Eleven killer tracks we played on repeat in September!
A crazed fusion of roaring rippers and galvanizing grooves
energizing all of our senses and our limbs this past month!
Here’s Turn Up The Volume‘s Knockout September Team!

1. ‘Dark Stains’ by EXPLODED VIEW (Mexico/Berlin)
A truly booming dance knockout. Its ongoing menacing and eurhythmic vibrancy is simply irresistible and will put a spell on your senses. New album Obey out today. Stream here.


2. ‘Dirty Boy’ feat. Barry Adamson by A CERTAIN RATIO (Manchester, UK)
The veteran Manchester post punks still make your hips sway uncontrollably. With special guest (ex-Magazine) Barry Adamson you can hit the dance floor and funk yourself dizzy…


3. ‘Danny Nedelko’ by IDLES (Bristol, UK)
A moshpit punk uppercut from the band’s smashing new longplayer Joy As An Act Of Resistance. It will catapult this hot-blooded gang of misfits into the premier rock league.

4. ‘Get Along’ by FADE AWAAYS (Toronto, Canada)
This loud-mouthed corker, made to energize mad crowds, confirms that guitar rock is still alive and kicking! Expect uproarious riffs, a pumping bass/drums force and a killer chorus.


5. ‘Bigfoot’ by DIANE GRACE (Belgium)
Demonic and exorcistic, yet catchy as bloody hell. Hot boiling ripper from this up and coming punk desperados’ debut EP ‘Panic!’. Stream/buy the whole shebang right here.


6. ‘When We Left’ by SOMEDAYS (London, UK)
Its glowing drive, its tenacious pace and its confident dynamic will vitalize your adrenaline’s stream and will activate your nerves. The Strokes are dead! Long live Somedays! Damn right.

7. ‘Graphite’ by TWIST HELIX (Newcastle upon Tyne. UK)
Here’s a wholehearted, passion injected synths power stroke. Ardent, blazing and totally infectious. An anxious crackerjack strongly intensified by frontwoman Bea Garcia‘s vox.


8. ‘The Present’ by MOVIESTAR feat. Professor Elemental (Oslo, Norway)
This is a funky hippy-hoppy party humdinger featuring the wacko steampunk-rapper Professor Elemental. Its funny, trippy, poppy, dancey and totally contagious all the way.


9. ‘The Beast Of Love’ by HERSELF Featuring JONATHAN DONAHUE (Italy/US)
A stirring ballad feat. Jonathan Donahue, angelic vox of legendary New York dreamers Mercury Rev. The song resonates like a sensitive symphony growing fuller along its starry-eyed path. New LP by Herself aka Italian singer/songwriter Gioele Valenti out 19th October.

10. ‘Young Fools’ by SMALL MILLION (Portland, Oregon, US)
A highly charming pop pearl with singer Malachi Graham‘s gracious vox turning the sticky melody into a moony reverie. Ryan Linder‘s poetic guitar play adds magic to this beauty.


11. ‘As One’ by SUEDE (London, UK)
Grand and epic symphony. It’s the magnificent opener from the glam rockers’ new album ‘The Blue Hour‘. There’s a phenomenal choir in there that just blows my mind. Top score!

Pop Synth Duo SMALL MILLION Impresses With Moony Pearl ‘YOUNG FOOLS’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

21 August 2018


Who: Ryan Linder + Malachi Graham forming “a fervent Portland-based synth pop duo writing richly textured songs with impassioned lyrics and dark melodic hooks.” They released their debut EP ‘Before The Fall’ in 2016.

Track: YOUNG FOOLS – the title track from new, upcoming EP. According to Graham the song is about the evolving nature of friendships. “I’m nostalgic for those days when time felt endless, and for the depth and quality of relationships that emerge from boredom, and how hard it is to maintain those relationships as a overcommitted adult.” she explains.

Score: Young Fools has a magical, yet gloomy tone with singer Malachi Graham‘s gracious and alluring vox turning the sensitive melody into a moony reverie. Linder‘s poetic guitar lines and overall delicately arranged instrumentation paints the whole sonic picture just beautifully. Capture the starry-eyed little pearl right here, you won’t be bored at all…

That night when all the lights when out in our place
We strung a cord from our friends next door to play the stereo
So we could dance in the dark

Blackout blackout
Young fools

Why aren’t we bored anymore?
Why aren’t we bored anymore?

Punch-drunk, too awake to sleep. 4 a.m.
out on the porch the bottle kept us warm
we passed a cigarette so we could
dance in the light
all night, all night

Young fools

We couldn’t stop laughing, my head in your lap
When you braided my hair too tight and I snapped
I swore I’d keep in touch
how we swore we’d keep in touch

Young fools
Why aren’t we bored anymore?
