In October 2018, Boston rockers Watts returned with a new digital single ‘Queens’, a blast of guitar-driven goodness that added another piece of retro trashiness to their expanding legacy.
Moving into the new year, they’ve kick started 2019 by sharing another new track.
Just over a year ago, Watts announced they were ‘All Done With Rock n’ Roll’. Despite some hefty rumours claiming there would be no more Watts studio recordings for a while, they’ve returned in double-quick time.
Brooklyn’s Darkwing make a huge sound. It isn’t one that’s easily pigeonholed: some of the vocals draw influence from 80s goth bands like Bauhaus with their echoing presence, but they aren’t a goth band. The drums rattle at speed like they’re driving a solid piece of garage rock, but if you’re looking for something along the lines of The Hives or a DIY band signed to Brooklyn’s own King Pizza Records…just forget it.
It’s been a busy couple of years for Strange Majik (aka David Pattillo). Starting with the release of 2016’s ‘Raised On Rock ‘N’ Roll’ (Real Gone’s favourite album of that year), Strange Majik began an exploration through various retro rock, blues and funk jams that reached fever pitch last year with two angry and politically charged EPs.
This summer, he embarks on his first European tour which is followed by the release of an anticipated new full length entitled ‘Channel T’.
Before the album’s appearance in September you can get a taste for Majik’s new jams, since a new single is available right now and streaming in full below.
Sludge metal fiends Allfather are set to release a new album on September 8th 2018. ‘And All Will Be Desolation’ is the Kentish band’s first full length release since 2016’s ‘Bless The Earth With Fire’.
If you can’t wait until then, you can get a taste of the new record from their new digital single ‘Black Triangle’.
