El grup de trap de Sabadell Flashy Ice Cream acaba de publicar la cançó ‘Llàgrimes de sang’, dedicada a les protestes juvenils per la sentència contra el procés i especialment als aldarulls sorgits arran de la violència policíaca. Resumeix l’esperit de molts dels qui han sortit al carrer arreu del país aquesta darrera setmana.
Flashy Ice Cream, a Catalan trap band have just shared `Tears of Blood’ during the riots occured in Catalonia against the violent police sent by Spain. These riots have been lead by students and young people fed up of the repression of Spain over Catalonia.
Chromatics has released a brand new album, Closer to Grey. . Now they have shared a video for the album’s “You’re No Good.” The band’s Johnny Jewel directed the video, which features lots of multiple exposure images and befits the band’s general aesthetic well. Watch it below.
Lazarus Kane, the latest musical alchemist to bend the scope of genres to create a truly eclectic sound. His debut single Narcissus, the first taste of an artist signed to the Speedy Wunderground label, the people responsible for bringing us the likes of Squid, Black Midi and Black Country, New Road. The key themes between the artists being a focus on ground-breaking, unconventional and at times downright weird music.
“Narcissus” is a wonderfully disco-drenched number with the soulful cocksure vibe of Prince, but hemmed beautifully with a Primal Scream edge. There’s a wonderful magnetic intimacy from Lazarus Kane that ropes you in but somehow keeps you at arm’s length for the track’s duration.
“Boy Band” is one of the most danceable and funk songs that will be part of the upcoming new album of Manel. The Catalans will release their new album ‘Per la bona gent’ on October 4th.
Perfume Genius has shared bold new nine minute composition ‘Eye In The Wall’. The songwriter – real name Mike Hadreas – is currently working on a new music and dance project, crafted in collaboration with choreographer Kate Wallich and dance company the YC. The Sun Still Burns Here will debut in Seattle on October 4th, before hitting New York, Minneapolis, and Boston.
New single ‘Eye In The Wall’ is online now, and it’s taken from the project; a rhythmic, nine minute long blast of new music, it transports Perfume Genius into a fresh space.
London-based singer Gia Ford has been announced as the new signing from tastemaking label Dirty Hit, who will release her debut tape Poster Boy in October. Ahead of that we have the debut single and video ‘Turbo Dreams’ which combines classic pop sounds of thudding beats and resounding piano chords to effective results.
Whilst previous single ‘Bad Blood’ aims for Talking Heads, ‘Teeth’ makes you look silly by destroying all previous conceptions of what you thought Working Men’s Club would be musically; but they help you dance away the smirks regardless.
A lazy review would associate ‘Teeth’ with LCD Soundsystem, however instead there’s more of a Post-punk Kraftwerk at play – coupled with a very prominent Mark E Smith esque vocal – that doesn’t so much invite you to the dancefloor as much as putting a stopper in your dancing shoes.
In short this is perfect evolution for WMC with its obnoxious synths that build throughout before detonating into an indie fuelled samba jam that gets more and more incessant as the track draws on.
