Despite the European heatwave you’ll dance yourself gaga when hearing this swirling electro banger storming out of your boiling speakers. Sickly exhilarating! Hot stuff!

Rousing guitars, mesmerizing female/male vocals and a pushing rhythm section turn
this dynamic corker into a sprightly stroke, impossible to resist. Dazzling performance!

Former member of Johnny Thunders‘ 70s Heartbreakers and his gang go totally apeshit on their new killer single. A nasty punk outburst fueled with filthy Sex Pistols riffs. New album ‘Wacka Lacka Boom Bop A Loom Bam Boo‘ out next month. Get your safety-pins ready, folks.


9/ ‘Butterfly’ by THE BLACK DELTA MOVEMENT (Hull, UK)
Ominous, magnetic and intoxicating. Smells like devilish spirit to my ears. This feverish journey goes on like forever. An electrifying and trippy mindfucker with a boiling finale.


10/ ‘Destroyer’ by LALA LALA (London/Chicago)
Its infectious swagger and flamboyant chorus turn this affecting song into a sonic
stand out. Lala Lala launches her new, second album ‘The Lamb‘ on September 28.

See/hear you next week, music junkies

TURN UP THE VOLUME’S Selection Of Five Brand New MUST-HEAR Albums…

New longplayers that will have an impact on your ears and your speakers

1/ ‘The Room In The Wood’ by THE ROOM IN THE WOOD (Liverpool, UK)
The Room in the Wood is a collaborative project featuring Paul Cavanagh and Dave Jackson. The first since their band ‘The Room‘ split in 1985. The duo designed a wondrous record that sounds intriguing and pure, that feels soulful and heartwarming and reminds me, now and then, of gloomy Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen moments. Compelling songwriting.

Available via Bandcamp and iTunes

2/ ‘You Can Run… You Can’t Hide’ by ACESKULLY (Fort Lauderdale, FL, US)
Aceskully is musical tandem Ulysses Perez and Kayce Armstrong. Their new LP is just amazing. Adventurous trips with influences by experimental legends David Bowie,
PJ Harvey
and Depeche Mode among others. Stellar mix of gripping electronics, stirring
pop dynamics and remarkable male/female singing. Tour de force in sound and vision!

Stream here

Available on iTunes

3/ ‘Room With A View’ by ECHO COURTS (North Carolina, US)
Modern-day pop balladry influenced by exquisite Americana singer/songwriters of the past. Like a 21st Century Gram Parsons with glimmering guitars, punchy melodies, striking vocals. Emotional reveries for the twilight hours. Touching, comforting and melancholic.

4/ ‘For The Rest To Rest’ by VEDA RAYS (Brooklyn, NY, US)
Ardent contemplations drenched in passionate and sparkling orchestrations. Both darksome and elevating. An amplified blend of electrifying sentiments with sonic echoes
of 80s British New Romanticism. From dreamy ballads to glowing flares. Starry-eyed!

5/ ‘I, Kaleidoscope’ by BROKEN BELLOWS (USA)
The combination of colorful tunes, atmospheric synth layers,
rich arrangements and Beach Boys harmonies turns this debut
full length into an impressive and punchy pop performance. Top!
