SINGLE OF THE WEEK
NUN : Can’t Chain
A canny tightrope between detached cool and focused propulsion, Can’t Chain initiates with an elevating sense of grandiose before kicking into overdrive. It’s a dizzying, melodic spell, jack-knifing melodic shifts inferring glee without sounding gleeful. The more you immerse yourself in Can’t Chain, the more it rewards. New album The Dome out early 2017.
LAZERTITS : Boss Bitch
Sick garage riffs and a string of tightly woven empowered slogans come together for a salt rock blast of feel-good rock‘n’roll. An anthem that’ll stick around in the noggin’, making a welcome stay.
NICK MURPHY : Stop Me (Stop You)
Nick Murphy (formerly known as Muscles) further stretches his limbs in a promising new era of reinvention, going all in on his ability to be a bit daring with his tonal palette, making some dissonant components come together for something digestable. This is the best song he’s written.
KING GIZZARD & THE LIZARD WIZARD : Rattlesnake
Tension without release defines Rattlesnake, meditative but never dull. Dunno if they’ll bust this out at Meredith, but reckon there’s potential for an all-time Supernatural set all the same.
