Telamor – Wild Wild Weekend: Avant-Garde Party Rock

https://telamor.bandcamp.com/track/wild-wild-weekend-metal-mix

As a staunch Frank Zappa fan, it was impossible not to instantly fall in love with Boston-based up and coming artist Telamor’s latest single Wild Wild Weekend (Metal Mix).

The eccentrically experimental track fuses sleazy Party Rock with artfully inventive elements of Avant-Garde Blues to create a supercharged infectiously playful track. I live to write the words ‘you’ve never heard anything quite like this before’, and they’ve never been more accurate.

Telamor may not take himself all too seriously, but the nuances in the sound and the quality of the production prove that he takes his sound incredibly seriously. If you’re looking for a sticky-sweet riff-soaked aural pick me up, look no further than this insanely refreshing taste breaker.

You can stream and download Telamor’s latest release by heading over to Bandcamp.

Cole Lumpkin – Furious: The Soundtrack to Insanity

https://youtu.be/5ltH8_Oxue0

Feeling angsty? Cole Lumpkin’s new feverous track Furious offers a perfectly pacifying sound.

It’s impossible to exaggerate just how much passion the charismatic artist Cole Lumpkin has put behind this masterpiece of a track; from the intro you’re dragged along with the hook of sporadic chaos of the arrangements which have been orchestrated to perfection. Through the lyrics he captures his contempt so succinctly, it’s impossible not to get caught up in his enigmatic allure as he spits out his vocals with angelic resent.

Even after the 10th time of me listening to the track, I was transfixed on the dramatic uplifting composition of creativity. With influences such as Frank Zappa, Rush, Jethro Tull & Talking Heads, it’s no surprise that this sound is so painstakingly beautiful.

Furious is the latest track from the New York based experimental artist who offers contemporary lashings of Art Deco Pop, curtesy of his finely tuned percussion ensemble.

Head on over to YouTube to check out the official video, I can personally guarantee you won’t be disappointed in the sound that unravels with infinite melody.

Video Premiere: Damn The Witch Siren – ‘Feelin’ Myself’

Imagine if Frank Zappa had made experimental dance music instead of existential rock. Then imagine if he was also a multi-media artist working in the realms of dance and visuals. Now imagine if he spent his creative life on a permanent sugar induced rush. Oh, and there are two of him. Even that gives you just a glimpse of the world of the wonderfully named Damn The Witch Siren.

It’s always great when you come across artists who invent their own genre and become a musical religion of one. Bobbi Kitten and Z Wolf do just that blending hi-octane EDM with glitchy, staccato pop, Day-Glo club sounds and rave attitudes. It is brighter than the sun, hotter than hell, saccharine sweet and wonderfully demented.
