Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

30 April 2019

Up and coming London sensation BLACK MIDI already showed loud and clear why they are the talk of alternative town with blistering live shows and their build up/break down track Crow’s Perch. 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…

The spirit of The Fall’s debut EP Bingo-Master’s Break-Out!. Ramshackle racket!…

Jangly guitars, ace pace, poppy synths and a scream/sing/hum along chorus. Top!

Snappy garage stomper with sharp-edged guitar licks and Doherty‘s characteristic vox…

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

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

29 April 2019


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…

Boston Duo DYR FASER Tranfers You To Never-Never Land With New Track ‘NOT THE OTHER SIDE AGAIN’

Brand new sonic impulses

28 April 2019

Once again imaginative Boston duo DYR FASER consisting of Eric Boomhower and Amelia May shows their love for coloring outside of the lines. Far-out is their normal.
They are natural born atmosphere explorers. They operate in a sonic cocoon of their own.

Their brand new track ‘NOT THE OTHER SIDE AGAIN, from their upcoming EP, confirms what they’ve done so many times before but, as usual, in a different way. Here’s another mind trip, another soothing meditation, another tranquilizing fantasy. Spacey, playful guitars and hazy vocals float all over an ongoing repetitive bass beat and transfer you
to never-never land away from our stressful reality. Don’t hesitate, dream here…

HISTORY – 27/28 April 1996 – Legendary OASIS Shows At Maine Road Manchester…

Six months after the release of their breakthrough masterwork album (WHAT’S THE STORY) MORNING GLORY? Manchester legends OASIS played two massive sold out concerts at MAINE ROAD MANCHESTER in the former football stadium of their beloved MANCHESTER CITY team. On 27 and 28 April 1996, the Gallaghers & Co wrote history. Joined by 80.000 (over the two days) the band had their dream come true by playing the ground of their Sky Blues squad. The two historic days were captured on film. The docu
‘…THERE AND THEN’ was released on video in October 1996 (still have my copy) and on DVD in 1997 (re-released in 2001). Supersonic stuff! Let’s look back in ecstasy.
