Real Rock And Roll
THE HEARD – Sirens
The Heard’s new track “Sirens” is a dark and evocative tune, showing off the vocals of Pepper Potemkin. It’s a great tune, and another interesting release from this new Swedish band.
The Heard is based in Stockholm and they describe their music as “heavy riffs, misty songs, dark waters and a death supreme”.The band members are Klara Force on guitar, Ida Evileye on bass, Nikki Wicked on drums (all three were previously in Crucified Barbara), Jonas “Skinny Disco” Kangur on lead guitar, and Pepper Potemkin on vocals.
JET BLACK 3 – Carousel
by Maria Savva
It’s always exciting when Jet Black 3 release new music. They are one of those bands you can count on to produce quality songs. Jet Black 3 are one of my favourite bands at the moment.
Their latest single is my pick for today’s Track of the Day: “Carousel” is a catchy song that I’ve been listening to quite a lot since its release at the end of April. Jet Black 3 have quite an original sound. They play wonderfully bluesy grunge rock. “Carousel” has a bit of a country music twist to it as well. It’s an uplifting melodic track.
Get a copy of “Carousel” from iTunes.
Add it to your Spotify playlists.
The band will play Somerset’s Unsigned festival on 18th August. Keep an eye on their social media for more gig announcements.
FANTASTIC NEGRITO – Plastic Hamburgers
I revealed my latest musical obsession on Friday when I wrote up my review of this guy’s gig in Manchester. Well, here it is again. Fantastic by name, fantastic by nature, Xavier Dphrepaulezz is back as Fantastic Negrito with a new album Please Don’t Be Dead due on 16th June. ‘Plastic Hamburgers’ is the lead-off single for this and is a bit of a monster.
He calls his music “blues with a punk attitude”. Yes, he’s essentially a blues player, but listen to this and tell me you can’t hear echoes of Hendrix’s ‘Crosstown Traffic’ as well as a heavy dose of Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave. I can’t stop playing this one, or the second single ‘The Duffler’ which you should check out too.
There’s obviously a social protest element to this track too. At the show in Manchester, he invited us all to join ‘NegritoNation’, to reject notions of who we should be, how we should look, how we should talk and behave. I’m in. All the way.
