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!’.
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, JackWhite 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.
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard these words will definitely be out-of-date because the band will have released two or three new albums.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.
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.
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’.
Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard’s debut album Backhand Deals, is a rejuvenating homage to unpretentious 1970s classic rock that steadfastly refuses to take itself too seriously. The Cardiff four-piece, consisting of frontman and guitarist Tom Rees, his bassist brother Eddie, fellow guitarist Zac White and drummer Ethan Hurst, have been the subject of heady excitement since their debut EP The Non-Stop landed in July 2020.
Toro y Moi started as the solo project of Chaz Bear, who took his solo musical endeavors to greater and greater heights of sophistication on a series of releases with the encouragement of his friend from school, Ernest Greene of Washed Out. In the wake 2008’s global economic collapse, Toro y Moi emerged as a figurehead of the beloved sub-genre widely known as chillwave, the sparkling fumes of which still heavily influence musicians all over today.
Toro y Moi project will return this spring with the new album Mahal.
