Groovin’ And Movin’ – New Longplayer ‘JUDAS’ by IMMIGRANT UNION

of The Dandy Warhols and Bob Harrow, Immigrant Union is a local band with
international rock royalty heritage.
Album: JUDAS – the band’s third longplayer

Info: “The album was attacked from a completely different angle than Immigrant Union’s
first two records, allowing the band to have virtually no time constraints whatsoever when recording… Sonically, the band kinda wanted the album to sound like Len’s Steal My Sunshine… As well the release of their first LP in five years, 2020 will also see Immigrant Union release a short film, ‘The Battle of Bella’, shot in Joshua Tree, CA.”

Keywords: The Byrds, immigrant lives matter, Bruce Springsteen,
talking shit, The Beatles, groovin’ Americana and movin’ Aussiecana,

One Festival Track A Day Turns Summer Into Holiday – dEUS At Pukkelpop Festival Belgium – 2009

Memorable festival flashes from the past to heal this summer’s ‘no festivals’ pain…

‘Theme From Turnpike’ by dEUS at Pukkelpop Fest, Belgium 2009
Released as a single from their 2nd LP In A Bar, Under The Sea (1996)
One of the best live bands ever, I can tell as I saw them about 25 times.

Mind-boggling performance…

Mind-Cracking And Spooky – Here’s ERRORR With Debut Single ‘SMASH HIT’

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

.

30 June 2020

ERRORR is the solo project of the Swedish Berlin-based musician Leonard Kaage.
He is the guitarist of awesome post-punk band The Underground Youth and
also played with Anton Newcombe‘s psych gang The Brian Jonestown Massacre
and Canadian femme fatale Tess Parks.

Error‘s first single, entitled SMASH HIT is an electrically guitar powered chainsaw-like stunner. Both mind-cracking and spooky with Leonard Kaage ‘s reverberating voice
wailing like a troubled soul wandering lonely in the dark. Think Thurston Moore on
one of his hellish crusades. Pretty psychedelic, pretty haunting, pretty infectious.
I am already waiting for some more of this brain-breaking stuff.
