4 December 2022

Iceland’s musical nymph BJÖRK released her, critically
lauded ,10th longplayer, named FOSSORA last September.

For SORROWFUL SOIL, one of the LP’s highlights she just shared
a video clip, directed by Viðar Logi, in which Björk is traveling to
Fagradalsfjall, a recently erupted Icelandic volcano.

Björk: “Sorrowful soil is a song I wrote from random improvisations.
I kinda thought I was writing another song but then when I edited it
I threw away most of the stuff and this is what stood there staring at
me. Sorrowful Soil and Ancestress are 2 songs written for my mother.

Singer-Songwriter Project MOURNING COFFEE With 2 Twin Songs And 1 Video Clip

2 December 2022

Artist: MOURNING COFFEE
Who: Singer-songwriter from New Jersey

New songs: Gemini I and Gemini II.

Mourning Coffee: “Gemini’s archetype is known as The Twins, therefore I created ‘Gemini I’ & ‘Gemini II’. There is no container big enough for all the different selves we hold. Both songs are the same yet expressed differently, which felt fitting since Gemini governs communication and connection. Both touch on these themes heavily, as the protagonist gets lost in an exchange of words with someone new. Even before meeting them, he’s attracted to their energy. Given Gemini’s element is air, both versions express a lightness musically, and much like air picks up, both get more intense as the relationship develops. While ‘Gemini I’ keeps things more intimate like a secret, ‘Gemini II’ allows itself to be more wild and free.”

Two bittersweet related twin pearls.

Only last week London’s colourful feminists BUGEYE scored big time with their new punchy single SIGNS & EXIT. A song about bullying, lost innocence and the need to
feel safe and loved.

Turn Up The Volume said: “Despite the fact that energy prices are going through
the roof (fuck Putin) you don’t need to spend money on central heating if you want
to stay home when it’s too cold outside. Dress funky, paint yourself up, turn up Bugeye, pirouette yourself in a trance and let the sweat flow.”

And now the zestful ladies have a video out to visualize their fresh stunner.
The clip is directed by Laura Jean Marsh and inspired by the psychological
drama movie We Need to Talk About Kevin from 2011.

Sonic And Visual Psychedelia – Portland’s Indie Rock Duo QUASI Dropped New Single ‘DOOMSCROLLERS’

21 November 2022

Band: QUASI

Who: Indie pop/rock duo – Sam Coomes (vocals, guitar, rocksichord, various keyboards, bass) and Janet Weiss (vocals and drums / she was the longtime drummer of Sleater-Kinney) from Portland, fighting the dehumanizing machine since 1993.
Albums: 10 so far, including the upcoming new one (the first in 10 years).

New single: DOOMSCROLLERS

The 2nd piece the tandem share, following lead-single Queen Of Ears from upcoming album Breaking The Balls Of History. Out on 10 February 2023 via Sub Pop.


The album’s artwork

Quasi sing the Covic blues on this new track Doomscrollers. It’s a song about taking
solace in the simple pleasures (blackberry pie à la mode anyone?) a sing along for the disheartened. Inspired by Willy Wonka‘s psychedelic trip down the chocolate river.

TUTV: Doomscrollers is a slo-mo psych groove with 60s sonic colors and that legendary Hammond organs resonance. A sort of back-to-the-future experience with a chorus that will circle in your head for a while.

The video is wonderfully directed and conceptualized by B.A. Miale.

Scottish Dropouts HUMOUR Share Bizzare Video For Their Disaster Single ‘GOOD BOYS REMEMBER WELL’

New clips for your eager eyes

8 November 2022

Band: HUMOUR
Who: 5 eager Scots, 4 from Edinburgh, 1 from Perth,
now all making noise together in Glasgow.

New video/single: GOOD BOYS REMEMEBER WELL
Clip for the latest single of their upcoming 6-track debut EP,
named Pure Misery, out 25 November. Pre-order info here.

“This song’s about a really tragic submarine disaster Andreas (frontman) heard about
one day. He just lifts a bunch of particularly sad lines from Wikipedia about it rather than adding too much of his own perspective. I’ve always thought this was a cool thing about this song. It seems like he’s got a megaphone and is just sort of relentlessly listing facts and figures about the disaster in a desperate attempt to make you feel the way he did when he heard
about it.”

TUTV: Starts like a theme’s intro of a horror movie. Scratching guitars and uncanny murmur from the grave. A minute later frontman Andreas Christodoulidis sneers his
ranting report of, yes, a submarine going down, sounding helpless, agitated, and and hyperkinetic until a sudden end stops his broadcast. Das Boot is down now. This is not
a joke. It’s bizzare stuff with mind-bending progression for a disastrous story.

I dig baffling shit like this.

Roll the tape and be ready for some shockwaves…

GMBT LIFE With A Visual Impression Of ‘ALASKA MORNING SKIES’

Band: GmBt Life
Who: France-based trio from different countries, who live in diverse regions, and who routinely meet to play music. They like to begin with bare melodies and then improvise with various instruments and PCs.

They released a new, excellent, longplayer called 10 Minutes last April, with a mix
of tranquilizing piano-driven musings, cinematic reveries with spacey Pink Floyd-like reverberating here and there, and tender, ambient synth meditations.

And now we can enjoy a misty collage video for ALASKA MORNING SKIES,
one of the album’s highlights.

British Indies WEIMAR Have Their Halloween Video Out For Grisly Story ‘THE HANGERS-ON’

30 October 2022


(Photo by Zac Gale)

Band: WEIMAR (pronounced Vy-marr – nothing to do
with Germany’s former Weimar Republic I suppose)

Who: Eclectic progressive art-rock quartet formed in 2016 in
Manchester (UK). They produce a range of styles from post-punk roots
to no-wave, cabaret, chanson, jazz, funk, psychedelia, alternative folk
and gothic rock, coming together in a distinctive fusion.

The band have their Halloween moment too with a scary video for THE HANGERS-ON,
a grisly story off their excellent album Dancing On A Volcano, that came out last June.

A carnivalesque Art Rock tune, a depraved foray into the twisted mentality of a stalker,
and people who present themselves as being your best friend yet blatantly have far more sinister intentions. The music reflects this, it has a lush gentle sound in places but is menacing and eerie at the same time.

Don’t trust clowns around Halloween time…

Hungarian Songstress VERA JONAS Impresses In Sound And Vision With Pensive Pearl ‘KESERGÉS’

Artist: VERA JONAS EXPERIMENT
Who: Award-winning artist from Hungary who sways you with
her tender music or makes you dance with her tiger-wild songs.

New single/video: KESERGÉS.

A highlight from her recently released new album HOLD.

Vera Jones: “For me, Kesergés is about a kind of cycle. Everything comes full circle, the
wheat ripens, the heart heals after it’s been hurt. The intro to the music is not coincidentally
a ‘uroboros’, a symbol of a snake biting its own tail. The fragmented but circular syllables also symbolize that everything we do will be reflected in our relationships, our living environment, but also in nature. This film is an impression of our brutal summer of 2022, where we had a very hot summer, so we tried to take many showers, while the Great Plain was severely damaged by drought. When I first saw this footage, I thought it was taken on another
continent, or at least in Southern Europe. This is happening no
w”

TUTV: Intruiging song. Intriguing voice. Intriguing artist.

Kesergés is a meditative reverie about the unexceptional hot summer we just experienced, confirming once more that our climate is messed up in an alarming way. Vera Jones creates an atmosphere of urgent reflection embedded in a mesmeric melody.

This pensive pearl is sung in her native Hungarian language. To be honest, I had no clue how Hungarian actually sounded until now, and its, yes, exotic resonance surprised me.

Watch the impressive accompanying video clip.
The images speak for themselves…
