TURN UP THE VOLUME’S Knockout OCTOBER Team – Eleven Killer Tracks…

Eleven killer tracks on repeat this past month…

Quote - kopie (2)

Eleven killer tracks we played on repeat in October!
An eclectic mix of poppy vibrations and steamy grooves
energizing all of our senses and our limbs this past month!
Here’s Turn Up The Volume‘s Knockout October Team!

.
1. ‘Faith & Science’ by MODERATE REBELS (London, UK)
With Moderate Rebels it’s all about intoxicating mantra-like psych grooves. Like a mind-expanding mix of Velvet Underground, The Dandy Warhols and Spacemen 3. Far-out stuff!

MODERATE REBELS: Twitter

2. I Don’t Care Anymore by BIG TIME KILL (Boston, US)
This raging electro-duo produces inflammable firework to go berserk to on the dance floor. This cutting cracker comes from debut LP ‘Shock And Awe‘. Read all about it here.

3. ‘Bar Stool Warriors’ by GARETH SAGER & THE HUNGRY GHOSTS (Scotland)
This is what happened when longtime post-punk chameleon Gareth Sager invited the ghosts of Captain Beefheart & Frank Zappa for a cup of tea and a rad jam. Full result here.

4. ‘Turn The Knife’ by PALM GHOSTS (Nashville, US)
A feverish mixed emotions pop pearl build around a stellar melody with layers of sparkling guitars and elevated by the enrapturing effect of duet vocals. Both dazzling and haunting.

5. ‘Money Money’ by RICHARD ASHCROFT (England)
Closing track of the legend’s brand new album. Hottest, hookiest and rockiest cut of all.

6. ‘The Witness’ by HERSELF (Italy)
Most upbeat, most funky and most vibey stroke on new LP by singer/songwriter Gioele Valenti aka Herself. Find out more about the whole album ‘Rigel Playground‘ right here.

7. ‘Pastel Blues’ by THE ATTICS (Melbourne, Australia)
You’ll feel groovy, you’ll look groovy and your swaying hips will make other people go groovy when you’re walking the streets with this earworm on your headphones. Ace!

THE ATTICS: Facebook

8. ‘Beacon’ by THE MIGHTY ORCHID KING (St Albans, UK)
Expect kooky guitars, a pulsating rhythmic tandem, an overall buzzing resonance, echoing vocals and karma-like 60s harmonies. Yesterday is the new today! Time to chill out! Yeah!

THE MIGHTY ORCHID KING: Facebook

9. ‘Secret’ by VAUREEN (Brooklyn, NY, US)
As much decibels as My Bloody Valentine, as dark as Killing Joke and with Lydia Lunch‘s enigmatic spirit on vocals. Outcome? Like a pitch-black Neil Young hurricane. Puzzling!

10. ‘Victoria Park’ by RED TELEPHONE (Cardiff, Wales)
Melancholic melody, starry-eyed vocals and an overall gratifying warmth that makes you long for happy-go-lucky childhood days. Reminds me of romantic popsters Scritti Politti.

RED TELEPHONE: Facebook

11. ‘Dream Apartment’ by OH FOR (Finland)
This humdinger’s jazzy bass warmth, its twinkling orchestration and its intimate vocals will make your thoughts drift away to the room in your mind where you can freely fantasize.

OH FOR: Facebook

GARETH SAGER & THE HUNGRY GHOSTS – New Explosive Party Album ‘JUICY RIVERS’ Out Now…

13 October 2018

Edinburgh born artist GARETH SAGER‘s CV is quite impressive: multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, classical music composer, a founding member of funky post-punk
junks The Pop Group, jazzy avant-garde combo Rip Rig + Panic, Bristol rockers Head
and countless collaborations here, there and everywhere. After releasing his gracious classical piano LP 88 Tuned Dreams last year Sager is back with a totally different beast. Assisted by his gang THE HUNGRY GHOSTS he just dropped new album JUICY RIVERS.

It’s party time for all the outcasts, all the misfits and all the bohemians out there. Imagine the genial Mothers Of Invention fronted by the eccentric Captain Beafheart instead of the equally eccentric icon Frank Zappa. That’s my overall exciting feeling after a couple of ‘Juicy Rivers‘ spins. You get all the sonic pandemonium your greedy ears and your fucked up mind need. From elevating glam weirdness (Disco Sofa) to bluesy funkness (Pete Le Beat), from demonic rock (Bar Stool Warrior Chant) to deranged post-punk grimness (Pitbull Watusi) and lots of far-out stuff in between. Throw your straitjacket through the window and shake your lazy hips on repeat right now, right here…


Available here and here


The hungriest ghost..

GARETH SAGER & THE HUNGRY GHOSTS Eager To Start A Glammy Party With New Single ‘DISCO SOFA’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

17 August 2018

Edinburgh born artist GARETH SAGER‘s CV is quite impressive: multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, classical music composer, a founding member of funky post-punk
junks The Pop Group, jazzy avant-garde combo Rip Rig + Panic and Bristol rockers Head. After releasing his gracious classical piano LP 88 Tuned Dreams last year Sager is already back with a new project and this time it seems like he wants to have some freakish fun. With his accomplices, named THE HUNGRY GHOSTS he just launched pumping single DISCO SOFA. A glamorous crackerjack sounding as if legendary misfits Frank Zappa
and Captain Beefheart felt bored, down there in Abaddon, and got their doped heads together to start a frantic far-out party in hell. The stomping impact of ‘Disco Sofa‘ will affect all of your senses and make you move in mysterious ways. Resistance is futile.
Time to get our lazy butts out of the couch and go berserk. Right here, right now…
