Here’s what Ibibio Sound Machine’s Eno Williams had to say about “Electricity”: 'This one started out as an idea to mix Afrobeat with Giorgio Moroder–style synth vibes. The end section with Alfred’s korego (Ghanaian 2-stringed folk guitar) solo was already there when we got into the studio, but then we added the big kick drum that happens underneath and Owen from Hot Chip’s crazy drum machine percussion at the end, which gave it a futuristic Afro feel when mixed with the more talking drum parts.' -- https://tinyurl.com/vrtphkz6 https://ibibiosoundmachine.bandcamp.com/album/electricity-2

Got Me Wrong
by Alice in Chains
(15 plays) | (0 fans)

Celebrating the life and legacy of Alice in Chains' original lead singer Layne Staley, who passed away on this day in 2002 This track was released as a single after its appearance in the 1994 Kevin Smith film "Clerks"; guitarist Jerry Cantrell said in the liner notes: "That's about a girl I was dating in between one of the times I broke up with my true love. A lot of times you'll tell someone how you don't want to be in a relationship and why, and what kind of person you are, and they hear all that but think that they can change you. That's what the song's about, getting me wrong and the different ways that men and women see each other."

About A Girl
by Nirvana
(66 plays) | (0 fans)

Celebrating the life and legacy of Kurt Cobain, who passed away on this day in 1994 "About a Girl" was written by Kurt Cobain for his then-girlfriend Tracy Marander. Writer Chuck Crisafulli said that it "perfectly captures the rage, hurt, and residual tenderness of a fractured, failing romance and pack[s] it all into verses and choruses that are unstoppably catchy." Kurt Cobain, in turn, told Spin that he "didn't give a flying fuck what the lyrics were about". Steinke, Darcey. "Smashing Their Heads on That Punk Rock". Spin. October 1993

The Black Tones are on the lineup for the 2022 Capitol Hill Block Party, July 22-24. https://www.capitolhillblockparty.com/ The Black Tones’ “The End of Everything” is about just that: the end of the world and, well, eventually the universe. Named after the book T'he End of Everything (Astrophysically Speaking)' by Katie Mack, the song confronts the fact that, whether it’s the second coming of who or whatever you believe in, this will all end. - https://theblacktones.bandcamp.com/album/the-end-of-everything

NEW MUSIC from the Indiana-based shoegazers; originally performing from 1999-2005, now reformed in 2015 The band is fronted by singer Krissy Vanderwoude who you may recall from recent releases by The Churchhill Garden and The Blue Herons. While Whimsical has often been categorized in the shoegaze/dream pop genre, they say “We’re not trying to copy anyone. We always put our take on it. But, I’ll be the first to say that as much as we think we are “shoegaze” or “dream pop,” we are just as influenced by everything Robert Smith and The Cure has done.” https://whimsical1.bandcamp.com/album/melt

Ur Mum
by Wet Leg
(10 plays) | (0 fans)

BRAND NEW from Wet Leg! Their debut album drops on Friday! Speaking of “Ur Mom” in a statement, Teasdale says: “I was pretty angry at the way things had gone in this particular dynamic. It’s just a diss song I wrote to make myself feel better. It worked.” The song also explores the idea of escaping a small town, something Teasdale and Chambers thought a lot about while growing up on the Isle of Wight. “We’re packed into this really small island,” Teasdale recently told Rolling Stone. “Lots of barbecues, lots of camping with your friends, lots of teenage drinking.” Read more and find a link to the video: https://tinyurl.com/2mnzvwy4

The debut album from this new San Diego supergroup led by John Reis (Rocket From the Crypt, Hot Snakes, Drive Like Jehu) and Rob Crow (Pinback)! “I think part of why we started this group is that we needed a positive reaction to combat the overwhelming uncertainty of life,” Reis said of the new outfit in a statement. “We need to make stuff with guitars and voices to feel normal.” https://bit.ly/3uJXGl7

Released on this day in 1993! Peter Hook, as part of his extended public feud with his former bandmates, has called "Regret" '...the last good New Order song' New Order performed this song live for the long-standing British music show “Top of the Pops” in 1993. However, instead of doing so in a studio they actually filmed the performance in California on the set of “Baywatch”, with the series’ star, David Hasselhoff, even making a cameo appearance.: https://youtu.be/JfI8pJQbcZQ
