THELMA AND THE SLEAZE – Pain
“Pain” is the first single from the brand new Thelma and The Sleaze album “Fuck, Marry, Kill”. To quote Wikipedia, Thelma and the Sleaze is an independent all-female, queer southern rock band from Nashville, Tennessee. I’ve been a fan of the band for some years now, and one of the best descriptions of their music that I’ve found is from an excellent writeup at BTRToday titled “Thelma & The Sleaze Will Make You Scared, Horny And Empowered”:
…the music combines heavy rock ‘n’ roll and southern old school blues. The sound is sure to make any strict parent cry.
Thelma and the Sleaze are from Nashville, and you can find all their music on the band’s website.
YARD OF BLONDES – Je veux danser tout l’été
by Maria Savva
Today’s Track of the Day is the perfect summer anthem! It has a real feel-good vibe, and an addictive quality.
“Je veux danser tout l’été” (Translation: I wanna dance all summer long) was released by Yard of Blondes as part of an EP on 19th July 2019, which includes a remix and demo version of the song.
Fanny Hill (Vocals / Bass), told me, “Je veux danser tout l’été is lighter, happier, and more pop than our usual songs, and the chorus is in French! The song is the fruit of a unique collaboration with the famous DJ and producer Joachim Garraud. So there is a rock version of the song (original) and the remix. And we added to this EP our demo version.
“A unique collaboration: Joachim created “LA Good Vibe”, a R.V. transformed into a totally solar recording studio (link).
“He invited us to record the song “Je veux danser tout l’été” in the middle of the desert of California (link).”
GURR – Bye Bye
Gurr are a German garage rock band, a duo from Nuremberg and Oldenburg respectively who met and formed in Berlin around 2014/2015. ‘Bye Bye’ is from their EP She Says which came out in April this year.
I like this, it has a bit of everything that I find interesting in it: elements of garage rock, grunge, punk (at least pop-punk), and a touch of post-punk/new wave. Great song. With a nice insidious minor-key groove slithering along throughout. Lovely stuff.
