Hey peeps, hope your week has started well! As I told in my previous post, I've something special for this week! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's about @feedbands with whom I'm collaborating atm and I absolutely adore their concept so please let me introduce them for you guys if you don't know them already. 🤗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Feedbands is a music streaming service dedicated to surfacing new artists and they are also the world's first record label whose membres can affect which artists they release on vinyl.
So each month their members vote an album to be released on vinyl and they have already released over 70 records since 2013. They all are first pressings from independent artist and when they sell out, they don't repress. So, it's kinda take it or leave it, literally.
And that's not all, they also plant one tree for every vinyl record sold and also one tree for every 100 qualified streams, so yeah, that little hippie inside me is very excited about that. ❤ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They let me choose a few albums from their selection and oh my, I had some serious difficulties with that...
I listened samples from every album which they had available, really got hooked on them, each and every of them sounded so fresh and specific, and so I ended up going to bed just in small hours, because you know, getting to know new music is so much more important than having a good night's sleep. 😅 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, one of those albums which they sent me is 'Chronos', the sixth studio release by an American indie pop electronica band called Faded Paper Figures. It's full of electronic beats, snazzy guitar riffs, thoughtful lyrics and beautiful harmonies.
Just that kind of music what I, as a fan of old rock and rap music, didn't have in my collection yet so I'm very pleased to have now. And as usual, you can go to my IG Stories to check out how they sound like. 😊 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #ad#fadedpaperfigures#chronos#indiepop#electronica#nowspinning#vinylcollection

Genesis - Genesis (1983)
Another great find at last weekend's record convention. Such a solid album.
This is the 12th studio album from Genesis.
Favorites tonight: Home by the Sea and Second Home by the Sea.
I'm at the piano playing it now 😎
Listening to Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass) by The Rolling Stones- original UK 1st pressing from 1966 (as you may have noticed this one has a different cover to the US version and also a slightly different track listing). That almost sounds like I know what I’m talking about 😂..
What’s your favourite Rolling Stones track?
Have you ever seen them live?
Has anyone not slept with Mick Jagger?
De La Soul - 3 Feet High And Rising, on multi-color splatter vinyl. One of the best hip-hop albums of all time! De La Soul are absolute legends, and in my personal opinion, this is their best album - it showcases just how fun and playful the group can be while still maintaining peak lyrical and production skill. This album just gives off such a carefree and relaxed vibe that it’s impossible to not be happy while listening. Side note: as a community, we need to give Prince Paul the props he deserves! I know he is a legend but I feel like a lot of hip-hop fans, especially newer ones, might not be giving the KING of sampling his just dues. His sampling technique is absolutely essential to making this album, and many others, so iconic. Exclusive pressing via @vinylmeplease - we’re 3 months into 2019 and they’ve already released 2 10/10 ROTMs. Keep it up! •
The BEST DOLLAR BIN IN TOWN just got better! On March 23, the $1 bin will have about 500 DJ singles and radio promos out for sale for the first time. Mostly R&B and hip hop from the 90's and 2000's but there's some Reggae too!. Beyonce, Jay-z, Nas, Biggie, Tupac and many many more. Labels include Def Jam, Bad Boy and independent labels.
Legendary #Blues musician, #BuddyGuy . Everyone knows #MuddyWaters , but everyone needs to be put on to Little Walter, Jimmy Rogers, Buddy Guy, Otis Spann, and Willie Dixon. These are just some of the cats that formed the bands behind Muddy Waters...that helped lead to his crossover appeal. This is a Chess compilation of Buddy Guy’s cuts, #FirstTimeIMetTheBlues .
The Hirsch Effekt - Holon: Hiberno
Long Branch Records
Here is a very special one for you! May I introduce you to: The Hirsch Effekt!
You may not heard of them before. But if you are into Mathcore/ Art Core with high musically standards you should definitely check them out!
I‘m especially a huge fan of their deep lyrics, but most of you won’t understand because they are in german (google translator will translate the shit out of it! :D).
Random fact: they are from my Howntown and I heard that their rehearsel room is in my direct neighborhood 🤙
Solo projekt from the Norwegian songwriter Tomas Dahl, former drummer in Turbonegro and member of The Yum Yums among others.
It's always easy to compare this form of midtempo power pop/indie rock with Teenage Fanclub and it's exactly what it sounds like. Maybe think some Superchunk and the first Weezer album as well. Some great catchy tunes here and perfect pop hooks. Maybe the record loose some momentum on side B.
Favorite song: Contagious
On this day in 1976, Paul Kossoff died at the age of 25, from heart failure during a long flight. He is best known as the guitarist with Free. At the age of 15 he helped to found the band "Black Cat Bones," (an excellent band, which also launched the career of Simon Kirke of Bad Company, and Rod Price of Foghat.) Paul Kossoff and Simon Kirke 1st met and became friends in the band "Black Cat Bones, but they wanted to move on. Paul Kossoff saw vocalist Paul Rodgers singing with "Brown Sugar.” He was immediately impressed and asked if he could jam with Rodgers onstage. Along with Simon Kirke, they began the search for a 4th member. Alexis Korner recommended Andy Fraser; at the age of 15, Fraser had already been playing with "John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers." Korner also provided the name "Free" to the band. The most remarkable thing about Free was the young age of the band members who came together to play their 1st gig on the evening of April 19, 1968 at the "Nag's Head pub," London. Bass player Andy Fraser was 15, lead guitarist Paul Kossoff was 17, and lead singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke were 18! After the break up of Free, Paul Kossoff released his 1st solo album, "Back Street Crawler" released in 1973, the same year as Free's demise. Kossoff was able to pull himself together, with his drug addiction enough to record the album. This album features contributions from his former Free bandmates, Paul Rodgers, Simon Kirke, and Andy Fraser as well as Alan White, and Trevor Burton from Yes. Side 1 consists of one 17:32 song, "Tuesday Morning," a sprawling jam tune. Side 2 consists five great songs, reminiscent of Free and what was to soon come from Bad Company. The next career move for Kossoff came in 1975 when Simon Kirke and Paul Kossoff formed the band "Back Street Crawler." They got the name for the band from Paul Kossoff's solo album of the same name. This effort was short lived though. The band was continually overshadowed by Kossoff's drug dependency. His reliance on narcotics was common knowledge, to such a degree that he played upon it. His epitaph reads "All Right Now" #paulkossoff#backstreetcrawler#free
Sarah Shook and The Disarmers
Years (2018) @sarahshooksdisarmers @sarahfknshook
I have had the opportunity to catch Sarah and her band at least five times in the past year or so. Always an incredible performance.
#420 : Mat Kerekes - Ruby
Finally made it to record 420 and my meme dreams are satisfied. I had the pleasure of seeing Mat Kerekes in NYC on his tour and was not only able to get a flexi but also a copy of Ruby! The album is amazing and a nice evolution of the sound he introduced in Luna with Hawthorne being my standout track. Hopefully it comes out streaming sometime soon for those who couldn’t buy it but until then I take simple pleasure in knowing I’m lucky enough to hear the whole album.
In 2002, Spin magazine named Danzig II the 33rd greatest metal album of all time. The magazine's Doug Brod said that it is "perhaps the best collection of songs on a Glenn Danzig album" and remarked that Rick Rubin "mightily punched up" his production after producing Danzig's debut album.
Danzig - Danzig II: Lucifuge - Released: 26th June 1990.
Master of Reality is the third studio album by English rock band Black Sabbath, released on 21 July 1971. On the tracks "Children of the Grave", "Lord of This World", and "Into the Void", Iommi downtuned his guitar 11⁄2 steps in an effort to reduce string tension, thus making the guitar less painful for him to play. This pain was the result of a factory accident years earlier in which he had the tips of two of his fingers severed. The downtuning also helped the guitarist produce what he called a "bigger, heavier sound". Geezer Butler also downtuned his bass guitar to match Iommi. "It helped with the sound, too", Butler explained to Guitar for the Practicing Musician in 1994. "Then it got to the point where we tuned even lower to make it easier vocal-wise. But Ozzy (Osbourne) would then sing higher so it sort of defeated the object." Osbourne states that he cannot remember much about recording Master of Reality "apart from the fact that Tony detuned his guitar to make it easier to play, Geezer wrote 'Sweet Leaf' about all the dope we'd been smoking, and 'Children of the Grave' was the most kick-ass song we'd ever recorded." During the album's recording sessions, Osbourne brought Iommi a large joint which caused the guitarist to cough uncontrollably. Iommi was recording acoustic guitar parts at the time, and his coughing fit was captured on tape: A fragment of Iommi's coughing was later added by producer Bain as the intro to "Sweet Leaf," a song which was admittedly an ode to marijuana use. Iommi recalls "
Tony Iommi – guitar, synthesizer on "After Forever," flute and piano on "Solitude", acoustic guitar on "Orchid"
Geezer Butler – bass guitar
Bill Ward – drums, percussion on "Children of the Grave", sleigh bells on "Solitude"

March vinyl challenge by @waxbygraves. March 19th: "Last Show". Christian Kjellvander, @Nalen, Stockholm November 17 2008. An amazing concert on the back of my favourite album of 2018, 'Wild Hxmans'. This is his 2012 album 'The Rough And The Rynge'. A quiet and subdued affair but intense and amazing songs amid a sparse production with the songs mainly recorded live.
