Never an act to stray away from rocking out and saying whatever comes to mind – The @if return this month with an April Fool’s Day special entitled Prank U (Gold Digger).
Rock & Roll
A heavy beat and some well-placed, distorted riffs pave the way for this infectiously raw and raucous new single from Guy Freedom English.
What is basically an anthem for self-discovery and individuality, “Your Satisfaction is Fake” implores all of us to thoughtfully reflect on the contents of our being.
What seems like a fairly simple, and carefree love song hides a much deeper and darker secret.
Book of Shame’s most recent release Compatibility is like an unforgettable LSD trip through time and space, that’s as lucid as it is alluringly ambiguous.
The members of Iron Core have an incredible talent to craft deceptively catchy rock tunes that, much like their inspirations, are just dripping with attitude and sex appeal, and are just a whole lot of fun.
Dominic Argiro drives with high energy & an organic, infectious country-rock aura for this latest collection of tracks. He offers consistently uplifting & hopeful ideas within his songwriting. Whatever the mood or the style, there’s something inherently good-hearted about his work.
Bad Bones keep classic rock and roll alive and kicking with this latest album High Rollers. Bursting through with high octane power chords and impressively fast-paced drum work, American Days introduces the project in a bold way.
“The Conrad view of the human condition and trials of the human spirit makes his work still relevant today, and to have the opportunity to ask him to break down modern society would be very enlightening and entertaining to say the least.”
Jupiter In Velvet drives with what initially feels like a classic rock & roll sound – vintage crackles and a strong, raspy vocal lead the way. As this album progresses though, the strength of the songwriting takes centre stage far more noticeably than anything else.
Straight Six take you back a couple of decades with authentically fast-paced, gritty rock & roll on this album – the sort that fills you with fire and an energetic lust for life. Full Circle hits hard from the offset.
Ed Hale is a fantastic songwriter – this album is driven by a fine fusion of this and a totally enjoyable, eclectic and impressive array of musicianship. Hale’s voice offers a certain meeting between indie-rock grit and singer-songwriter delicacy, the songs feel upbeat but calm – energizing yet welcoming.
