Hello music lovers! 🎵🎧🎤🎵
Last week, not everything went as planned. I was pressed for time and didn't manage to post the #newtunes selection.
I could have done it another day but since my intention is to recommend music for the weekend I preferred to wait. But I have accumulated some even better songs and tunes from known and unknown artists.
Just because I didn't post an update doesn't mean I didn't have the tunes in my head. Of course, they did. Music4Life!
As usual, if you don't like something you can skip it :) 😁
Kendrick Lamar - The Heart Part 5
One of the most well-known rappers has tackled transformations with the help of AI and deepfake technologies in a new song (audio and video).
In the song, he transforms himself, sonically and visually, taking on the voice of O.J. Simpson, Kanye West, Will Smith, and others. He illustrated how this technology (which has a negative connotation) can be used creatively by the artist to destabilize the concept of identity.
Let's face it, the song is great!
Joan Jett & The Blackhearts - Bad Reputation - Acoustic
The rock legend Joan Jett has been doing exactly the same things for almost 50 years, and with the new album 'Changeup' it doesn't look like it's going to change at all. It's an interesting album, including acoustic covers of some of her hits.
This one, Bad Reputation, is from 1983. Way to go Joan!
Sunflower Bean - Headful of Sugar
The New York indie-rock trio has always been described by music critics as a 'fashion band' and their new album 'Headful Of Sugar' is no different.
They have their own identity and are always in the mainstream, the embodiment of what's hot on the pop side at the moment and what's not.
My Chemical Romance - The Foundations of Decay
After two years of reuniting, they are touring with new material.
'The Fundations of Decay' is the new My Chemical Romance album after eight years. I recommend it for fans, of which there are many, considering how fast they are climbing the charts and YT views.
Lyle Lovett - 12th of June
Texas singer, songwriter, and actor Lyle Lovett has released a new album, '12th Of June', after 10 years. Known for his unconventional fusion of genres such as jazz, country, swing, and gospel, he has redefined American music with his 14 albums.
Four Grammys and a Trailblazer Award (Americana Music Association) are not out of the question. He is a resident of the Texas Songwriters' House.
Kikagaku Moyo - Cardboard Pile
The fifth and supposedly last album by this psychedelic Japanese band. They started their musical career ten years ago and there has been no particular success either with listeners or critics. Well, they weren't too bothered by that, they just played and played. After a few years (2014) they recorded 'Forest Of Lost Children' for the American label Beyond Records in New York and got a lot of attention. Since then they have toured regularly in the US and Europe and have a cult status.
It's a real loss if 'Kumoyo Island' will be their last album as they announced. Definitely recommended.
SEINE - Riječ
Croatian trio the Seine, with their third album 'Naizust', is entering new musical waters. The first album was indie-punk, the second hip-hop, but this time the trio from Zagreb throws away their guitars and starts mixing their new mystical trip pop cocktail with a computer. The electronic backing tracks are quite minimalistic but filled with vocals they sound very good. 'Riječ' in English means 'Word'. They are one of the most promising bands in the ex-YU region.
Damo Suzuki & Spiritczualic Enhancement Center - Arkaoda
Kenji "Damo" Suzuki is a former member of the cult krautrock band CAN from Germany. He left Japan as a teenager to make a living as a street musician in European cities.
With CAN he recorded their most acclaimed albums 'Tago Mago', 'Ege Bamyasi' and 'Future Days', which are now considered by the music critics to hugely influence genre-busters.
More recently, last few years, he has collaborated with the rock band Black Midi and the Israeli band Spiritczualic Enhancement Center.
Krautrock and psychedelic can be compared to the old excesses of the 70s. Recommended.
ugh... there's mess ... I need to change something ... this year ... maybe 😁
... anyway, if you're courious just check the dates and listen to songs ...
