Hello music lovers! 🎵🎧🎵
Here we are again. A selection of #newtunes tunes and sounds that can, if you want, brighten up whatever you do during the weekend. You know, music is, in a way, healing. :)
Some well-known musicians, some (still) unknown, but all of them trying to resonate in our ears.
These tunes have stayed with me this week, and maybe some of them will be for you too if you can spare a few minutes of your time, of course.
Nothing is mandatory, if you don't like something you can skip it, because we're in the best decentralized social network at the moment, where there's a lot of exciting content.
But, again, music heals, you should know that. 😎
Sleater-Kinney - Turn It On
Sleater-Kinney, from Olimpia, USA is known for its feminist and liberal politics and is a part of the riot grrrl movement. Regardless of politics, they are firmly rooted in the indie scene. Their latest album "Dig Me In: A Dig Me Out Covers Album" is a reaffirmation of this, full of covers. 25% of the net proceeds from the album go to SMYRC (Sexual & Gender Minority Resource Center).
And this piece "Turn It On", Margo Price cover is a nice tune.
Iggy Pop - Frenzy
Iggy Pop, the godfather of punk is back! The Grammy® Award winner for the 2021 Lifetime Achievement is widely recognized as one of the most influential artists and the most dynamic live performers of all time. Iggy Pop is a singer, songwriter, musician, author, producer, DJ, and actor whose epic oeuvre has garnered worldwide critical acclaim and a cult of fanatical fans.
Starting his career in 1967 with The Stooges, Iggy connected the original rock, blues, and free jazz into something completely dangerous and new, silenced Punk, Post-Punk, Hard Rock, and grunge. His significant solo career - which began with the album "The Idiot" and "Lust for Life" from 1977 in production by David Bowie - led to pass through an amazing range of music genres, inspiring a generation for a generation of musicians with his uncompromising style performances and unique charisma.
To record the single "Frenzy" Iggy was joined by a rock superstar team. The producer Andrew Watt on guitar, the drums were played by Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), and the bass shares Duff McKagan (Guns N 'Roses).
I am happy to move forward. And this piece is just perfect!
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Shoot Me A Smile
RHCP has long been aware that its original musical essence is something that needs to be preserved, nurtured, occasionally ventilated, and shaped, in order to remain interesting for many generations.
There was a time when the powerful, almost nihilistic punk energy, literally stripped to the core, was transmitted to the audience.
Today, their concerts have a recognizable quality, generated over the years, so they seem to be musicians who feel good playing dressed appropriately for their years of life and experience. The latest album "Return of the Dream Canteen" is one of their best.
Loshh - k
A new name for me, Nigerian-born and London-based musician Losh Ajeh released his second EP "Akọle". Here he experiments with a mix of Afrobeat, groove, and electronica, focusing more on his personal musical development and less on economic exploitation and police violence in England than on his first EP.
We can expect some interesting tunes from him in the future it seems to me.
Julia Jacklin - I Was Neon
"Pre Pleasure" is the third studio album by Australian musician Julie Jacklin. She is slowly but steadily opening up to a global audience and is likely to make her transatlantic breakthrough with this album. In 2019, she was nominated for awards in Australia in several categories, including Best Female Musician and Songwriter.
In this album, she explores the difference between her new self-image and the fears and anxieties that haunt her from the past. Or, rather, between the imaginary world and real life. She doesn't deal with this in a childish or teenage way, but there is a sense of transition into a more mature person in the lyrics. In "I Was Neon" he deals with everything that used to be and the present, where he asks himself "Am I gonna lose myself again?".
Well, we don't know, but I am sure that many doors will open for her.
Alter Bridge - Sin After Sin
American rockers Alter Bridge have released a new album "Paws & Kings". Upon its release, the album reached #1 on the UK Rock and Metal Albums chart, and topped the Billboard Hard Rock Albums chart, as well as the Rock and Indie Albums charts in Australia, Austria, and Germany.
Metal Planet Music says it's a powerful album with no weak points and infectious riffs and vocals. Sonic Perspectives describes the band as the cream of the modern rock scene's distorted sonic wizardry, says the band does everything to perfection, and Louder Sound praises them for consistently writing colossal rock anthems like "Sin After Sin". Classic metal rock, if someone asks me my opinion. Fans are happy for sure.
Taylor Swift - Vigilante Shit
Taylor Swift breaks all records! The latest album "Midnights", is her ninth consecutive album no.1 in the United Kingdom. At the same time, according to Official Charts Company, it's the fastest sales album in 2022, which has destroyed the record so far.
What do I know, she certainly gives something to millions of fans.
Holly Humberstone - Can You Afford To Lose Me?
A new name for me. Music critics say she is very talented. The 22-year-old singer-songwriter who comes from Grantham, England, presented herself to the audience back in 2017 at the BBC introducing, a radio platform that promotes young British hopes.
She published her debut single "Deep End" in January 2020. Two months later she published her first hit "Falling Asleep at the Wheel", which currently has more than two million views on YouTube. She describes her music as dark, insecure, electric pop, and fans often compare her to Lord. We'll see how far it goes.
ugh... there's a mess ... I need to change something ... this year ... maybe 😁
