A brand new SEVEN IN THE MIX for a brand new week!
Seven solid strokes I played on repeat these past days
Seven top tracks to feed body and soul all week long
Turn up the volume! Music is the dope! Here’s the stuff!
1/ ‘Metaphors & Maps’ by YOUNGEST OF ELDERS (San Francisco, Bay Area, US)
Here’s a vibrant crackerjack that hits you from the very start. Ardent, vivacious and catchy as bloody hell. Flamboyant guitars, powerful drums and impassioned vocals. Top score!

2/ ‘Can’t Tell You Anything’ by LAVA DOLLS (Hamilton, Ontario, Canada)
My fav track from this hefty grunge trio’s new EP. A highly clamorous killer cut with a knockout chorus. Terrific firework. Here’s the new EP ‘Little Secrets’ in full on Spotify.
3/ ‘That’s’ by IN HOODIES (Bursa, Turkey)
Murat Kılıkçıer aka In Hoodies generates dazzling electricity with this red-hot steamroller.
A robust blast from his new 4-track EP ‘Circling The Cage’. Check it here on Bandcamp.
4/ ‘Let Down’ by SHYBITS (UK/US)
A jingle jangle garage stroke that will impact your head’s movements with rattling guitars, solid drums and agitated vocals. From this duo’s new EP ‘Idiot Like You‘, here on iTunes.
5/ ‘The Devil And Me’ by SLUTTY HEARTS (Portland, US)
This blustery mid-tempo blues rock hammer kicks gloriously. Ardent vocals, fervent
guitars and a sexy organ in the back. A thunderous bravado all the way. Hot stuff!
6/ ‘Blue And Bleu’ by THE RAFT (Liverpool, UK)
The Raft is singer/songwriter Phil Wilson‘s musical project. The opener of his new EP
is a poppy rainbow, colored with sunlit Teenage Fanclub like harmonies. Delightfully orchestrated with a melancholic touch. Check new 4-track EP ‘Orion’ on Bandcamp

7/ ‘Butterflies’ by STONY SUGARSKULL (Berlin, Germany)
Monika Demmle aka Stony Sugarskull has that mysterious, vocal timbre of ex-Mazzy Star singer Hope Sandoval. Gloomy and downhearted, yet weirdly attractive and sensual.
See/hear you next week, music junkies…
