24/7 Psych Junks – KING GIZZARD & THE LIZARD WIZARD With New Single ‘HONEY’

New sonic impulses…

16 July 2020

Can somebody help me? I lost track of how many albums this Australian mind-expanding-rock squad has produced since they hit the scene 10 years ago. These 24/7 psych junks make more records than Lady Gaga changes dresses. And here’s another new piece called HONEY. Well, not that new as frontman Stu Mackenzie clarifies: “I wrote this song a couple of years ago. It’s nice to have it out in the world.”

Compared to their previous escapades Honey is pretty smooth, poppy and accessible. You can easily whistle along….

20 Years Ago Today MOBY Released His Breakthrough Bestseller ‘PLAY’…

17 May 2019

Electro popsmith MOBY released his fifth album PLAY today 20 years ago, on 17 May 1999. He recorded it in his home studio in Manhattan, New York. It turned into a global triumph, artistically and commercially. It topped the UK albums chart for 7 weeks and reached the No 1 spot in six other countries while it peaked at a rather low #38 in the
US but sold steadily there for two years. I wasn’t a devoted Moby fan at all but this LP
was near perfect, with a series of fabulous synth pop & soul songs millions, young and
old, could relate to. Here are Turn Up The Volume‘s favorite highlights…

– HONEY –

– NATURAL BLUES –

– WHY DOES MY HEART FEEL SO BAND? –

– FIND MY BABY –
