SEVEN IN THE MIX! 7 Crackers For Week 40…

A brand new SEVEN IN THE MIX for a brand new week!
Seven compelling strokes I played on repeat these past days
Seven stimulating tracks to feed body & soul all week long
Turn up the volume! Music is the dope! Here’s the stuff!

1/ ‘Radio Man ’56 by HEARTY HAR (Los Angeles, CA, US)
Sixties drenched garage pop spiced with a nowadays razzle dazzle à la MGMT and vitalized with some luscious harmonies. Flamboyant top cuts like this one are just ageless. Bingo!

2/ ‘Forever Trouble’ by VIRGIN SUICIDE (Copenhagen, Denmark)
This is what great youthful pop electricity is all about. Mixed emotions, melodic passion and sticky afflatus. Stellar title track from new 2nd album. More on Nordic Music Society

3/ ‘Baby Brother’ by MATTIEL (Atlanta, GA, US)
This gripping country born voice debuts with a tremendous Phil Spector like symphony. Swinging, catchy and playful. Richly orchestrated and colored with sparkling harmonies reminding me of last century’s most thrilling decade. Mattiel will release her debut album very shortly. All info here on Burger Records

4/ ‘Forgive Forget by PARLOUR (London, UK)
Amplified dream pop shoegaze with a haunting jingle jangle drive. An electrical trip
with singer Angela Won-Yin Mak‘s vulnerable voice adding mystery to this thrilling guitar jam that heads towards a steamy and mind-blowing finale. Wow! Spectacular stroke!…

5/ ‘Monster’ by NOLITA VIEW (London, UK)
Best effort, so far, from this spirited and dashing indie quartet. ‘Monster‘ is a stirring guitar pop gem that activates your ears instantly. I’m quite sure you’ll have this one on repeat.

6/’Secret Place’ by THE ZEPHYR BONES (Barcelona, Spain)
Enough sunny guitar licks to forget that summer is actually over. This band’s lively energy reminds me of ‘The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart‘ pop melancholia. ‘Secret Place‘ is the title track from their debut LP to be released in November via Spanish label La Castanya

7/ ‘Flake’ by EGOPUSHER (Berlin, Zurich)
This electro duo produces the right soundtrack to help you forget all your daily worries
for some relaxing moments. This cinematic and atmospheric ambient wave feels so much better than any therapy. Their debut album ‘Blood Red‘ will be out 13th October…
