A brand new SEVEN IN THE MIX for a brand new week!
Seven lively strokes I played on repeat these past days
Seven top-notch tracks to feed body & soul all week long
Turn up the volume! Music is the dope! Here’s the stuff!
1/ ‘Dawn’ by TEENAGER (Toronto, Canada)
This is unstoppable guitar driven electricity produced by four self-proclaimed musical baristas. Now I know where Parquet Courts got their inspiration from. Teenager released their turbulent, 5th LP last month via Telephone Explosion. Check it out on Bandcamp.

2/ ‘Friend Of A Friend’ by RED RUM CLUB (Liverpool, UK)
This sextet “formed in 2014, combing sounds of old and new channelling ‘Tarntino-esque’ wild western vibes with the help of a solitary trumpet…” New track ‘Friend Of A Friend‘ is vivid proof of their trumpet-iant punch. This banger is highly vibrant and extremely catchy. Top stroke!

3/ ‘Silent Knights’ by MIRROR MIRROR (Spokane, WA, US)
Terrific late 70s/80s echoes on this new track from upcoming album ‘The Love Opaque‘. The Cure and Joy Division are omnipresent in a most intruiging way. Darkly attractive & melodic.

4/ ‘Stuck In A Turnstile’ by THE GAMETES (Poway, CA, US)
This band is “a direct result of corporate chemical-testing gone awry, The Gametes were unnaturally birthed into a fittingly unnatural world”. Actually, we need more jingle jangle weirdos like this Parquet Courts inspired gang dressed like rescued Tsjernobyl engineers!

5/ ‘Bulletproof‘ by LON LON (Pasadena, United States)
Clamorous newcomers ready to make an impact on your havoc hungry ears. Expect some vital passion and agitated vocals with a wicked touch while ardent guitars power it all up…

6/ ‘Let The Good Times Roll’ by BLACKWATERS (Guildford, South East England)
Before idiotic world leaders destroy this troubled planet we need to rock much harder than we ever did before. This boiling hammer will help you to go nuts. Hail BlackWaters!

7/ ‘Virgin’ by DANCEHALL (London, UK)
Electrifying steamroller by “a trio of believers in distortion, energy, and melody and who meld their serrated punk with droning shoegaze elements.” Hallelujah indeed! Impressive slam!…

See/hear you next week, music junkies…
