A brand new SEVEN IN THE MIX for a brand new week!
Seven striking strokes I played on repeat these past days
Seven towering tracks to feed body & soul all week long
Turn up the volume! Music is the dope! Here’s the stuff!
1/ ‘Fake It’ by CHASE CITY (Hobart, Tasmania, AUS)
Here’s a terrific power slam with a wicked dance twist while agitated vocals poke the
pace mercilessly. A dazzling sledgehammer by a dashing turbine! They are for REAL!

2/ ‘Liar’ by PINK ROOM (Ghent, Belgium)
This Belgian’s three-headed punk trash trio will push your speakers to the fucking limit with a d-y-n-a-m-i-t-e outburst from fresh, n-a-s-t-y 4-track EP ‘Relationshit‘ – listen here.

3/ ‘Still Remember’ by ALCABEAN (Copenhagen, Denmark)
Fully guitars charged score driven by a staggering and relentless drum/bass tandem while harmonious vocals glide all over it. A multi-layered effort performed with lots of bravado.
4/ ‘Is This Man Bothering You?’ by THE FERNWEH (Liverpool, UK)
A heavenly psychedelic pop rainbow floating eight miles high. A sweet, colorful pearl, with spot-on orchestration transferring you to the best moments of 60s sonic splendour. Bingo!

5/ ‘Hetty Merton’ by SKY BETWEEN LEAVES (London, UK)
Psychedelic galvanism taking you way up there in the blissful sky. Touching, moony and remembering me of the best moments of Dinosaur JR. Yes, that entrancing good! Top!

6/ ‘I Get No Rest’ by INDIAN QUEENS (London, UK)
Captivating reflection of big city alienation. ‘London at night, nowhere to hide’. Restless loneliness translated into a gripping sonic contemplation. Only questions, no answers.

7/ ‘Hot Tears’ by PINKY PINKY (Los Angeles, California, US)
Young, vibrant L.A. trio sounds here like an electrical reincarnation of 60s legends
The Ronettes with this amplified tearjerker, this teenage love-sick reflection in slo-mo!
