Italian pop act THE BANKROBBER released
their newest single CARRY ME ON last month.
Turn Up The Volume wrote: “New musing Carry Me On feels like a nightly
gloaming. Acoustic soul-searching and intimate tenderness. The darksome
sorrowfulness of the late great Buckley legends floats all over this gloomy
Giacomo Oberti ballad. The Bankrobber is back and still has the lockdown
And here’s the video clip for the song. As always, made with images fitting
the song’s heart and soul, with stylishness and refinement, visualizing the
tristesse of the protagonist in this one beautifully. Melancholia in motion.

Last October the fabtatsic garage rock hellcats DEATH VALLEY GIRLS returned from
their Los Angeles graves for their flabbergasting, third, album UNDER THE SPELL OF JOY. Sonically a different beast than the previous two longplayers. To Turn Up The Volume‘s hungry ears the DVG’s best and boldest work (so far).
To remind the world of this big LP, Death Valley Girls disclosed a new video for one of
the highlights Little Things. To remind the world of all three previous clips I decided
to show them all together, right here, starting with the fresh one, of course.
Dim the lights, take a big bucket of popcorn, and
let your eyes and ears have a spell-binding time …

Anti-war song GIVE PEACE A CHANGE was written by JOHN LENNON
(but credited to Lennon–McCartney) and recorded with his PLASTIC ONO
BAND, including his wife Yoko Ono and a bunch of famous friends in
Montreal, Canada back in 1969.
Previously unseen footage has now come to the surface with John & Yoko
in the Sheraton Oceanus Hotel in the Bahamas a week before Montreal, while
on their bed-in tour, with Lennon playing a rough, at times crazy, version of

Last Friday world-famous singer/songwriter LANA DEL REY
released her highly acclaimed, 7th album titled Chemtrails
Over The Country Club.
Paste Magazine wrote: “It’s an enjoyable listen that cinematically celebrates
Del Rey’s vocal prowess. But perhaps most importantly, it places her front and
center as the scrappy protagonist no one expects to win. Victory is irrelevant,
however, since she is exactly where she belongs.”
Along with the LP’s release came a video clip for one
of the near-whispering ballads called WHITE DRESS.
Yes, Lana Del Rey knows how to roller skate…
