Three full album streams are first on the list. There’s Youth Code’s House Metal and Punk Electronica album, kind of like a dance party DJ’d by The Joker; Whirr’s Shoegaze Punk that ends up being more introspective than you might expect; lastly, Myrkur’s Hardcore Metal that’s interrupted every so often by angel choruses. If you’re sensing a common thread amongst these album streams, you’d be onto something.
Now, lemme take you track by track. Have a listen first to Dream-Pop duo PROM, newly signed to Ghost Beach’s Crazy Heart Records. So yes, expect great things. Next, check out Allo Darlin’s latest, most adorable Indie Folk-Pop jangle. Then, to really shake things up, catch Obituary’s 2-minute thrasher, appropriately labeled by Metalsucks as “a pleasant, upbeat little ditty.” AKA, utterly brutal Metal. Lastly, there’s Raul Midon’s collab with Dianne Reeves, a solid Acoustic Jazz jam to put your mind at ease.
Finally, splurge with some visual stimulation by way of music vids: roam the streets with The Raveonettes and some heartbroken assassins, cruise an abandoned beach in a B&W memory from Amp Live, and watch Iron Reagan take over the world (well, OK – more like the streets) in one of the greatest music videos ever made.
And that. Is. All. Have a splendid last technically summer weekend!
