NOW STREAM THIS! Night Beats, Dr. Dog and Lorde Advance Album Streams

September 23, 2013 in Now Stream This! by rock6847

You gotta stream it to believe it! There’s some really groovy stuff streaming before the official release dates.

Seattle based Night Beats is streaming their yet to be released album, Sonic Bloom, a reverb-draped psychedelic garage rock effort expected for release on September 24th via the Reverberation Appreciation Society. This is a second album for the Night Beats, but the first for Reverberation Appreciation Society (a result of Austin Psych Fest). Click on the photo above to be directed to our photographic coverage of APF 2013. Stream the album in its entirety below. It’s rather phuzzy!

 

Just a short eight days away from its official release date on October 1st via ANTI- Records, Dr. Dog is giving us a chance to stream the new album, B-Room, in its entirety. Listen to all twelve tracks via Rolling Stone magazine. Pre-order a copy here.

Not sure what compels us to introduce you to New Zealand’s Lorde, but we think you might find it interesting enough and since her debut album, Pure Heroine, is currently streaming a full week ahead of its official release date, why not share it with you? 16-year-old, Ella Yelich-O’Connor, is notably youthful, but she introduces great sounds into her music that seem to marry indie rock with pop music sensibilities. The single, ‘Royals’ captures just exactly that blend referenced above. Hit the play button on the video link above and decide for yourself.

VOYAGES OF RC! Depeche Mode – The Delta Machine Tour w/ Bat for Lashes @ BB&T Center, Sunrise, FL (9/15/13)

September 20, 2013 in Voyages of Rock Cousteau by rock6847

Depeche Mode15

At a time when 80’s new wave bands are struggling to stay relevant, Depeche Mode breaks free from all conventions. Judging from their looks and display of high energy, you’d NEVER know these musicians were in their 50s. Not only is this British electronic new wave band moving better than musicians half their age, they are doing so, all while filling up arenas capable of holding 15,000 people or more, just as they did Sunday night (9/15/13) appearing at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, FL on the Delta Machine Tour.

Before Depeche Mode would take the stage, Natasha Khan a/k/a Bat For Lashes opened the evening to deliver her dramatic goth-inspired set reminiscent of The Cure, Kate Bush and Bjork. While it was a great opportunity, the BB&T Center may have been a bit less accommodating for a band better suited for performing in a tiny, dark venue.

Khan was clothed in a gorgeous floor length, black and white striped, backless gown. Her sultry presence clearly matching the mood of each song, as she gently writhed around the stage area allotted for her band. They closed out the set with the simply steamy, dreamy tune, ‘Daniel,’ but by now, you could tell that the audience was patient, yet anticipating the headlining act.

Dave Gahan, at the tender age of 51, sweat, swaggered and swooned the audience, and he did so while enjoying every moment. If this was work for Gahan, you could hardly tell, as he wore a perma-smile the entire night. And moves, well not likely those like Jagger, but certainly intense. He gyrated, he spun and he swirled himself around. He even swirled, while he twirled his mic stand like baton.

After the opening song, ‘Welcome to My World’ off Delta Machine, Gahan disrobed and revealed his black vest with gold backing. He continued the vest theme for the entire evening, switching them out during the night, but at one point, the vest would come off completely.

Before getting too sexy, Depeche Mode found a way to tap into the most emotional parts of the audience when they performed ‘Precious’ with a backdrop of dogs displayed sitting on a sidewalk, one at a time. I think I got a lump in my throat. Thankfully, they quickly took us out of the somber moment when they kicked it up a notch with ‘Black Celebration’. The evenings’ mood was accurately summed up with ‘Soothe My Soul,’ a track from the latest album, Delta Machine, as Gahan leapt onto a riser to shamelessly shook his tail feather.

Despite Gahan’s attractive and enjoyable display of energy, head songwriter, Martin Gore was capable of capturing the attention of the audience during his solo moments during songs ‘Home ‘ and ‘But Not Tonight’. Surely, Gore had his work cut out for him, as Gahan’s “in-your-face” audience appeals would be hard to match. And, where was Gahan during all of this? Adoring his bandmate, Gore with graceful bows.

For a band that has been in existence over 30 years, Depeche Mode has also found a way to successfully integrate their greatest hits with new material. A monstrous feat that has boggled the minds of established bands for years.

‘Enjoy the Silence’ off their 1990 album, Violator, was performed with a sexy video backdrop looping incremental movements of nude female contortionists being filmed whilst lying upon glass. During this sexy display, Gore takes center stage to play his electric guitar.

Now, it wouldn’t be right if we didn’t hear them perform, ‘Personal Jesus,’ which began with a very slow tempo, but eventually found its way up to the more recognizable tempo. Everyone would ultimately oblige Gahan’s request to “reach out and touch faith.”

The concert would soon come to an end, but not before a five song encore and not before he turned us all on by tugging upon his low-rise waistband during ‘I Feel You.’ When does this love affair between Gahan and the audience end? Hopefully, not too soon because we still hadn’t yet experienced early 80’s Depeche Mode. Then it happens, their 1981 hit single, ‘Just Can’t Get Enough.’

After sincerely enjoying an evening with Depeche Mode, a band filled with a rich and colorful history, it becomes clear that not only is this is a band we have all matured with, but a band that has truly matured with its fans.

Welcome to My World

Despite being a part of the music scene for only four years before his untimely death, he is considered one of the most influential electric guitarists of all time. Jimi’s guitar made the “most unusual sounds of an unusual music”. Jimi was only 27 years old at the time of this death.

VOYAGES OF RC! Jacuzzi Boys Album Release Show w/ Kenny Millions, Rat Bastard and Shark Valley Sisters @ Churchill’s Pub Miami (9/7/13)

September 12, 2013 in New Release Tuesday, Now Stream This!, Voyages of Rock Cousteau by rock6847

JBs album release 20

The excitement was brewing as we entered Churchill’s Pub last Saturday night. Excitement over the fact that Jacuzzi Boys’ 3rd album would be released in just a few days, excitement that they would perform before all their adoring fans, and excitement that Shark Valley Sisters would fill our ears with pleasant tunes. As we have been following the Jacuzzi Boys, we have noticed one thing, this band is getting better every single time they perform. Miami’s own has been gaining traction all over the world, as their eponymous 3rd album has been streaming on Pitchfork Advance and they continue to be the focus of attention in a few mainstream publications. Below, you’ll find our photos capturing all the fantastic moments throughout the evening.

But before Jacuzzi Boys would hit the stage, Miami’s freaky merchants of rock, Kenny Millions and Rat Bastard, got a chance to shake their tail feathers for us all. These Miami legends shared their signature sounds with loud saxophones and guitar noise, all well complimented by hardcore porn streaming at their backs.

Between sets, DJs Tom Tuna and Regurgitate spun some awesome sounds, as person after person continued to flow into Churchill’s. Shark Valley Sisters, a duo comprised of Rob Elba and Fausto Figueredo, would sandwich the freaky merchants of rock and the “Hot Tub Boys”. Rob and Fausto would shed their previous membership in Load and The Holy Terrors to create this new punk republic in Shark Valley Sisters. Although we have seen them perform in their previous incarnations, this was our first live exposure to Shark Valley Sisters. There might not be enough adjectives to describe our first impression of this band, but “awesome” pretty much sums it up. SVS is simply a stunning punk rock duo with just the right amount of attitude. SVS is a drummer and guitarist, that’s it. One thing ring trues with these guys, they LOVE what they do. Prince and the Punk combines a variety of old-school sounds with original flava-flave. Just listen and you’ll come to your own conclusions. Below, you’ll get a chance to listen to their debut album, Prince and the Punk.

Churchill’s Pub, otherwise known as the “birthplace” of the Jacuzzi Boys, was prepared for an onslaught of sound, as the audience gathered together gracefully to see what might possibly develop this time around. Everything felt complete, as the crowd continued to swell, Diego set up the fog machine, and the Jacuzzi Gals took their rightful spot on the stage alongside the band.

As he thanked the crowd for coming out, Gabriel’s signature locks streamed over his eyes and he shot into a set that would include a healthy mix of the new and old. As the evening continued, space inside the venue would diminish and various dance moves would ensue. At some point, Diego was motioning for someone to get a bottle of champagne so he could spray the crowd, but the message didn’t get across clearly and ultimately led to someone at the bar spraying the stage, the band and some of the audience with a bottle of champagne. Sometimes, communication gets lost.

Why did this show mean so much to us? What made this show so important? This “event” was simply an acknowledgement to ourselves and the rest of the world that rock music has found a place in South Florida and we are a point on the map where music lives.
