Real Rock And Roll
THUNDERMOTHER – Revival
Swedish rockers Thundermother have had one heck of a year. They’ve toured extensively, and they released one heck of a self-titled, kick-ass album filled with stick-to-your-ribs, balls-to-the-wall rock and roll. (Read my review.) “Revival” is taken from that album, and the video shows the band on stage, on fire, and in command.
Thundermother is Guernica Mancini on vocals, Filippa Nässil on guitar, Emlee Johansson on drums, and Sara Pettersson on bass.
Their self-titled album is available right now.
OCTOBER DRIFT – Come and Find Me
by Maria Savva
Today’s track of the day is the excellent, atmospheric indie-rock song “Come and Find Me”, the brand new single from October Drift and a follow-up to their haunting track “All Broken Down”, which was released in May.
Get your copy of the single on iTunes.
I was lucky enough to catch the band live at Camden Rocks Festival in June and would highly recommend you check them out if they play near you.
October Drift are currently on tour in the UK. Details here.
SPORTS TEAM – Margate
What would the Rolling Stones sound like if filtered through a post-punk lens, thirty years after Primal Scream and with a liberal dose of Roxy Music? Well, they’d probably sound a bit like Sports Team.
This is a band I’ve been listening to for a little while. Quite a few of their tracks have been on my list for track of the day, but I think this is their best so far. I love it. They’re from Cambridge here in the UK, although the video was apparently shot on location in, well, in Margate.
It seems very current to me this, it exists in the same universe as IDLES and Shame. There’s a sort of semi-ironic nod to the ’80s with the Ian Curtis style dancing and the Paul Weller (Style Council era) clothing. Put all of that together with the energy and classic sounding riffs of the track and seriously, what’s not to like? They’re getting better and better these guys. Keep an eye on them.
