August 27, 2022.
Hey, I’m so glad to have here, welcome to our blog and to the round up for 9 Albums/EPs you should listen to this week. Week 34 this time, last round of the month, I’m excited as always with these albums that I’m about to show you, well some of them we already presented, you know it right, both on pre-order.
This week I want to invite you to visit the category “Female Rising Stars” I have two options for you, the first one is the playlist with the newest debuts (more or less one the last 30 days), I’m trying to have only 50 so you can handle easily (I know, I’m failing but you have to give credit to those talented women, they left me no choice to have be over that number most of the time) but if you’re mental or have tons of free listening time you can go for the whole 2022, so far over 1K tracks here.
As always, please don’t forget to support these artists with the actions that you can, for mention a few: stream, follow, share them with you loved ones, add them to your playlists, pre-save their upcoming releases, and if you can support them buying their music you can do it directly from Bandcamp, you can find those links in the articles we have on the blog.
Most of these albums are recently released (and important to say that you always can take a look back at our previous week recommendations Becca Starr, Fletcher, Jackson, Zechariah Lloyd, and more…, for the whole 2022 or 2021).
ALL ALBUMS/EPS SUBMITTED AND DISCOVERED VIA MUSOSOUP
1.- To Hell With Tradition Blurred is quite an impressive concept album from beginning to end, succeeding brilliantly in conveying To Hell With Tradition’s pillars of authenticity and depth; each song on Blurred is inspiring and creatively original, while flowing seamlessly together to create a wonderfully cohesive work that transcends the confines of any single genre of music. Highly recommended. You can read our review here.
2.- Gillian Rae Perry the LA-based singer-songwriter has been living with a condition called depression with mixed features. This form comes with mood swings that go from one extreme all the way to the other. At the time of receiving that diagnosis, the artist decided to start collecting her experiences of living with a mental illness and combining them into what has now become her second studio album titled “Gillgil“.You can read our review here.
3.- Kolbak This grungy third album “To The Teeth” is full of what makes the band so special. The band explores the issues of communication, the importance and almost impossible desire of communication and smiling at the face of adversity in a playful, yet extremely touching and serious manner by exploring the persona of different characters. Each one of the seven tracks of the album offers a different flavour of what KOLBAK is all about. An awesome album for old and new fans alike! You can read our review here.
4.-Broken Castles Comprising members of Our Man in the Bronze Age, Exploding Ear Ensemble and Graveltrap, this power-3 -piece of brothers forged in the fires of a golden era come from well respected rock & punk foundations. They play a riff-led style of stoner-blues-grunge-sludge-psych-punk-rock. Debut EP Follow.
6.- Centershift have focused on their longtime friendship, passion for storytelling and crafting rock songs that have huge riffs, big vocal hooks and a timeless alt/rock vibe fans will appreciate. Listen now “Of…”
7.- Ace Hansel Jr. Step into the world of Croix-Noire, but watch your back. This is not the safest place to be. Croix-Noire is one of the roughest areas in France, full of deadbeats, drug addicts and hookers. And that’s just the municipal library! Listen now Songs From Croix Noire.
8- King Kaos by Kon (vocals), Erik (guitar),Michael (bass) Anton (drums), we were brought together by our common influences and great musical chemistry. Our hope is to convey to our fans a unique form of metal created from our different musical influences and love for metal! Darker themes Apocalyptic in nature, and dark impulses of humanity listen now “Wasteland”
The bonus this week is for Peste Gris by Turista Digital an ambient-based project from Carlos Durán, a young artist from Valdivia, Chile. He experiments and builds landscapes that can be noisy and weird-feeling as they can be soothing, like a blurred dream. The 6-songs record takes you into a journey from brilliant noisy synths, to harsh metallic pounding objects. It was recorded on a 4 month lapse, each track being made and recorded sporadically during that time. In August, he thought he had enough material to release an album, and then, he assembled everything to make it.
I hope not only you can enjoy these artists but also remember to support them, streaming and sharing their work that obviously you can find in the Playlist Less Than 1,000 Followers, Fresh Singles, Indie Only, Alterindie State of Mind, Female Rising Stars, 12 New Songs This Week, Sickest & Dopest, Hot Stuff Metal, Take It Easy, and Unknown but Essentials!
