Real Rock And Roll
BLACK STAR RIDERS – Another State of Grace
“Another State of Grace” is a brand new track from Black Star Riders, taken from the band’s upcoming album by the same name, set for release on September 6th by Nuclear Blast. The new track is a spectacular and powerful blast of Celtic rock’n’roll that definitely whets the appetite for more new music from the band.
Black Star Riders’ last album, 2017’s “Heavy Fire”, was a tour de force, and it’s been on pretty much constant rotation at my house (and in my car) since it was released.
Black Star Riders are heading out on tour with Stone Broken and Wayward Sons this fall. All the tour dates are available on the band’s website.
TAROT RATS – Pseudo
by Maria Savva
If you follow the blog, you’ll know that Tarot Rats are one of my favourite bands. I’ve been following them for quite a few years now. I love their sound and the fact that they are not trying to sound like anyone else but just enjoying the music they create and consistently producing original songs with lyrics that are full of depth, and rhythms that push genre boundaries.
I was excited to hear that the band are working on their debut album, to be released later in the year. Today’s track of the day, “Pseudo”, is the first single from that album, which has the working title of “Veronica”. You can pre-order the album from the band’s website, and when you do, you’ll get this track as an instant download. “Pseudo” is a phenomenal track. It’s catchy, dancey rock ‘n’ roll, that will make you want to sing along. I can’t wait to hear the full album.

CRYSTAL – Sugar Sweet
Crystal are the second Glasgow band I’m picking this week. I really like this one. It’s spiky and abrasive and reminds me, musically, of Wire or Elastica. Anna Shields’ vocals are somewhat warmer though, less disassociated than that of those bands.
The band remind me a little bit of their scene contemporaries The Van Ts who I’ve written about on the blog before. As far as I can tell (I might be wrong) it looks like the band is as yet unsigned. But I’m sure that won’t be the case for long. Definitely, one to watch out for these guys.
