Experimetal: BNNY RBBT – I Hate Love

With this badly written internet-like quote we discover BNNY RBBT:

“Guys, just couple months ago I go to yard sale where I find old school camcorder bag. Inside was random weird items and VHS tape. And on VHS tape I discover something that changed my life forever… BNNY RBBT!!! The most amazing musician I ever hear!!

So I set up youtubes chanel and website try to find more music from him. After awhile Big World song submitted by fan and now — BREAKING NEWS!!! — a new BNNY RBBT song and video has been found. Song is called “Bombs” and is super magical and strange but beautiful!! I know BNNY RBBT fans will love.

Please to share on you blogs!??

Ciao!!”

When I said this blog supports original material, some artists around the world take it very seriously when they send us tracks. I Hate Love by BNNY RBBT is something extremely hard to define, but pretty. Overall it sounds pretty much like progressive-rock, with a big influence of pop music, sung with a soft voice and followed in the end by an interesting synthesizer. It is indeed well produced and doesn’t particularly fits into a specific genre, which is good, I like it.

Artistically speaking it goes beyond music itself, as BNNY RBBY is a factious character, artist. Therefore, there is not much information about in its official pages except for some quotes about him being:

A giant animal singer (probably 7 foot tall?) who sings like angel and was last seen in 1990s”

It’s official website looks like something from the beginning of the internet, those times where you used to ‘surf’ on dial up connections and read HTML websites. Maybe not the most pop artist you will listen, also it doesn’t sound pretty much from the 90s, otherwise it would be heavy rock, something grunge or highly pop. There are quite a few YouTube videos about this artist, as much as several pictures in Instagram. According to Spotify itself, those songs were really produced in the 90s. Well, truth or not it is something original and highly interesting that can be listened to. I’m leaving here embedded a link to its Spotify profile besides Soundcloud.

 

New Pop: pizzagirl – Coffee Shop (2018)

Disclaimer: Ok, this blog doesn’t want to be that much focused on pop music, but mainly progressive/psychedelic rock and crazy electronic material; however, there is a bunch of independent nice pop music being made that deserve to be shared, so we’ll have a few tracks that were sent to us and we’ll be covering it these days. Such as the independent pop-rock from Florida, The Hails, covered yesterday. Soon we also want to be covering old-stuff again, after all we said this blog is also about the all-time classics not only new music.

New bedroom-pop track, the third release of Pizzagirl, after Favourite Song and Carseat. It is a downer-disco from UK. Coffee Shop is his new track, though it talks about caffeine and not magical herbs sold in homonymous places here in Netherlands. This artist has an announced new EP due 13th April. It all starts with a very catchy intro, with na-na-na (Hey Jude style) vocals, with dance-able and catchy instrumental lines.

Pizzagirl is Liam Brown. There are several different influences on this track, from 80s pop to current pop-rock and disco. The vocals are a very interesting part of the track, where high-timbre voices speak about a coffee shop while the lead singer follows them with his man’s voice together with the basic instruments.

This is not at all an exaggerated pop-style, but something done in an underground bedroom in UK that stand out from the pop being done nowadays. The producer does everything himself from the comfort of his bedroom studio, as many of them (Including me, except for the fact that I am using my kitchen as studio). The synths sound just amazing.

Coffee Shop has been released this 9th March by label Heist or Hit. The track is available for streaming in Spotify.

The artist has some UK dates to perform, so if you live in the UK, you can check his laptop lonesome live (and let us know how it was).

New Single: The Hails – Younger (2018)

Well, I haven’t been personally a fan of good boy’s pop-rock with dramatic and romantic lyrics since my adolescence or my early 20s, when I used to go every year to Lollapalooza São Paulo back in the days. Recently, my favourite style of rock has been heavy sounds such as old-school Sepultura or other styles of Psychedelic/Progressive Rock. Since I started working with this blog, music production and promotion in general, such as playlist-making, I have been refining my ears to identify what is good independent rock bands with future and what are basically industrial crap. I receive many things everyday, so I have some clues how to identify it.

The Hails with its new release Younger has cute lyrics with great production that stand out. Recorded in Miami, Florida, with engineer & producer Matt Lewin it mixes contemporary pop-rock with a 70s groove, marked by interesting keys that fill the spaces of the guitar, bass and drums. Vocals from Robbie Kingsley are pretty and soft in this track. Previous works from the band remind a lot Jack White’s style of playing guitar and singing, such as Bronco, from their last EP, much more traditional hard rock style than their new single Younger. The Hails is formed by: Andre Escobar (bass-guitar) / Zach Levy (drums) / Robbie Kingsley (lead-vocals) / Dylan McCue (guitar) / Franco Solari (guitar-vocals).

You can check their work in Soundcloud and Spotify.

Long Live Death! Down with the Intelligence! – The Suicide of Western Culture (2015)

Today it was shared on Soundcloud the album from a band from Barcelona, The Suicide of Western Culture, album entitled Long Live Death! Down with the Intelligence, released 2015.

This is post-rock with heavy electronic influences, such as drone-music, marked by amazing synthesizers that are combined with cinematographic samples. Using great thematics in the tracks, with songs that posses appealing titles. The sound reminds a lot bands such as Mogwai. However, not limiting to the post-rock field and far crossing the genre borders to a more electronic style of music.

It is also possible to check their discography in Bandcamp for more info.
