De Forbandede - Sirenernes Hævn

DE FORBANDEDE is a danish stoner/garage rock band. Formed in Odense, Denmark, 2015 as an recording project aimed at meeting in a studio to write and record songs in the same session, both to avoid over-exercise and that the songs could be as "fresh" as possible. In the style there was gone on the psychedelic and a vowel-driven desert rock. It quickly swept into a 3-track EP "Everything & Nothing" that, together with 2 videos, quickly drew attention to the band from GFR, Gearbox Agency, Career Channel and various festivals plus a nomination for the Odense Live Prize 2017.

A square circle that's about everything and nothing - perfect u-perfect melodic vowel drowning in leap reverb and space echo. Fiery wild guitar solos are looking for the stars while toned drums and the thundering fuzzbass call deep inside the earth's interior. All in while the vibraphone and organsynth sneak you up with a consciousness-expanding full moon ridden through the desert. When classical psych meets the day of judgment, we are all lost and disappearing into the cosmos in a malfunction of dreams and lights, forever happy, forever damned.

The band consist of:

Peter Østergaard - Guitars, vocals
Ricky Christensen - Drummer
Nicolei Martin Aagaard Rasmussen - bass, vocals
Michael Hansen-Buur - keys, vocals

When classical psych meets the day of judgment, we are all lost and disappearing into the cosmos in a malfunction of dreams and lights, forever happy, forever damned.

Today's tune "Sirenernes Hævn" is taken from the album "Den Evige Nat". Footage from the film "Voyage To The Planet Of Prehistoric Women" (Peter Bogdanovich, 1968), enjoy!

Jesper Binzer - Dream Big

On February 23rd, just a week before Jesper’s major tour, Jesper is releasing a brand new single called “Dream Big”. And in a few weeks his tour entres Swedish soil, hopefully, I get time to go and see it live. See all the dates below.

Jesper says:

“Dream Big” is a real melancholic candidate for the inner playlist – three verses from reality; about infertility, divorce and the brutality of power … and the chorus is about acceptance of, that it’s not only going up and down in the showbiz but also in life … My whole solo album, Dying Is Easy, is about myself, myself and a little bit more about myself, so it has been a new and exciting experience with a new single, to try to do something different and at the same time get some more music to take out and tour Denmark, Scandinavia and Europe with “.

The single has been produced by Søren Andersen, who is also there when Jesper and his band are touring around in Denmark, Sweden, Germany as well as some very special rock tours in Southern Europe.

Rumors say that Jesper Binzer has a little extra gift in his sleeve on Record Store Day Saturday, April 21st.

Enjoy today's tune!

Bad Wolves - Zombie

"Zombie" is a protest song by Irish rock band THE CRANBERRIES, written about the 1993 IRA bombing in Warrington, and in memory of two young victims, Johnathan Ball and Tim Perry. It was released in September 1993 as the lead single from their second studio album, No Need to Argue (1994). It preceded the release of No Need to Argue by two weeks. The song was written by the band's lead singer Dolores O'Riordan, and reached No. 1 on the charts in Australia, Belgium, France, Denmark and Germany.

The song returned to the Top-Ten on the US Rock Charts shortly after news of Dolores O’Riordan’s passing earlier this year.

O’Riordan was slated to record vocals for BAD WOLVES cover of the track on the day of her passing. The band decided to release the song in her honour with all BAD WOLVES proceeds going to her children.

"She was telling me BAD WOLVES version was “awesome” and she could not wait to get into the studio, however ultimately her voicemails have brought comfort to her Mother Eileen and her family as they heard her messages joking and talking passionately about music, her children, and future plans."

BAD WOLVES will tour extensively in 2018, with US tour dates supporting FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and SHINEDOWN running through April and May, with more worldwide dates TBA.

Wucan - The Rat Catcher

Kraut-fueled Heavy Flute Rock is not the daily thing that plays on the radio these days, but you will get it here.

WUCAN is a rock band from Dresden, Germany. The band were formed in 2011 and have released an EP and two studio albums to date. Francis Tobolsky (flute, rhythm guitar, vocals), Tim George (lead guitar) and Patrik Dröge (bass guitar) and Leo Vaessen (drummer).

In December 2011, singer Francis Tobolsky posted an advertisement in a student magazine with the headline 'Blues Brothers Wanted', with the intention of forming a band. Guitarist Tim George and drummer 'Pätz' joined Tobolsky for rehearsals throughout 2012 and the band's first line-up was complete when Patrik Dröge joined on bass in November the same year.

Throughout 2013, WUCAN started songwriting, recording and playing their first gigs as a band. They had also released demos and singles on YouTube.

In July 2014, Pätz left the band shortly after the recording of the debut EP Vikarma. His replacement was a new drummer 'Ollie', who remained with the band for six months before leaving and was replaced by a further drummer 'Marc'.

In February 2015, the band started preparing for their first studio album. A month later they were the main support act for SIENA ROOT during their tour of mainland Europe. Marc only lasted two months in the band before being replaced with Leo Vaessen who was brought in for recordings for the debut album "Sow The Wind".

Their second studio album, "Reap The Storm", was released in September 29, 2017.

WUCANs music can be described as heavy 70s influenced folk rock with hints of stoner and doom. Fans and critics often compare the band's sound to JETHRO TULL, because of the continuous use of flute, and BLACK SABBATH. WUCAN fit into the 'retro rock' subgenre along with fellow German bands KADAVAR and ZODIAC, with the former previously using WUCAN as main support on a number of occasions.

Today's tune "The Rat Catcher" is taken from the album "Reap The Storm", enjoy!
