Amuri - Masa

The pop poem of the Finish baroque pop band AMURI from Amuri, Tampere. The band was founded by young and talented songwriters Mikko "Rock" Siltanen (EXPLOSIVES, TALMUD BEACH) and Kalevi Suopursu (GUGGENHEIM PROJECT). Later, keyboardist Anna Pesonen (SAMANNA) and drummer Sebastian Krühn (TAMPO, LAURA MOISIO) joined.

In the native language they tell the story of thier dreams. Like on today's tune "Masa" where Mikko goes to the tavern every day with his three friends to taste the number one beer. One day he examines the instruments of the dance orchestra KALEVA and ponders aloud: what would it be like to play in a band? The video is dedicated to the 51-year-old Salhojankatu Pub.

Today's tune "Masa" is taken from the self titled debut album, which was released by Helmi Levyt on August 28, 2020. The Video was directed by: Kalevi Suopursu & Sami Sänpäkkilä. Description and color definition: Sami Sänpäkkilä. Editing: Kalevi Suopursu.

Kadabra - Settle Me

"Ultra" is the debut album by the American psychedelic rockers KADABRA.

The band hails from Spokane, Washington U.S., delivers the eerie psyche crawl of acts like DEAD MEADOW and the heavy fuzzed riff grime of BLACK SABBATH. In the fall of 2020, they tracked their debut album "Ultra" with Dawson Scholz, and it did see the light on September 17th via Heavy Psych Sounds.

In 2020, a year wracked with cultural dissent and a global pandemic, fellow musicians and long-time friends Garrett Zanol and Ian Nelson decided to create a band that would pull influence from a few of their favorite musical acts. After retaining the talents of their favorite local drummer Chase Howard, the group got to work on writing an album that illustrates their current climate.

Today's tune "Settle Me" is the second single taken from the KADABRA debut album "Ultra". KADABRA comments the tune: "Settle Me" is the last song we wrote for the album "Ultra". The song rides the steady swampy flow of psychedelia while racing into a heavy, fuzzed turbulence."

Shinedown - Simple Man

Thursday, time for a cover.

"Simple Man" is the last track on side one of LYNYRD SKYNYRD's debut album, "(Pronounced 'Lĕh-'nérd 'Skin-'nérd)".

The song is one of LYNYRD SKYNYRD's most popular songs. Since the song became available for digital download, it has become LYNYRD SKYNYRD's third best-selling digital song after "Sweet Home Alabama" and "Free Bird." It has sold 1,333,000 copies in the U.S. as of November 2013.

"Simple Man" is written in the key of A minor/C major, though all guitars were tuned down a half step, effectively making it G# minor/B. The song begins with an acoustic arpeggiated chord sequence made up of the chords C major, G major and A minor (though with the tuned-down guitars, effective progression of B major, F# major and G# minor). This intro is accompanied by a bass line and cymbals before the drums and vocals come in for the verse. Lyrically the song is about a mother talking to her child about life, inspired by the passing of Ronnie Van Zant's grandmother.[2] The chorus of the song includes electric guitars imitating sections of the arpeggiated intro progression. The guitar solo is performed by Gary Rossington.

Today's version is made by SHINEDOWN, "Leave A Whisper" paved the way for Shinedown's successful second album, "Us And Them", and was re-released on June 15, 2004, to incorporate a cover version of LYNYRD SKYNYRD's "Simple Man".

Today's tune "Simple Man" by Shinedown from the album "Leave A Whisper", enjoy!

Goat – Queen Of The Underground

"Headsoup" is a new compilation that deepens the legend of mysterious Swedish psych collective GOAT even further. Collecting rarities from across band's celebrated career, including standalone singles, B-sides, digital edits and two enormous brand new tracks, it's a globetrotting acid trip of a record that's even bigger in its scope than their acclaimed studio LPs.

From the incendiary heavy psych of their earliest work, like debut B-side 'The Sun And Moon', to the serene 'Requiem'-era alternate take 'Union Of Mind And Soul', to the simmering menace of their latest material, it's a record as multifaceted as Goat themselves, packed with detours in every conceivable direction. Taking in jazz-flute solos, pounding Afrobeat rhythms, ferocious desert blues, drifting Ethio-jazz, this is, as the name of GOAT's first album made clear, 'World Music' in its most complete form, a sound unrestrained by genre boundaries. Yet the band are anything but lazy appropriators. They approach their forebears with upmost reverence, articulating a celebratory cultural cross-pollination. And what about these two new tracks? 'Fill My Mouth' is a scuzzy psychedelic funk knockout, the sleaziest thing the band have ever recorded. 'Queen Of The Underground', meanwhile, is truly herculean, a swaggering psychedelic powerhouse of the very highest order. Sometimes dark and heavy, at others joyous and beautiful, like Goat themselves 'Headsoup' is mysterious, and constantly shapeshifting, difficult to properly pin down but constantly enthralling. Almost a decade since they first emerged from the depths of Scandinavia, there is still no other band on earth that sounds quite like them.

Today's tune "Queen Of The Underground" is taken from "Headsoup", enjoy!
