False Advertising – Piece Of Mind
Manchester Fuzz messiahs False Advertising had an impressive 2015 and seem to be stepping it up a gear for the year ahead, following up their brilliant debut with a new EP in April,’Brainless’. First track ‘Piece of Mind’ is classic FA, big guitar with big fuzz, filthy bass, crashing drums and driving duel vocals. It starts by creeping into your brain and erupts into a festival of noise.
Zed Motel – TIE DYE/NEW PONY
Two is always better than one right? certainly the case for Swansea duo Zed Motel, their brand of stripped back garage rock leaves a longing for grunge glory days. Like Royal Blood with hints of The White Stripes and QOTSA, their latest single is Tie Die, stabbing riffs and hard hitting beats lead the way in a debut that shows a band packed with potential coming into a reviving scene.
Through The Sparks – The Driveway
Veteran psych-rockers The Driveway have dropped latest single ‘Through the Sparks’ ahead of their new album this spring. The Alabama band are masters of their craft now and their up beat new track it’s perfect blend of harmony, melody and riff with stunning guitar tones and piano with a sound that spans ages.
Oracle North – Communion
Hailing from Sweden, Oracle North’s latest single is a key-centric spiral into a brief history of electronic music, with sounds through out reminiscent of New Order, The xx and A Certain Ratio it’s dripping in post-punk feel destines to leave you hypnotised.
Telethon – Mineral King
Some times two things just shouldn’t go together but somehow it works, Wisconsin band Telethon have been called Modern Baseball meets Thin Lizzy and man, how it works. With the added bonus of piano and organ, it’s a tarring track that rips through the winter blues and make’s you think it’s summer. Somewhere between Pavement and Weezer, the old school skater riffs and heavenly melody, matching the honest vocal, make it seem like the sound track you your favourite 90’s movie.
