Hmmm, I seemed to drop off the radar again there. Oh well. Don’t think it really matters. Here’s something I’ve been spinning a few times lately. Reminds me once again of a heavier Hammock blended with a splash of old Glass Vaults (before they got all hippie and new age haha). These guys released a new EP just recently called The Black Moon, and an album last year which is really quite great called Death Spells. Check them all out.
Here’s a new band for me, maybe for you too. Has a very familiar feel to the song, reminds me of a bit of that old school rock. Very decent opener for the new album Ebb and Flow. I dunno about you but I’m definitely gonna check out the full album.
Minora – The Void
Today’s band Atmospheres is from Belgium, and have a couple of albums under the belt. Reach is the only album of theirs that I’ve listened to, and I have to say I really enjoyed this album. It has some very interesting tracks, being a relatively diverse blend of ambient, instrumental and rock. I’m happy that it seems to live up to the bands name. Case in point this track, though for something a little different, also check out their track Time II afterwards.
Atmospheres – Evolve
I don’t really know this band that well, I’ve listened to an album of theirs once before and found a couple of tracks that I dug, but it seemed like a bit of a pick and mix band. Well in the last little while, they’ve dropped two tracks, both of which I’ve enjoyed. So here is one of those. Of Note: I find the rising inflection at the end of sentences to be surprisingly satisfying, keeps my attention I guess. I also like the electronic touch and that gradual build and punch which comes later in the song, reminds me a bit of ol Chester Bennington. This is:
Fight The Fade – Everything Is Fine?
While I personally can’t stand the comments of youtube videos, I also have some morbid fascination with reading some of the bile that people put on there. Can’t help myself apparently. It’s not often that I find a comment in youtube that makes me laugh, but the one on this song I found quite entertaining.
~Band starts playing~ “I wish that everyone I knew was dead” ~Band stops playing and gives him dirty looks~
I just like that. Great opening line for a song too =) total class.
Highly Suspect – Serotonia
Here’s an epic tune from a rather crazy sounding band from Greece, Green Yeti. They’ve recently released a 4 track album but don’t go expecting a quick listen. The whole album still clocks in at a bit over an hour, which is pretty good going. In the vein of Psychedelic Stoner Doom Rock apparently. Sounds fun. This is the opening track.
Green Yeti – The Yeti Has Landed
New Radiohead! Wooooooo. Nuff Said.
Radiohead – Burn The Witch
Having been thrashing this song for most of the day it seemed rude not to put it up here. I have a sneaking suspicion that I’m gonna hammer this song to death and then never want to hear it again, but I can’t stop myself darn it! Curse my inability to not binge music! I’ve been patiently waiting for a new album from these guys since Phoenix came out back in 2013, now we finally get an EP (Laid Low), which is great, but about 5 songs too short. Some nice Alternative Rock to shake up your Tuesday.
Everything In Slow Motion – Bad Season
I must say I like the term gloom as a contender for a new genre, although I’m not sure that this song is quite gloomy enough for me to fall under that category, despite what the band says. Garage rock on the other hand seems pretty apt. Reminds me a bit of Earlimart and some very obscure old songs by Ash (of all bands). And hey, there’s like, ships, and seas, and grey skies on the album cover. That’s cool right?
Tombstones In Their Eyes – My Head Is Fighting Me
Friday! Get your rock and roll on with some blues from the Netherlands.
DeWolff – Sugar Moon
