Hello music lovers! 🎵🎧🎵
The weekend is upon us and so is a fresh selection of #newtunes! If you don't happen to have a smarter job (and if you're hanging out on Hive after a successful hardfork you probably don't 😁), you can treat yourself to a few minutes of different genres of sounds to listen to while you're working on new projects or over the weekend.
I'm almost certain that something will catch your [ear]eye, even if it's mostly lesser-known artists.
As usual, if you don't like something, feel free to skip it! 🍻
This week I even post something for #threetunetuesday. What's it? Click the tag and you'll see.
Disq - The Hardest Part
Disq, a rock band from Wisconsin, recently released their second album "Desperately Imagining Someplace Quiet" in which they continue in the same style as their first album. Three indie guitar distortions and pop melodies create a pleasant and mostly nostalgic sound picture that lingers in the ears after a few listens.
Tom MacDonald - Sheeple
This Canadian rapper and former professional wrestler is somehow controversial. Well, at least that's how the mainstream media portrays him (when he's lucky enough to be mentioned at all). But his fans claim he speaks the "unfiltered truth". I would not go into that, because I have seen (and heard) a lot of things.
Regardless, his language is sharp and fluid, and his rap is (for me, as a die-hard rockin' roller) quite acceptable. Well, here's his latest track Sheeple, released today on all platforms.
Thanks to @unklebonehead for reminding me about it. I'm sure it will quickly top the charts in terms of viewership and listenership.
The Mars Volta - Flash Burns From Flashbacks
I thought this band had disappeared, I watched and recorded them enthusiastically a couple of times in 2002, and I even wrote about them five years ago, unfortunately, the video is no longer on DTube.
The Mars Volta is a band that, at their peak, played wild three-hour gigs in front of big halls, stretching out adventurous jams and solos, and recording dizzying, chaotic, progressive, epic rock records. That's why a generation believed in them at the time because they were the only band that could afford to do so, that's why they were so inimitable.
Here we have a new incarnation of the band, the harmonies, and vocals, and the guitars are there too, albeit tamed and controlled. However, it's not the same story I knew.
Oneida - Low Tide
Oneida, a band from New York, has been around for 20 years and in that time they have produced a fair amount of music that hasn't reached a large audience, but they don't seem to care too much about that.
They don't hide their roots at all, specifically New York rock with a touch of psychedelia, noise, a pinch of electronica, repetition, and improvisation.
Mahan Mirarab - Say Your Most Beautiful Word
Mahan Mirarab is an Iranian-Austrian guitarist, composer, arranger, and record producer currently based in Vienna and Berlin. "Say Your Most Beautiful Word" is Mahan's seventh album and the process of making it has focused on opening up to music and bypassing definitions and labels. He has a guitar with two necks, the neck without frets allows him to make a microtonal sound (King Gizzard is known for this style...).
The song "Say Your Most Beautiful Word" in Farsi, or in Persian, the language of Western Iran, outlines the spirit of the current protests in Iran. It's about uncovering hidden suffering in silence, about a song that isn't sung in vain but is heard, about the sun that will rise again tomorrow and bring something new.
Gilla Band - Backwash
Gilla Band is a postpunk and noise group from Dublin. This song is taken from their new, third album "Most Normal". A pulsing beat swallowed by amps buzzing like wasps and an itchy, uncomfortable guitar strum is the perfect backdrop for the singer's deadpan, confessional sound. A kaleidoscopic spectrum of noise put to the service of broken pop songs, an Avant-punk roller coaster ride under the influence of FX special effects, and passages of futuristic dance nihilism. Yeah, that's Gilla Band.
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - Iron Lung
Again. Can't believe that they released 8 albums this year. That's crazy even for me.
This piece (with AI-powered video) is from their latest "Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms and Lava". I simply have no words, I will quote one fan from Bandcamp with whom I agree:
KGLW is the best band on the planet right now, probably even the best in the universe. If any extraterrestrial beings out there think they can top it, send me the link, I'm all ears.
Fret - Rhino Patch
Fret is perhaps better known to extreme genre fans by his birth name Mick Harris. For those who don't have that knowledge, he is the person who is blamed for the creation of one of metal's sub-genres - grindcore. Mick Harris was the drummer of Napalm Death between 1985 and 1991. When he stopped drumming he threw himself into electronica, and in the last thirty years of experimenting with electronica and dubstep, he still persists somewhere on the fringes of all these genres. Distorted sounds, vocal outtakes and beats mix with violent, breakbeat-inspired bass drum rhythms. More for fans, probably hard to digest for the rest :)
ugh... there's a mess ... I need to change something ... this year ... maybe 😁
... anyway, if you're curious just click the dates and listen to songs ...
