Today’s playlist features music by Alice in Chains, Tiga Lilly, Queens Of The Stone Age and more. Tune in.
George, the new guy, is throwing down your five tunes of the day. You know what to do.
1. Tiga Lilly – ‘What Life Is’
If you hadn’t already read the title, you’d think this was a new Tame Impala single. But that’s okay, because that’s the sound they’re going for. And they’re doing a pretty good job of it. This UK four-piece psychedelic rock band is barely out of it diapers, but I get a feeling they’re going be huge in the underground music scene soon enough.
2. Alice in Chains – ‘Voices’
Alice in Chains’ latest single is a little different to the AIC you (hopefully) grew up listening to. A little softer than their usual grunge meets heavy metal style of music, ‘Voices’ still carries some of those dark undertones that we know and love about this band.
3. Queens Of The Stone Age – ‘I Sat By The Ocean’
QOTSA have done it again. A fairly uncomplicated composition, with a minimal (yet profoundly badass) sounding guitar riff, and great vocals that carry the expressive and rebellious tone of rock music – a tradition that seems so scarce lately. The …Like Clockwork album comes as a breath of fresh air for the mainstream rock sound.
4. Bosnian Rainbows – ‘Morning Sickness’
Bosnian Rainbows are an experimental rock band co-fronted by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (of The Mars Volta fame). Their music incorporates elements of electronic rock, jazz fusion, math rock, psychedelic rock, and art rock – and yet, somehow, it’s still what I would consider “easy listening”. Bottom line is, if you’re not a fan of the progressive genres, this band might change your mind.
5. Tame Impala – ‘Elephant’
I predict that Tame Impala will go down in history as one of the greatest and most influential psychedelic rock bands of the 21st century. Lots of delay, reverb, and synth effects – with a raw, gritty, classic rock sound.
