MeMe Detroit Return as “Mean Rock n Rollers” in New Single

Rock, Rock n Roll, Singer-Songwriter

MeMe Detroit’s new single brings about the classic sounds and angry vibes that you would typically get in an archetypal ‘Rock n Roll’ song.

Describing it as a ”Calling” and a ”Deep Lifestyle” within the lyrics, ‘Mean Rock n Roller’ was written as an anthem to anyone who feels pressurised to adapt and conform to societal ideals.

Mean Rock N Roller is a bit of a tongue-in-cheek song that we had written as a bit of fun but at the same time says ‘fuck you’ to the limiting beliefs that are pressed on us by society as we grow up. You can basically be, do or have anything you want in life when you put your mind to it, so never settle. It’s pointless”.

They are currently rallying their fans to help put together a music video, whilst keeping them entertained with a constant supply of new music via exclusive streams on social media.

Nonviolenze Takes Us Deeper In Life With New Album ‘Ghosts of War’

Acoustic, Jazz

Texas based Nonviolenze seems to dabble in all arts.

Whether it be music, paintings and poetry, Nonviolenze continues to amaze and enchant his fans with his many projects. He hopes to continue this with his new album ”Ghost of War.”

Touching upon subjects such as poverty, politics, human rights and equality, “Ghosts of War” combines nine tracks which challenge our social norms and provides an alternative perspective on different aspects of life.

Tracks that stick to mind on this Album are ‘Electron’ and the eponymous title track on the album. The former takes us through the transience of everything around us and explores what everything really means with a really futuristic and astronomic vibe and sound.

It’s unusual yet soothing sound helps the listener to think and take a look at life which is maybe what Nonviolenze wanted.

The video for Electron can be watched here:

Ghosts of War on the other hand explores and questions how religion and scriptures often lead to more division, hate and war.

Again Nonviolenze masters the art of atmosphere with the constant strokes of the acoustic guitar in sporadically spaced timing across the song.

Even though it is intended to be acoustic, it can give the listener nostalgic country vibes which helps to understand and interpret the poignant messages that are in the song.

The highly anticipated album ‘Ghosts of War’ can be streamed below:

Tod Almond releases tantalising tease track in step towards new album

Music, Rock

On September 4th, Tod Almond releases his latest single, ‘Start Again’ in a bid to tease us of the release of his debut album ‘If Only You Could See’ which is set to drop on 2nd October. This is a hugely welcome return to his classic rock song-writing and guitar prowess.

Almond is based in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire and has stuck true to the maxim, “do what makes you happy!” Teaching himself guitar as a teenager, he became hugely attached to his first acoustic guitar, then moving on to electric guitar, bass and drums – developing and understanding of each instrument intuitively and learning by ear.

“My children keep asking me, ‘When will you be on Spotify?’ I said, ‘It won’t be long. They just want me to be something. I really want them to hear, see and feel my happiness”

Tod almond

The single is a true, raw, down to Earth example of a classic rock tune – filled with searing solo’s and hard-rock hooks, you will be drawn to listen again and again.

Make sure to follow Tod on social media to be the first to hear about the release of ‘Start Again’ on September 4th and album ‘If Only You Could See Me’ on October 2nd.

Lui Krieg Makes It Crystal Clear On Remaining Stress & Worry Free

mens health week

For many of us during lockdown, it’s been difficult to fill the void and escape our thoughts from time to time. Musician and therapist, Lui Krieg has been exploring new coping mechanisms for this – which we can all make a note of.

This has seen us exploring and finding plenty of different ways to take our minds away for a while – endless banana bread, Joe Wicks’ workouts, TikToks that will last a lifetime; whatever it is, I am sure that crystal and sound therapy wasn’t up there!

Lui Krieg has had 20 years of working with crystals in sound as a therapist and musician, where he has earned a vast amount of experience of many conditions whether physical, emotional or mental.

‘I have helped many clients.. by getting them to work with the right minerals and to the time to meditate.. once people connect deeper to their spiritual selves they will automatically become more health conscious.. and will interact with their environment in a different way.’

Lui krieg

It is believed that Quartz has the ability to store data for up to 3 MILLION years, meaning that if it works for you it might definitely be a long-term option.

Crystals in sound is another area that we could all access, from crystal singing bowls, pyramids, shamanic drums, Tibetan singing bowls and the King of the sacred sounds – a Paiste gong. This sound therapy is said to clear and activate people’s energy fields – if this helps you to feel clear and empowered , I would say we should all be giving it a try!

LESSER GLOW: Cvlt Nation Debuts Nullity Full-Length From Atmospheric Doom/Sludge Metal Practitioners

Rock

Cvlt Nation is currently streaming Nullity, the latest full-length from atmospheric doom/sludge metal practitioners LESSER GLOW in its confounding entirety. The debut comes in of the eve of the LP’s official release via Pelagic Records.

With Nullity, LESSER GLOW rips open a massively wide and confident blend of traditional doom meets melodic metal, paired with the likes of hardcore, post hardcore, noise rock, post rock, and beyond. Molding all these into one cohesive mix, LESSER GLOW stands out as a refreshing and unapologetic ally brutal take on heavy music.

Issues the band, “Nullity was a chance for us to expand ideas we began with Ruined. There was never a finite idea in mind, neither for the band nor the record, and throughout the writing process we tried to explore that; follow the excitement, pull from all angles of influence, and push the dynamics and sounds to new territories.”

Adds Cvlt Nation,“There may have been a time in human history where, as a species, we understood ourselves as part of a whole; one part of a symbiotic relationship with the planet. But those days have been lost to most of us. Now we’re a scourge; parasites that feed off the corpses of every other living thing on earth but most of all, ourselves. That idea is what breathed diseased life into the new album from LESSER GLOW, and the dissonance and wrath wash over me in waves while I listen to this filthy slab of sludge!”

Stream LESSER GLOW’s Nullity via Cvlt Nation HERE.


LESSER GLOW’s Nullity will be released on CD, LP, and digital formats. For preorders, go to THIS LOCATION

David Crosby Will Reissue CPR’s Two Studio Albums, Plus Two Live Album Via BMG

News

After being a part of two of rock & roll’s most foundational bands (the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash, respectively), and four years removed from a life-saving liver transplant, David Crosby channeled the creative frustration he had been feeling into CPR’s 1998 self-titled debut. Joined by noted session guitarist Jeff Pevar and Crosby’s recently reunited son James Raymond, the trio crafted smart, heady, jazz-indebted rock that showcased their stunning harmonies. They followed that three years later with 2001’s Just Like Gravity, an album that refined the burgeoning trio’s sound. On May 15th, BMG will reissue CPRJust Like Gravity and the group’s two live album – Live at Cuesta College and Live at the Wiltern. All four albums will be available digitally, and CPR and Just Like Gravity will be available on CD July 31st, with liner notes written by Steve Silberman, the award-winning science writer who hosted the illuminating Freak Flag Flying podcast with Crosby from earlier this year.

“CPR was me realizing that the world of CSN and Y was getting old and stuck in its place and that I needed to still keep moving,” says Crosby. “That I had more and different music in me that needed room to grow and stretch. CPR was me finding my son James and realizing pretty quickly that he was an even better musician that I was, and that he was rapidly becoming the best writing partner I’d ever had. CPR was a wonderful chemistry that has now become the Sky Trails band. I don’t think very many people heard these records, and I do think that they are some of the best work I’ve been involved with. Enjoy.”

Still on the road with CSN – but as Crosby says merely “turning on the smoke machines and playing the hits” – the two-time rock & roll hall of famer wanted an outlet for his still churning creativity. After meeting Raymond for the first time shortly after his liver transplant, the pair discovered a creative chemistry neither saw coming. They went on a songwriting spree, and after recruiting Pevar, went on to make CPR. After a series of successful tours, they went back into the studio to record Just Like Gravity. And by opening himself up to working with younger artists to help stoke his creative fires, Crosby’s recent late-career resurgence – highlighted by 2014’s Croz, 2016’s Lighthouse, 2017’s Sky Trails and 2018’s Here If You Listen – can really be traced back to working with Raymond and Pevar in CPR.

CPR was very much a precursor to Crosby’s acclaimed Sky Trails album and the ace live band that grew out of that album, both of which feature Pevar and Raymond. Spin called Sky Trails Crosby’s “most stylistically diverse and sonically lush solo album,” while the Associated Press called it “an excellent batch of tunes.” In many ways, CPR and Just Like Gravity were albums that pushed against what was popular in rock at the time – CPR going up against the nu-metal wave of the late 90’s, and Just Like Gravity coming at the beginning of the turn of the century “rock revival” led by acts like the Strokes and the White Stripes. Crosby, Pevar and Raymond weren’t chasing after the flavor of the day or trying to recreate old glories, they simply followed their muse, trends be damned.

As Silberman says in the liner notes for the Just Like Gravity reissue, “CPR and Just Like Gravity were two of the most powerful and personal records Crosby made in his celebrated career, but they flew under most critics’ radar and quickly went out of print. The lessons that Crosby learned by opening up his creative process, however, made possible later collaborative breakthroughs like Croz, Sky Trails, Lighthouse, and Here If You Listen. Far from done at this point, his best work was still ahead of him.”

AN INTRODUCTION OF ME AND THE REST

ME AND THE REST – the Hard Rock band from Zurich (Oberland region) on the road playing the Rock’n’Roll circus since 1991. With more than 6000 sold copies of their CDs and over 400 (and counting) performed concerts on that trail, they never once lost sight of their “long live Rock’n’Roll” vision.

Real, authentic and true-to-the-core, they celebrate their music with their signature riffs, wonderful hooklines and killer vocals. As supporting act of SOTO (Scandinavien Tour), Molly Hatchet, DORO, Krokus, Jane, Don Dokken, Rhino Bucket and many other well-known established groups, they grew to learn at the feet of the masters, polishing their live act to soon become the talk of their peers and many fans.

On stage, be it large or larger venues, they grew to reach their audiences’ inner hearts, drawing them into the magic of, as how they see it, the Rock’n’Roll dream. Whether it was the stage of the Hard Rock Café in Oslo, the Hall of Fame in Wetzikon, Z7 in Pratteln, the Alpenrock House in Zürich, the Albani-Club in Winterthur, the Open-Air Appenzell or Europe’s biggest Biker meeting in Sumiswald (Bern), ME AND THE REST really rocked them till they dropped. With consistently positive concert critiques, strong newspaper and genre magazine reviews about their CD releases, they placed themselves as a musical pearl in the demanding world of Hard Rock.

The band name stands for “All for one and one for all”; Three men and a woman – all focused on “one goal, one family, one band”. Each band member is simultaneously me and the rest. It is clear for all in this ‘family’ that there is no place or room for egocentricity. They stand both close and true to the fountainhead of Rock music. Rock’n’Roll leaps instinctively from the guts of each member. Their love of the art form and its message clearly envelopes everyone that hears their music. The spirit of Rock feeds the audience as well as the band itself and is reflected in both their music and words. Driving anthemic riffs, bodies drenched in sweat, they live their lives for that hunger and that fire. That’s what Rock’n’Roll truly is all about.

Central American band ready to rock the world with new video

Rock

Native to El Salvador, Steady Rollin’ are the rock band you need to listen to this year. They have just released their video to their latest single, “Impossible”, the long-overdue return to the powerful combination of blues, rock and story-telling lyrics which characterized such musical behemoths as Led Zeppelin and Cream.

Taken from their forthcoming album, Love & Loss, “Impossible” follows on from the hugely popular track “When the Judgement Comes” and its super-charged dance remix courtesy of Elyse Rich, set a course from 80s synth pop to modern flourishes of stomping delight, all wrapped around the pounding, relentless rock of Steady Rollin’. Love & Loss is the first full release from Steady Rollin’, 10 tracks which tell love-related stories from lead singer Fernando’s real-life experiences to a musical backing which twists between emotional blues, agile, sinuous rock and a squall of alternative power.

The rock band, comprising Benjamin Andrade (brand ambassador for Yamaha drums) on drums and backing vocals, Gerardo Pardo on bass and Fernando Poma (known best as hugely influential businessman, Managing Director of the largest hotel operators in Latin-American, Real Hotels and Resorts and director at Grupo Poma, champion of El Salvadorian music scene) on guitar and lead vocals, have already captured the hearts of minds of audiences across their native El Salvador and South America and now look to spread their message to the rest of the world. 

Get to know the guys more on their social channels below and enjoy their new video ahead of their album release later on this year.

Be prepared to be cast under rock magician Tadini’s spell

Rock

Fresh from playing in rock bands all over the world, Tadini is a one-man army of sound you won’t want to silence this Spring as he releases his new single, The Arsonist. 

Armed with a guitar, a phalanx of Moogs, the odd Mellotron and a theremin set to ‘stun’, Tadini is a one-man band, drawing deeply from the musical wells of Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and the maelstrom of rhythms and melodies from his native Brazil. Turn up the volume to 13, switch on the lava lamp and get your orders in at the virtual bar, this a glorious nod to the rock giants of old and a first glimpse at a modern musical magician at work.

Listen to the teaser for Tadini’s debut single, The Arsonsit

Once you listen to his music, it won’t surprise you that Tadini comes from a multicultural background. Born in Brazil to Italian parents…then going to a Chinese school where he learned to speak Mandarin…now settled in Los Angeles, it’s little wonder that Lucas Tadini’s music is a journey not only through his musical influences but also the sounds of the cultures he has been exposed to including Brazillian bands TüR and Mais 55 and Skunk Oil in LA. 

A fascinating character and one that you’ll definitely want to keep an eye on this year as he prepares to release his debut album Collective Delusion. But, whilst you wait, follow the newest rockstar through the links below to keep up to date with his latest releases…
