Week 42 2021 Hi y’all here I’m with another round of 9 Albums/EPs you should listen to , released all of them recently (if you want you can take a look to our previous week here).
1.- Still Shaking Relax Friends. is comprised by 12 very unique tracks, each one with a very specific message in it. Some songs talk about love, some about anxiety, some about never losing yourself, but ultimately they all have their own beauty and should be added to your favorite punk rock playlists! You can read our review here!!!
2.- The Ministry Of Plausible Rumours Summer Again. In their own words “As an album, Summer Again hits a lot of our musical sweet spots with hints of the Rolling Stones, Roxy Music, the Ramones, Iggy Pop, and Carole King. More than anything, though, the album is about wanting to be out in the world and connecting with other people. Maybe one of our songs will make you think about someone you haven’t seen in a while. If it does, reach out and say hello. And tell them we said hello, too! Your can read our review here.
3.- Year Of The Fist DCxPC Live Vol. 4 Year of the Fist Live at the Ivy Room comes with four separate tracks that blast all the way through with full throttle. Heavy riffs, violent drums and a very powerful voice that feels like a mix between Joan Jett and Janis Joplin. Released in vinyl, is limited to 200 copies so make sure you get one yourself before they sell out! You can read our review here!!!
4.- Muddi Brooke Lunacy In her own words “This is our debut EP called ‘Lunacy’. The tracks on ‘Lunacy’ explore living through the challenges of life; those moments that make you feel a bit crazy and question your reasoning. With the events of 2020 it gave us precious opportunity to reset, revisit and evaluate. It was a perfect opportunity in a far-from-perfect period for the songs featured on ‘Lunacy’ to grow.”
5.- Weak Tyrant To Be Pure “is the first record of the fresh formed band WEAK TYRANT from Bern, Switzerland. The 4 songs are stylistically located somewhere between emo-pop-punk, indie rock and post-hardcore.” You can read our review for their debut single Slide.
6.- Varney Ideal is a Brazilian alternative band (Varney) releasing an album about the experiences in the pandemic year(s) that was especially hard in South American. A record made respecting social distancing, following the DIY methodology. Each member recorded in their own houses, experimenting and developing every part online. With alternative, industrial, post-punk e synth-wave influences, it is besides all that a rock album that wasn’t’ made only for Portuguese speakers.
7.- Fusia Ebony. Fusia are a new Danish indie pop trio consisting of Kristoffer Rander, Mads Appel and Simon Jepsen.Fusia marries a retro 80’s inspired sound with a modern pop production. The name ‘Fusia’ comes from the flower ‘fuchsia’ which is an almost artificial looking flower, even if it’s natural. This is also the inspiration behind their sound, which mixes organic and acoustic elements with an electronic production.
8- DrEw An Empty Place in his own words “An Empty Place is my debut EP, and is 4 songs about a lifetime of love and loss, of learning and music, and how all of these things are fleeting and impermanent, and yet no more beautiful for being so.”
9.- Sonia Aimy Reconnect “Reconnect embodies a fresh emanation of Sonia’s signature, dynamic sound, which blends afro-jazz, afrobeat, highlife, and elements of the African griot call-and-response tradition, in a string of easy flowing, yet virtuosic performances. As such, the album stands out in excellent execution and interpretation of today’s best African and worldbeat music.”
This week two bonus:
Marineris with the album My Band Could Be Your Home The concept behind the album is great too – it’s a glimpse into the minds of Gen-Z, reflecting a young person’s fragile state of mind. It explores the notion that music can be life-changing, or at times life-saving. It’s really fascinating to hear him sing about life as a teenager growing up in a tiny Industrial town in the middle of Ukraine.
Bleak Mystique with the EP Pageantry, Vol. 2 Formed in early 2021, Bleak Mystique combines the raw power of a rock trio with modern day production. Sam Shapiro lends grungy, punk inspired vocals, and distorted guitars to occupy the soundscape crafted by the bands skillful production in the studio. This is their second EP and was recorded over the summer.
