TURN UP THE VOLUME’S Selection Of Five Brand New MUST-HEAR Albums…

New longplayers that will have an impact on your ears and your speakers

1/ ‘The Room In The Wood’ by THE ROOM IN THE WOOD (Liverpool, UK)
The Room in the Wood is a collaborative project featuring Paul Cavanagh and Dave Jackson. The first since their band ‘The Room‘ split in 1985. The duo designed a wondrous record that sounds intriguing and pure, that feels soulful and heartwarming and reminds me, now and then, of gloomy Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen moments. Compelling songwriting.

2/ ‘You Can Run… You Can’t Hide’ by ACESKULLY (Fort Lauderdale, FL, US)
Aceskully is musical tandem Ulysses Perez and Kayce Armstrong. Their new LP is just amazing. Adventurous trips with influences by experimental legends David Bowie,
PJ Harvey
and Depeche Mode among others. Stellar mix of gripping electronics, stirring
pop dynamics and remarkable male/female singing. Tour de force in sound and vision!

3/ ‘Room With A View’ by ECHO COURTS (North Carolina, US)
Modern-day pop balladry influenced by exquisite Americana singer/songwriters of the past. Like a 21st Century Gram Parsons with glimmering guitars, punchy melodies, striking vocals. Emotional reveries for the twilight hours. Touching, comforting and melancholic.

Brooklyn’s VEDA RAYS Share Mysterious Serpentine Video Clip For Haunting Track ‘THE UPSIDEDOWN TREE’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

16 April 2018

Sonically VEDA RAYS is a band you’ll find at the crossroad where post-punk, darkwave, synth-pop, shoegaze and 80s new romanticism meet. The Brooklyn based collective just shared an enigmatic video clip for THE UPSIDEDOWN TREE. A track from their 2017 EP.

Frontman and clip director Jim Stark says: “The concepts which inform the song and video
are somewhat abstract but relate to the idea of inverting the accepted symbol sets in order to ‘divine’ the ‘truth’ i.e. see a clearer vision of reality, which is seldom black or white. In simpler terms, it’s about trying to peer through the heavy veil that is the seemingly hopeless madness
of the times we are living in.”

The Upsidedown Tree‘ is a spine-tingling and haunting sonic whirlwind energized with scintillating guitar waves, pushing drums and flashy synths with Stark‘s stirring vox all
over it. The song’s swirling pace will stimulate your adrenalin’s stream from the very start. Here’s the mysterious, serpentine clip…
