TURN UP THE VOLUME’S Selection Of Five New Rad MUST-HEAR Albums…

New longplayers that will have an impact on your ears and your speakers

1. ‘Darkness Rains’ by DEATH VALLEY GIRLS (Los Angeles, CA, US)
Halloween is just around the corner. Perfect timing for this voodoo-ish garage gang to launch their new tremendous LP. From glowing glam slams to freakish doom havoc with demonic guitars and Bonnie Bloomgarden‘s cutting primal screams. Freakish experience!

2. ‘Icon’ by THE VENUS FLY TRAP (Northampton, UK)
If Stephen King and David Lynch formed a band they would sound as creepily cool as this cult duo who formed in 1986. Now they return with some horror-ific electro punk fuel to inflame the coming Apocalypse! Don’t miss the fun, all you bloodthirsty pariahs out there.

4. s/t by RUDE DUDE AND THE CREEK FREAKS (Savannah, GA, US)
Expect sixties injected psychedelic jams, transcendent escapades, wah wah electricity, organ sultriness à la The Animals, reverberating guitar turbulence and echoing vocals
with a biting flair. Time to leave reality temporarily! Time now to go eight miles high!

5. ‘New Bad News’ by THE FABRICATORS (South London, UK)
“We’re a garage band / We come from garageland” spitted The Clash iconic frontman Joe Strummer once. This is what The Fabricators‘s spirit is all about. Raw, energetic, confident and burning. Frank DIY post punk emotions from the street. Direct and honest and loud!
