Rock music is always a yes. And not once or twice but thrice this week! We’re having a blast. An EP and two LPs are on the menu today, and they’re fresh, they’re incredible, and they’re out. Flashes.
FACTORY – NO MONEY KIDS
Associating blues to electro is a risky bet. No Money Kids comes centre stage, right in between these two, with great subtility, and links them with success through their new album Factory. Guitars are deep, basses are heavy, the tone has something only blues can give you, but sometimes, a track thinks out of the box and gets noticed as it unveils its strong EDM side. It’s a peculiar landscape, between futurism and traditional folk of which Angel Dust and Why I’m so Cold are great examples. Our favourite is the beautiful Shine a Light.
WAITING FOR NOTHING – PAVE THE JUNGLE
A bit chaotic, Pave The Jungle’s new EP Waiting For Nothing is as surprising as it is satisfying when we listen to it. This chaos, we embrace it and adore it, even when it unsettles us. We actually are attached to it for these unexpected and uncertain moments, lasting a split second, just enough to give more amplitude and layers to these four tracks. We’re warming up to Moirai, Oddball unleashes us, Lucky Ones is a wild card with a free spirit and Picture of Health closes it with intensity.
LITTLE ODETTA – LITTLE ODETTA
A strong start, powerful and charming vocals: Little Odetta is treating us with their eponymous album. It’s a truly beautiful rock discovery. We love the aesthetics and atmospheres coming out of the sharp and bold guitars. Make Up Your Mind sings Little Odetta… and we have, very fast, as we get into this obvious new rock, blues and pop classic. The songs, following one another smoothly, are enchanting us, especially with quiet ones like Waiting For The Sun. Our favourites are a lot louder though, like No Denying, Keep Up (Can We?) and the diabolical Roller Coaster. Fantastic.
