VOICE OF BACEPROT – School Revolution
Voice of Baceprot, also known as VoB, is a three-piece metal band from Garut, Indonesia. The band members are vocalist and guitarist Firdda Kurnia, drummer Eusi Siti Aisyah and bassist Widi Rahmawati. They formed the band in 2014, and have been playing ever since.
More about the band from a feature at NPR, “…the band’s name literally means “noisy” in the ethnic Sundanese language the three members speak. The band’s music is inspired by the likes of metal music legends such as Slipknot, Lamb of God and Rage Against The Machine. As the band’s popularity continues to grow, Voice of Baceprot is fast becoming part of a thriving underground metal scene in Indonesia…”
Vhave fantastic punk-metal-rock sound, and the attitude to boot.
SONNY JIM – Don’t Know What You Got Til It’s Gone
by Maria Savva
Today’s track of the day is an addictive rock song from Sonny Jim. Released on 21st March 2019 via Holier Than Thou Records, the song has already been featured as a track of the week in Classic Rock Magazine. It’s got a real classic rock sound, with passionate vocals, and lyrics that will really make you stop and think. It’s one of the best new rock songs I’ve heard this year.
Grab your copy of the song @ iTunes.
This single should be in every rock fan’s collection. Track 2 on the single, “Final Salute”, is also awesome. A poignant, acoustic song.
SLOTHRUST – Peach
Right, if you don’t like this then I don’t know how to make you happy. Slothrust are an alt-rock band from Boston and have been around since 2012. ‘Peach’ is from their last album The Pact which came out in September last year.
I love this. It’s about as American indie as you can get. Proper post-grunge indie music, with a debt to The Pixies as pretty much every grunge and post-grunge band has, and a little nod to Sonic Youth here and there. It actually brings to mind The Breeders for me more than anything else, I guess it’s probably the slightly off-kilter, under-tuned riff that runs through it. Even when it kicks up a gear it never lets go of that little insidious guitar phrase that runs right through the spine of the song. Yeah, it’s great. Happy weekend everyone.
