This new track from Texas-based rockers Scorpion Child hits the spot just right. Heavy, trippy, and just plain satisfying: this is a terrific new tune from the band.
Catch Scorpion Child on tour right now in Europe with Crobot and Buffalo Summer (one hell of a lineup): it’s the European Invasive Species Tour!
I recently got my first taste of Legs Electric’s brand new track and video ‘Strange Addiction, and holy cow, this thing is just the right kind of heavy, groovy, riffy goodness for a terrific day! Legs Electric is fresh off a successful tour in their home-country Australia, playing to full houses in Sydney, and are writing and recording a new album – definitely looking forward to that!
‘Strange Addiction’ is currently available at major digital outlets, including iTunes and Apple Music, Spotify, SoundCloud and CDBaby.
The band is based in Perth, and is made up of Laura McCormack on guitar, Ama Quinsee on lead vocals, Kylie Soanes on drums, and Abby Soanes on bass. If you are in Perth, you can catch them at the Astor Theatre on September 27th as support for Sebastian Bach’s “18 and Live Down Under” Australian tour.

I love this raw and emotional version of ‘The River’ from Swedish singer and musician Moa Holmsten (she previously fronted the heavy metal band Meldrum). Holmsten recently released an album called ‘Bruised Arms and Broken Rhythms’, and (maybe somewhat surprisingly) the track-list is 100% covers of Bruce Springsteen songs.
To quote Holmsten’s website:
After years of hard work by me, Tony Naima and the rest of 35 musicians that were involved in creating this album. Blood, sweat and tears, literally Its finally done. Bruised Arms And Broken Rhythm. A line from the song Incident on 57th Street I have learned so much during this work. I have gotten to know songs, many of them I hadnt heard before, and I hope many hear these songs and learn something too. Mostly what an extraordinarie songwriter Springsteen is and I hope I have contribuited to that knowledge. Enjoy! Much love Yours sincerly /Moa
