Cunning Gutter-Blues Trio, Vulpine Smile, Release Seething New Single

Psychedelic blues unsettlers, Vulpine Smile return with their new single, The Way It Flows, every bit as creepily intoxicating as their fans will be anticipating. Taking their cue from old Delta blues, Vulpine Smile build on these primal building blocks and add a grindingly filthy layer of sexy, fuzzy rock. Evoking the likes of Nick Cave, The Cramps and, vocally, Jeff Buckley, Vulpine Smile combine murderous intent with a tongue-in-cheek sense of humour which will have you chuckling all the way to the gallows.

Ondt Blod share new single “Unge Kniva”

“Natur” is a Sami scream from the far north. Made 100 years after the first indigenous political organising in Norway, This is a Sami call to arms against the still on-going colonization and oppression. “Natur” celebrates the duality of human nature, where champagne meets cyanide, machine-gun riffs meet the catchiest choruses out of Scandinavia since ABBA.

Singer Aslak talks about the song; “Unge Kniva (Young Knives) is a about being young, angry, and I crashing the Spellemann-party (the Norwegian Grammys party). Where the privileged let us in, we take what we want. Where they don’t, we build our own castles. Our time is now.”

George Fitzgerald & Lil Silva “Roll Back”

The new single is taken from Fitzgerald’s new LP All That Must Be ; a record with its psychological roots in two cities – Berlin and London. It documents a period of time when FitzGerald’s decade-long stint in the German capital came to an abrupt end, seeing him back in his hometown of London and becoming a father for the first time. It was against this backdrop that All That Must Be started to form and the result is a record that deals with the processes of upheaval, change, acceptance and renewal that affect us all.
