Eleven killer tracks we played on repeat in September!
A crazed fusion of roaring rippers and galvanizing grooves
energizing all of our senses and our limbs this past month!
Here’s Turn Up The Volume‘s Knockout September Team!

1. ‘Dark Stains’ by EXPLODED VIEW (Mexico/Berlin)
A truly booming dance knockout. Its ongoing menacing and eurhythmic vibrancy is simply irresistible and will put a spell on your senses. New album Obey out today. Stream here.


2. ‘Dirty Boy’ feat. Barry Adamson by A CERTAIN RATIO (Manchester, UK)
The veteran Manchester post punks still make your hips sway uncontrollably. With special guest (ex-Magazine) Barry Adamson you can hit the dance floor and funk yourself dizzy…


3. ‘Danny Nedelko’ by IDLES (Bristol, UK)
A moshpit punk uppercut from the band’s smashing new longplayer Joy As An Act Of Resistance. It will catapult this hot-blooded gang of misfits into the premier rock league.

4. ‘Get Along’ by FADE AWAAYS (Toronto, Canada)
This loud-mouthed corker, made to energize mad crowds, confirms that guitar rock is still alive and kicking! Expect uproarious riffs, a pumping bass/drums force and a killer chorus.


5. ‘Bigfoot’ by DIANE GRACE (Belgium)
Demonic and exorcistic, yet catchy as bloody hell. Hot boiling ripper from this up and coming punk desperados’ debut EP ‘Panic!’. Stream/buy the whole shebang right here.


6. ‘When We Left’ by SOMEDAYS (London, UK)
Its glowing drive, its tenacious pace and its confident dynamic will vitalize your adrenaline’s stream and will activate your nerves. The Strokes are dead! Long live Somedays! Damn right.

7. ‘Graphite’ by TWIST HELIX (Newcastle upon Tyne. UK)
Here’s a wholehearted, passion injected synths power stroke. Ardent, blazing and totally infectious. An anxious crackerjack strongly intensified by frontwoman Bea Garcia‘s vox.


8. ‘The Present’ by MOVIESTAR feat. Professor Elemental (Oslo, Norway)
This is a funky hippy-hoppy party humdinger featuring the wacko steampunk-rapper Professor Elemental. Its funny, trippy, poppy, dancey and totally contagious all the way.


9. ‘The Beast Of Love’ by HERSELF Featuring JONATHAN DONAHUE (Italy/US)
A stirring ballad feat. Jonathan Donahue, angelic vox of legendary New York dreamers Mercury Rev. The song resonates like a sensitive symphony growing fuller along its starry-eyed path. New LP by Herself aka Italian singer/songwriter Gioele Valenti out 19th October.

10. ‘Young Fools’ by SMALL MILLION (Portland, Oregon, US)
A highly charming pop pearl with singer Malachi Graham‘s gracious vox turning the sticky melody into a moony reverie. Ryan Linder‘s poetic guitar play adds magic to this beauty.


11. ‘As One’ by SUEDE (London, UK)
Grand and epic symphony. It’s the magnificent opener from the glam rockers’ new album ‘The Blue Hour‘. There’s a phenomenal choir in there that just blows my mind. Top score!

Belgian Art Noise Rockers DIANE GRACE Launch First Track/Video ‘WEDDING’ From Debut EP…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

7 September 2018

So far Belgian art-noise rockers DIANE GRACE, named after a once-upon-a-time silent movie actress, made an impact on the indie scene with their exorcistic and eccentric live performances trying to visualise a sort of David Lynch nightmares in a theatrical freestyle way while producing a ragged primal punk racket. Frontman Mauro B. is the man in the middle, someone who obviously wants to explore the dark side of his own imagination, who wants to discover what’s behind the closed doors of boring daily-life perception. Today the wayward trio takes their next step with releasing the first track/clip of their debut EP. WEDDING is a raging 90-seconds attack that explodes instantly in your pretty face. A clamorous, orgasmic discharge that ends as suddenly as it started. Watch the accompanying, modern-day Rocky Horror Picture Show clip right here…


WEDDING is the first punch from 3-track debut EP ‘PAN!C’ – all info here

MEET Arty Creepy Crazily Whacky Madly Hurly-Burly Sturm Und Drang Combo DIANE GRACE…

DIANE GRACE – Kinky Star, Ghent, Belgium – 17 July 2018

From Antwerp, Belgium here’s chaotic noise beast DIANE GRACE. A clamorous band you can scare your neighbours with, a theatrical turmoil band you can go totally berserk to, a tumultuous band capable of starting ketchup revolutions in shitty nightclubs, a punk band for psychic patients, a harebrained band of wackos you can cause PANIC with…

Yesterday night they did it again in my hometown Ghent, sounding, looking and acting completely… whizzy, scuzzy, frizzy, queazy, snazzy, exequy, zincky, quacky, jimply, blowzy, jockey, frowzy, jiminy, jangly, jingly, cozily, frouzy, frenzy, manicly, floozy, godverdomme, jalopy, veejay, litzy, peppery, jinny, skivvy, beastie, qwerty, chips with paprika, arty, hazily, japery, chubby, jetway, chuffy, whacky, alkoxy, miljaar, packly and kinky. I have actually no idea what all these bloody words exactly mean, I
just picked them because their nutty sound matches last night’s liberating spirit. I am
sure, this diabolic three-headed monster doesn’t give a flying fuck either of how people perceive them as artists. That is what makes their exuberant sonic exorcism so damn fascinating. Don’t try to analyze them, don’t try to put them in a box, don’t try to even understand them. Just e-x-p-e-r-i-e-n-c-e them…

Some yesterday’s visuals

Heeeeeellllll yeahhhhhh

Play that funky music, white boys

Neanderthal man on a rip-roaring mission
