Combine in highball glass with ice and serve.

‘A gorgeous debut’ Line of Best Fit 

The understated delivery enhances the power of the songwriting’ Clash

‘I Found My Limit’ – https://soundcloud.com/whippedcreamrecords/blue-house-i-found-my-limit

Subtle, elliptical and ambiguous, ‘Suppose’ is the debut full-length from London based duo Blue House. Released on August 27th via Arp Cleveland (Archie Bronson Outfit) and Kristian Robinson’s (Capitol K) Whipped Cream Records (Loose Meat, Super Best Friends Club, Bas Jan,) the album presents us with a world of haunted pop — songs about people just departed, places just left, and events just witnessed. It is a world in which an under-the-surface quotidian terror might make strange all sorts of objects: PlayStation games, postcards, grasshoppers and euphoniums all find their way on to the record.

Comprised of James Howard and Ursula Russell, formerly of groups Fiction and Drop Out Venus, Blue House is a more refined affair than either of the duo’s past projects. The band in earnest probably began with a drunken duet of Patsy Cline’s ‘Walking In The Moonlight’, sang on top of a rickety table at a house party in 2015. Something of that country sensibility remains in songs like ‘Ear To The Door’, that finds Ursula and James harmonising a song about domesticity and wandering, a theme that resurfaces throughout the record (‘John the Unready / had a little baby girl last night / now he’s halfway across the countryside / saying something’s calling me.’)

’Suppose’ is rarely an obvious beast, the fragile balance of atmospherics and presence lending the record an understated and entrancing numinous-ness throughout. Leaving no stone unturned, the duo wilfully explores the intricacies of pop, with an emphasis on deft poetics and quality song writing. Whilst debut single ‘Hot Air Balloons’ brims with jangling 90’s chords, its follow up ’Simple Song’ is a delicate affair — a 70’s folk-revival lullaby, radiating with simplistic charm. The newly founded Whipped Cream’s philosophy of unifying an emerging generation of English musicians with the means to remain independently-minded makes their label a fitting home for ‘Suppose’.

The artwork continues the band’s collaboration with London based artist Phillip Reeves.

Blue House play the following dates:

Blissfields Festival, Winchester – 1st July

Dalston Victoria, London –13th July

Servant Jazz Quarters, London – 21st July

End of the Road Festival, Wiltshire – 4th September

Camden punk band Healthy Junkies to release new album

Booze? Bottle of Jack.

Healthy Junkies are an antidote to a generation that’s numbed by televised talent shows by reviving the punk ethos of a time when Johnny Rotten walked down Kings Road with safety pins in his ear.

Their attitude and musical purity have earned them respect from some of their heroes such as Knox of The Vibrators, Charlie Harper of the UK Subs or Strokes producer Gordon Raphael with whom they have collaborated in the past. Describing the upcoming album ‘Box Of Chaos’, out on 20th February 2016, in their own words as a “journey which starts with a party that quickly turns to anger and dysfunction”, it is a punk statement that celebrates the values of liberty and standing up for yourself, especially in the wake of the recent terror attacks in Paris and the often imprisoning nature of a modern capitalist society. Their single ‘Watch Out’, out on 15th December 2015, paints a picture of our time in which public surveillance and dependence on technology have taken over our lives.

Formed in 2010 by UK born guitarist and singer Phil Honey-Jones and French singer Nina Courson, Healthy Junkies have established themselves in the punk scene after playing with bands such as The Damned, The Boomtown Rats, UK Subs, Walter Lure (former Heartbreakers), The Vibrators or TV Smith of The Adverts, to name a few. Over the last four years they were regular acts at Rebellion punk festival in Blackpool and have been played on various radio stations, such as TBFM which voted one of the songs on the album, ‘Danny Trash’, to number one a few weeks ago. Songwriters Nina and Phil are taking inspiration for their lyrics from everyday life, including the struggles that arise when a crazy rock’n’roll lifestyle gets to the point of mental instability and destructive behaviour. Channelling such impulses through creativity and making music is what the band uses as therapy.

Healthy Junkies at home

Healthy Junkies’ music thrives from a mixture of often distressing life experiences and musical proficiency. Lyricist Nina has been forced to live under harsh conditions from an early age after she left home at the age of 14 and ended up living with a Muslim transvestite in Paris’ red light district Montmartre, eventually falling into the abyss of drug consumption in the realm of shady characters. Meeting Phil in 2008 has turned her life around and she started focussing her energy on creating music. As a band they have also started promoting their own regular club night called Punk’n’Roll Rendevouz at a venue in Camden which has been going for over three years now. It has been a meeting place for the UK’s underground scene ever since.

Phil started to play cello at the age of six before he moved onto guitar and discovered punk rock. His previous band Nurotica has been acknowledged by influential DJs ranging from John Peel to Rodney Bingenheimer. Personal experiences play an important part of the Healthy Junkies’ songs. The new album is especially a diary of the last two years on the road – some of the tracks were literally made up on stage. It is a document of emotional stories as well as an observation of the times we live in wrapped up in a dynamic rock’n’roll sound that touches upon influences from bands such as Nirvana, The Sex Pistols, Blondie or Elastica.

 

The single ‘Watch Out’ is out on 15th December 2015, the album ‘Box Of Chaos’ is out on 20th February 2016.

Mechanical Man could be Russia’s answer to Metallica

Booze? Jack Daniels.

Quoted by webzine Prog Sphere as an album that “is comprised of everything an album must include, and that is energy, powerful performance, melody, [and] well-thought songwriting” Mechanical Man’s eight track release moves between the spheres of traditional heavy metal aggression and melodic experimentalism as epitomised by the eponymous opening track ‘Mechanical Man’:

Since their formation in 2012 the band consisting of Alex Zefiridis (vocals), Serj Danilov (guitars), Alexander Lee (bass), Vitaly Ostrov (drums) and Eugeny Komarov (keyboards) have made a name for themselves among some well known musicians in the metal scene. The professionalism of their music has been acknowledged by some of their main influences such as Elias Viljanen of Sonata Arctica, a band who they supported, as well as Peter Hallaraker of Leprous who they played alongside with at Metropolis Fest in Minsk, Belarus, earlier this year. The single ‘Madhouse’ which was released in June 2014 was produced by none other than producer Hiili Hiilesmaa who is known to have worked with bands like HIM, Lordi, Apocalyptica, Moonspell or Amorphis in the past. Click here to have a listen:

band

The music is underpinned by Alex’ emotionally strong and at the same time heavily muscular vocals. Adding the warmer sounds of Eugeny’s keyboard riffs to the overall energetic masculinity of their sound has earned the band compliments across a range of reviews. One of the leading  underground rock websites, The Moshville Times, has praised the record as one of the most exciting upcoming albums which is marked by a maturity that suggests that the band has been around for a lot longer than only three years.

Mechanical Man has started out as a project brought to life by guitarist Serj who has moved across the country from the Eastern outskirts of Russia to Moscow writing both the lyrics and musical arrangements for each instrument. Taking inspiration from artists such as Muse, Rush or Dream Theater is making a clear statement in the industry by showing that a Russian metal band can easily be up there with heavy, earthy rock music that’s coming out of Scandinavia and other countries.

The album ‘Mechanical Man’ will be out on 30th January 2016.

Lively redefines the rules of rap with new single release

Booze? Jaegerbomb.

Lively is a rapper who has entered the hip hop arena in the most proficient way being able to collaborate with some big names in the industry at this point of his career.

Taking his father’s  second cancer diagnosis in 2012 as a wake-up call the rapper has decided to truly devote himself to his music  which has paid off only very shortly afterwards. A trip to the US last year gave him the opportunity to record with one of the most influential hip hop producers of the past 20 years, Scott Storch who is widely known for having produced hit records for Beyonce, 50 Cent, Eminem, Busta Rhymes , Rick Ross, Chris Brown and Tyga amongst others. Next to Storch the rapper has worked with UK rapper Smiler TPM as well as MAC and G-Man of So Solid Crew and also Bizarre from the Detroit based rap group D-12. His first single release ‘Bad Influence’, is a solid proof for his quickly acquired professionalism.

The song is a testament to his way of life, affirming that he’s “moving in the fast lane, no slow ride.” No matter if people believe he’s a “bad influence on them”, Lively is bursting with determination and energy and there’s no going back.

Having built a foundation consisting of musical talent, dedication and hard work Lively has managed to get his first EP release in April 2015 into the best selling rap/ hip hop pre-orders on itunes without the help of any labels or major promotion.

His musical influences vary across the hip hop sphere as well as any other genres he comes across. Lively isn’t interested in copying other artists, he takes his inspiration mainly from everyday life experiences and his own imagination. The rapper, who has both Scottish and Indian roots, has shown perseverance in the ambition to mature his sound and an eagerness to learn from past mistakes. He took part in a rap battle at Jumpoff TV where he, in his own words, “failed epically” and got beaten by another contestant, who got into the season’s finals. But Lively decided to use his defeat in a positive way, cleaned up his act and is now back stronger than before: “The loss made me go back to the drawing board quite literally – new style, new sound, better punch lines.”  With an attitude like this there’s no doubt Lively will be here to stay for some time to come.

The single ‘Bad Influence’ is out on 13th February 2016.

Noel & the Pandas with ‘Whip Me’ single

Booze?

Vodka!

With a gritty, dirty groove pushed by chugging drums, distorted power chords and a spoken vocal that suits the style perfectly, it’s the latest addition to what is growing to be a very strong back catalogue.

Already marked out as the hottest new rock proposition from Italy, Noel and the Pandas continue to go from strength to strength. Produced by guitarist Nicola Rosti and with lyrics from band founder Noel, the debut album is a true labour of love from a songwriter whose outlook on life has changed dramatically in recent years

PRimage

An indie rock band with an unusually varied style, Noel and Pandas are an Italian group who revel in adding varied ideas and influences to a strong foundation of indie rock. With new album ‘In the Art of Doom’ already getting the band plenty of plaudits, the time has now come for the latest single release, the provocatively titled ‘Whip Me’.

His is a story of riches to rags. After a promising career as a banker was ended overnight, he has picked himself back up using nothing but his music and the experiences he has to write about. The power of music to move and transform those who make and hear it is often underestimated, but Noel is living proof that – with enough talent and determination – it’s possible to come back from the brink.

‘Whip Me’ is released on June 1st.

Retort Records – Various Artists

Which booze? Shots of Sambucca

These artists have produced music that is hard-hitting, sharp and to an acquired taste – just like a swig of Sambucca. The electronic and percussive fusion makes for an interesting listen and it is like nothing you’ll have heard before. Each with their own sound and direction, we recommend listening to each one separately to get a true taste of the music and fully understand what Retort are trying to achieve.
