Finnish Punk Icons Terveet Kädet and Their New Album ‘Kaikki kaikkia vastaan’

Revered with a cultish adoration, the band have received influence nods from bands like Sepultura and continually been named one of the best punk bands in the world. Though a touch of metal has tinged their sound in later years, it only adds to the intense thrash assault they bring to the table every time.

In English, Terveet Kädet means “healthy hands” and ‘Kaikki kaikkia vastaan’ translates to “all against all”. Both are demonstrative of TK’s lyrical content which is filled with angst, doubt and concern about the state of the world. With a merciless edge to their disquietude, these Finnish punks seem set on continuing to show us where they come from and what they’re thinking with the same ferocity they did in 1982.

Linda Varg releases her new single ‘Fuck It Up’.

Linda Varg’s new single Fuck It Up makes you think of a warm and sunny Sunday morning after a stormy night. It’s beautifully packaged in a light and feel good production together with her fragile voice in the middle.

“I certainly wasn’t the same person when I started writing this song, as I was when I finished it. A phone call changed me from being a person who made herself smaller in order to not step on other people’s toes, to being a person who is exactly who she wants to be.”


Following the release of his previous effort “Wish You Well” and debut tape Dreams 2 Reality, “You & I” demonstrates K’s strong sense of raw candor and vulnerability as one of the most captivating new voices in Canadian R&B. The EP’s breakout track “I Think I Do” and newly released “Wish You Well” also received airplay on The Joe Budden Podcast.

In the single, “Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself” Lockett sends out a heartfelt message of self love and powering through the dark days. “Don’t be so hard on yourself is about muting the constant voice in your head telling you that you’re not good enough. It’s about self-love and realising that doing your best is enough and you are enough. Since writing this song I’ve used this as a mantra for my life, it’s really helped me personally. Hopefully, it helps others too,” confides Billy. With stunning falsetto singing cathartic melodies over soul-stirring piano, “Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself” is an anthem of self acceptance.

The God Bombs Release New Single/Video “BLACK AND YELLOW”

“The video explores the horror of corporate America, where talented humans are bled of their creativity and funneled into a meaningless “hive” system of work and drudgery. The concept began with the idea to have disgruntled office workers and an overbearing boss villain who would morph into some kind of bee creature with hives sprouting out of him. I like that it weaves a horror narrative with some elements of humor in the office environment, and of course, the band rocking out in the warehouse! It was helped along by some really great extras, friends of ours who showed up for the shoot in costume! (Humberto Meza, Dave Leon, and more).
