After two weeks in the Deep South USA I’m still reveling in the joys of spending two weeks with some awesome garage rock and country. Lots of country. Chris Janson’s “Buy Me A Boat” was played about 20000000000 times so I know all the lyrics and I decided to visit Nashville the same weekend as Taylor (of the Swift variety) so it’s nice to hear some proper riffs as I return.
Welcome to another Dinosaur Pile Up anthem that marks the release of Eleven Eleven on October 16th. Celebrating my clothes colour combo (but not dedicated to me in any way so far as I know), here’s “Red and Purple”
Completely wowed by the return – proper- of Wavves. King Of The Beach is such a wonderful garage scuzz album, with escapism moments alongside mild mosh fires. The first track is a real big tick for me…and luckily for you the first one you’ll hear on this epic 37minute aural journey.
Meet Banff. A Brissie singer-songwriter whose reflective indie will make for a global underground hit.
Ty Segall is back again. Not as Ty though; as new outfit GØGGS who are every bit as ‘rar’ and scuzz with that signature craziness that only a Segall can cook up.
Can’t recommend new The Dead Weather Dodge and Burn enough. The fact I heard it for the first time in Third Man Records in Nashville definitely hyped the experience up, but it doesn’t detract from the quality of the music and the great return from this medley of accustomed musicians.
New(ish) duo from Melbourne Audego offer a wonderfully constructed future R&B / electronica style. Just a few months into sharing this project publicly they’ve dropped “Side Effects”.
A little Swedish guilty pleasure has been found through Noonie Bao whose bouncy, ethnic dance track is
Vant are powering up the alt. rock scene in London like there’s no tomorrow. Some future rock kings I can really believe in.
Starting with a bit of guilty pleasure pop that I picked up online this week. Meet LA’s Runaway Saints who are a great export from the current scene with it’s identifiable sound and style.
Then there’s Coast Modern. A real gem in the mix this week with their undeniable West Coast spirit (not the FIDLAR surf fock type – more The Neighbourhood’s electro indie dreaminess).
Olga Bell has been introduced to me via One Little Indian records. Reminding me of the eerie vocals of Denali, but with the electro structure of a Thom Yorke solo project.
Lewis Del Mar has come out this week with a fantastic The Neighbourhood meets Glass Animals track that smooths over your ears whatever your situation.
These Londoners have reignited a love of slow-tempo indie melodies with their track “Stargazer”. Meet Island.
Dropping one of the sickest beats with future R&B and trap inspiration, this is Model 86. A stand out act in the indie electro sector.
Really enjoying a bit of urban vs. house from Goldlink this week too. Disclosure fans will love.
Beginning as a shoegazer number and rapidly building into that familiar post grunge outburst we love to hear from Tigercub…they’re back!
I was listening to this earlier in the week when it had about 60k listens. Just a few days later we’re over 2 million. That’s more like it! Big Will is back with a trap meets latino refix and it’s certainly not sounding back in my playlist: Bomba Estereo, Will Smith – “Fiesta”.
Early 00’s nostalgia fires up at the sound of the latest Boots track. This moody electro in “Bombs Away” is great for the nights that are closing in the northern hemisphere. Think How To Destroy Angels but not as dark.
