Eleven killer tracks played on repeat in August!
A heated mix of flaming rippers and glowing grooves
energizing all of my senses and limbs this past month!
Here’s Turn Up The Volume‘s Knockout August Team!

.
1. ‘Bells & Circles’ by UNDERWORLD Feat. IGGY POP
British veteran techno junks return with a smoking groove AND with legendary maestro punk Iggy Pop babbling a lot of nonsense all over it. But it bloody swings! Full EP right here.

2. ‘Paradox’ by SEXTILE (Los Angeles, CA, US)
An inflammatory firecracker thundering like electronica pioneers Suicide on speed. Mind-stimulating, body-energizing and soul-stirring. From their upcoming EP ‘3‘ – out 14 Sept.

3. ‘Disaster’ (Is What We’re After) by DEATH VALLEY GIRLS (Los Angeles, CA, US)
A glorious glam slam thundering madly from the banging start to the wildly sax-noise injected finale with Bonnie Bloomgarden‘ voodoo vox adding fuel to the fanatic fire. Ace!

NEW ALBUM: Darkness Rains

4. ‘User Guide’ by IT IT ANITA (Luik, Belgium)
Demonic and loudmouthed molotov cocktail that feels like exploding any second. Nasty, riotous and tons of fierce guitars. Blustery eruption from new LP ‘Laurent‘. Check it here.

5. ‘Air Supply’ by ahem (Minneapolis, MN, US)
From the smashing start your adrenalin will pump faster, your body will make mysterious moves and your voice will scream along. From the band’s new EP Chutes And Ladders.

6. ‘I Want You Around’ by Oh800 (London, UK)
This corker resonates like a pungent fusion of LCD Soundsystem‘s repetitive beats and The Rapture‘s scintillating dance rhythms with vitriolic guitars adding a vicious edge. Top cut!

7. ‘Erase Me’ by KERCHIEF (Tennessee, US)
A robust hammer, a sinewy steamroller with a high dose of heartfelt power. The ardent combination of Hill‘s begging vox and the repetitive riffage is spot-on! Emo-wall-of-sound!

8. ‘I Love Today’ by MODERATE REBELS (London, UK)
This mantra-like sing-along groove activates your bloodstream, makes your feet tap and your head shake. Body/mind trance experience. New LP Shared Values out 30 November.

9/ ‘Hey!’ by SUMMER MAGIC (South City St. Louis, US)
Summer Magic aka Kevin Bachmann sounds like a 90s psychedelic Britpop version of The Beach Boys on his new single. Addictive jingle jangle riffs and luminous harmonies. Bingo!

10. ‘High Above‘ by SEASIDE HEIGTHS (Gothenburg, Sweden)
A wondrous synths injected composition with echoes from The National and Editors. Both magnetic and mysterious. From their excellent, new EP Made up Minds and Bad News.

SEASIDE HEIGHTS: Facebook

11. ‘The Somnambulist’ by ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN (Liverpool, UK)
Anthemic, bewitching and irresistibly infectious with a king-sized chorus. Best Bunnymen score in years. From the band’s upcoming album The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon.

MODERATE REBELS Move From Groove To Mantra And Back On New Track ‘I LOVE TODAY’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

24 August 2018

Last December London’s variable collective MODERATE REBELS released their lo-fi pop debut album The Sound Of Security. Intriguing record on which this self-proclaimed Anti-Music Collective created a grey, yet sticky soundtrack for our troubled reality. Early July they returned to the scene with new track Beyond Hidden Words. A hypnotizing stroke, feeling like a continuation of their experimental search into the sticky simplicity of repetitive psych grooves à la the early Velvet Undergound.

We were quite surprised when hearing the second cut from the new, upcoming longplayer. I LOVE TODAY comes close to a traditional song structure. It has some
verses, choruses and even a middle eight section. Although Moderate Rebels claim
they still don’t know if this song is optimistic or not” this new one has a mantra-like,
positive sing-along energy. I agree, it’s a sort of song, but it’s its magnetic groove
that activates your bloodstream, makes your feet tap and your head shake. From
groove to mantra and back with the same body/mind-moving effect. Perfect!

Hear and feel the heartbeat right here…
