Divus Julius presents: Fleece

Fleece is a Canadian psychedelic alternative indie band with an especially eclectic style, they put a twist on the modern day alternative sound by blending aspects of funk grooves, jazzy rhythm, and the phantasmagoric rock sound of the 1970s with their overall indie genre. With influences like, Herbie Hancock, The Beatles, Grizzly Bear, Radiohead, and Tame Impala, to name a few. “We get re-inspired everyday by music.   The end result surprisingly being a sound that’s so stylistically smooth you could just snuggle with it.

The Montreal-based psych quartet have shared a new single “Do U Mind? (Leave the Light On),” along with a sensuous new video. “Do U Mind? (Leave the Light On)” is the fourth in Fleece‘s recent series of singles. Their third full-length album, the follow-up to 2017’s Voyager, is due later this year.

4EVER SONGS: RADIOHEAD ‘CREEP’

Creep. It was released as a debut single in 1992, and appeared on their debut album, Pablo Honey. The song wasn’t an initial success, but later became a worldwide hit when it was rereleased in 1993.

The song was supposedly written by singer Thom Yorke while he was studying at Exeter University in second half of the 1980’s. According to guitarist Jonny Greenwood, the song was inspired by a girl that Thom followed around whom also attended a Radiohead event.

The song talks about a intoxicated man that keeps following a woman around, whom he is attacted to. Towards the end, he is not enough self-confident to confront her.  

Music by Bergman: EOB

Welcome to Earth, the debut solo album from Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien. Working under the name EOB, O’Brien has funneled a decade’s worth of ideas and a broad cast of collaborators into a truly fascinating collection of music. This album bleeps and surges and thumps and whirrs, all while congealing into something quite immediate and accessible. It’s a straightforward pop-rock collection in essence, a sonic exploration in practice.

Best Covers: Michelle Branch ‘Creep’

British rock band Radiohead released their debut single Creep in 1992. The song appeared on their first album, Pablo Honey, and won the NME Award for Best Single in 1993. Creep is one of Radiohead’s most iconic songs but was banned by the BBC on the radio for its ‘depressing’ nature and language.

American singer, songwriter and actress Michelle Branch covers the acoustic version of Creep, in the trailer of second season YOU.

 

 

Divus Julius presents: Low Roar

Californian, Ryan Karazija started Low Roar when he moved to Reykavik, Iceland in 2010. It is easy to attribute his atmospheric music to Iceland. It immediately calls to mind the landscape feel as elicited by two of it’s most famous exports: Bjork and Sigur Ros. His eponymous 2011 debut, also showcased his delicate vocals, a cadence similar to Thom Yorke’s, that against the rich, cinematic background, found favor with fans of Radiohead; and bands inspired by them such as Other Lives.

 Two years after Once in a Long, Long While…,they have just released a new album called ross. Tomorrow in concert a Sala Sidecar.
