BEAVIS And BUTT-HEAD Are Back And Who Of The Two Is A Fan Of South-Korean Boys Band BTS?

4 August 2022

BEAVIS and BUTT-HEAD, the dumb-ass hard rock fanatics return
on Paramount+ in a new episodic series from 4 August on (tonight).

To prepare us for their lunatic adventures, Paramount dropped a 2-minute
video clip with a very surprising question. Is Beavis a fan of South-Korean
boys band BTS?

Series creator Mike Judge tells us ‘why BTS’? : “BTS is a guilty pleasure — but maybe not even that guilty: I like them. I have pretty mainstream tastes. I think because I used to be a musician, people think I’m going to be a music snob. I’m not at all. I like a lot of very sugary pop music. We did that a little bit with Bon Jovi in the ’90s, Beavis liking them more than he should.”

Really, Beavis?

I’m on Butt-Head‘s side…

VIOLET NOX – Boston’s Space Cowboys Shared Psychedelic Pink Floyd-esque Video For ‘MAGNETAR’

30 July 2022

Act: VIOLET NOX
Who: Experimental electro duo, Dez DeCarlo and
Andrew Abrahamson
, from Boston who collaborates
frequently with other artists.

Last April the Boston space cowboys released their notable
5- track EP ERIS WAKES. It was named ‘EP Of The Week’ here
on Turn Up The Volume. You can read the here.

To keep the momentum going the synth tandem has a new
video out for the EP piece Magnetar. Think of British trip-hop
explorers Portishead and Massive Attack.

The video reminds me of a Pink Floyd documentary showing the legends
in their early days playing with eye-puzzling psychedelic LSD inspired
visuals on a big screen behind their backs.

Ambient Trio ‘GmBt Life’ Share Obscure Clip For Cranked-Up Blowup ‘TRUSTED’ Off Their New Album

For your eyes

10 July 2022

Band: GmBt Life

Who: France-based trio from different countries, who live in diverse regions, and who routinely meet to play music. They like to begin with bare melodies and then improvise with various instruments and PCs.

They released a new, excellent, longplayer called 10 Minutes last April, with a mix
of tranquilizing piano-driven musings, cinematic reveries with spacey Pink Floyd-like reverberating here and there, and tender, ambient synth meditations.

For the only cranked-up piece on the album, named TRUSTED – 125 seconds of blistering mania with a crackling bass upsurge and a paranoid guitar attack, GmBt Life just shared an obscure and puzzling video clip. Weird stuff.

They have to be trusted
By the people
That they lie to

Video Of The Year So Far… Is A Visual Spectacle By THE CHRONICLES OF MANIMAL AND SAMARA

For your eyes

2 July 2022

Band: THE CHRONICLES OF MANIMAL AND SAMARA
Who: London-based duo – Daphne Ang (Singapore) and
Andrea Papi
(Italy) – that fills a gap in music by bringing
literature, art, and history together into a space where
rock and metal meet electronica.

This always surprising  duo launched their sophomore LP
Trust No Leaders yesterday (more about this new ace
achievement next week).

One of the metallic highlights on the album is THE CHEFS SONG.
A rumble of menacing thunder. 130 seconds of brutal turmoil.

And its video clip is as stupefying as the track itself.

Manimal and Samara are formidable sound and vision artists…

Let’s cook…
