Eleven Knockout Tracks on repeat this past month!
A tasty cocktail of rollicking rippers and first-rate cuts.
Here’s Turn Up The Volume‘s Knockout April Team!

1. ‘Blah Blah Blah’ by MEMES (Glasgow, Scotland)
The spirit of The Fall’s debut EP Bingo-Master’s Break-Out!. Ramshackle racket!…

2. ‘Covered In Filth’ by THE MEDICINE DOLLS (Capetown, South Africa)
Raw rollicking rockabilly riffs with waggish bubblegum ooh-la-la’s. Filthy score!

3. ‘Don’t’ by MILLIONAIRE (Belgium)
An ominous funky smack fueled by a mighty disco stomp. Hell yeah!…

4. ‘Candy’ by FALLING MAN (Belgium)
An enigmatic painkiller for spooky midnight hours. It will keep you sane. Maybe…

5. ‘Stay Where You Stand’ by THE RINGARDS (London, UK)
Jangly guitars, ace pace, poppy synths and a scream/sing/hum along chorus. Top!

6. ‘The Way In’ by THE DREAM SYNDICATE (Los Angeles, CA, US)
Electrifying psych piece from the band’s new upcoming album ‘These Times

7. ‘Hey’ Gyp (Dig The Slowness) by THE RACONTEURS (US)
Jack White & buddies back with gloriously messy Donovan cover…

8. ‘6.30‘ by SUPER PARADISE (London,UK)
When blitzkrieg guitars, echoing vocals and flashy synths meet. A bang-up roller coaster!

9. ‘Who’s Been Having You Over’ by PETER DOHERTY & THE PUTA MADRES (UK)
Snappy garage stomper with sharp-edged guitar licks and Doherty‘s characteristic vox…

10. ‘Prozac Spaceman’ by FAUX CO. (Chicago, US)
This delightful humdinger will dance in your head for some time after one spin…

11. ‘Parabole’ by TURQUOISE (Bruxelles, Belgique)
Sensuous French vocals, glimmering guitars and New Order‘s blue dynamics. Magnifique!…

London’s SUPER PARADISE Takes You On Roller Coaster With New Ripper ‘6.30’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

15 April 2019

Who: “Formed by Francesco Roma and Nicolò Spreafico in Milan, the band brought their self-styled dream garage sound to London, releasing their debut album in 2016. From here it’s become a relentless live project, playing numerous scuzzy headline and support shows across the city’s buzziest venues, honing their distorted and hook-laden tunes. Joining Francesco and Nicolò for this endeavor is Anna Arfen (keys), Charlie Davis (bass) and Bradley HillierSmith (Drums).”

Track: 6.30

Blitzkrieg guitars are unleashed from the get-go, echoing vocals jump in shortly after, flashy synths also want their piece of the action and when you think this speedy ripper will roar madly all the way through the tempo drops, slow-mo drums take over
for a second and you suddenly realise these noiseniks actually are busy to mess up your poor mind, your already spinning head and your by now dangerously beating pulse. And they bloody succeed. This unpredictable uppercut takes you on a pell-mell roller coaster and will knock you out with its trashy finale. Wanna join this bonkers ride? Here you go…

Expect multiple layers of bloodthirsty guitars coming straight at you and knocking you all over. This unstoppable tsunami stroke roars fiercely like a Grand Prix bolide. Hell yeah!


3/ ‘Salvation’ by THE BERRIES (Seattle, WA, US)
The first single of Seattle artist Matt Berry‘s new project combines Neil Young‘s electrical emotionalism and Dinosaur Jr‘s jingle jangle melancholy. Final result is soul-stirring and heart-touching. Debut LP ‘Start All Over Again‘ out in October via Help Yourself Records

4/ ‘Young Man Old Boy’ by TIMI TEMPLE (Sydney, Australia)
This glammy pop firecracker rattles tremendously from the very imposing start to
the shaking end. A sticky ripper that will invade your bloodstream instantly. Top cut!


5/ ‘Sophomore’ by HONEY LUNG (London, UK)
An intensely passionate and overwhelmingly electrifying LOUDquitLOUD escapade hard to resist. Like My Bloody Valentine meeting up with early Nirvana for a rambunctious jam. Ace!
