Shivers Down Your Spine With The Gorgeous ANGEL OLSEN Performing New Single Live…

30 July 2020

I just can’t get enough of ANGEL OLSEN. Her voice is both divine and real, captivating and heavy-hearted. Only yesterday she shared single ‘WHOLE NEW MESS’. The title track of her new, upcoming album. A chilling ballad.

Yesterday night she played the song live on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in a quarantine studio. Her arresting performance is just breathtaking. Shivers down your spine grandeur. And did I already say she’s awesomely gorgeous? An angel, indeed.

“When it all fades to black, I’ll be gettin’ back on track”…


Brighton’s Frisky Indie Rockers BLACK HONEY Score With Summer Anthem For 24-Hour-Beach-Party-People

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

After their highly praised self-titled debut album Brighton’s ambitious indie rockers
BLACK HONEY – formed in 2014 – led by natural cool born frontwoman Izzy B. Phillips return with sickly sticky jingle ‘BEACHES‘. Again this most thrilling and multifaceted
combo mixes pop and rock into a 3-minute glittering melting pot.

New ripper BEACHES is “a cheeky twisted collage of all things weird, set to a playground
clapping song. It’s all eye rolls, punk gigs & girls in polka dot bikinis. A nonsense filled retro world I wanna disappear into at times like these.”
says charismatic frontwomen Izzy B. Phillips

BEACHES is a solid gold holiday anthem. Frisky fun for 24-hour-beach-party-people.
Surf pop rapture for this strange summer will never forget due to that pain-in-the-ass virus.

Clap along, swing and shake along while keeping distance and go gaga…

The God Of Fuck Is Back – MARILYN MANSON States That ‘WE ARE CHAOS’

New sonic impulses…

30 July 2020

The self-declared God of Fuck is ready to wake us all up with his 11th album, entitled
WE ARE CHAOS (indeed, we are). Look out for its 9/11 release. He recorded the fresh
full length before the pandemic hit the world as if he knew what was coming our way.

Manson stated about the new longplayer and its title track “When I listen to ‘We Are Chaos’now, it seems like just yesterday or as if the world repeated itself, as it always does.
This was recorded to its completion without anyone hearing it until it was finished. But just
like an LP, it is a flat circle and it’s up to the listener to put the last piece of the puzzle into
the picture of songs.”

“Making this record, I had to think to myself: “Tame your crazy, stitch your suit. And try to pretend that you are not an animal” but I knew that mankind is the worst of them all.
Making mercy is like making murder. Tears are the human body’s largest export.”

Listen to doom and gloom stomper ‘We Are Chaos‘ here…

ALEX KAPRANOS (frontman Franz Ferdinand) and French songstress CLARA LUCIANI found each other for a cover of ‘SUMMER WINE‘, one of the many hits of 60s glamorous duo Lee Hazlewood and natural beauty Nancy Sinatra. Seductive pop sensuality at its very best

Kapranos and Luciani‘s take has a sexy touch as Luciani sings French, her native
language (sexiest language on the planet) bringing French fab couple Serge Gainsbourg
and Jane Birkin.
