Amplified Slacker Rock With German/Canadian Trio PULSE PARK And Debut Album ‘PHONIC MUSIC’

19 April 2022


Who: Canadian trio that sttarted as an idea. Now they’re Justin Trudeau’s favourite
rock band. The three band members first met some time ago on an Arctic expedition
in Qikiqtaaluk, Nunavut/Canada, and started learning their instruments during the long polar nights. These were ukuleles that they traded dry fruits for with the Inuit. After the successful introduction of a breeding program for bowhead whales, the band decided to go back to Germany. But unfortunately, before this could happen, huskies escaped with their belongings, so the guys had to get by playing street music in Canada’s pedestrian zones, singing about the Great White North. Songs all about the cold, the dark, cod-liver
oil and not forgetting the white Arctic hares.”

Debut album: PHONAC MUSIC

Turn Up Th Volume: Phonac Music sounds like a lost Dinosaur Jr album with amplified slacker rockers, both melancholic (Apollian Heart / Realtime and beautiful closer A Constant) and flamboyant (Antibody / Sine Wave / Factory Fire) but always melodic and invigorating with a multi-layered flood of shoegazy guitar riffage. A warm and notable debut for the arctic explorers.

Five new firecrackers to bang-up your favorite 48 hours…

‘Automation’ by KING GIZZARD & THE LIZARD WIZARD (Melbourne, Aus)
The non-stop productive Australian psych addicts continue their prog-rock marathon.
The track’s clip stimulates fans to make their own remixes. Oh, did I say that the band
has a live album coming up?

‘Hoping For The Hoping’ by MODERN GUILT (London, UK)
Formed only last year these fervent blues rockers start a fire with their top debut single demo-ed in their own studio. Expect pumping drones, scorching guitars you can imitate
in front of your mirror, vehement vocals and an explosive chorus. Big blow! Big stroke!

‘Aspairt’ by PULSE PARK (Quebec, Canada)
Post-punk ardency driven by a repetitive, trance-like guitar riff and a relentless drum beat. Arresting all the way. No wonder that this eager team has been compared to noise legends such as Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth and Built to Spill. Check their 3-track EP right here.

‘Break Us’ by FUTURE RADIO
This blues force – a combination of words, music and visuals – fronted by singer/songwriter and highly emotional guitarist Jannie Lategan produces electricity that does your head in barely three minutes with a ripper “that everyone can relate to. We all have those things that we need to let go of, but letting go isn’t always that easy” says Lategan. Here’s why…

‘Mirror’ by FUZZ (USA)
If you put TY Segall on drums, the MeatbodiesChad Ubovich on bass, and multi-instrumentalist Charles Moothart on guitar together you get a full steam ahead
cannonball like this.

See/hear you next week, music junkies
