5 new firecrackers to boost your favorite 48 hours…
Band: A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS
Who: Infamous psych-noiseniks from Brooklyn, NY
led by founder/mastermind Oliver Ackermann
Track: END OF THE NIGHT
TUTV says: A razzle-dazzle and spine-and-mind-chilling thriller sounding
like Nine Inch Nails going punk, Spacemen 3 returning from the dead and
The Brian Jonestown Massacre freaking out on acid, all at the same time.
This is what happens when lockdown blues leads to schizophrenia.
Step into the darkness…
Who: Swirling indie rockers from London
Track: HEY ANNABELLE – new track from the band’s
upcoming, second LP – out 14 May. Order-info: here.
TUTV says: If a band introduces a new piece as follows “Putting the ‘angry’
in ‘Shangri-La’s’, this is arguably our pettiest song“, you just want to press play
and go gaga. Punked-up energy, in-your-face vocals, amplified top pop shot.
Press play for some ass-kicking rawk ‘n’ roll…
Who: Dream-pop quartet from Los Angeles
Track: BURN THROUGH THE ATMOSPHERE
TUTV says: Close your eyes and you’ll hear the starry-eyed voice of Harriet Wheeler, front lady of former daydreamers The Sundays. You’ll also hear romantic pop sparks floating somewhere up there in the blue sky. Summer is in the air.
Enjoy the trip…
Artist: LUKE SWEENEY
Who: Singer/songwriter from San-Francisco
Track: TIE MAO TO MINED
“This song has traveled a long ways and continues to morph in a variety
of ways, but the theme remains: it’s a mind you can trick into confinement,
consignment, or alignment,” says the author.
TUTV says: Back to the 60s, back to the psychdelic flower power era,
back to never-never land, while the restless mind continues its endless
quest for freedom.
