Pure Sugar Pop Bliss – Bristol Tandem TINY DYNO Scores 24 Carat Gold Hit With New Single ‘STILL’

Daily electricity to load your batteries

17 November 2021

Band: TINY DYNO
Who: Indie pop duo – Tom Kuras and Emily Gardiner – from Bristol, UK

New single: STILL
First taster from their upcoming debut EP

“Like all Tiny Dyno create, Still has a heart and a softness at core that lives
high in its lush shine. Vocals move against synth sounds that hang tight and
glitter while the song smoothly spins out and shimmers. The lightest of Coctau
Twins ties into Beach House. That cool Goldfrapp glam hits a Fleetwood Mac
hitch. Still is a song made of sweet melancholy and steeped in C86 tradition.

Turn Up The Volume: This pure sugar pop bliss feels good at first, better
the second time and the best with all other spins. Great pop-ular music is
about lifting up the listener’s mood to a euphoric level for about 3/4 minutes.
Easier said than done, many try many fail. But not here.

Still is a glorious harmonious touchy-feely gem that sticks from the kick-off with
Gardiner‘s tantalising voice and Kuras‘ vitalizing guitar ravishment. Add a delirious
chorus and you have a 24-Carat gold hit single. Fact!

Gorgeous Duo DILETTANTE Shares Gorgeous Debut Single About Gorgeous ‘BONNIE’

Daily electricity to load your batteries

16 November 2021


(Photo: Calm Elliott-Armstrong / Styling: Bianca Tomori)

Band: DILETTANTE
Who: Toronto dream pop duo, Natalie Panacci and Julia Wittmann,
who performed for 5 years as For Jane, a project inspired by their
dogs (fact!)

New single: BONNIE
The first taster of the pair’s upcoming debut LP

Dilettante: “Imagine – it’s a crisp autumn evening. You’re out at a garage rock show.
You meet eyes with the drummer. He’s sweaty and lanky, but you like it. In a crowd of
post-performance cigarette smoke, he says this to you: “Bonnie, you’re a work of art,
you’re a wildcard, you’re a dreamboat.” So you run home, turn on your roommate’s
shitty old keyboard, and blast out the first verse of a song. The drummer goes back
home to the UK to become a sweaty, lanky memory…but “Bonnie” lives on. She’s the
impossible, perfect muse – she’s the protagonist deciding her own fate – she’s Audrey
Hepburn.”

Turn Up The Volume: Sensual, sexy, sultry. These words came immediately to
my mind on hearing this electronic pop gem for the first time. Its ongoing hypnotic
flow, its tenacious briskness, its glimmering synth/guitar romanitcism, and its desirous
vocals will make you long for your own gorgeous Bonnie. This kind of starry-eyed and elevating dream-pop pizzazz, symphonically orchestrated, is what turns your day into
a gorgeous rainbow. Top!

With Or Without You VHS COLLECTION Shine On Electro Pop Beauty ‘SPACE BETWEEN US’

Daily electricity to load your batteries

13 November 2022

Band: VHS COLLECTION
Who: Electro-pop trio from New York City

New album: NIGHT DRIVE – 2nd LP
Release: February 2022


Striking artwork

New single: SPACE BETWEEN US

“‘Space Between Us’ is immersed in the desire to put aside the trivial things
in life and be at peace with the one you love. We wrote this song several years
ago but hadn’t come up with a production we liked. The version you hear now
is the result of several attempts, combining electronics and a pop-goes-new-wave
groove with influence from U2’s “With or Without You.”

Turn Up The Volume: This is an electronic dazzler that sticks from the get-go
starting with that glowing intro of U2’s classic gem With Or Without, but sliding
trippingly into an electronic beauty of its own. Space Between Us transfers you
to la-la land making you forget the difficult times we live in for a while.

The shiny synths and harmonious vocal dreaminess will make you feel the
sweetest thing on a beautiful day in the city where the streets have no name.

THE FLAMING LIPS And Their 13-Year Old Fan NELL SMITH Cover NICK CAVE

Daily electricity to load your batteries

12 November 2021

Artists: THE FLAMING LIPS and NELL SMITH

Nell is a 13-year old fan of Oklahoma’s eccentric Lips.
Frontman Wayne Coyne spotted her at one point as she
attended several gigs with her father. They got in touch
and after Coyne found out that she’s a singer he proposed
her to work with the band on a Nick Cave tribute album he
already had in mind for some time.

They got all in the studio and the result is a 9-song Nick Cave
covers album baptized When The Viaduct Looms covers LP,
with Nell on vocals.

Release: 26 November 2021

Coyne: “It is always great to meet excited, young creative people.
With Nell we could see she is on a journey and thought it would be
fun to join her for a while and see if we could get things going. It was
a great way to connect with her and help harness her cool attitude
to making music.”

Nell: “I hadn’t heard of Nick Cave but Wayne suggested that we should
start with an album of his cover versions, and then look at recording some
of my own songs later. It was cool to listen and learn about Nick Cave and
pick the songs we wanted to record.”

Nick Cave: “I’m a fan.”

A first cover Girl In Amber was shared a few weeks ago and now we get an
amazing interpretation of one of my all-time Cave favorites The Ship Song
(my wedding song 12 years ago). Smith‘s vocals are just splendid…

The Cave original

Tracklist

1. ‘Girl In Amber’
2. ‘Weeping Song’

4. ‘O Children’

Daily electricity to load your batteries

10 November 2021

Band: DOWN WITH SPACE
Who: Dream pop duo – Rob Helsten (vocals/ guitar)
and Steve Dumas (drums) – from Montreal, Quebec

New single: WHAT YOU KEEP TELLING YOURSELF

“Getting past the bad and getting on with the good is at the heart of our new
song. Inspired by a pair of completely unrelated, unfortunate life experiences,
a bicycle accident and a serious kitchen fire ‘What You Keep Telling Yourself’ is
centered around the theme of perseverance.”

Turn Up The Volume: Expect a coherent mix of electronica and drums/guitar
with a motorik and magnetic rhythm that gets under your skin without realizing
it. The catching combination of near whispering vocals, scintillating David Gilmour
like guitar vibrance and cybernated elegance creates an overall ear-pleasing vibe
culminating in a dynamic finale. A shiny up in space score!

matter if it’s right or wrong
if it’s been or if it’s gone
don’t ever think you don’t belong
the world’s quick and moving on
the world’s quick and moving on again

Smells Like Berlin Punk Spirit – THE TRASH CRAWLERS Want You To Buzz Off!

Daily electricity to load your batteries

5 November 2021

Band: THE TRASH CRAWLERS
Who: Steamed-up punk gang from Berlin

Single: RED LEATHER
The closing whopper of their recent
6-firecrackers EP Buzz Off!

Turn Up The Volume: I didn’t know that Amy Taylor, the full-red-blooded
frontwoman (I fell in love the moment I saw her going nuts live, two years ago)
of Australian hit team, Amyl And The Sniffers has a twin sister. Yes, this scorching
Berlin gang’s blond front punkette looks terrifically alike and sneers and spits with
the same giddy gusto and goddamn guts. And her band matches the razor-sharp
cutting riff ravage of the Sniffers. Get the rowdy picture? You’ll love this smelly trash.

Alert your neighbors before you play this stonking sucker punch and before you
start banging your poor head against the kitchen door. On second thought, invite
your neighbors and let them smash your kitchen door so you can save yourself
from a painful concussion.

Hallelujah! Kick out the jams!

Right here, right now…
