5 new firecrackers to boost your favorite 48 hours…
‘Psalm 23’ by COLD CAVE (L.A./New York)
This darksome Krautrock groove gets under your skin from the get-go and moves like a
nasty serpent. From the nightmare rockers’ new EP Fate In Seven Lessons out 11 June.
‘Under The Waves’ by FUZZY LIGHTS (Cambridge, UK)
The song deals with the devastation of coral reefs, ocean resources, and our natural world. It’s a multi-waves-layered cruise, with featherlight romantic vocals à la The Sundays‘ lovely vox Harriet Wheeler, violin flashes, gusty drums and a charged guitar finale. This is a band that cares about nature and their music. From the band’s new 4th album Buriels.
‘The Garden’ by 3 LITTLE WOLVES (Birmingham)
Sounds like a little symphonic psych-rock trip starting with a rambling drum riff
that comes and goes and ghostly vocals floating all over it. Sonic spiritually, that
grows on you after a couple of plays.
‘Born 2 Boogie’ by SUNSHINE & THE BLUE MOON
Some are born to be wild, some are born 2 boogie as did the late great Marc Bolan
(T. Rex) back in the 70s and these Canadians know how to move and groove too. Glorious organ, glorious flow, glorious swagger, glorious vocals. From their upcoming album, out 25th June.

‘How Dare You Want More’ by BLEACHERS (NYC)
Jack Antonoff and his band premiered this new track on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show.
A tremendously uptight tune with a shake & swing sax climax. From upcoming album
Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night.
See/hear you next week, music junkies…
