Turn Up The Volume’s 20 KNOCKOUT TRACKS Of The Month – FEBRUARY 2022

A stream of rattling rippers, jagged jams, and romantic reveries

All 20 together on Spotify

.
Knockout by knockout…

1. ‘Demolition Row’ by METZ (Canada)

The hard-hitting Canadian bolide is on a supersonic roll here, rockin’
their tails off. Full blast ahead, no brakes, no looking back. Holy smoke!

The track comes as a vinyl 7″ split with British
band Adulkt Life. Out 4 March, buy here.

Holy guacamole…


.

2. ‘I Am Kate Moss’ by DITZ (Brighton, UK)

“The best band in the world” according to Joe Talbot (frontman of Idles).

I Am Kate Moss will be on this ace indie mavericks’ upcoming
debut LP The Great Regression, out at the end of this week.

Order info here.

If your ears are looking for some badass fireworks you really should
play Kate Moss out loud. She’ll turn the heat up the way you like it.

C’mon, Kate…

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

3. ‘Room 165’ by CROWS (London, UK)

James Cox (frontman): ““I used to be quite obsessed with true crime, and this song was
kind of born out of researching H.H Holmes and the World Trades Hotel in the 1860’s where
he would murder people staying at his hotel informally called ‘The Murder Castle’. I also got quite obsessed with a faith healer from the early 1900’s called Reverend Major Jealous Divine and reading transcripts of his old sermons, so this is basically just a weird amalgamation of mad shit I read about.”

Post-punk at its psych-o-tic best…

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

4. ‘Digging’ by NOTHINGHEADS (London, UK)

A wham-bloody-bam drum intro, scorching guitars, filthy grooves, angry vocals,
all in just 50 seconds. Sounds like Nick Cave and his freakish gang The Birthday Party
are back with a filthy blues-injected blast. If you like creepy doom and gloom hullabaloo from a smelly basement you’ll love this to death.

Release the bats…

.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________

5. ‘Cream’ by BOTCHED TOE (UK)

A razorblade uppercut as intimidating as a bulldozer and
cutting as a Swiss knife. No rest for the wicked. One of the
clamorous highlights of these hardcore junks’ debut album
A False Glimmer Of Hope.

Go bonkers, folks…


.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________

6. ‘Junk Man’ by JON SPENCER & THE HITMAKERS (US)

Garage blues-rock junk Jon Spencer is back in town.
This time with his HITmakers. This razzle-dazzle cracker
is pushed by a bouncy synth touch and, schizophrenic
guitars and, of course, Spencer‘s freaky vocals.

Turn it up…

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

7. ‘Staring Into The Sun’ by 50 FOOT WAVE (USA)

The wonderful Kristin Hersh has an impressive résume.
10 albums with Throwing Muses, 10 solo albums and one
full LP and several EPs with 50 Foot Wave (trio with
Throwing Muses‘ bassist Bernard Georges).

And Hersh doesn’t think about retiring yet, she never will.
A new 7-track 50 Foot Wave album, entitled Black Pearl
comes our way on 15 April. Order info here.

Taster Staring Into The Sun is, a boisterous and metallic
slo-mo groove with a hammering beat, pumped-up guitars,
and Hersh’s manic vocals augmenting the shadowy tone of
this belter.

So what’s next for 50 Foot Wave? Playing at
metalfest Aftershock in Sacramento in October?

8. ‘Clowns For President’ by BAD SKIN (Montreal, CA)

Think legendary gritty grrrls Bikini Kill having a ball with
Pussy Riot while kicking Russian president Putin up the ass.
These 4 steamy sisters in punchy punk crime buzz and fuzz
like a hot rod on the run.

Bad Skin storm full steam ahead with front Amazon Dope sneering
like a raging riot grrrl. Yep, Dope is dope. And this stunning stonker
is dope too!

To hell with Putin…

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

9. ‘Alone Again’ by AVA VOX (Dublin, Ireland)

Sounds like Patti Smith‘s Because The Night ends in a painful break-up
for the lovers. Ava Vox‘s heartache vocality and hurt timbre emphasise
the confused state of mind of the abused one and the melodramatic
sonic boom of this emotional eruption expresses sorrow, distress,
and angst. Another gripping Vox piece.

Affecting performance…


.

10. ‘This Cost Of Life’ by TIDAL WAVE (Toronto, CA)

Oh my, oh my. This sky-reaching gem left me out of breath after just one spin.

A tower of a song with an imposing impact. A masterstroke that explodes after the foreplay-intro and moves up and down like a roller coaster. Stellar tune, stellar sound, stellar guitars, stellar emotions, and a stellar chorus. Anthemically orchestrated with goosebumps arrangments. I’m quite sure their awesome fellowmen Arcade Fire would
like this grand exploit.

Here‘s why…

.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________

11. ‘Fear Of The Dawn’ by JACK WHITE (Detroit, US)

The former white stripe plans the release of two
albums this year. Fear Of Of The Dawn, out 8 April
and Entering Heaven Alive, out 22 July.

Here comes the title track of the first LP.
Expect 120 seconds of flaming guitar
hysteria with White going totally blue…

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

12. ‘Back To The Radio’ by PORRIDGE RADIO (Brighton, UK)

The lead-single of new, upcoming full-length album
Waterslide, Diving Board, Ladder To The Sky out
in May.

This is one of those songs that hypnotise from the get-go
to the eager finale. A feverish chant, one long chorus with
Marglin‘s delirious voice causing goosebumps.

Stupendous stroke…

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

13. ‘Alone’ by STALKER (Sweden)

This is classic heavy metal. Huge sound, huge vocals, huge tune
with a huge chorus. If you’re a metal addict you will not mind if this
Swedish hit team stalks you. After an ominous violin intro, all burners
are on and frontman Michael Storck’s overwhelming pipes take over.

Self-titled debut longplayer comes on
11th February 2022 via WormHoleDeath.

Holy shit!

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

14. ‘Colorful White Lies’ by ELECTRIC HIGH (Bergen, Norway)

After a dancey handclap intro, it’s all burners on with
a headbanging impact. Heavy boogie drones to play air
guitar to, in front of the mirror.

Echoes of muscular American motherrockers – like Van Halen,
Sammy Hagar
and Aerosmith – are all over the heated place.

Add firm Lynryd Skynyrd harmonies and you know you’ll
have this blaring beast on your speakers for quite some time.

Press the start button here…


.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________

15. ‘Hostile Music’ by SALEM WOLVES (Boston, MA)

This boiling-hot-cooking stroke hit me and my ears from
the moment the first chord blasted out of my shaking stereo.

Ardent anxiety and edgy excitability dominate this fanatical
outburst. And when the hair-rising chorus erupts you’ll
go mental just as these wolves do.

Right here, right now…

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

16. ‘Love Burns’ by ODAWIN (Italy)

A twist and turn prog-pop-rock composition bringing legends
Genesis (early years with Peter Gabriel) and YES (with voice Jon Anderson)
to mind. My favorite cut from Odawin‘s triumphant debut EP ‘Untitled.

.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________

17. ‘Golden Apple’ by HVIRESS (Brighton, UK)

Sensual, puzzling, tempting, synth-matic,
imaginative, seductive, esoteric, and relaxing.

HVIRESS are here to stay.

The ladies have once again teamed up with Scott Chalmers
to create an unsettling music video that leaves the viewer
pondering what they’ve just seen, a perfect partner to
the song’s opening lines…

“What is it that you see? It almost seems unreal
What is responsible for all the things you feel”

______________________________________________________________________________________________

18. ‘Impossible’ by RÖYSKOPP and ALISON GOLDFRAPP (Norway / UK)

Norway’s synth heroes teamed up with the gorgeous
Alison Goldfrapp for this trippy and sultry dance thrill.

Shake your booty, ladies and gents…

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

19. ‘Shallow Graves’ by THE MINIMUM WAGE (Ontario, CA)

This riff-rowdy ripper flames with fervid fervency and resonates
as if Bob Mould was invited to play guitar. Ace tune, towering
sound, impassioned vocals, and a sickly sticky chorus.

Just what you need to activate your serotonin production.
Maximum result for a minimum wage.

Be yourself, stay yourself…

.
______________________________________________________________________________________________

20. ‘Hello Dreamer Baby’ by THE ROYAL FOUNDRY (Canada)

This is what ecstatic pop grandeur is all about. Music that elevates
your state of mind to a titillating level. This new majestic single
generates a spellbinding buzz we all can use in these difficult
pandemic times.

When the multi-layered vocals/harmonies kick in, a gospel-like choir delight
creates an atmosphere of utter joy comparable with the euphoric drive of
The Polyphonic Spree. Vitalizing vibe, refreshing rapture.

Enjoy here…

See/hear you next month, music junkies

THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN – 7 New Firecrackers From The Past Week

7 new firecrackers from the past 7 days

1. Forgotten by KORN (Bakersfield, CA)

This new single is vintage Korn. Uncomplicated nu-metal for everybody
who wants their ears to go bonkers. From their forthcoming, 14th LP
Requiem, out early next month.

Arggghhh…

________________________________________________________________________________________________

2. Won’t Stand Down by MUSE (UK)

This comeback haymaker is” “about standing your ground against bullies, whether that
be on the playground, at work or anywhere.”
I was a fan of early Muse exploits (their 2004 masterwork Absolution still gives me goosebumps). Their stardom made them go a bit too artificial and predictable for my liking. But this new one roars hard with a metallic sound as big as St Paul’s Cathedral in London. Cast-iron!

Turn up the heat…

________________________________________________________________________________________________

3. UZI by BLURT (Gloucestershire, UK)

The late 70s cult post-punks (Factory Records) are back and their free-jazz-punk
firework is still intact. Led by poet/musician Ted Milton the mavericks groove as hell.
Message to all young bands out there: listen and take notes.

Let’s roll…

________________________________________________________________________________________________

4. Wrong Answers Only by THE STREETS and MASTER PEACE (UK)

The Streets‘ musical brain Mike Skinner and rapper Master Peace
joined forces for this easy-going hip-pop jingle.

.
________________________________________________________________________________________________

5. Be The Hook by PAVEMENT (Stockton, CA)

Not really a new track. It’s a previously unrealized song from their Twilight Terror
album sessions (their final LP – 1999). It will be part of a deluxe reissue edition titled Terror Twilight: Farewell Horizontal’, out next April. More info here.

Get hooked here…

________________________________________________________________________________________________

6. Brother The Cloud by EDDIE VEDDER (Seattle)

Eddie Vedder has his third solo album Earthling. I could swear
that this explosive single comes from a lost Pearl Jam longplayer.

Here’s why…

7. Love Is Selfish by JACK WHITE (Detroit)

Busy bee Jack White (real name: John Anthony Gillis )
gives birth to his 5th solo LP Fear Of Down in April.

Hear his acoustic lullaby track…
