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.
