Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…
British post-punk trio TRAAMS formed in 2011, released two riff-energizing longplayers,
so far. Grin (2013) and Modern Dancing (2015) and then got totally out of the picture for about five years.
But back in August, they showed sign of life with a 10-minute massive jam titled
The Greyhound (listen below) and today they dropped another smack which the
band already wrote a few years ago in Paris when touring with Car Seat Headrest.
INTERCONTINENTAL RADIO WAVES is a different beast. A bang-bang slam with
rattling drums, propulsive bass, turbulent guitars and an overall infectious groove.
Here’s the animated video from director Stewart Armstrong…

14 August / 16 August 2020…
Five new firecrackers to boost your weekend…
1. ‘She Loved You’ by MARK LANEGAN remixed by IYEARA (US/UK)
A ritual voodoo-like disco dance. Pitchy synth beats for the twilight hours. On
21st August the full remix album of Mark Lanegan‘s 11th LP Somebody’s Knocking
by British electro duo Iyeara comes out, re-titled ‘Another Knock At The Door‘.
2.’Tulsa’ by ERIIS (Belgium)
This fresh passion-rock trio’s mantra is Chaos, Strife And Discord. Their sound is as monumental as the cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris and this debut single is nothing
less than awesome. A terrific reflection on the Tulsa Race Riots that occurred in 1921.
3. ‘Prism’ by BULLY (Nashville, Tennessee)
Vehement and electrical power-pop slam with a “happy go lucky/fuck-it-all attitude”
and ardent vocals by Alicia Bognanno. Third album SUGAREGG arrives next week.
4. ‘The Greyhound’ by TRAAMS (Chicester, UK)
British post-punk trio back after four years to do what they do best. Taking the listener
on an ongoing riff-tastic trance trip with an instant mind-boggling impact. Impressive!
The first of a trio of new pieces coming our way over the next few months.
5. ‘Baby Let’s Make It Real’ by EELS (UK)
The beautiful freak is back with a vintage Eels humdinger. Reflective, wistful, strangely catchy and deadpan lines like “Baby, you’re a full meal, the way you make me feel/ It’s
kind of a big deal/ Baby, let’s make it real.” Welcome back Mark Oliver Everett.
See/hear you next week, music junkies…
