- Marijannah – ‘1966’
Singapore’s stoner metal band Marijannah released ‘1966‘ this past week from their upcoming album ‘Istanah‘ set to be on your playlists December 6th. ‘1966‘ is filled with heavy riffs, fuzzy retro vibes, and oddly enough vocals that are reminiscent of Liam Gallagher’s from Oasis. If that sounds weird enough for you, give it a go.
- 100 – ‘Weightless’
Two words that initially came up while listening to 100‘s ‘Weightless‘ are: Absolute epic-ness! 6 minutes of absolite post-punk bliss mixed with Australian guitar rock tradition and behemoths like The Replacements. Enigmatic Syndey 4-piece 100 are not in a hurry to prove what they are. They know how to build their slow-burner anthems, and ‘Weightless‘ is a must-hear for any rock fan. Still reading?
Rowen Tucker, Jaryd Colivas, Paris Grant & Colby Mcqueen score 100!
- Andrew Bird – ‘Manifest’ Featuring Erika Wennerstrom
Originally ‘Manifest‘ came out via Andrew Bird’s ‘My Finest Work Yet‘ LP back in March, but this week a new version featuring Erika Wennerstorm’s earthly vocals was released. The former Heartless Bastards‘ singer and Bird’s voices meld seamlessly with one another, “radical and free”. Give this track questioning the environmental predicament we’ve gotten ourselves into a listen.
- Tim Ayre – ‘Barcelona’
Another Aussie citizen, this time from Melbourne, Tim Ayre who recemtly shared his ear-melting, dreamy single ‘Barcelona‘. Taken off his recently released debut eponymous EP (on Kitsuné Music), this track will drive you nuts with its catchiness and eerie atmosphere. An absolute indie pop bliss, that we strongly recommend!
Summer may be a bit far away, but no matter thanks to Ayre we may dream a bit of Barceloneta….
- Melis – ‘Soppoppia, Pt. 1’
Melis is ‘faithful’ to the tradition of Scandinavians unleashing the most nostalgic and warm music, unlike their climate. The inner warmth of his ‘Soppoppia, Pt. 1‘ is a strong proof of what we nay expect by this Norwegian in the near future.
Exploring his love for Jean Michel Jarre. and growing up with Commodore 64 and Amiga computers result in the finest retrowave gem, which slowly builds up until conquering our souls and minds. On endless repeat!
