London’s Noiseniks PROPERTY Share New Cutting Rollercoaster ‘JUMPING OFF’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

18 January 2019

After raging debut single Adult Cereals London’s edgy noise rockers return with new robust slam JUMPING OFF. According to lead singer, Morgan Hewitt it’s a song about ‘observing the loneliness of city living, the cut-and-thrust of terse cosmopolitan relationships, and the ebb and flow of flux that bamboozles us all on a daily basis; those familiar scenarios set against a backdrop of ordinariness, punctuated by the immediacy of feeling ‘top of the world’ one second, to slumping to an all-new nadir the next.’

Jumping Off‘ is a triptych rollercoaster. After a relatively quit drums/guitar/vocal intro the temperature and the tension grows vehemently and fiercely. It seems like something is rotten in the state of mind of London. Accumulated feelings of dissatisfaction come to the surface and are about to explode when part tree of this red-hot-blooded outburst goes bonkers close to the 3 min. mark. Suddenly the pace is doubled and the sonic frustration rushes unstoppably to a climax. Wow! Top blast! Catch the cutting annoyance right here…

Norwegian Duo MISTY COAST Creates Carefree Dreamworld On New Single ‘BACKSEAT WARRIORS’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

16 January 2019

Artist: MISTY COAST

Who: Dream pop duo Linn Frøkedal and Richard Myklebust from Bergen, Norway

Track: BACKSEAT WARRIORS – vocalist Linn Frøkedal says “the song is inspired by her childhood in the tiny village Etne, located on the west coast of Norway. When I grew up there was nothing to do there, so if you didn’t happen to love football, horses or music, then you
most likely spent the days styling your car or driving up and down the streets of Etne, collecting Wunderbaum – or Little Trees – in your rear-view mirror.”
The track is from their sophomore album ‘Melodaze‘ out 25 January. A record heavily inspired by the pair’s two-month stay in Berlin.

Score:Backseat Warriors‘ is an imaginative fusion of soothing electronics, longing vocals/harmonies and starry-eyed melodiousness that transfer your moony thoughts
to carefree places and memorable moments where reality is not invited. Romantic colored meditations like this, drenched in a relaxing bath of sonic warmth, trigger your phantasy and cause a comforting state of mind. Catch the melancholic rainbow here…

Aussie Singer-Songwriter LAURA IMBRUGLIA Launches New Red-Hot Banger ‘THE CREEPS’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

14 January 2019

It’s been more than five years since Australian musical chameleon LAURA IMBRUGLIA released her third album What A Treat. But she’s totally ready for her come back with new longplayer SCARED OF YOU. After revealing previous new songs Tricks and Diptich she launched another new cut today. THE CREEPS is a red-hot rage injected banger filled with loud and clear mixed emotions with Imbruglia‘s voice spitting with disgust, contempt and apprehension while the impetuous and razor-sharp guitar riffs sound at times as if they want to kick someone’s head in. The boisterous knockout ends with a significant scream. What a hot-blooded performance this is. Bang bang bang!

“I think The Creeps is pretty relatable content. It’s just a simple song about being irritated that an ex-lover can still rattle you when you see them, no matter how many years have passed or how much water is under the bridge. The feeling I’m describing is closer to heebie jeebies than the creeps, but I didn’t want this song to sound like that Roy Orbison song “Ooby Dooby” so I settled on ‘the creeps’ as a close enough description.” – Laura Imbruglia

Gripping Singer-Songwriter VANESSA ANNE REDD Wonders ‘WHAT’S NEXT’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

9 January 2019

VANESSA ANNE REDD is a London-based, half-German singer-songwriter & producer. After recording with other artists and touring with John Foxx(early Ultravox) and Gary Numan she released her moving lo-fi debut solo LP Behind The Wall in 2016 and is
about to launch the follow-up, entitled Zumbo Waxes .

Ahead of it here’s one of the most exciting tracks off the new album. WHAT’S NEXT sounds at first as a sing-along campfire lullaby but turns, after a couple of spins, into
a very emotive and ardent chant electrified by crackling blues guitar licks and about midway, when the ongoing groove gets more dynamic a sultry trumpet kicks in and intensifies the repetitive ‘what’s next’ impact of the gripping performance tremendously. On top of it all comes Vanessa Anne Red‘s compelling vox. Both sensuous and puissant. Truly impressive. Capture the spirited vigor right here…

Swiss Trip Pop Artist AYU Scores With Soulful Single ‘ANOTHER MESS, I’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

6 January 2019

Artist: AYU

Who: “Being born in Bern (Switzerland), and living in Hamburg (Germany) AYU is a songstress
and producer delivering a mixture of contemporary pop, future-thinking electronics, catchy
RnB tunes and sweet indie. Her so-called Trip Pop is a deep push-pull dialogue in which heart-stoppingly honest lyrics meet rhythmic x dreamy vocals, and futuristic beats are combined with swirling guitar patterns. At the centre of her playful genre clash, the singer’s warm voice attracts everyone who listens to her right away.”

Pick: ANOTHER MESS, I – Ayu’s brand new second single

Score: Only 5 days in the New Year and here’s the very first 24 karat gold hit of 2019.
I’m not drunk and I’m not joking. ‘Another Mess, I‘ has all the right sonic ingredients. It’s soulfully trippy, emotionally atmospheric and charmingly poppy with a mid-tempo groove that reminds me of the introspective side of some of Massive Attack‘s dreamy soundscapes. This is a gorgeously arranged and tenderly composed mixed emotions musing with Ayu‘s characterful and heart-whole vox in the middle. I repeat: this is a hit, this is a winner.

British Psych Outfit DOROTHY VALLENS Calls It A Day With One More Chilling Album…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

British DIY psych outfit DOROTHY VALLENS, the vehicle of singer/songwriter Joe Rosam
calls it a day after releasing several sound-exploring albums since 2014. They produced some pretty amazing stuff, but I guess musicians know when it’s time to move. I’m not gonna write a sort of in memoriam, because I’m terrible at it, and also, I didn’t know DV that well. Just this one thing: their final effort, called IN THE OH SO DREARY EVER-LONG, containing some notable new tracks and a couple of older ones (including the extravagant 25-minute odyssey called The Existentialist’s Persian Rug Mantra), sounds like a fitting tribute to their own true soul. Good luck, guys!

Here’s the chilling farewell…
