Jittery Pop from Film Jacket 35

I feel like I’m always in search of the next great pop song to whet my appetite, to hold me over until the next pop hit. Today, I’ve stumbled upon Grecian act Film Jacket 35, offering up this shimmering guitar pop number built for club floors and late night dance parties. Those guitars are jagged and cut just the right groove into the track, while the vocals come off in a “too cool for school” fashion; they throw in some insatiable backing vocals too just add an extra dose of catchiness. Kick those heels up friend and have a little fun.

Fuzzy Rocker From The Noise Figures

untitledSometimes we could all use a little bit of rock n roll in our lives to awaken the demon within.  Thanks to Greek duo The Noise Figures, my inner rocker is being awakened with this sweet track “Holy One”.  If I was pressed to describe the song, I’d call it a fuzzy rock n roll track devoid of gimmicks and tricks.  Nope, this is just a straight up rock song and I’m in need of such a thing today.  Enjoy.

Pick up Aphelion later this month on the 28th via Inner Ear Records.

Wonderful New Tune from The Cave Children

cavechildrenThis tune from Greek outfit The Cave Children drifted across the ocean and into my consciousness, sticking there most of the last few days.  It’s a casual bit of pop music, relaxed in its approach, softly bouncing through your speakers.  I appreciate how they’re really able to hold steady throughout the song, not rushing but not going slowly, just wrapping their arms around pop sensibility and really going for it.  They’re releasing their debut album, Quasiland, this week via Inner Ear Records, and I have a feeling you’re going to love it.

Rock Out With The Noise Figures

artworks-000060092096-x3y55p-t500x500When a band resides in a country across a major ocean, in this case Greece, it is obviously difficult for we Americans to catch on immediately.  Such is the case with Greek rockers The Noise Figures.  These guys just released their new self-titled album last month via their countryman’s label Inner Ear.  Though the band is from the other side of the world, their sound is eerily reminiscent to the current California punk/noise rock scene that the ATH crew has consistently supported.

You can buy The Noise Figures new album digitally on bandcamp or try and get a physical copy shipped your way from Inner Ear Records.

Rock Out With The Callas

the-callasHere’s a great little rock n roll number from Greek rock band The Callas called “Anger”.  The song title is appropriate, as the song seems to have a bit of power and anger driving the force through the song.  Who knew the Greeks could rock?!

New album Am I Vertical? is due out November 19th on Inner Ear Records.
