Carpark Records, 2017
Everything has been said and written about the Cloud Nothings, a band that steadily has become on of the most real and sincere rocks band of late.
Cloud Nothings catalogue is extensive and pretty creative. They have released live albums, splits and even an album of remixes. Their music has grown and matured close to the 90’s perfection and their lyrics and emotion is still as honest as it was almost 10 years ago. «Life Without Sound» is a solid release with the usual hooks and the occasional power guitars but the energy seems to be a little hidden. Still “Modern Act” is (so far) my favourite track of the year.

From bedroom dreams to a European tour, the Cherry Glazerr rock fun has reached new interesting levels of production and dedication.
Cherry Glazerr’s «Apocalipstick» is a huge leap towards a mature sound. The sounds of the new era will be carried around by the young, strong and unapologetic. Clem Creevy and co. will soon become their own heroes. With heavy hooks and guitar driven melodies, the new sound of pop and power music will have a new meaning: strong and meaningful lyrics are better than radio hits.
Rocket Recordings, 2017
The five man Pig crew come out swinging from the UK with a sludgy opera with big riffs and big time psychedelia .
Pigs(x7) describe themselves as “Rock ‘n’ Roll ‘n’ Tonic Wine” so we may as well be onto something right here. The psychedelic elements come mainly from the filtered voice and spaced out songs. The music is accesible and practical, you can nod your head for more than half an hour and only skip a few beats. “Icon” is a master finale, an 80’s psych-heavy rendition.
