  1. Moaning – ‘Artificial’ (Live at Tapetown)

After a loooong summer break Songs of the Week column is returning! No better way to re-start with the Californian post-punk darlings Moaning and their latest live video at Tapetown Studios (Aarhus, Denmark) for ‘Artificial‘. One of the best bands of the recent years performing a post-punk hymn for the lost dreams, lost hopes and the turmoil of this era. Superb!

This session was recorded at Tapetown Studios in Aarhus, Denmark on 24th of August 2018 as part of Moanings 3rd European tour – having previously toured both alone and with fellow Sub Pop label-mates METZ.”

  1. Windhand – ‘Diablerie

Eternal Return‘, the fourth full length from Richmond, Virginia’s heavy psychedelic quartet Windhand represents a new era for the group, a chrysalis moment that takes them to new and unforeseen heights. Across nine songs and 63 minutes, ‘Eternal Return‘ is an infectious display of songcraft cloaked in alluring atmosphere, molten fuzz, eerie psychedelia and ethereal vocals.

  1. Karg – ‘Petrichor‘ (feat. L.G. // Ellende)

Karg is an one-man black metal band from Austria, known as J.J. who is the vocalist and guitarist of the band Harakiri For The Sky. The musician’s themes are depression and self-destruction, probably based on personal experience. Karg’s music is labelled as atmospheric, post black metal, however there are influences from post-rock and hardcore.

  1. The Burney Sisters – ‘Ocean Eyes

How possible is it two sisters aged only 10 & 13 years, to create such a mature music? Who am I talking about? Talkin’ bout The Burney Sisters who sound like accomplished singers/songwriters (with their age’s freshness though) on their debut single ‘Ocean Eyes‘ off their upcoming EP ‘Where We Stand‘, out on September 28th. Spectacular americana pop, from these super-talented sisters. Keep your ears open for them…

  1. Tender Glue – ‘Lights Out

We recently covered wrote about ‘Rudy‘ by the alt-folk project Tender Glue on the 1st round of Indie-Coaster. ‘Lights Out‘ is an excellent bittersweet tune from soon-to-be-released album ‘Closet Leftovers‘ (September 28th). Just listen to this one while reading the lyrics….

Remember how

We used to jump the shades

Such a joy

In the gravity play

 

Yes I know

It may sound the same

But each of one

Is different face

 

On the mountain top

Cause you know the place

I’ll meet you up

But we can rearrange

 

Yes I know

It may sound the same

But each of one

Is different face

Lights out may help

Cause lights out are the best

With you

Music for the soul. Music that makes you feel, cry, smile. The miracle of music creation. Sometimes words are too poor to describe. Love this!
