Singles Round-up: Slowcoaches, Nnux, Hot Soles

    Slowcoaches – Complex After last year’s brutal Nothing Gives, Slowcoaches come back with a savage track, ‘Complex’. The slow build-up is akin to getting a late night notification in a quake app: something comes and it will rattle the place. The lesson from the track? That’s for you to find, but here’s my take: Be wary of “nice guys” bearing gifts, for theirs … Continue reading Singles Round-up: Slowcoaches, Nnux, Hot Soles

Stream: Sundiver – Caravelle/Discoverer

As announced recently, Sundiver‘s magic bag of spacerock tricks is ready to burst. ‘Caravelle’ taps into an endless source of energy, cycling through raw emotions. It builds up a comedown that shakes wistfulness away with great acumen. Whereas ‘Caravelle’ goes for the slow build, ‘Discoverer’ is a straight rocker. Sharp, lean and right on target. Two masterful  hors-d’oeuvres to keep us while the new album breaks free.   Continue reading Stream: Sundiver – Caravelle/Discoverer

Greetings, readers who took the jam out of my doughnut. You’re going to hell! Welcome to another edition of our “off again, off again, hey it’s on again!” single reviews column. Granted, some of them aren’t singles, but I liked them and made my stupid human collaborators review ’em. Mahalo. 

This week’s singles come courtesy of the sexy voice of K-Billy Super Sounds of the 70s. Now, put down that razor blade, let the cop walk away and boogey down to Morrison’s and buy me more doughnuts. Or else all your music will turn into 5 hours of Chris Martin yodelling.

Ah, singles, right:

This week’s singles come courtesy of The Hillside 19 mob, comprised of ninja penguins, barbarian seals, kamikaze sea lions and a rather handsome manatee. Oh, the manatee! How it hates us! Go listen to Gallops, btw. Back? Cool, now stand upside. Wave to the crowd. Get roses, kiss the girl (or boy or significant other) and now jump through hoops to get your creme egg.

This week’s singles come courtesy of WorkForce, because we all mofos here are writing for gratis. Grumble, grumble. We are the 99%, as in, we like to sing “99 luftballoons, ich bin ein ausgangeeeer!” while playing hopscotch against the ghost of DeForest Kelley. He’s quite the sport.

This week’s singles are double-double, so watch out for that trans fat in our delicious cuts of smoked shoegazing bacon. Mind the indie dance chicken. And for Krist Novoselic‘s sake, don’t throw your bass in the air, you might end up writing political science for the rest of your life while you wallow in self-pity on that day you said no to a high paying job packing foodstuffs in orange bags at Sainsbury’s.

This week’s singles come courtesy of Mexico‘s own Safari Tacos. Great food, so-so service, great memories. Go for a Quesafari al Pastor, which basically is a big arse quesadilla with pastor meat (the non-unionised Mexican equivalent of kebab meat). It fucking rules and best of all: it has a lot of piña (that’s pineapple in Spanish).

This week’s singles come courtesy of Top Gear‘s delicious chili con carne. Now, if I could be any of them, I would be James May. He’s the intelligent one of the bunch. Although, how intelligent can he be while still tolerating Clarkson? The mind boggles. As much as Basil Brush‘s brush. That is not a double-entendre.

This week’s singles come courtesy of Billy Joel‘s fantastic music and the realisation that him and Michael Keaton look quite similar, especially in the 80s.  I’m supercereal, you guys. With bananas, skimmed milk and maraschino cherries.
