Hello music lovers! 🎵🎧🎵
After a pretty busy business week abroad (I got sick in between :(), I'm finally home again and I'm writing down my musical impressions or, #newtunes if you like, a basis or suggestions for listening over the weekend.
Some new musicians, unknown to me, and some established ones, but all of them wanted attention.
If something catches your attention, that's OK, and I'll be happy to share it. If you don't like something, feel free to skip it.
The Cult - A Cut Inside
After six years, finally a new album "Under the Midnight Sun". A band whose music, according to Ian Astbury's own words, can be attributed to a simple formula: melody + guitar, which are the basic premises for every ethnic rock band. Without a doubt, The Cult really is that.
In short, a solid album of old rockers with consistent material that can easily be enjoyed repeatedly. And this song is a taster.
Will Sheff - Nothing Special
Will Sheff, more known as the frontman of Austin, Texas, indie band Okkervil River, his first solo album named "Nothing Special". This song is an entry to the album. Spontaneous live sound, acoustic guitar and that is it. Sounds better than his band, if you ask me.
Red Sun Atacama - Furies
This band is new to me. A justified dose of skepticism arises when you read that the band plays a mix of psychedelia/stoner rock/punk/desert rock/heavy rock/garage rock. But all doubts are unjustified when listening to truly hellish tunes by this trio from Paris.
And all of this is well seasoned with an energetic, unconventional, hoarse, adventurous concert in which wild and sometimes chaotic bursts of imagination are constant impulses that awaken the tingles in your legs. When you hear the track "Furies" from their latest album "Darwin" you will understand.
I highly recommend it.
Spiral Mind - Hexagon Valley
Spiral Mind is a young trio from the Slovenian coastal region with a lot of musical experience. This song is an introduction to their upcoming second album, which should be released later this year. Dynamic instrumental bursts intertwine in sounds of jazz-beat, electro-rhythm, and prog-rock elements, backed by trip-hop, and end in a calm sea of cadence. I will follow this crew because they have a lot to say.
Pixies - Nomatterday
The Pixies' new studio album has been long and eagerly awaited. Finally, unburdened by the band's past, they have opened a brand new chapter in their career. I don't know if it's even necessary to stress how important the Pixies are to the development of alternative music. With this album "Doggerel", it is obvious that they have returned to good, old form, but they are creatively oriented towards new paths and different creative solutions. Their bass is solid, their drumming is as reliable and emphatic as ever, and they have no restraint in bringing out the creative essence in their guitars. Recommended for everyone, not just fans.
Dungen - Möbler
After seven years, Swedish psych rock band Dungen has released their second album, entitled "En Är För Mycket Och Tusen Aldrig Nog". In English this should be something as "One is too many and a thousand is never enough". Glasba je tu utemeljena v posebni nostalgiji, je eterična, zavlečena in sanjska, a nikoli grozeča. Svež in svetel zvok, ki občasno zaide v bolj groovy sekcije. Pravi primerek psych rocka, v katerem prednjačijo orgle, čiste kitare in seveda tolkala.
Loraine James - Maybe If I (Stay On It)
Loraine James, a non-binary black electronic producer, has this year incorporated a piece of Julius Eastman's discography into her deconstructed production, which ranges from ambient to techno, on the album "Building Something Beautiful For Me". Julius Eastman was black, gay and a composer, singer, and dancer, working in a conservative white straight world. Despite his education and intellectual and creative sophistication, he was slowly pushed to the margins of society, which led to his personal collapse.
Loraine James's product, therefore, carries a personal and political notation. Above all, it's a reimagining of his compositions in a contemporary space that actually embraces him.
Ken Mode - Unresponsive
These Canadians are a new name for me. In their second album "Null", they present a sophisticated eclecticism of hardcore and noise. The sonic skeleton cracks under the weight of experimental impulses of unvarnished riffs and computer-generated industrialism. The overarching theme revolves around the idea of a kind of cynical anxiety because according to Ken Mode, the world is inevitably sliding into the depths of hell and our tormented fate is more than deserved. Hm... judge for yourself...
ugh... there's a mess ... I need to change something ... this year ... maybe 😁
