Hello music lovers! 🎵🎧🎵
What new tunes are you listening to these days? Many people say there's no good music anymore, but I'm afraid I have to disagree. Of course, there is, you just have to find it in this massive cloud of music, tones, and sounds that surround us and assault us every day.
This #newtunes is my pick for the weekend.
What about your selection? Be brave, I'd love some suggestions in the comments, but it has to be something new, at least from this year, it can be a well-known or less well-known artist.
Rewards to follow of course :) 😁
Sam Fender - Wild Grey Ocean
Sam Fender is considered one of Britain's best songwriters, with two BRIT and two NME awards. This song was written during the recording of the album "Seventeen Going Under" last autumn and will be included in the new deluxe version of the album. For me, it's more new than not.
He reminds me a little bit, of the music and the lyrics, of the poetry of Bruce Springsteen. Of course, that's just my flash.
Fucked Up - One Day
Canadian hardcore punk band will release a new album "One day" early next year. With the announcement came this music video for the song.
Having followed them since the beginning, I don't see any particular change in their musical output. They stick to the genre they know. Well, yeah, maybe they're a nuance softer, you know, the years make every rocker different...
Porcupine Tree - Herd Culling
The British musicians' Porcupine Tree is an unusual mix of esoteric, acoustically progressive, and psychedelically experimental melodies. They can be said to be "one of the most important bands you've never heard of".
This song is from their latest album "Closure/Continuation", released in July, and, like all the others, it sounds very good. Outstanding production, a great soundscape of the progressive genre. They are definitely masters of the instruments. Highly recommended.
Algiers- Irreversible Damage (ft. Zack De La Rocha)
The American-English post-punk band announced their new album, their fourth in a row, "Shook", and a collaboration with Zack de la Rocha (Rage Against The Machine). They caught the attention of critics (and the public) right from the start by experimenting and mixing post-punk and gospel. In the last few years, they have collaborated a lot with other musicians of different genres. Also toured as a support act for Interpol or Depeche Mode. Judging by this song (I recommend it), the new album is going to be quite exciting.
Dry Cleaning - Stumpwork
Dry Cleaning, from South London, has released their second studio album "Stumpwork". Their previous, or debut, album "New Long Leg" topped the world album charts last year. So, of course, expectations were high. Listening to the new, you will feel the greater boldness - the vocals tightly wrapping around dexterous and intricate riffs, the perfect web of instrumental texture, and the willingness to abstract perfectly. It's an intoxicating blend that's totally Dry Cleaning - so different from the production style of their contemporaries.
††† (Crosses) - Vivien
The Crosses (†††) will release a new EP "Permanent. Radiant", after a decade, in December this year. The band is not new, they start in 2011, maybe the best known is the singer Chino Moreno a member of Deftones.
This single, "Vivien", is a pleasant surprise for me, the music is modern, punchy, and better than their previous works if you ask me. I can't wait to hear the rest, and I recommend this one.
OFF! - Kill To Be Heard
I thought OFF! had disappeared as a hardcore punk project and joined the graveyard of many similar bands, but I was wrong. The band's comeback with "Free LSD", their first release since 2014, is a turn for the better.
Classic anti-establishment punk is a more than suitable mold for exploring the more and less bizarre conspiracy theories that evolve on the album from warnings against government experimentation to quite paranoid fiction about aliens. Thus, from the usual frustrations about life under the boot of social repression, the music also leads us to Hitler's UFOs and the Fourth Reich that supposedly awaits on the horizon of the United States.
Of course, all this fiction should be listened to with a touch of humor.
The Bobby Lees - Ma Likes to Drink
Bobby Lees' latest album "Bellevue" is named after the psychiatric hospital near the band's head Sam Quartin lived for many years. The musician herself struggled with schizophrenia for a while (I'm not sure schizophrenia is curable but OK). During one of the sessions she felt possessed by a ghost named Bobby Lee, and that's how the band got its name.
The music is somewhat distorted, even if the guitar melodies are quite classic rock. The shorter sections in the bass line and keyboards hint at a mental breakdown, accompanied throughout by the tasteful screeching of electric guitar and drums. Sobriety, clarity, and mental integrity are less and less, but we feel a sense of dread, disgust, and a kind of hyperactive madness.
As therapy, however, this music is hopefully useful.
ugh... there's a mess ... I need to change something ... this year ... maybe 😁
