Music by Bergman: Bull

Formed in 2011 by vocalist and songwriter Tom Beer and lead guitarist Dan Lucas, they claim diverse influence from bands such as The Pixies, Yo La Tengo and Pavement.

Masters of joyous indie-rock, York four-piece Bull brought the summer sun to cold winter days with their debut album of festival-ready bops. Now they returned with heir new EP ‘Stuck between the Virtual and Physical World’ alongside sharing new track ‘Stuck!’.

Music by Bergman: Jack White

Jack White is not releasng one album. He’s releasing two. Fear Of The Dawn – which it has already been published- and Entering Heaven Alive will arrive this year, and the first singles have blown our minds. The rawest spirit of The Raconteurs is back. The dagger-like guitar riffs are back. Heavy rock is back, but asymmetrical. It could only be him.

In the history of rock, Jack White should have a genre of his own. Because neither his solo career nor The White Stripes sound like anything familiar, because that fury and that voice are not punk or garage, they are a personal brand.

Music by Bergman: King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard these words will definitely be out-of-date because the band will have released two or three new albums. The Australians are prolific labourers of music without a cause (you cannot talk about them only as spearheads of garage-rock and modern psych-rock). Also, each album feels like the seven members of the band have gone through the front door of a costume shop and come out of the backdoor with the first thing they laid their hands on: A Voivod T-shirt, Beatles-style tails, a pair of second hand trousers worn by one of the Butthole Surfers, a Motörhead badge, Jethro Tulls’s ankle boots, one of those The Flaming Lips’ feather boas…

But really, at the end of the day, there’s only one truth: whatever they play, they will make a party out of it. And it doesn’t look like that’ll go out of fashion any time soon. They’re the most entertaining rock band in the world and they’ve just released a new album Omnium Gatherum.

Music by Bergman: The Lazy Eyes

Roughly seven years after forming, the Sydney-based band is finally ready to drop their self-produced, self-recorded debut album, SongBook, in March. The collection is an escapist, idealistic, time-traveling journey that frolics in Beatles-flavored strawberry fields, trudges through heavy stoner sludge, and plays with the sort of effortless, heady sounds of artists like Tame Impala and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard who have made Australia this century’s hotbed for psych-rock. The band refers to their long-awaited debut as a trip down memory lane. Some songs were written nearly half a decade ago, after all—a lifetime in teenage years.

Music by Bergman: Chance the Rapper

Chance the Rapper is one of the biggest names in hip-hop, but even more impressive than that is the fact that he’s managed to achieve all of his massive mainstream success on his own terms. While refusing to sign a record deal, the musician has instead self-released five mixtapes, which have all been made available for free. Chance has taken home three Grammy Awards, including best rap album for 2016’s Coloring Book, and dropped his first official studio album, The Big Day, in July 2019.

Excluding his offering for the Space Jam Soundtrack, it’s been just over a year since we heard new music from Chance The Rapper. The Chicago rapper returns with the release of a new single. This one is called ‘Child Of God’ and features Naïla Opiangah and Moses Sumney.

Music by Bergman: Interpol

Almost 25 years after their formation, Interpol have survived everything. Post 9/11 New York that saw them emerge as the rock saviours of the 21st century, a debut album connected to the best memories of an entire generation, the post-punk revival that they spearheaded, the revival of that revival, their imitators, the parallel projects of their members and even themselves. At this point, Interpol have dodged so many bullets that they have earned the right to make their story theirs and no one else’s. But, above all, Paul Banks, Daniel Kessler and Sam Fogarino have earned the right to stretch that story as far and as long as they want: they will survive whatever comes next, and as a testimony they will give us new choruses that hurt and comfort at the same time.

Interpol have marked their return by sharing the cinematic video for new single ‘Toni’ and announcing details of their seventh album, ‘The Other Side of Make-Believe’.
