Quarantine, Riots, Politics, Civil Unrest, there are a lot of crazy things going on in the world so much so that we need music in our lives now more than ever. Here are five tunes designed to float the mind, soothe the soul, and sail away on that mystery ship.
Ryan Hamilton And The Harlequin Ghosts – Oh No (feat. Kay Hanley)
This new-school Texas Troubadour ha a goal in mind to make the world a better place one song at a time. Here, he asks that we don’t change his Rock & Roll as he namechecks many of the albums that are in most of our libraries. From Purple Rain, Private Dancer, Who’s Next, Hunky Dory and beyond. This is a fun as hell listen that will bring back a lot of memories.
The Struts – Another Hit Of Showmanship
Our favorite Rock is not dead du jour, The Struts and Luke Spiller are out with another belter of an anthem. Here’s hoping that they will be starting a new record in the very near future.
Waterboys – Hey, Soul Singer
Mike Scott and his Waterboys are in fine form this up-tempo song loosely tributing James Brown.
The Middlenight Men – Rat Star
Riding on the slightly harder rock side of the fence The Middlenight Men provides raucous Rock and Roll with inter-changing lead vocals and one hell of a hook and groovy chorus. Looking forward to seeing what these guys have in store for the future.
Biffy Clyro – Tiny Indoor Fireworks
These guys come to you direct from Scotland tailor-made for the festival curcuit, should there ever be one again.
