10. Trees[engl] The new Shifting Sands album is available! A few words about the band? Shifting Sands feature losers from SixFtHick, Gentle Ben & his Sensitive Side, (Dave McCormack &) the Polaroids, Family Jordan and Jeremy Neale Band. They are good for pretty much nothing except for creating warmth in an emergency situation by way of fuelling fire, or accenting or emphasising an important point during an argument or domestic dispute by way of smashing into kindling. At least that was what Geoff Corbett (SixFtHick, The Tremors), lead vocalist of Shifting Sands thought, but just like so many times across his career of “blink and you’ll miss it” highs and extended lows that would crush a purpose built mini-sub through sheer and immense pressure he would be proven wrong. Step into the downward spotlight Dylan McCormack (Gentle Ben & his Sensitive Side, David McCormack & the Polaroids) and take that abortion of pine and tinsel and pluck forth from it songs that don’t suck, are not Alt. country nor singer songwriterly but speak of but two things: Sex and Sadness – the Shifting Sands mantle. Bread and butter if you will, except in this instance the bread has a hard on and is trying to kiss you and the butter is drunk, sobbing and cutting itself with a sharpened piece of broken C.D case. Clearer? Anyway the resulting recordings captured the depression, anxiety and anger dredged up by severe alcohol withdrawal and just a little bit of love. “Hibiscus” is born!

Or a Gris-Gris charm made of dirty swamp water, a pinch of graveyard dirt, a few bottles of Whisky & Gin, The Devil and Sin, stirred with a handful of rooster feathers- until mixed well... CHICKEN SNAKE was founded in 2009 by Jerry Teel ( Honeymoon Killers, Boss Hog, Chrome Cranks, Knoxville Girls, Jerry Teel & The Big City Stompers ) and his wife and songwriting partner, Pauline Teel ( Jerry Teel & The Big City Stompers ). The band has included many musicians along the way, as The Teels have wandered through the big cities and waded through the backwoods swamps, while longing to return to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. "You Must Be The Devil" is Chicken Snake 5th album, you need to get yourself a copy!

Recorded in a magical shack right on the beach north of San Francisco JACARANDA BLUE is full of ocean California sunshine and MR. AIRPLANE MAN's unique dark sounds. The first song explodes on the A-side with the crackling ALAN VEGA slash JOHN LEE HOOKER inspired freak-out of Blues and lust "I'm In Love" and weaves through MORPHINE-ish atmospheres, swampy DR. JOHN type hoodoo, dark JESSE MAE HEMPHILL inspired trance Blues and dance floor Soul rockers. Deep Blues and garage Punk fans will delight in this latest adult dose of sex and magic conjured from earthly rhythms and ethereal desire. MR. AIRPLANE MAN is back, and more powerful than ever before. Available in the USA on Sympathy For The Record Industry, Beast Records make “Jacaranda Blue” available for Europe. The album comes with a different sleeve as well as a slightly different tracklisting.

08. Lucia[engl] Hoa Queen is a flower that comes from abroad. Bold and white, it breaks through the night before dying in the pale morning light. A beauty just given and already gone. Its petals will never taste the dew. Hoa Queen is one, all, or several women. The one screaming her pain, the one spitting her anger, the one that daydreams on a cell bench. An army of wounded bodies and wandering souls marching with grace through a scarlet night. A parade of damaged silhouettes dancing along with the intensity of despair. Marjorie, awaiting for death in a row, Lucia, giving away her flesh and self for money, Aileen taking her preys to the edges of a wood. Lizzie, Willow, Betty… Hoa Queen tells their stories, writes them on skins and strings. 5 musicians who have already been playing here and there, together and apart. 5 musicians carried by the whispers of those broken women, tuned to emotions, walking on a tightrope to create music coming from a deep place that smells like cotton, mud, sun and night, tears and blood.
- 01. Human
09. Wife[engl]Once the intro to opener “Human” gives way to its fully-realized sonic purpose, it’s obvious that Harlan T. Bobo’s fourth proper album, A History of Violence, is quite different from his previous body of work. The classic historical emotional heft of a songwriter trying to make sense of life’s chaos, think mid-70s Lou Reed, especially Coney Island Baby, is a thread that can be heard running through the album’s mid-tempo tracks like “Human” and the miniature literary tragedy that is “Nadine”. The punchier tracks on the album, like “Spiders”, might conjure very early Green On Red, what X’s mid-80s output could have been, or even the roots-rock tendencies of overlooked genius, Cass McCombs. A History of Violence still highlights Bobo’s whiskey-and-cigarette-informed vocal style, and on the more intimate tracks, it’s a distorted ear candy that warbles into increasingly sunken, uncomfortable places, like that of the songwriter with which comparisons have followed Bobo throughout his career: the late Leonard Cohen. But there is a richer canvas on which to work this time out, not to mention a decidedly heavier and darker one. The album was recorded in Memphis with Doug Easley, who has previously worked with Cat Power, Pavement, Wilco, Sonic Youth, Jon Spencer, and Jeff Buckley.

Rhyece O'Neill taught Rick (bass) the songs a couple of weeks prior though Danny (drums) had never heard any of them until the day of the session. Once they had the right sound and were ready to go Rhyece would teach Danny and Rick the songs in the studio kitchen with an acoustic guitar. After a beer they were ready. They would go in and Nell (Engineer) would roll the tape. They never did more than three takes. Once a song was done they would go back to the kitchen, have another beer and learn another song. They recorded fifteen songs this way.

Recorded over 3 different sessions, one in Memphis and two in Toronto, CATL. wanted to make a record that allowed each engineer to interpret the songs in their own way. Adam Hill at Sam Phillips Studio, Jeff McMurrich at Sonology, and Walter Sobczak at Revolution Recording had no idea what the other engineer was up to and were left alone to do their thing. Garage Rock legend Jim Diamond (of the now defunct Ghetto Recorders studio in Detroit) brought it all together in the mastering process, somewhere in France.
- [engl] From the opening track Hanging Church (feat Spencer P. Jones with a trademark solo) The Braves take you on a sonic ride that will convince you that they are on the up. Formed late 2012 on the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia, The Braves came cutting through the surrounding noise to create a sound and a notoriety that is uniquely their own. Starting with Djesse Bolte on bass and Kelly Watson on guitar, the two quickly found the drummer to suit in Ethan Leversha, the last outcast in town. With a mission statement fully in tact and the sound to follow The Braves started playing every opportunity they got from warehouse parties to backwash bars, artist collectives to the deserts and anarchist centres while building the ever-evolving mould of their music.

This record takes the music away from that and creates something even more compelling. His vocal changes too, it’s not just that gargling gravel and petrol growl. He sings and even croons... The music has moved forward too, oh the blues are still there, and, trust me, they are just as harsh and demented as before. But there’s more in Skeleton Coast!

12 Swampland[engl] Revolving around singer/songwriters Johanna Brockman and her partner Dimitri Kucharzewski, Midnight Scavengers are a unique and compelling presence. Situated between sinister violent beauty and volatile fragmented shyness, Johanna Brockman, once a member of James McCann’s Dirty Skirt Band, and The Brian Hooper Band (who opened for Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds on their 2009 Tour) met up with now partner in songs Dimitri Kucharzewski (Nikki Sudden’s Last Bandits, The Hollowmen) in Berlin in 2011 to create the core of what would become Midnight Scavengers. After relocating to Melbourne in 2012, they grew to a five piece with the addition of Jeff Hooker (Brian Hooper’ s band, Kim Salmon, The Darling Downs) on bass, Tim O’Shannassy (MJ Halloran, Paradise Motel, Penny Ikinger) on drums, and Andrew Watson (The Man Who Wasn’t There, Charlie Marshall) on violin and guitar. Midnight Scavengers have become an extremely well respected and recognized band, playing alongside legendary figures such as Spencer P. Jones, Kim Salmon, Hugo Race and Ron S. Peno among others.

Their debut LP was recorded at Kerwax by Christophe Chavanon and here comes a raw and minimalist pop magnified by a delicate and ethereal female voice reminding of the ghosts of Young Marble Giant, The Vaselines or Rowland S. Howard.

- [engl] Just one year after the release of their album "Bird of Prey", a rich year of touring, it is the release in Europe and the USA of their 3rd album "The Biggest Sound". We are proud to present ESCOBAR. It is a duet formed by Rémi (of Weird'Omen / Anomalys) and Charly (of the mythical band of the 90s The Bushmen / Daria). ESCOBAR rings the era of the return of Lo-Fi, the Grunge !!! "Wild and frenetic on stage, swing a punk electrified grunge garage and songs that remain in the head". In any case, experts in the field, Heatwave, Mowno or even Still In Rock agree that the band has experience of its influences and rewards to the minimalist, minimalist, a Rock'n'Roll Without concession and without plagiarism!
- [engl] ”What we do is a secret, what we do is a hoax,” sings The Toxics on their debut album. There were no secrets or hoaxes in the making of the album but there were a lot of changes. The Toxics is the love child of the singer Jens Hortling and the guitarist Ilkka Luttinen. It had always been a trio playing primitive garage rock. But in the years 2016 and 2017 the band had to reinvent itself. First they drafted a new guitarist Juha Laine and then they started to make a record. The sound of that record would be different from the old Toxics and not only because they brought a bass to the line up. The first album has escaped from the garage towards more nuanced spaces. There’s pub rock, power pop and influences from 1960’s garage rock. Hortling’s voice and Luttinen’s guitar are recognizable but other than that the band sounds new. In the year 2017 The Toxics have five members. Hortling sings, Luttinen and Laine play guitar, Ari-Pekka Heinola is on bass and Riku Korhonen on drums. The song on which they sing about secrets and hoaxes is called: Secret. The Toxics may have stumbled but they never fell. They believe in the power of rock. Mastered by Tim Warren.
