esque lyrical scenario of a dead Aunt appearing to the writer in a dream and showing him around a select few American cities” explains Watts.

Sit down, relax and enjoy…
