Turbulent Rock & Blues Flurries With Brand New 4-Track EP ‘WORD OF MOUTH’ By GARDENBACK

22 February 2021

Band: GARDENBACK
Who: Turbulent trio band from Oldham, North of Manchester.

EP: WORD OF MOUTH
Four lusty rippers, here they come, one by one…

1. WORD OF MOUTH
The title track is a firework cracker of a jam. Like if the Jon Spencer Blues Band
teamed up with Detroit‘s legendary noise devils MC5 for a smoking hot session.

2. DO NO EVIL
Also a decibel-challenging blues-rock jackhammer pushed by steamed-up energy and fired-up passion. Raw bass, insane drum hits, riff-roaring guitar frenzy and hellish vocals.


.
3. CYNICAL GUY
A fat slo-mo groove looking for trouble along its nasty route. Moving like a cynical serpent on a vicious mission while a psycho-tic guitar sounds like if it wants to strangle somebody.

.
4. GO NATIVE
Deranged, funky Talking Heads vibes and early Public Image echoes with Jah Wobble on bass, Keith Levine on guitar and Rotten-esque vocals. Get my drift? Yes, this is my favorite.

A brand new SEVEN IN THE MIX for a brand new week!
Seven stirring strokes I played on repeat these past days
Seven towering tracks to feed body & soul all week long
Turn up the volume! Music is the dope! Here’s the stuff!

.
1/ ‘Lost Highway’ by LUSTS (UK)
This brotherly band goes on a romantic trip into the unknown on their new single
named after the David Lynch movie. Energized with sensual, alternating female/male
vocals, ‘Lost Highway‘ feels like a sonic hallucination. Both fascinating and attractive.

Highly spirited and amplified glam pop that will activate all of your senses. Elevating and lively. From the band’s excellent new, swirling self-titled album – available on Bandcamp.

This new, delirious single by outspoken garage trio ‘Gardenback‘ electrifies from start
to finish. The reverberating guitar parts sound like they were recorded back in the psychedelic sixties and inject this commotive crackerjack non-stop with flaming fuel.

4/ ‘Weather’
by MAYPINE (Brighton, UK)
Emotionally charged indie rock roller coaster build around layers of invigorating guitars, frontman Jase‘s impassionate voice and a quiet/loud/quiet structure. Flamboyant eruption from the band’s new, excellent 4-track EP ‘Bend/Break‘. Stream it in full here on Spotify.
