Five Firecrackers To STAY ON TRACK IN THE WEEKEND!

4/5/6 June 2021

5 new firecrackers to boost your favorite 48 hours…

‘So May We Start’ by SPARKS (Los Angeles)
A sparkling pocket pop opera with Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard joining the Mael
brothers on vocals. From upcoming movie Annette for which they also wrote the script.

Listen here…

‘Stand Down’ by THE SARANDONS (Toronto, Canada)
A cracker “about letting down your guard…maybe doing something crazy like picking up the phone and calling a friend. How punk is that?!”. These Canadians know how to rattle and roll with some Tom Petty gusto and some Stones-esque riffs. Big fun, folks! From their brand new 5-track EP Outrunning. Stream here.

Press play here…

‘Worry With You’ by SLEATER-KINNEY (Washington)
A song about being stuck on the other side of an ocean from someone else.
Pretty funky, brisk, and edgy. From their new, upcoming  LP Path Of Wellness.

Tune in…

‘Never Be The Shame’ by FURTHER THE LION (Hamilton, Ontario)
The song “reminds the listener that sometimes something profound can happen to
you that changes you to your core and it’s not always a negative thing.”
Expect emo-grunge melodiousness with a passionate edge, a romantic feel, and a gripping chorus that sticks instantly. Touchdown!

Here’s why…

‘Something Real’ by FHANG (Canada)
Mishka (half of this Canadian duo): “At the beginning of lockdown I would quietly dance in my living room at 3am listening to a rough version of the tune. It would turn into a disco with all the fire trucks and ambulances lighting up our curtains.” Weird experiences in weird times. This second single is movin’ smoothly on a groovin’ bass line while the sensitive mid-tempo ballad resonates like a reflective and melancholic The National reverie. I love it!

Check it out…

See/hear you next week, music junkies
