A brand new SEVEN IN THE MIX for a brand new week!
Seven lively strokes I played on repeat these past days
Seven top-notch tracks to feed body & soul all week long
Turn up the volume! Music is the dope! Here’s the stuff!
1/ ‘Valentine’ by HAARM (Liverpool, England)
Delightful dream pop rainbow with a New Order synth touch and bright Flaming Lips’ colors. Healing, sunny and dancey, all at the same time. Ideal to activate your senses and limbs…

2/ ‘Wasting Away’ by ADAM & ELVIS (London/Reading, UK)
Don’t even try to resist this sheeny pop earworm. The glistening mix of sparkling guitars, sultry synths, sharp observations, a Devo edge and a top chorus is just irresistible. A HIT!..

3/ ‘Nothing Ever Happened’ by THE MIGHTY ORCHID KING (St Albans, Hertfordshire, UK)
Here’s a dazzling journey through psych pop land. Electrical and melodic firework. Imagine The Beatles and The Byrds on a LSD trip together. Check their 4-track EP here on Bandcamp

4/ ‘Spectacular Bid’ by NORMA (Sweden)
Erik Vallin (bass/vocals) was inspired to write this song by a picture, belonging to his grandfather, of a race horse that he remembered from his childhood. You can actually hear the horses in this sensitive and cinematic sound scape. Folks, we have a winner!
NORMA: Facebook – Label: Novoton
5/ ‘Wait Up’ by THE BY GODS (Nashville, Tennessee, US)
A quiet, yet solid bass/drum intro with reflective vocals all over it turns suddenly in an apocalyptic wall-of-sound! Perfect outburst to start a fight with your demons! Hell yeah!

6/ ‘Something Good’ by BEACH FOR TIGER (London, UK)
Ravishing guitar pop excitation going full speed before slowing down for a moody finale…

7/ ‘Screen’ by K!NDERHOOK (OKC, US)
Spin an addictive melody in a mix of squeaky guitars and warm synths. Add a pumping rhythm and perform the whole shebang with panache and what you get is a big score!…

See/hear you next week, music junkies…
