Turn Up The Volume’s 5 Best EXTENDED PLAYS Of 2020

COMMON SENSE by VIAGRA BOYS

This EP is the emotive, bluesy and saxy harbinger – with Lick The Bag as one of the best rollicking 2020 tracks – for the Swedish punks’ new album Welfare Jazz, out 8th January.

“I think our songs are mostly written about what’s going on in our lives. Not every band needs
to take themselves so seriously. I’m not very good at political commentary, so I’m not gonna go write a political song. There’s enough of that, in a way. You know, ‘Nazi punks fuck off’”
says sharp-tongued singer/songwriter/tattooist Sebastian Murphy.

SPELLS by ATTAWALPA

Singer/songwriter Attawalpa is a South-American, London-based artist who’s “music
is the sum of his influences, a colourful and culturally rich Schmorgers board of sounds, textures, emotions, and grooves from eras across a multitude of genres, sitting comfortably
in between rock, alternative and pop spaces. His Peruvian heritage plays a part too.”

These four gracious pearls, with multi-layered orchestrations, shows an imaginative and
impassioned artist with a transcendent vox and the masterly gift to write absorbing songs with a sticking pop melodiousness.

BLUE STRAGGLERS by BLUE STRAGGLERS (Horsham, UK)

This rowdy Sussex turbo trio produces a fired-up blues-rock turbulence that electrifies
your body, makes smoke coming out of your ears and open up your sweat pores. Feel
free to bang your head against your living room walls, kick that coronavirus in the balls and let your locked up 2020 energy go its way with volcanic force. Yeeeeeeeeessss!


.
PASTILLE EP by HMS MORRIS (Cardiff, Wales)

A collection of the 5 songs representing 2020 for this Welsh art-pop-folk duo.
“The taste of our particular flu pastille.”
says the pair.

Expect dream-pop in colors and mixed-emotions poetry in motion, embedded
in multi-dimensional arrangements and free-spirited patterns Kate Bush and
Florence Welch would definitely approve. Yes, that twinkling and sparkling good.

Dream Pop Act REMINGTON SUPER 60 Releases ‘NEW EP’ – Romanticism Wrapped In Six Lyrical Musings…

New sonic impulses

29 January 2020

REMINGTON SUPER 60 is a dream pop act hailing from Fredrikstad in Norway, founded by the group’s songwriter and bedroom producer Christoer Schou in 1998 with a few lineup changes along the way. Over the years several albums and EPS were released on various indie labels around the world. The sound has gone back and forward but was/is always been inspired by Shou’s musical heroes such as Burt Bacharach, Brian Wilson, Stereolab,
The Velvet Underground, High Llamas, Cornelius, Yo La Tengo
& Eggstone.

If you want to get away from the daily rush and pressure, if you want to relax for a while and drift away from reality than NEW EP is the ideal partner. It’s romanticism, with its ups and downs, wrapped in six lyrical musings (including one charming instrumental) with the near whispering and sensual voice of vocalist Elisabeth Thorsen having a soothing effect on your mood and your spirit. The overall musical tone of the EP is tranquilizing, tender, dreamy and feels like a sort of zen experience. Soft, idyllic guitar melancholy, warm and smooth synths, a delightful and elegant resonance and subtle, bewitching arrangements.

Sit down, dim the lights, close your eyes and drift away, it’s cheaper than therapy…
