THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN – 7 New Firecrackers From The Past 7 Days

7  from the past 7 days

1. ‘This Night’ by SUPERCHUNK (North Carolina)

The second single from their 11th LP
called Wild Loneliness, out 25 February.

Mac McCaughan (guitarist) About: “Like much of Wild Loneliness, this song was
written in the mode of “let’s look around and be thankful for what we have rather
than focusing on what Republicans have taken from an entire generation.”

Never too old to rattle and roll…

2. Slowly Separate by CROWS (London, UK)

Almost three years after their debut album Silver Tongues this must-hear
post-punk hit team returns with follow-up Beware Believers, out 1st of April.

James Cox (frontman): “Slowly Separate is about living in London, working a job
you hate and just going through the mundane routine of hand to mouth living.”

A blazing uppercut with the
cutting force of a chainsaw.

Yeahhhhhhhh

3. ‘Am I Really Going To Die’ by WHITE LIES (London)

Another warm-up piece from their upcoming
6th longplayer, out on 18 February.

Not a happy one, yet funky and jumpy in sound…

4. ‘Wake Me Up’ by FOALS (UK)

I’m not a big fan of remixes unless the remixer – in this case, electro duo
Flight Facilities – transforms a head-dazzling rocker into a head-dazzling
disco stomper that works like a vaccination with a shot of adrenalin.

Yoohoo! Party time…

5. ‘Lights’ by BAND OF HORSES (Seattle, US)

Album number six Things Are Great hit the streets on 4 March.
And they dropped taster number three Lights a few days ago.

An experience with security guards and the police flashing
their lights inspired frontman Ben Bridwell to write this song.

Vibrant vibe…

6. ‘Thrown’ by BODEGA (NYC)

I’m sure that this Big Apple indie squad has all Parquet Courts records on their shelves. You already could hear it on their 2019 debut album Endless Scroll and their second one, titled Broken Equipment looks to go in the same direction when hearing new single Thrown.

Not original but tumbling
and revolving nevertheless…

7. ‘Fraggle Rock Rock’ by FOO FIGHTERS (Seattle, US)

Seems like Dave Grohl and his Fighters adore the spotlights
and do anything to have them shine on them every day.

Check this… children’s television series Fraggle Rock gets a full revival on Apple TV+ and yes, you already guessed it, the Foos are among the musical guests on the show. For the occasion, they wrote this bonkers retro rocker that triggers your laughing muscles.

Have fun

WHITE LIES Announce New Album And Share Riveting Title Track ‘AS I TRY NOT TO FALL APART’

New sonic strokes

27 September 2021

Band: WHITE LIES
Who: Famed indie band from Ealing, London, UK
Active: Since 2007 / 6 studio albums (including new one)

New album: AS I TRY NOT TO FALL APART
Release: 18th February 2022
Order-info: here

New single: AS I TRY NOT TO FALL APART – title track

The band: “We wrote this song really quickly, late one night and often
the songs that come quickest are written from the gut and the heart. We
wanted the melody to feel like a hymn, to give the confessional lyrics weight
despite being wrapped up as a pop song. It’s about accepting vulnerability
as a man and knowing it’s OK to be broken. There’s never been a more
pressing time to spread the message that it’s OK to not be OK.”
.”

The new piece is a moody electro earworm,
bringing Editors to mind. Fetching and catching.

Tune in here…
