This past month’s best…
A maddening cocktail of roaring rippers and sassy strokes.
Fifteen jackhammers that heated up my isolation days!
Here’s Turn Up The Volume‘s Knockout May Team!
‘Skimmington Ride’ by SEX SWING (UK)
Apocalyptic and intimidating barnstormer matching these science-fiction-like times.
Contender-of-the-year single from their contender-of-the-year album TYPE II. Yeah!
‘Behajung’ by ELEFANT (Belgium)
Exotic designed title track of Belgian’s Krautsludge and sound-exploring crusaders from their new Sturm und Drang longplayer. Shake your belly and pirouette yourself dizzy. Fab!
‘Mr. Motivator’ by IDLES (UK)
Punk rebels hit again with riff crazy corker made to start crowded moshpits at gigs. Bingo!
‘Crossbow’ by TAMAR APHEX (Israel)
A shattering juggernaut, dynamized by a rattling machine-gun drum and a mind-blowing bass vibrancy. A 24 Karat score you’ll have on repeat for quite a while. Flabbergasting!
‘IW2BWU4EVR’ by FANTASY NON FICTION (New Orleans, US)
Resplendent roaring ‘n’ roll jingle having a vertiginous effect on your limbs. From
the band’s multifaceted, rad self-titled debut album. Advice: play this very loud!
‘Celebration’ by RHYS BLOODJOY (Manchester, UK)
Electro-industrial madness mixed with psycho wave lunacy. Bloodcurdling synths whipped up by a bone-chilling cadence. From stunning debut album Human.Pattern.Repeat.
‘I’m Not Getting Excited’ by THE BETHS (New-Zealand)
A boiling ripsnorter pushed by rattling riffs, heated hooks, and lively licks. Supersonic!
‘Suck My Mind’ by CHEMTRAILS (UK)
High-voltage roller fueled by ruthless percussion, guitar extravaganza, 60s organs and ecstatic vocals. From their fresh must-hear album The Peculiar Smell of the Inevitable.
‘Just Friends’ by SMALLTOWN TIGERS (Italy)
The Stooges fronted by Joan Jett with the Ramones sniffin’ glue in the producer’s room. Riot girls firework from Italy. Check their mad debut longplayer Five Things. 1-2-3-4!
‘Seed Of Evil’ by BLACK NEEDLE NOISE (Norway)
A colossal, diabolic electronic drone thumping mercilessly as a brain-fucking hammer causing thunder and lighting electricity. Be ready, Armageddon is just around the corner.
‘Black Love’ by UNRULY GIRLS (Italy)
Head-twisting sledgehammer as dark as the night. Jaw-dropping industrial killer from their new, storming Epidemic album. A decibels-loaded beast of a record! Sonic nightmare!
‘Fresh Air’ by GREAT HARE (Sweden)
Electric-powered slacker swagger, glimmering guitars, glowing vocals, and a tenacious chorus. Impossible to resist. Probably the best piece of this Swedish quartet. Top stuff!
‘POS’ by THE BUNDY BUNCH (Norway)
Furious. Red-hot-angry. Discombobulated. Pulverizing and disordered. You can burn
your poor ears by listening to this crashing bang. Let that be a loud and clear warning!
‘It Ain’t Water’ by ALISON MOSSHART (US)
When the lady sings the blues. Second striking solo single from The Kill’s wonderful singer.
All together on Spotify…
See/hear you next month, music junkies…
