Quote - kopie (2)

Eleven killer tracks played on heavy repeat in November!
A heated melting pot of flaming rippers and glowing grooves
energizing all of my senses and all of my limbs this past month!
Here’s Turn Up The Volume‘s Knockout November Team!

.
1. ‘Ride’ by GHXST (Brooklyn, NY, US)
Multi-guitar-layered drones and murky electronics create an ominous tension that feels both mystifying and hypnotic. Tenebrous vibe with arresting effect. Intoxicating score!


GHXST: Facebook

2. ‘Cave Person’ by PEUK (Belgium)
New Belgian sensation balancing between legendary giants such as Sonic Youth and
The Breeders, with vivid panache, thirsty passion and edgy strokes. Debut LP early 2019.


PEUK: Facebook

3. ‘Too Real’ by FONTAINES D.C. (Dublin, Ireland)
One of the hottest and most challenging bands of the moment. ‘Too Real‘ is a febrile rollercoaster jam with frontman Chatten asking urgently on repeat “Is it too real for ya?“.


FONTAINES D.C. Facebook

4. ‘Be Alright’ by THE DANDY WARHOLS (Portland, Oregon, US)
Catchy swinger from upcoming LP to start their 25th birthday orgies on record & stage.


THE DANDYS: Facebook

5. ‘Hang On’ by THE LEGAL IMMIGRANTS (Grand Rapids, Michigan, US)
This is a blistering ripper, growling like a rioting act of rebellion against complacency. with an ongoing drumfire cadence that energizes every nerve in your body. Let’s all stand up & act!


THE LEGAL IMMIGRANTS: Facebook

6. ‘Knockout’ by SOMEDAYS (London, UK)
Their jingle jangle influences are obvious, but their youthful dynamics push the beat to razor-sharp level. This dazzling ripper will circulate in your mind for some days. Bingo!


SOMEDAYS: Facebook

7. ‘Methathonin’
by DESTROY BOYS (Sacramento, CA, US)
This turbulent female driven Californian three-piece re-injects riot grrl’s vehemence and feminist punk outspokenness with fresh adrenalin. Check their new LP ‘Make Room‘ here.


DESTROY BOYS: Facebook

8.’All Dolled Up’ by PARLIAMO (Scotland)
A stormy uppercut from its first swaggering beat to its flamboyant finale. Banging drums, hurry-scurry guitars, nasty bass, edged vocals and a scream & shout-along chorus. Top!


PARLIAMO: Facebook

9. ‘I Want More’ by AL MOSES (Wales)
Barbed wire riffage, stomping beating, vocal spitting, and an overall rowdy panache that gets you in the right mood to kick all bloody Trumps and Mays off this messed-up planet.


AL MOSES: Facebook

10. ‘Peculiar Form Of Sleep’ by WOVOKA GENTLE (London, UK)
Richly orchestrated and terrifically arranged pop kick, spiced with multi-layered harmonies and exalting synths. You will experience this jaunty crackerjack like being on a carousel.


WOVOKA GENTLE: Facebook

11. ‘Stowaway’ by FAVOURS (Toronto, Canada)
A melodious rainbow with harmonious male/female vocals, vibrant electronics and twinkling guitars creating a cocoon you want to hide in now & then to refind yourself.


FAVOURS: Facebook

Even After 25 Years There’s No Doubt – Groove Masters THE DANDY WARHOLS Are Here ‘FOREVER’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

25 October 2018

Portland‘s legendary jam masters THE DANDY WARHOLS have big plans for 2019.
The quartet will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a new (10th) LP and live shows.
To start the festive party here’s new single FOREVER . A slo-mo groove with a darkish undertone sounding like a hip classical symphony. Both enigmatic and magnetic. Both funky and ghostly. Let it be loud and clear… The Dandys are here to stay!

Frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor said about the accompanying clip for the new track:
“To get a feel for the massive length of our career in a three and a half minute video, I broke
it up into 3 parts and used Greek mythology as my guide. First, the labyrinth with the minotaur guarding the passage. A classic jerk doorman with a tiny nose ring making us wait as if he’s gotta make sure these are the right ghosts. Welcome to our lives. Next, the hermaphrodite angel (wearing a tie as subtle symbolism). Sweet and just wants to be helpful, not making a distinction whether it’s for better or worse. Finally, Cerberus the multi-headed dog, which represents our personal demons or whatever drives us to continue doing this.”

“All in all it sounds like and probably is a pretentious
lot of shit, but it sure feels good to do it anyway.”

Let’s roll…

5 May 2018

This weekend will be one of the first sunny ones of the year, so far, in my home
country Belgium (and almost all over Europe). Time for our first 2018 BBQ. I guess Portland‘s groove masters THE DANDY WARHOLS were aware of this as they released their new album ‘LIVE FROM COWBOY CHRISTMAS‘ just yesterday from a show recorded 9 December last year at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland. A weird – Xmas mood in Spring – but, nevertheless, appropriate soundtrack for this exciting, sunlit weekend. Come on, you little drummer boy, let’s start the part. Right here, right now …

TURN UP THE VOLUME’s Jiving JUKEBOX – Here Are Psych Groove Experts… THE DANDY WARHOLS

Only the greats can fill a jukebox with memorable moments…

24 April 2018

THE DANDY WARHOLS are, without a shadow of a doubt, the supreme kings (& queen)
of ‘psychedelic groovin‘ and ‘chill-out jamming‘. FACT! This non-stop-dope-vibe-turbo was conceived in Portland, Oregon back in 1994 by eccentric singer-guitarist Courtney Taylor-Taylor and guitarist Peter Holmström. They were joined by the utterly cool keyboardist Zia McCabe and drummer Eric Hedford, replaced in 1998 by Taylor-Taylor‘s cousin Brent DeBoer. They started their sonic explorations in 1995 with debut longplayer ‘Dandys Rule OK‘. And they still bloody rule! With a total of nine studio albums it was actually hard to pick only 15 solid gold crackers to fill our Wurlitzer. Anyway, here’s TURN UP THE VOLUME‘s swinging selection. Every day should be a Dandy Warhols holiday. Wake up, world! It’s party time!…

.
The songs were selected from the following longplayers: Dandy’s Rule OK! (1995) /
The Dandy Warhols Come Down (1997) / Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia (2000) / Welcome To The Monkey House (2003) / Odditorium Or Warlords Of Mars (2005) / Earth To The Dandy Warhols (2008) / This Machine (2012) / Distortland (2016)
