- Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever – ‘An Air Conditioned Man‘
How cool is to play in a guitar band named Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever in 2018? Well, it’s pretty cool I’d say, especially if ‘you’ are able to create music like the recently shared ‘An Air Conditioned Man‘. Three guitarists in the same band! Yup, R.B.C.F. seem pretty much capable of creating guitarwork that speaks to our souls, and above all sounding fresh! ‘An Air Conditioned Man‘ is taken out from their upcoming album ‘Hope Downs‘ (Sub Pop / Ivy League Records, June 15). Until then…
- Firtan – ‘Seegang‘
Firtan from Germany will release their second album ‘Okeanos‘ on July 13th via AOP Records. Firtan has drawn positive attention due to its sophisticated approach which is deeply rooted to black metal and unfolds with a mixture of progressive and atmospheric elements. ‘Seegang‘ reveals their captivating sound.
- Sannhet – ‘Fernbeds’
Sannhet is an experimental metal band from Brooklyn, New York which incorporates black, sludge and shoegaze metal sounds. Their third full-length album ‘So Numb‘ was released last August via Profound Lore Records, and now we have the pleasure to enjoy the official video of ‘Fernbeds’ song.
Sannhet’s beautiful dark and chaotic sound is now combined with an artistic visualization.
- Arctic Monkeys – ‘Four Out Of Five‘
‘Four Out Of Five’ is the first song that came out from the just released latest album by Arctic Monkeys, accompanied with a well made video directed by Ben Chappell & Aaron Brown. ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’ is the first album after five years from the acclaimed, British, indie rockers, and it’s out via Domino.
The new song brings to your mind music aesthetics of 70s but it keeps the “irrationality” and the punk attitude of indie rock, swapping one another. From the vintage romance that we have also felt in their previous albums, -but this time is more intense-; To a punk-ish posture with mature absurdness that gains the listener’s attention.
- Nine Inch Nails– ‘God Break Down The Door‘
This is fantastic! Yup, the latest single ‘God Break Down The Door‘ by Nine Inch Nails comes with a surprise. Unlike most of Reznor‘s tracks, in which his vocals reign the music, a saxophone is the ‘dominator’ in this one.
Could easily be an outtake from David Bowie‘s final album ‘★‘. Taken from ‘Bad Witch‘, out on June 22.
