DJ Grumpys Cranky Recommendations Volume 2

Posted in Music Reviews on June 11th, 2010 by Editor
The old grump points his dirty fingers at new & exciting acts that shouldnt be missed. Here is volume 2 of powerfull bands that should reach a much greater audience – all have been and will continue to be featured on – but dont let it stop there, go check out all their respective pages and give the excellent tunes a thorough listen. Its well worth your while !

Laurier Tiernan
The world’s only 6’7″ queer vegan recording artist, as he describes himself, is a completely loony poppunker from Tokyo. The lyrics are hilarious masterpieces (in english), though I have my doubts Arnold Schwarzenegger will ever replace Obama as president ! However, the raw unpolished punk riffs are capable of making any old punk thrash around in mad hysteria whilst laughing uncontrollably at the madness going on. Give Tiernan a good old fashioned kick of a listen !

The Zero Point
This danish punkband was originally formed all the way back in 1979. Whilst they never reached a commercially wide audience they have always had a solid cult following, the band has toured most of Western Europe over the years and won a variety of alternative/punk awards. The Zero Point called it a day in 1987. Now the old punks are back in better shape than ever with a selection of fresh hardhitting material. This is certainly a comeback that shouldnt be missed, on air or live at the venues. Check out their compilation of old rarities “HOOLIGANS WITH CHEAP GUITARS” and not least, get your arse out to the venues – you wont be disappointed!

A new group of captivating talents has emerged on the british indie pop/rock scene. The name is Itamar and you may not know it now, but you most certainly will. Theyre performing delicate pieces of pop/rock with a dark edge and a genuine energy that brings back memories of the qualitative height of the new wave movements whilst still presenting a unique hope for the future. Itamar have their very own style and the vocal especially isnt to be missed, though it would be a crime to label them up too narrowly – instead, go check out excellent creations such as “Mr Right” or get yourself to one of their gigs round the UK.

Tiffany Apan
Tiffany Apan has just released her debut album Poet, which is a bit of a patchy gem. She states her inspirations as Sarah Brightman & Tori Amos among others, which would usually make me reach for the sleeping pills, but luckily the grand walls of sound come with an interesting twist – a hardrocking vibe and excellently screaming guitar performances to provide the dynamics and energy so often lacking in this type of music. At her best Tiffany blows you away with atmospherical hardrock – a clear example being the wonderfully powerful Warrior (Soldier for Myself).

Loreweaver – Imperviae Auditiones

Posted in Music Reviews on June 4th, 2010 by Editor

Loreweaver – Imperviae Auditiones   8 tracks

This is the band barbara Rubin joined in 2008 and there is a major different in style between the band and her solo project
Rock going towards metal. with an orchestral, meat loaf,  a bat out of hell feel, but not as commerical. All long epic songs, letting the songs breathe, none of this 3 minute radio editing that morden has that habbit of doing.

Combining two decades of sound, 90’s and present rock, the synth sounds have also travelled from her album. As an album on its own without comparing it to Barbaras influence, even though she is the lead singer, its full throttle with the softer elements of female vocals in the breaks and chorus. Definitely a stadium band, you can feel they need to be spread out onto a big stage and the sound needs it.

5 Members in the band and Barbaras harmonies are overlayed because she is the only singer, unless someone else contributes, but there is no extra credit. That night, is really a longer verson of one of Barbara Rubin songs, which should have been at the beginning of the album so you know it going onto harder rock, rather than near the end, although, the idea was probably trying to keep the band sort of seperate from Barbaras promotion, good songs, but i think at the wrong end of the album, especial as the last song is actually going back to the band sound.

Overall great epic songs, a lot going on and it really leaves you gasping for breath and your only in the third song. Url:
