    • Morrissey Shares New Song “Spent the Day in Bed,” Confirms Album Details
      Morrissey is releasing a new album, Low in High School, on November 17 via BMG and his own new label, Etienne. Now he has shared the album's first single, "Spent the Day in Bed." 
    • Strange Peace
      Like II, the third entry from METZ makes no compromises. The Canadian hardcore trio have an uncanny knack for capturing lightning in a bottle. Their sound lays the ferocity and unrelenting power of their live shows onto tape. To sacrifice that for more expansive, appeasing sounds would be to give up what makes METZ, METZ.
    • The Big Sick
      Who’d have thought comas and the prospect of being cast out of your family forever could be so funny, or so romantic? 
    • Fool’s Paradise
      After two albums, Cold Specks, the stage name used by Canadian singer/songwriter Ladan Hussein, still felt like a talent in search of a sound. Fool's Paradise doesn't do much to alter this situation, but it does allow Hussein to showcase the reason her embryonic style remains worth sticking with.
    • Sigur Rós Announce Initial Holiday Festival Lineup: Jarvis Cocker, Kevin Shields, and More
      Iceland's Sigur Rós previously announced Norður og Niður, a new festival at Reykjavik's Harpa venue from December 27 - 31. The band will perform four shows in Harpa's main hall, Eldborg (which has a capacity of only 1,500 per show), on December 27, 28, 29, and 30. 
    • Watch Madeline Kenney Get Splattered with Green Screen Paint in the “Always” Video

    • Wolf Alice Share New Album Opener “Heavenward”
      Britain's Wolf Alice are releasing their sophomore album, Visions of a Life, on September 29 via Dirty Hit/RCA. Now they have shared the album's opening cut, "Heavenward." Listen below followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.
    • Tegan and Sara Share CHVRCHES’ Cover of “Call It Off” from “The Con X: Covers” Album
      Tegan and Sara previously announced that they are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their album The Con with a tour and The Con X: Covers, an album due out October 20 (via Warner Bros) in which other artists cover each song on The Con, with all net proceeds going to the Tegan and Sara Foundation, which works in support of LGBTQ girls and women. 
    • Goon: Last of the Enforcers
      Goon: Last of the Enforcers attempts to recapture the magic, trying to show more is more, and less is more, while proving neither is more in this instance.
    • Elbow and John Grant Team Up for the “Kindling (Fickle Flame)” Video
      Elbow released a new album (their seventh), Little Fictions, back in February via Concord. A couple of weeks ago the band shared a new version of Little Fictions' closing track "Kindling." Renamed "Kindling (Fickle Flame)," this version is redone as a duet with John Grant. Now a video for the new version has been shared.

    • No, The North Doesn't Just Listen To Landfill Indie September 19, 2017
      And the South enjoys its fair share of appalling music...When the winner of this year’s Hyundai Mercury Prize was announced there was little surprise that it came from London. After all, the metropolis dominated the shortlist, with South London in particular asserting a kind of creative stranglehold on the final countdown. But, as Clash commented at the time […]
    • Listen: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - 'Little Thing Gone Wild' September 19, 2017
      Check it out now...Gone Wild San Francisco rockers Black Rebel Motorcycle Club return with new song ‘Little Thing Gone Wild’ – tune in now. The song is the first output from their new record ‘Wrong Creatures’ due out in January 2018. First, however, the band embark on an extensive UK tour next month. ‘Little Thing Gone Wild’ is the classic cacophony of gnarl […]
    • Premiere: Sweaty Palms - 'Queer Fatwa' September 19, 2017
      Dark post-punk from Glasgow...Sweaty Palms hail from Glasgow, a city with a seedy underbelly. The band seem to take this barely restrained aggression and channel it in their music, a dank, black-clad vision of post-punk bedlam. Antecedants could include everyone from The Fall to 80s Matchbox B-Line Disaster, a sound that is both violent and hilarious. Debut […]
    • Superfood - Bambino September 19, 2017
      A strutting dollop of funky indie-pop indulgence...Losing a band member has historically sparked chaos for many a well-seasoned band. Like Blur without Graham Coxon or the Red Hot Chili Peppers in the years after John Frusciante departed, their respective band’s output noticeably dipped and missed that vital spark that gave the bands their core identity. Thr […]
    • Jordan Rakei - Wallflower September 19, 2017
      A confident artistic expression from a talent in bloom...New Zealand’s Jordan Rakei has enjoyed a rapid ascension into the spotlight since he first moved to London in 2015. Having released debut EP ‘Franklin’s Room’ in 2013 from the confines of his Brisbane bedroom studio, he began to garner an influential following. Moving to the UK to widen his creative ho […]
    • A Rhythmic Rebellion: Clash Meets THEY. September 19, 2017
      "We don’t chase trends, because we want longevity..."An alternative to artists who follow the industry blueprint, churning out the “same old shit” on a conveyor belt, the ethos of THEY. (producer Dante Jones and vocalist Drew Love) is underscored by an unruly ambition to never sate but always challenge the status quo. “We don’t chase trends, becaus […]
    • Listen: Phobophobes - 'Where Is My Owner' September 19, 2017
      Recorded somewhere beneath the Brixton Windmill...New music is oozing out of South London on a daily basis. A collective of menacing, dirty, demented rock 'n' roll groups are hauling themselves forwards, with the likes of Goat Girl, SHAME, and HMLTD all finding wider recognition. Phobophobes could be next. New single 'Where Is My Owner' s […]
    • Alvvays Announce New UK Tour Dates September 19, 2017
      Canadian band to return in February 2018...Alvvays have announced a string of huge UK shows for February 2018. The band's new album 'Antisocialites' is out now, and it seems to be bowling over everyone who has heard it. Not that singer Molly Rankin is concerned by all the praise - speaking to Clash recently she commented: “I haven't read […]

Live Video of the Day: Greta Van Fleet – Safari Song(Live in the Sound Lounge)

Posted by falconi5 on August 22, 2017

You could do a lot worse in your young Rock and Roll career than being compared to Led Zeppelin, and these young pups, average age 19, wear it very well indeed.  Their newly released E.P. Black Smoke Rising has only four tracks, and is pretty much their entire catalog to date. But if you are looking for the future of Rock and Roll, climb aboard this Blues-Rock riffing train and enjoy the ride.

Live Video of the Day: Van Morrison – Transformation

Posted by falconi5 on August 16, 2017

Roll With the Punches, the latest Van Morrison album is coming out in September and is destined to be epic. 15 tracks of self penned tunes along with Blues standards should cleanse the palate quite nicely.  His cover of Sam Cooke’s “Bring it On Home to Me” is worth the price of admission alone.

This live rendition of “Tranformation” features a guest vocal from Chris Farlowe and a guitar turn from Jeff Beck.
