5 new firecrackers to fuel for the weekend…
‘I’M WAITING FOR THE MAN’ by MATT BERNINGER
The National’s frontman Matt Berninger is part of the impressive cast
of artists covering each a track of the historic 1967 debut LP on an
upcoming tribute album for The Velvet Underground.
Here comes your man…
‘Monster Love’ by THE JACKLIGHTS (Boston, US)
This is my favourite track from this tight trio’s new 5-track EP Drift. It’s a jagged jackhammer that rotates full steam ahead driven by hammering drum beats, ablaze
guitar layers, and poppy vocals on top of it. Need electricity to load your batteries?
Monster Love will satisfy your needs. Damn right!
They just wanna turn you on…
‘Highway To Hell’ by TOM MORELLO feat. Bruce Spingsteen and Eddie Vedder
The Rage Against The Machine guitarist announced his new, third solo, album, titled
The Atlas Underground Fire, out in October. One of the tracks is a cover of AC/DC‘s
1979 massive slam dunk Highway To Hell with awesome vocals by Spingsteen and Pearl Jam‘s main man Eddie Vedder.
Hell is this way…
‘The Blues Came In’ by THE BURNER BAND (Leeds, UK)
This Leeds’ rockabilly and roots duo brings the shake-and-twist of the 50s back to 2021. They rattle and roll, they riff and rock with a swirling pace. Get those dusty dance shoes out of the closet and make your move. Big fun guaranteed!
The track is from their debut album Sings and Wonders out 3 September
through Shed Load Records (vinyl) and digitally/CD via Bandcamp
Dance yourself dizzy right here…
‘Be The Only One’ by RISE CARMINE (Canada)
A song “about catharsis. It invokes the feelings of those who are subservient
to an autocrat and their dreams for release from oppression; a Shakespearean
betrayal under cover of darkness.”
Expect a psychedelic groove with a bluesy touch, electrical vibe,
catching progression, and reflective vocals floating all over it. Yes!
Be the one here…
See/hear you next week, music junkies
