“There was this crazy and eerie atmosphere I clearly recall. This event I tried to embed in a story of two lovers spending the night before an impending catastrophic incident,” Milutin Krasevic / Bones In Butter.
“I enjoy listening to Terence McKenna’s lectures and also appreciate what his brother, Dennis, is doing to bring awareness to the medical benefits of psychedelics. I also have a deep love for psychedelic music.
“On the surface Blush is a song about love, once dug a little deeper it is about novelty love. This song echoes the pressures of what our society dictates what the narrative of love is. Through melodic hooks and vivid metaphors, Blush tells the chaotic story of Hallmark love. I'd call it a reflection of the plastic love our society indulges in. Gen Z the Great Society is about the zeitgeist that is generation z.
“Traitor, in its core is a visceral song about being betrayed. The beautiful thing about it, is that it can be applied to any situation that involves some form of betrayal. The birth of the song came from when almost every member of the band went through one or more forms of betrayal in the span of like a week. And from the pain and frustration came the idea of traitor. We had been really working towards trying to reinvent our sound as a band, and this was the perfect moment. So we took the song and ran with it. Trying to put as much emotion as we could into it.” Seven Days Rest
Considering The Chemistry Set’s veteran presence and cult status in the psychedelic rock scene, it comes as no surprise that the album marking their 35th anniversary is a highly enjoyable and thoroughly impressive work.
“This is a song about temptation. The story starts with the main character having a nice evening at home, strumming her guitar, while the devil pays a visit, knocks on the door and as he tries to seduce her, a dialogue begins." Abstinthe Green
Parallel’s self-titled EP is quite an impressive debut release, and a compellingly engaging listen throughout; at the same time that the songs on the EP convey the wistful feelings of isolation that listeners will surely relate to, their powerfully dreamy atmospheres also bring about a relaxing sense of tranquility. Highly recommended.
NDX have returned with a new single, “Underground,” which takes listeners on a grooving rock’n’soul adventure into an uber-cool subterranean place where “the beats get hot when the sun goes down.” As the band describes the new single, it brings to us a new musical genre: "subterranean swing!"
The second verse then sees buzzing, retro-sounding synths enter the mix, their melodies and textures bringing to mind old-school electronic bands like Kraftwerk; while additional layers of synths later join in, harmonizing quite well with each other and building further on the track’s retro electronic vibe.
