Another working week has come to it’s end. And the weekend is three days long thanks to international workers day on Monday! Have been a quite hectic week so not much time for music. But at least I have some updates. Getting played tonight on Matt Barker Radio and it will be available from 6 PM UK time (that’s 7 PM in Sweden). I can really recommend his show since he plays a lot of good music and is a great guy.
Even if I haven’t spent a lot of time on my own music I discovered a lot of other independent music. A lot thanks to the various radio shows that plays independent music but also a lot thanks to #MusicHourUK on Twitter. So here some new findings that are also added to my Spotify-playlist #KEEPOUTOFTHEMAINSTREAM
Lazy Ambition is not as lazy as you might think. The play energetic rock that I would say at least have strong influences from skate punk (even though the bassist keeps telling me no). However they are really good and their sound is tight and well sounding without getting boring (like a lot of mainstream rock is). “Waiting for You” comes from their latest EP with the same name.
Next in line is The Human Condition. I don’t have the knowledge to put them in the exact genre, but it’s some kind of electronic pop but most of all it’s a really sweet tune. Fits really well with the first beer on a Friday like this.
One thing that made me really happy the last months is that I discovered a lot of amazing female artists and bands. Most of the music I listen to otherwise is preformed by guys so it’s feels refreshing. The Baby Seals put themselves in the genre Parody Punk Empowerpop. No matter the etiquette they play really energetic punk with that rebelliousness that makes punk such a awesome genre.
Speaking of punk, why not end this post with some beach punk from the British Islands. The Reminders music makes you want to move your feet and wish it already was summer. Found this great act via For The Love Of Bands, another great source where to find new independent music.
That’s all for now folks. But stay tuned for a lot more to come.
