Pearz

Hailing from Florence, an Italian hotbed of poetry and arts, Pearz is the musical moniker of multi-instrumentalist Francesco Perini. Having cut his teeth as a former member of The Hacienda and as session musician for the likes of Tess Parks and M!R!M, the London-based artist’s solo endeavours stem from “years of erratic and sleepless music nights”.

Following 2020’s Nocturnal EP, new single ‘Social Amnesia’ is a disillusioned dance track that draws from a melting-pot of influences. Nodding to Italian soundtracks, elements of nu jazz and nostalgic hip-hop beats, the largely instrumental composition glistens with enthusiasm and a love for making music. Layering synthesized strings atop of a groovy bass line, reminiscent of Liquid Liquid’s famously sampled banger ‘Cavern’, the infectious rhythm section wouldn’t sound out of place on Primal Scream’s seminal Screamadelica. Continually elevating across its 4-minute duration, gritty guitars add a satisfying sense of dirt to the well-produced piece before giving way to a disorientating piano outro.

BABY COOL

Marrying psychedelia with folk and a touch of country, Baby Cool is the latest side project by Nice Biscuit co-front woman Grace Cuell. “The songs are deeply sentimental. I have a lot I need to sing about to help me make sense of this earthly pod I have been gifted. If in singing these words out loud, I can help others find solace in knowing that we’re all out here flailing about in the cosmos, then it feels good to me.” – Cuell

Earlier this year, Baby Cool hit the road with the Babe Rainbow, performing on the renowned stages of the Princess Theatre (Brisbane) and the Metro Theatre (Sydney). With Cool’s live band composed of members from Nice Biscuit, The Flamingo Jones and Cigarny Weaver, it is no surprise these shows were met with rave reviews. Baby Cool is set to release music later this year via Virgin Music Australia, Greenway Records (US) and Bad Vibes (UK).

Th’ Losin Streaks

Th’ Losin Streaks story began in 2003, and things happened quickly: their debut record, “Sounds of Violence,” was released in 2004, followed by tours of Europe and the US, and invitations to open for legendary acts like The Zombies. The band and the record collected kudos and built a wide-ranging fanbase that includes The Dead Kennedys’ Jello Biafra and E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt, who proclaimed the group’s “Your Love, Now” as “The Coolest Song in the World (this week)” in his Billboard column and sent the tune into heavy rotation on Sirius’ Underground Garage radio station.

In 2011, the group went on hiatus, returning to the stage in 2017 following an invitation to open for Iggy Pop at the Burger Boogaloo festival.

KOKO

Costanza Delle Rose is know for being on the scene with Be Forest, band in which she writes lyrics, sings and plays bass, and with which she toured extensively from the US and Mexico, to all of Europe and Russia. After moving to London during a year of immense changes in her life, Costanza found fertile ground to bring to life her new project, KOKO, a deeply reflective expression of her most sincere self, with no artifacts or filters to protect her. KOKO is Costanza’s soul out in the open, brave enough to experiment with sound and new lyrical approaches, and free to be fragile and vulnerable to her feelings. After posting an unannounced video for the song “I Want to Be” in the spring of 2021, KOKO is now debuting with a 7 track album by the metaphorically on-point title “Shedding Skin”, to be released on October 17, 2021.

ANGEL NATION

ANGEL NATION, the melodic metal band founded by the classically trained Finnish singer Elina Siirala (also in Leaves’ Eyes) released their new album “Antares” on CD and exclusive vinyl on April 8th via Inner Wound Recordings.

Their debut album (released under the name EnkeliNation) “Tears of Lust” was received with glowing reviews all over the world and their second release “Aeon” took a step forward in the musical diversity. Since the start, Angel Nation have played shows around Europe and performed at festivals like Bloodstock Open Air, Lankafest and Brainstorm Festival.

The greatly anticipated third album takes Angel Nation to a new level! Named after the star “Antares”, the brightest object in the constellation of Scorpius, it takes the listener on a journey of multiple elements, through an album full of energy and fire with the true sound of a metal band! “Antares” combines catchy melodies, stadium rock and powerful metal tunes together with a flavor of modern synths, while maintaining the depth, both musically and lyrically.

Inspired by a concept of an army of angels (Seraphim), the often cryptic texts intertwine with true life stories, leaving room for the listener’s own interpretation.

De sound van Zuster Zonnebloem is old-school en karakteristiek maar toch vernieuwend en divers. Het ene moment kwetsbaar, dromerig en kraakhelder, het andere ruig, rauw en losgeslagen. Met ijzer sterke lyrics, eerlijk maar hoopvol, met als doel de wereld een stukje zonniger te maken.

LUCY KRUGER & THE LOST BOYS

To encounter Lucy Kruger’s music is to witness a singular journey of constant reflection that is producing an ever-widening arc of creativity. April 2022 sees the release of Teen Tapes (for performing your own stunts) a culmination of the Tapes Trilogy. In June 2021, the Berlin-based South African artist released the third Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys album, ‘Transit Tapes’ (for women who move furniture around), which serves as a follow up to her 2019 release, ‘Sleeping Tapes for Some Girls’.

Since first embarking on the very specific process of recording music – with an early album that she recorded soon after finishing her arts degree in the Eastern Cape town of Grahamstown – Kruger has approached her artistry with the care of an archaeologist seeking all the interwoven elements that make up the historical whole.

Whether the now finite suite of albums with André Leo as Medicine Boy (More Knives, 2014; Kinda Like Electricity, 2016; Lower, 2018; Take Me With You When You Disappear, 2020), or her solo work, Kruger has engaged in a slow, steady exploration of what it takes to make music that’s universal, that endures, that draws listeners in, even after countless listens.

“I think that what I am able to offer as an artist is a detailed expression of my experience, for although the situation may feel unique to me, the feelings are universal,” says Kruger. “Giving them a sound and shape validates and creates space for those feelings, allowing listeners to feel seen and less alone, even at a distance. Even in the isolation of a bedroom. Especially in the isolation of a bedroom.”

THE SOUND UNDERCOVER

“WINNING TOUR 2022”
A TRIBUTE TO ‘THE SOUND’

THE SOUND

Het is inmiddels 25 jaar geleden dat de legendarische Londense Post-Punk formatie The Sound werd ontbonden. Begin jaren tachtig nog beschouwd als de beste Post-Punk band van het moment werden ze op commercieel gebied links en rechts ingehaald door bands als U2, The Cure en labelgenoot Echo & The Bunnyman. De band, die zich principieel en compromisloos opstelde raakte langzaam in de vergetelheid en zanger Adrian Borland, die leed aan zware depressies en een schizofrene stoornis pleegde in 1999 uiteindelijk zelfmoord. De muziek van The Sound past naadloos in de huidige roerige tijd en verdient het om opnieuw een groot publiek te bereiken (in Nederland verkocht The Sound grif de zalen uit). Zeker wanneer je bedenkt dat The Edge van U2 zwaar beïnvloed was door het gitaarspel van Adrian Borland en er geen band is die onversneden melancholie en (post)punk-energie zo raak samenbracht als The Sound. Een ware must voor liefhebbers van de New Wave uit begin jaren tachtig!

THE SOUND UNDERCOVER
Voor velen is The Sound nog altijd dé nummer 1 (naast Joy Division) van de jaren tachtig. Dit geldt zeker ook voor zanger Erny Green (oa zanger in Joy Division Undercover) die een grote wens in vervulling ziet gaan met de aankomende tribute tour. Samen met de andere leden van Joy Division Undercover (gitarist Henk Koorn wordt vervangen door Rempe Kooij) zal hij een uitgebreide set spelen met nummers van de eerste drie albums (Jeopardy, From The Lions Mouth en All Fall Down). Denk bijvoorbeeld aan de Post Punk anthems ‘Missiles’ en ‘Winning’, waarbij de eerste het lijflied werd van een hele generatie die zich destijds verzette tegen de opkomst van kernwapens. De band bestaat naast zanger Erny Green uit Rempe Kooij (gitaar), Thijs Heij (Keyboards), Edwin Oranje (Bas) en Gerald Roerdinkveldboom (Drums).

This project is an amalgamation of familiar faces of the Atlanta music scene laced with additional imported reinforcement. These humans have mutated into this trio after playing with bands for years. Now with extreme new flavor. Inquire within. We use samplers and analog synths mashed with live instrumentation to pull influences from all things psychedelic. The result is what you make it.

The Spyrals

Armed with a guitar, harmonica and fuzz pedal, band-leader Jeff Lewis formed The Spyrals when he was living in San Francisco in the early 2010s. Now, though, he’s based in Los Angeles and finds himself backed by a new line-up of musicians. ‘Same Old Line’ was cooked up in new drummer Dash’s garage and recorded over the course of a few days and nights straight to a Tascam tape machine. Jeff recalls: “This is the first album recorded with a new lineup after I moved from San Francisco to Los Angeles. At the time of recording we werenʼt sure if this would be a Spyrals album or something under a different name. At some point during the mixing process I decided to keep moving on under the Spyrals name, so to me this album is a real turning point in the band’s history.” The result is a record that’s just as rooted in the sounds of Nashville and the Mississippi Delta as it is the band’s West Coast garage-rock forebears.

“Same Old Line is a great addition to the blues canon and sits well up against some of the great records of the genre, both by the past masters and their modern acolytes” – Louder Than War

In 2020, Black Doldrums collaborated with electronic duo ‘TVL’s Jared Artaud, producing their debut album with grammy award winner Ted Young. In early 2021 Black Doldrums recruited Matthew Holt on bass guitar. In March the same year, Black Doldrums signed to psych/post-punk giant Fuzz Club Records who released the band’s debut album ‘Dead Awake’ on 11th March 2022.

Dominated by supple melodies and dreamlike timbres, all songs have been written and recorded pretty much by Felipe himself, mixed by fellow Wannabe Jalva Tiago Abrahão and mastered by Brian Lucey (The Black Keys, Chet Faker). Recently, Tagua Tagua toured throught Europe and made a couple of shows at SXSW. The artist is also finishing his new album, that may be released late this year.

Church of the Cosmic Skull

Church of the Cosmic Skull are not only one of the most exciting rock bands in the world today, but also an ever-growing spiritual organization, spreading the light of the Cosmic Rainbow across this planet and beyond. The Church release their third studio album ‘Everybody’s Going To Die’ in November 2019 on limited edition heavyweight vinyl, CD edition cassette via their own label Septaphonic Records. The Nottingham based ‘spiritual organisation’ continue to astonish listeners and festival audiences across Europe with their unique blend of prog, psych, rock, and ‘Occult Pop’. Since their 2016 debut ‘Is Satan Real?’, electric viola, piano and Rhodes have been introduced alongside the Hammond organ and six-part vocal harmonies, resulting in a sound that truly ‘puts the ABBA in Sabbath’. The decision to remain independent is a reflection of both the changing landscape of the music industry, and the Church’s wholeheartedly DIY approach, having turned down major label offers in favour of starting Septaphonic Records and their own live events company, Cyclopean Productions. Quoting one of the ‘7 Objects’, Church founder Brother Bill Fisher describes this as a chance to ‘Celebrate and uphold the freedom of art, science and thought.’

2020 will see the Church tour the UK and further afield, continue their ‘Tele-Vision’ output with mind-blowing new music videos, and invite all living beings to join the Cosmic Family on the ‘Psychic Ascension to Humanity’ via their internet web-portal: cosmicskull.org

The Vacant Lots

Brooklyn, NY post-punk duo The Vacant Lots released their third album ‘Interzone’ in the summer of 2020 on London indie label Fuzz Club. Following its release and quick sell-out, the record received high praise from the likes of Iggy Pop, BBC6, Henry Rollins, Loud & Quiet, Uncut, BrooklynVegan, Line of Best Fit and countless others. ‘Interzone’ is a genre-blending synthesis of dance and psych that’s made for secluded listeners and all-night partygoers. The band’s consistently striking visual aesthetic is on mind-bending display on the artwork for ‘Interzone’, which also included in the second pressing, an exclusive 7” featuring a remix of ‘Into The Depths’ by darkwave trailblazer Cold Cave.

Uninhibited by the limitations of two people and continuing their mission of “minimal means maximum effect,” The Vacant Lots’ Jared Artaud and Brian MacFadyen create an industrial amalgam of icy electronics and cold beats with detached vocals and hard-hitting guitars. The Vacant Lots have released singles with Mexican Summer and Reverberation Appreciation Society, collaborated on their debut album ‘Departure’ with Spacemen 3’s Sonic Boom, their second album ‘Endless Night’ with Alan Vega, and most recently on their two EPs, ‘Berlin’ and ‘Exit’ and its companion compilation ‘Damage Control’ with Brian Jonestown Massacre’s Anton Newcombe at his studio in Berlin.

ERRORR

Errorr was started by Leonard Kaage, who took the opportunity to start creating on a blank canvas with his own instrumentation, production and arrangement in 2019.The first demos were developed in his studio, whenever he found time between recording jobs and tours in Europe, Asia and the US. After a few months the characteristic sound of Errorr found its shape: Loud guitars and fuzz bass supported by catchy drum beats. Leonard’s soft voice cuts through the mighty ‘Wall of Sound’ and transforms beautiful ‘noise’ into pop.

The Swedish multi-instrumentalist is also known as the producer and guitar player of The Underground youth and has worked with numerous other bands like The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Holy Motors, Kristof Hahn (SWANS), Tracy Bryant, Tess Parks, The Blue Angel Lounge and many more.

With Nick Mangione (Perilymph) and Andre Leo (Medicine Boy, Wombed) joining him on Bass and Guitar, the band has now developed into a 4-piece which incorporates a wide range of rock genres including noise-, post-punk and shoegaze elements and is inspired by a lot of great rock bands of the early 90s. Avant-Garde bands like Sonic Youth, Pixies and Nirvana are seen as pioneers in their raw and honest interpretation of rock’n’roll and punk rock.

KASPAR BAUM

KASPAR BAUM is the Utrecht based Alternative rock / Post Punk band around singer- songwriter Erny Green (who has already released ten original albums over the past decades and in recent years also stood out as vocalist in world’s best Joy Division tribute band “Joy Division Undercover”). The band’s debut album Vuurland was released on December 10, 2021. On the record many influences can be heard in a range from Eighties bands such as Joy Division, The Smith and The Cure, through Nineties bands as Wilco and Radiohead to more contemporary bands in the likes of Editors, Arcade Fire and War On Drugs. Even Bob Dylan is not lacking as a reference. Nevertheless, KASPAR BAUM does certainly have a unique sound of its own. Responsible for this sound, next to a strongly felt urgency is the homogeneous production of the album, which was entirely in the hands of Erny Green himself. Perhaps even more important are the tasteful contributions of the three other band members who provide the characteristic voice of Erny Green with whatever it needs in each particular song. We could say that ‘Vuurland’ is an album that has some timeless ‘classics’ abord. No one can ignore KASPAR BAUM as soon as the debut album Vuurland has seen the light. So far we know already.

Nick cave tribute

Approved by Nick Cave Himself

Drie videoclips van de band waren te zien op Nick’s eigen YouTubekanaal BadSeedTeeVee

Wie de naam Nick Cave hoort denkt aan The Bad Seeds, aan de Netflix hitserie Peaky Blinders met zijn intro-song Red Right Hand of aan songs als Into My Arms. En, misschien met gemengde gevoelens, ook aan Kylie Minogue en hun hit samen; Where The Wild Roses Grow.
De gast die een bijna ongenaakbaar leven leidde rond sex, drugs en rock ‘n’ roll kennen we tegenwoordig als sympathieke en innemende man waar je geen genoeg van kunt krijgen. De Nick Cave Tribute band weet als geen ander eenzelfde dynamiek te brengen zoals alleen the man himself dat kan. Theatraal en vol overgave zal deze spiksplinternieuwe formatie in anderhalf uur een ruime variatie aan nummers brengen. Denk aan songs als Mercy Seat, Ship Song, Deanna, The Good Son, Straight To You  en Push The Sky Away.

Awash maakt melodische gitaarpop met accenten van piano en fretloze bas. Boeiend in zowel het klein als het groot, lyrisch, breekbaar en vol overgave, met vergelijkingen naar o.a R.E.M, Editors, Racoon.

Meer dan 250 optredens, waaronder voorprogramma van James Walsh van Starsailor, diverse radio-optredens (Nachtegiel en Ekdom In De Nacht bij 3FM), festivals nationaal/internationaal en een toer door Engeland.

Hun gedrevenheid brengt Awash op steeds mooiere plekken. Na het goed ontvangen debuutalbum ‘Turn The Lights’ (2013) en de EP ‘Carry On’ (2015) is nu het tweede album ‘Waiting Words’ een feit. Opnames zo divers als het leven zelf. Autobiografisch maar soms vanuit een ander perspectief beschreven. Waar het vorige album ‘Turn the lights’ een reis naar geluk was, is dit album een greep uit de dagelijkse realiteit.

“Het lange wachten op een opvolger voor hun debuutplaat was meer dan de moeite waard, zeker als je bedenkt wat het kwaliteitsniveau is van de negen liedjes op “Waiting Words” (www.rootstime.be)

“Met de geweldige stem van Geert van der Burg die overtuigend doet denken aan bijvoorbeeld een Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam) en aangevuld met nog een viertal zeer getalenteerde muzikanten” (3voor 12 ZH).

Pendejo

Heavy brass, brutal riffage, pounding drums, cojones, and Spanish urban lyrics that make you wonder “did they just say that?”. Yes they did. They go by the name of ¡PENDEJO!

“Taste it and you won’t be sorry.” (Metal Hammer)

¡PENDEJO! is a heavy rock band from the Netherlands, founded by two cousins with a history in Latin America. Digging into their latino roots they started blending heavy riffage, right-in-your-face lyrics in urban Spanish and to top it all off, a screaming trumpet.

Leaving their skid marks in the underground scene throughout Europe and Latin America – having shared stages with influential heavyweights like MONSTER MAGNET, FU MANCHU, KARMA TO BURN, MONDO GENERATOR an HELMET – the band puts on a show for anyone who is not afraid to be grabbed by the cojones and to be thrown into a spicy puddle of chili con carne. “Schwere, wuchtige Wüsten-Riffs” (Rock Hard)

In 2010 ¡PENDEJO! released it’s debut album ‘CANTOS A LA VIDA’. Their music has been described as heavy, addictive, rough and grooving, or as a Spanish critic so eloquently put it: “Heavy rock in Spanish with balls the size of Danny de Vito”.

“Smoke, alcohol, humor, sex and ah!, Rock n Roll!” (Max Metal) ¡PENDEJO! recorded it’s second album ‘ATACAMES’ (2014) with producer Pieter Kloos (Motorpsycho, Ween, Barkmarket, Dool). This resulted in a daring album containing 10 songs ranging from heavy to lighthearted, and from melodramatic to outright aggressive.

Kingfisher Sky

Together with singer Judith Rijnveld, Ivar de Graaf (ex-Within Temptation) explored a way to combine both their influences into songs that didn’t bound themselves to a specified genre or style. With influences like Porcupine Tree and Kate Bush, but also classical singers as Cecilia Bartoli and traditional Folk music in their mind they started recording songs in their home studio in 2005.

In May of 2007 Kingfisher Sky recorded their first album “Hallway of Dreams” produced by Jochem Jacobs (Textures) and Bouke Visser (Split Second Sound). This debut-album was released in October of 2007 by Suburban Records. Hallway of Dreams was received with great reviews and a successful head-line tour throughout the Netherlands followed. Little over a year later this rock solid debut album was released in The United States, Italy, the U.K., France, Japan and Germany.

On September the 18th 2010, Kingfisher Sky released their second album titled “Skin of the Earth”. Much like their first album “Hallway of Dreams”, “Skin of the Earth”” was received with raving reviews. After a successful crowdfunding campaign their third album Arms of Morpheus saw the light of day in October 2014.

RHONDA

Rhonda are back with a record that doesn’t give easy answers but asks questions. The new album “You Could Be Home Now” is an intimate, raw snapshot in which the unspoken and spun of the film music of Morricone or John Barry appears, while at the same time remaining stuck in the filth of punk and rock ‘n’ roll.

The band’s sound is carried by soul and human warmth, the songs are personal and close. They know of dusty streets, of strange shadows and familiar lights, they know sweetness and darkness at the same time. “You Could Be Home Now” is an honest record that says nothing that isn’t true, that doesn’t want to be what it isn’t, that doesn’t follow a plan, but was able to grow slowly and is what it is.

RESERVOIR DOGS

Eind 2011 vonden een aantal muzikanten elkaar in hun voorliefde voor Tarantino en diens muziekkeuze in de welbekende films. Begin 2012 was de band compleet en na een intensieve repetitieperiode werden enkele try-outs gedaan en volgde in oktober 2012 de premiere.

In 2021 bestaat Reservoir Dogs Band dus 10 jaar en dit willen ze vieren met alle fans. Met een vernieuwde show, met daarin ook een terugblik op 10 jaar RDB, zal de band van oktober 2021 t/m oktober 2022 gaan touren in Nederland, België en Duitsland.

EAU ROUGE

EAU ROUGE are what is a rare breed to find in 2021: a band.Not a project. Not an act. Not a collaboration. That is what makes their live-shows a visceral sensation and their ever-evolving sound as irresistible as it is unpretentious. Like with any real band, it’s hard to label their sound, as it is more than the simple equation of adding up the ingredients. But think a modern-day The Police that has taken some inspiration from the likes of Tame Impala, Arctic Monkeys and M83.

Over just a few years, EAU ROUGE have been picked up by several major brands, including Red Bull, Germany’s Next Top Model as well as several Netflix and TV shows. After playing support-tours for The Tamper Trap and Kakkmaddafakka, as well as Festival-Slots at SWSX and Lollapalooza Berlin, they independently booked their own successful headline-tour in 2019.

For 6 months, they’ve been working on their new opus “Avid Love”. And while their musical journeys have already taken them to places like Sweden and UK, Austin and L.A., then signing with French Label Riptide Records, they insisted on recording the new songs live in their rehearsal space at home. They had a vision for Magnus’ drum sound, and Jonas’ and Bo’s voices resonate together now, creating a perfect synergy. Only after that foundation was laid down, they went to the vibrant surroundings of Riverside Studios in Berlin to give their new work some polish and additional production.

During the last 6 months, the first singles have been released reaching more than 800 000 streams and 2 500 airplays in more than 12 countries.

BLACK BOTTLE RIOT

Black Bottle Riot is a true guitar band, the kind that’s becoming rare these days. Formed in 2008, Black Bottle Riot was quickly noted by fans and critics as a fresh wind in the Dutch and European rock scene.

With 2011’s debut album and ‘Soul in Exile’ (2013) and III: Indigo Blues (2015) on Suburban Records, the band played tons of national and international club and festival shows. From large stages such as Rockin’ Park, Zwarte Cross, Eurosonic/Noorderslag and Down The Rabbit Hole to juke joints, honky tonks and sweaty blues clubs. It’s an old fashioned band, in a good sense. Give these guys a stage, some amps and a crate of beer and they will set the place on fire.

Over the years the band shared the bill with Pearl Jam, The Black Keys, The War On Drugs, Black Stone Cherry, Rival Sons and Ryan Adams. Their ‘one minute of fame’ on national television show DWDD led to a support slot for ZZ Top. In reviews, rock magazines foresaw a band with no strict musical boundaries, whilst still staying true to itself. Magazine ‘Gitarist’ stated in 2014 that Black Bottle Riot ‘may be Europe’s best Southern Rock band’ – a claim that doesn’t quite fit this band’s dislike of superlatives and hypes, but it does say something about BBR’s aspiration to always aim for quality. Their fourth studio album ‘FIRE’ (2019) sounds like the band has come to its own. Songs are catchy yet intense, with lots of dynamics, twin guitar soli and harmony vocals. The perfect soundtrack for driving hours on end, either to get away from or to finally get to your loved ones.

BOHEMIAN BETYARS

As building a time machine is yet to seem impossible, with the power of sound, Davy Knobel and Eszter Anna Baumann were aiming to do it in their own way. During quarantine, they surrounded themselves with their favorite vinyls and concert tapes in their tiny apartment, which resulted in writing their own tracks, inspired by their great musical heroes. Light By The Sea’s full-length album entitled Only Death Makes Icons (2021) was released shortly afterwards.

As in The Netherlands, only for a few weeks it was possible to play club shows, Light By The Sea luckily had a chance of touring in October 2021, playing two full-house record release shows, and supported Vive la Fête on big clubstages.

As the goal is set regarding a more specific musical style, Light By The Sea are currently working on their new songs which will surely make the people move and get them into a trance, where even time travelling might be possible.

THE THIRD SOUND

Dealing in a hypnotic blend of neo-psychedelia, post-punk and new wave, The Third Sound is a Berlin-based band led by the Icelandic musician Hákon Aðalsteinsson, who is the guitarist in Brian Jonestown Massacre and formerly played in the cult rock’n’roll outfit Singapore Sling. A mainstay of the European psych underground in his own right, not just through his collaborations with the likes of Anton Newcombe and Tess Parks, The Third Sound has been Hakon’s primary solo endeavour since the release of his self-titled debut on Newcombe’s A Recordings a decade ago.

Arriving following 2018’s ‘All Tomorrow’s Shadows’ LP, ‘First Light’ marks an evolution into a brighter and at times uplifting sound. Marrying moments of light and dark, the result is The Third Sound’s most dynamic full-length to date. Talking about the album, Hakon said: “This album is definitely less gloomy than the previous one, although some ghosts from the past are lurking in the background.

We always try to make something new on each album and never make the same album over again, but this feels like an even bigger change than usual, especially regarding the mood. Something new is beginning although the past is not forgotten. I think the title, First Light, describes the overall feel of the record pretty well.” Opening track ‘Tidal Wave’ introduces the record perfectly with a shimmering piece of shoegaze-inflected psychedelia that sounds like a long-lost Creation Records classic just before the Es hit the scene: “It has a mix of programed and real drums which resulted in a more upbeat and groove-focussed approach and talks about something awakening. It sets the tone for the album I think.” ‘Your Love Is Evol’ appears to follow a similar path but soon breaks down into something more cacophonous: whilst the infectious bassline rumbles away beneath Doorsian organs, things soon dissolve into distorted wall-of-noise guitars.

DIRTY SOUND MAGNET

Style: Psych Rock, Blues Rock, Funk Rock, Experimental/Progressive
 
After over 300 shows all over Europe, two studio albums and a live album since 2017, Swiss vintage psych-rock power trio release new next album DSM-III (March 18, 2022 on Hummus Records).  
 
The Music – power, groove and emotion
The band’s DNA can be traced back to the ancestral ‘Golden Age of Rock’ (60s, 70s), but instead of copying past heroes, Dirty Sound Magnet worked hard on breaking new ground. The band’s approach has often been compared to Led Zeppelin for their groove, energy and instrumental virtuosity, to a more violent version of Pink Floyd and to the mysticism of The Doors. With the addition of modern psych influences (Tame Impala, King Gizzard and the Lizzard Wizard, …) and sarcastic lyrics grounded in today’s social turmoil, the DSM magic formula is complete.
 
Live, the band is known for its kinetic performances and strong stage presence. DSM’s dynamic range goes from all out power to moments of silence build into the music. The years of experience have taught the band to deliver solid shows night after night while leaving room for the unexpected to happen. Every show is a unique experience for the band and the crowd…

akua naru

Akua naru teams up with Brooklyn-based duo The Ruff Pack (Matthias Loescher, Stephan Kondert) on “the Black magnificent”. A titanic collaboration which places atthe fore akua naru’s classic political and poetic lyricism framed by The Ruff Pack’ssignature sonic bravado. A 7-track head nod call-to-action which dances along thespectrum from live hip hop to soul to trap to jazz to the not yet discovered.

“the Blackmagnificent” speaks to akua’s focus on the power and resilience, the magnificence ofBlackness in the midstof peril. An insistence on joy and persistence despite a worldcommitted to the opposite. These tracks offer the audience an audio journal, achronicling from recent motherhood and new life to mourning the senseless loss ofthose unfairly gunned down, from a demand for reparations to a need for radical actsof tenderness, joy, and interpersonal justice in a not yet post-pandemic world.

“theBlack magnificent” is more than an album or a listening moment, it’s an experience.

MOTHER'S CAKE

The forthcoming fifth album by the international phenomenon that is Mother’s Cake sees the psych-rock trio present itself in suitably appropriate fashion: sky high, far out yet still very much down to earth.

In preparation for over a year and recorded during a series of sleep-deprived three day sessions, the group concentrate on the essentials on the ten new songs that comprise ‘Cyberfunk!’, bundling their raw live energy into a dynamically dense release that sounds like vintage madness of the best possible kind and fits the moment in perfect fashion.

Despite what its title might suggest, ‘Cyberfunk!’ was created in a more or less classic manner, with the three musicians performing together in one room, just the way it should be, with a minimum of overdubs resulting in a genuine band sound that is almost distilled to its essence, with the voice of singer/guitarist Yves Krismer standing out even more than on the band’s previous recordings.

ABOUT THE BAND

TRICKLEBOLT

Conceive authentic raw guitar sounds, floating Hammond layers and psychedelics, along with the hooks – and looks of a Black Crowes. Float away on an Easy Rider road trip while Tricklebolt spits out a solid amount of decibels and whacks it all straight into your gut.

 Their resume includes (i.a.) supports for Golden Earring, DeWolff, Uriah Heep, Extreme and Navarone. After two full lengths, Tricklebolt put the troubled summer of 2020 to good use and recorded the Worlds first Drive-In Live album. Their new power move will see the light of day in 2021.

Heavy brass, brutal riffage, pounding drums, cojones, and Spanish urban lyrics that make you wonder “did they just say that?”. Yes they did. They go by the name of ¡PENDEJO!

“Taste it and you won’t be sorry.” (Metal Hammer)

¡PENDEJO! is a heavy rock band from the Netherlands, founded by two cousins with a history in Latin America. Digging into their latino roots they started blending heavy riffage, right-in-your-face lyrics in urban Spanish and to top it all off, a screaming trumpet.

Leaving their skid marks in the underground scene throughout Europe and Latin America – having shared stages with influential heavyweights like MONSTER MAGNET, FU MANCHU, KARMA TO BURN, MONDO GENERATOR an HELMET – the band puts on a show for anyone who is not afraid to be grabbed by the cojones and to be thrown into a spicy puddle of chili con carne. “Schwere, wuchtige Wüsten-Riffs” (Rock Hard)

In 2010 ¡PENDEJO! released it’s debut album ‘CANTOS A LA VIDA’. Their music has been described as heavy, addictive, rough and grooving, or as a Spanish critic so eloquently put it: “Heavy rock in Spanish with balls the size of Danny de Vito”.
