Divus Julius presents…Hookworms

Microshift is the Leeds band’s first new work in over 3 years and marks a seismic shift in their sound, dynamic, songwriting and production, whilst still bearing all the ferocious energy, intricate musicianship and bruised but beautiful song-craft of the previous releases which have quietly made them one of the UK’s most revered young bands.

This is the band’s third studio album technically but arguably the first in which the studio has been central to its creation. Pearl Mystic and second LP, The Hum were heavily informed by the band’s live sound,

Favourite Gig: Jake Bugg

El britànic Jake Bugg, ha construït una sòlida carrera que va començar als 12 anys quan va aprendre a tocar la guitarra. Inspirat per artistes com Don McLean, Johnny Cash o The Beatles, va començar un parell d’anys després a compondre els seus propis temes. Ara, amb només 23 anys i després d’estar nominat al Mercury Music Prize i als Brits, defensa el seu quart disc, ‘Hearts that strain’ (2017), una nova mostra del seu pop rock de guitarres.

Hit of the week: Everything Everything ”Can’t Do”

UK band Everything Everything has dropped a new single entitled ”Can’t Do,” the lead-track off their forthcoming, James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Foals, Depeche Mode) produced album A Fever Dream. This is the band’s fourth album. It’s the follow up to the critically-lauded Top 10 album “Get To Heaven”, an album that can now be seen to have been incredibly prescient given the current state of the world. It was their third consecutive Top 10 album, after LPs “Man Alive,” and “Arc.”

So Long Forever Palace

The London boys Palace who have releases their debut LP So Long Forever  will play tonight at  Sidecar.

Palace sounds like a band that has always existed. Beautifully crafted and mature, their debut album So Long Forever  is sure to ascend them to the status of indie darlings. Fans of Foals and The National will especially appreciate their melancholy and unrushed vibe as well as their existential songwriting, which will stay with you long after the final play.

Hit of the week: Jens Lekman ‘What’s That Perfume That You Wear?’

‘What’s That Perfume That You Wear?’ is the first track off Lekman’s upcoming fourth album Life Will See You Now. The track heavily samples steel drums from Ralph McDonald’s track ‘The Path’, giving ‘Perfume’ an ecstatically upbeat composition. ‘Perfume’ operates at a high tempo, with a sweet bass line recalling disco- a genre that Lekman has revealed to feature heavily on his new album.

Productora de Pardals: Tuska

Tuska  released their debut single Fine a while ago. Mestre Bergman introduced to us this duo from Brighton  whose members are: Richard Sturges and Rob Weaver.

Born out of their love for Modern British Rock and all things Psychedelic, Tuska meld together spacey synths, crunchy guitar riffs and falsetto vocals with intricate songwriting to provide a complete experience for the listener. Both multi-instrumentalist and experimentalists Sturges and Weavermeticulously create every inch of their songs harnessing the ability to stuff the right drum beat under the right melody, or peppering the right harmony to compliment the appropriate backing vocal.

Tuska’s debut single Fine is the perfect introduction from the duo, a psych-pop track which builds to an irresistible chorus ignited by a weighty riff that just refuses to leave your head. These three minutes embodies exactly what the band are: cinematic, melodic and intriguing. Some few ago the’ve just released a new song “We could be alone”
