This week’s eight tracks are all must-listens, so get ’em in your earholes & find a new favourite band!
Nick Testa Jr. – “Let’s Make A Flag”
We’re kicking things off with a straightforward rock track from US artist Nick Testa Jr. – there’s a bit of a 90s flair here, which is right up my alley. Listen up!
The Mandevilles – “Lightning”
Always an FTS favourite, The Mandevilles are back with another new track from their upcoming album – “Lightning” has some killer guitar and a hell of a chorus that you’re gonna be singing long after you listen. (So… go listen.)
Cheap Meat – “Eddie & Valerie”
When I saw the name of this song, my hope was that it referred to Eddie Van Halen and Valerie Bertinelli – and Cheap Meat did not disappoint. This song is an ode to Eddie, and I’m diggin’ it a lot.
Casual Friday – “You Better Start Off Now”
Here’s a new tune by Casual Friday from Germany – it’s all about change. This track is fantastic, it really grabs you. Great melodies, dramatic ebbs and flows. Give it a listen!
The Carbons – “Steel Toe Boots”
The Carbons take us on a “fuzz-blues rock ride”, chock full of good energy and dancy vibes in their new track, “Steel Toe Boots”.
Nick Brodeur – “Believe It’s Your Time”
Here’s a catchy pop rock tune from Nick Brodeur – not only is it a great song, it’s a collaboration with the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation, where all proceeds will be donated.
Dark Side of Light – “Moist”
Here’s some indie rock dream poppy sounds with vocals that have great similarities to (my favourite) Chino Moreno of Deftones. Check out this track by Dark Side of Light!
Sycamore – “Gambling Man”
Rounding out this week’s list, we’ve got a fast-paced fun song from Australia’s Sycamore – “Gambling Man” has serious energy and garage rock riffs.
