• Lokerse Feesten: La Muerte + Mark Lanegan + The Jesus and Mary Chain + Kaiser…

    Wed 5 Aug – Lokerse Feesten 2015 - Dag 6

    Op deze zesde avond van de Lokerse Feesten leek het meeste volk te zijn afgekomen op '80s grootheden The Jesus and Mary Chain. Ze kwamen in Lokeren integraal hun tot een klassieker uitgegroeide album nog eens voorstellen: Psychocandy. Deze debuutplaat zorgde voor een ware aardverschuiving medio 1985. De band groeide uit tot een icoon van de jaren '80. Hun invloed op de hedendaagse muziek, vooral binnen o.a. het shoegaze-genre bijvoorbeeld, en hun impact in die jaren '80 zorgde er voor dat hun fanbasis tot op heden nog steeds staat als een huis. Dat bleek toen het plein plots heel goed gevuld stond tot ver achteraan bij het aantreden van de groep.

  • Kin-Folk Is A Breath Of Fresh

    17 Jul 2015, 12:22 by CrybKeeper

    Coming to us from Big Hungry Entertainment, Kin-Folk featuring guests Dave and D Greezy, are more than fresh - The lyrics and musical arrangements are new, vibrant and unique to the rap and hip hop genre. Kin Folk has his very own style, like no others. The music deserves to be heard by the masses.

    This young man is genuine, raised in the mean streets. Abandoned by his real father, but raised by a great step father, who is African American. Eminem move the hell over, because Kin Folk is for real. He is not a white player, playin' at being a rap star. Kin Folk lived the raw, hard life and grew up his entire life, living the culture and learning the lifestyle first hand.

    His music conveys this, with genuine creativity and experience. Yet, he has the ability to string together hard hitting, emotional lyrics, that easily connect with a wide variety of fans - Being emotional, loving, adventurous, gritty and at times nasty enough to be something completely different from the mainstream rap, which continues to spew out the same tired subject matter, we all have heard over and over again. Kin Folk is truly 'A Breath Of Fresh Air'.

    The latest CD release by Kin Folk features 16 top shelf songs. It is titled, Royalty & Loyalty. Tracks include Kin-Folk featuring Dave and D Greezy in Take You Home, Kin-Folk with D Goode in More Than Friends and Can I Please featuring Sicc Em Chuckie.

    Here is what Kin-Folk had to say, about this latest CD:

    "This is what's up - We got Aleric Banks a.k.a. Rick Tha Rular on this album. Also, D Goode who writes for Wyclef, Diddy, Day 26, Mario Winans and more...Lil Don and all the artist on my label are on this CD. I've been truly blessed to have them all. I mix with Waves Mercury on a Blue Yeti condenser mic and I record on Adobe Audition 3.0."

    The CD release is slated for 9-11-15, but Kin-Folk is accepting pre-orders. Hit him up on his Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/BigHungryEntertainment We can also sample his music on You Tube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=46&v=stuzxdxc5y0 This link also features appearances by Kin-Folks father and fam and the song is called My City Made Me and it describes everything that makes Kin-Folk the artist he is today.

    For those music hungry people out there, who are looking for something different and original, Kin Folk is a big plate of fresh - Come take a taste.

  • Mister Sir: The fifth and the last single of Sleep

    11 Jun 2015, 04:28 by mistersirband

    The fifth and the last single from our debut record Sleep.

    Full album is waitin you here:
    Memoirs of a Lucid Dreaming Practitioner. Part V
    Slow-wave Sleep.
    The bridge embodies connection between Heaven and Earth, the union of a man and a deity. It is a form of a bond between different points of sacred space. The bridge has always meant a transition from one state to another, a change or a desire for a change.
    Earth and Heaven were once connected by a bridge (or a tree, or a vine), and thanks to this people could easily communicate with gods, because there was no death. Since then the connection between Earth and Heaven has been lost, so you can only cross the bridge as a “spirit”. For that you have to either die, or to enter a trance state. This transition is rather hard to achieve, as it is fraught with dangerous obstacles and not all of the souls are capable of overcoming it.
  • The dream is real as long as you remember it

    29 May 2015, 03:19 by mistersirband

    The fourth single from our debut record Sleep.

    Full album is waiting for you here: https://mistersirband.bandcamp.com/album/sleep

    Memoirs of a Lucid Dreaming Practitioner. Part IV
    Partial awakening.
    The dream is real as long as you remember it.
    With every second our present inevitably turns into the past and we can’t put the clock back. The main proofs of the existence of this past are our memories. Events that occurred five or ten years ago remain in our memory in a form of sketchy scenes, which contain only the most vivid, sharp and unusual changes in the daily routine. When you cogitate over the past, you watch someone else’s life from the sidelines. But what if some dreams leave not less lively memories about visual, tactual, and taste sensations? If we were to evaluate the reality of the past by the fact of having memories of these sensations, then dreams that were not forgotten in the morning would arguably be just as real.

  • The Kut - Kerrang! Video Premiere

    15 May 2015, 00:44 by criminalrecords

    Kerrang! Magazine premiere the brand new music video by The Kut today (Friday 15th May)!  The track, I Don't Need Therapy is taken from the recent 'Rock Paper Scissors EP' and was directed by Mike Gripz. Watch it from 4pm at http://kerrang.com

    Classic Rock Magazine
    Tracks of the Week
    "Bad Man marks the precise point in the Venn diagram where L7 meets I Wanna Be Your Dog meets Courtney Love, which is equal parts terrifying and a cause for long and rowdy celebration. Punk's not dead, pass it on."

    Kerrang! Magazine 
    "Despite the loud Courtney love references they're more than just Hole II. Mario has an Against Me! Strut to the intro, while DMA is a pounding gem"

    Q Magazine
    Top 5 Tracks To Listen to This Week
    "There's a slice of angst-offloading gutter rock that's a kissing cousin of Hole, but The Kut's scuzz-covered family tree also stretches further back to the garage rampages of The Stooges."
  • Jimmy Spoon x LBN 667 - Flow (2015) Ultra Vague Recordings

    13 May 2015, 10:21 by FudoKazuki

    Jimmy Spoon's third release was written in collaboration with American producer #LBN667. # sounds, tending to and # roughness is a recognisable feature of LBN667. Having combining an unusual singing manner for music and LBN667's textures from beyond, Jimmy Spoon made a mix that is hard to describe. There are some strong emotions in the "Flow", these emotions develop into a solid conceptual story. It's a deep and lyrical yet # work. It takes five tracks to take a listener through various layers and themes such as human relations and parallel worlds. With this record Jimmy got one step closer to his own sounding - nothing is restraining his singing tending to ardor and gothic detachment at the same time. #UltraVague

  • We don’t own anything but our inner world

    9 May 2015, 04:25 by mistersirband

    The third single from our debut record Sleep.

    Full album is already available here: https://mistersirband.bandcamp.com/album/sleep

    Memoirs of a Lucid Dreaming Practitioner. Part III
    REM sleep, rapid eye movement stage.
    We don’t own anything but our inner world.
    A dream is the only place where everything is under your control. The law of conservation of energy and substance no longer applies here: you can create any object you like out of thin air, you can bend space at any degree of freedom, you can fly, teleport, rush with the speed of light without fearing experiencing hundreds of g.
    The most interesting part is how our consciousness simulates feelings we’ve never experienced in real life. If during a lucid dream you jump out of a window, first you experience a normal falling (as you should in real life). But just few inches from the ground the falling gradually slows down. When you hit the asphalt, it turns into a jelly, which slowly absorbs you and kicks you out of the current level of sleep.
    Having all of these limitless possibilities one can't help but question the necessity of this “real” world. Why do we need it, if we have a much more pliable inner world where the only masters are we ourselves? The reality is that in this “real” world we don’t own any material things. In a blink of an eye we can lose everything we consider belonging to us “by right”.

  • What would life be like if we wouldn’t have to sleep?

    21 Apr 2015, 03:29 by mistersirband

    The second single from our debut record Sleep.

    Full album is already available here: https://mistersirband.bandcamp.com/album/sleep

    Memoirs of a Lucid Dreaming Practitioner. Part II
    Light sleep, the second stage of NREM sleep.
    What would life be like if we wouldn’t have to sleep? Certainly, we would have missed a ton of fascinating dreams. But we would have been able to achieve such great heights without drifting off every day even for couple of hours. Alfred Herpin knew it firsthand. This man had a rare case of insomnia, which allowed him not to sleep at all and this in no way reflected on his health. At some point of his life he claimed that he had been constantly awake for at least 10 years in a row. The rest of the more than 6 billion people will never experience this state. Because even just a day of insomnia results in problems with health for all of us. Within a few sleepless days human consciousness loses its clarity, causing an overwhelming desire to fall asleep with occasional “collapses” into a borderline state with confusional consciousness. This method of moral coercion is used during interrogations and is considered to be a refined torture.
