This week, after a lot of changes in our schedule and in our plans, we needed calm, powerful riffs and a touch of pop. A mix that our selection for this new music Friday perfectly represents. Flashes.
BARNYARD – GOOD MORNING
After a long day, both mentally and physically draining, Barnyard, Good Morning’s new album, is a real treat. Too Young To Quit brings a touch of motivation to an atmosphere made of uncertainties. Guitars are soft, drums are discreet and the vocals peaceful. Beautifully catchy (Wahlberg, Burning), with surprising harmonies (Matthew Newton, I’ve Been Waiting, Country), it sounds like holidays are around the corner, or, more likely, a very good weekend. Soothing, the songs are rather shorts and yet manage to tell a lot.
LUNACY – MUDDIBROOKE
The powerful vocals of MuddiBrooke are grasping. Every emotion is getting intense and guitars are following with simple melodies, heavily inspired by grunge and metal. The strength of their new EP, Lunacy, mainly comes from there. The British trio, 100% female, has a lot of energy to give away and for a young band, this EP is a really good start. Straight Jacket and Devil are the most noticeable, but Fake It and Liverpool Guy also deserve our attention for their beautiful notes. A band to keep an eye on.
BREAKING POINT – JACKSON+SELLERS
A great majority of the notes, clearly coming from the sixties, are aligning with the upbeat tempo of the first track The Devil Is An Angel. Slowly, but surely, this tempo and these notes are distilled into the rest of the record, Breaking Point. We go from Hush and Fair Weather to the delicious Wound Up flawlessly. The female duet Jackson+Sellers, whom we weren’t expecting, has blown our minds with intelligence and musical savoir-faire. Hopefully, this is just the start and we hope the collaboration will be offering more in the future. We’re certain of it: we want more.
