Each time Rival Island feature they introduce a slightly different retro reference point to their material and the newest song to surface – Where She Was – is no exception with its infusion from ’50s rock’n’roll.

Firstly, apologies to everyone that I am late to this, just for a change, as it has been hanging around in my email system since earlier this week.

Kill White Lights (available on bandcamp) is one of those tracks you need to be in a position to cause as much chaos as possible within your own environs, unless of course you are watching them play live, when they will be able to offer a helping hand.  Teeter the speakers to tipping point at the edge of which ever surface you have them resting, don’t move the surrounding furniture, do turn up the speakers to full volume – pop on a pair of red brothel creepers – then hit play. The ensuing debris of broken bits crashing around you will attest that you are getting best of a stormer of a song.

Beneath the pulverising rock’n’roll The Judex are equally adept at putting across their scathing regard for a world in which folks living in plastic tubes fixate on the irrelevant whilst blithely ignoring the dying on their own front doorstep.

Rip-roaring rock’n’roll and social awareness – what more does one need?

For the best developing bands from around the globe – I don’t think Emerging Indie Bands on Twitter would be your worst starting point.

The Howlin’ Souls – Viva La Revolucion (again) – Single Review

The US rock’n’roll quartet released the single Viva La Revolucion (again) on the 13th.

The Howlin' Souls

The Howlin’ Souls

A song title often used by musicians and yet, other than the original Mexican Revolutionary song title in common, often not a cover rather a fresh take on current world politics and this is the case with The Howlin’ Souls and the track Viva La Revolucion (again) which is available on bandcamp.

More normally their music has a focus on extensive blues guitar – in the single emphasis is placed on the thumping drum kit which piles its way in to the ears with vocal subtly flowing in and out of limelight and while the riffs of the six stringer is, as expected, present it plays a more supporting role than usually the case.

Steeped deep in the roots-blues origination of the style The Jacks deliver music that finds the audience jiving without even been aware they are moving.

The natural twists and turns of the music attest to a genre that ever remains timeless and current. To their credit The Jacks ably carry on the torch of rock’n’roll, which always burns brightly, whilst adding their own flavourings with their latest track – from their début EP which is set for release towards the end of this month –  She’s A Mystery.
