Under the Radar Pt.20

Most interesting and promising contemporary german band I know of these days. Coming from Munich they write another chapter of the City´s history of music coming from an intellectual background. The lyrics contain few words that are chosen perfectly to create a feeling of anger and resistance. The singer uses her unique voice opposite to most other female singers these days. No seduction, no hip depression, no artificial insecurity - just angry fire. Like ... read more

The river of timeless sounds flows through this music.
A female Band from Niger recorded during a concert in Brooklyn. While listening I was sure that this is a field recording. It captures an atmosphere that makes you see the stars in a dark desert night while the musicians pay tribute to all music that was before them to continue this music until doomsday. Rating this music is almost impossible because it feels healthy for the soul.

I don´t know nothing about 60´s Garage Rock from Cambodia that got destroyed by Khmer Rouge. But I know a great Band when I listen to one. In case you´re in the mood for extra spicy 60´s influenced psychedelic Pop give this a try. Songs in English and Cambodian. Great female and male vocals, overflowing arrangements that maintain an amateurish enthusiasm. Extremely pleasant.

Check Cement Slippers or Only a Friend as teasers. I´m sure you´ll go for the ... read more

Pleasure Venom deliver an entertaining hate anthem whilst ploughing through the field of 80´s US hardcore

I'm bored and so decided to make another community list; this time,

What is a record you believe has defined its genre albeit through exemplifying its sound, shaping said genre, or has established said genre in popularity and/or existence, and why?

No Problem! When you get a chance give this a score too if you would, total genre change to some singer-songwriter driven folk pop / folk rock.

Highly recommended new release. Sophomore release from Desmond Hatch, along the lines of a poppy, meditative Mother Earth's Plantasia by Mort Garson. Like the first, meditative, earthy tones in a playful synthwave, electronic atmosphere. Dipping into indie-tronica and ambient.

About

human, born in the booming years of the last century, playing music and listening to music for half a century. I listen to anything that touches me, still curious... I usually hate music as a tapestry satisfying my need to hear sounds that keep me safe due to cliches I already heard before.

Most of my ratings will be very good as I mostly rate things that I want to support due to their quality.

I will skip most of my dislikes as long as I´m not confronted by them on a daily basis (tx kids)
