Current music recommendations

If I have one recommendation, it's DeWolff.

DeWolff is a dutch bluesrock/retro-rock trio (guitar/vocals, hammond organ and drums), for me they are proof that the rock music we all love is still very much alive.

Their music will remind you of Deep Purple, Allman Brothers Band and also a bit of Led Zep & The Doors.

I've seen them live quite a few times and these talented young rockers really put on a good show!

Check out their gig in Eindhoven, The Netherlands (from early 2014):

Enjoy,

Maaike

Couldn't get this link to work (on my mobile - no surprise!) so went for a wander in utube to hear some of their music. They are talented - like their bluesy feel. Prefer their simpler tracks without too much organ. Will keep an eye out for them touring here. Thanks Maaike

Sorry you couldn't open the youtube clip.......

Actually, they already have done s short tour of Australia, together with Wolfmother. Who knows, maybe they'll come back to Australia........

Their touring schedule is on their website: www.dewolff.nu

Anyway, I'm glad to hear you like them. Good music still is out there these days, but you really have to seek it out.

^ Very true.

These guys have been around a while but are still making new albums & great music: The Backsliders featuring Dom Turner on vocals & guitar & former Midnight Oil drummer, Rob Hirst. Ausrtralia's best contemporary blues band IMHO.

Meant to say that I thought their name sounded vaguely familiar - now I know where I've heard it - the Wolfmother tour promotions. Would have been a good combination & show overall. Sorry to have missed them. Will look out for future tours.

Another young guy I heard at Bluesfest last year was Matthew Curry - only about 18 but has a big voice & is a very talented blues guitarist. Think he will be even more awesome with a bit more life experience under his belt.

I've been listening to a Scottish band called Mogwai a lot recently. Their latest album (released this year) is probably my least favourite of theirs, but it's still very good.

Id like to go see original Primus once again. Theyre gonna be here the 15th of Nov. The ticket prices though... $60 nosebleed seats.

Yea I've considered it too man. They'll probably play the new album in its entirety plus a set of Primus tunes, like they did at the New Years Eve show. I'll probably just listen to the boots though lol, save some dough.

BTW did you listen to the whole album? I think it exceeded my expectations, GREAT sounding record, lots of nice psychedelic touches. Sounds like Primus meets Frog Brigade, which is pretty much what it is lol.

HIGHLY recommend Tame Impala. They're an Australian band whose third album is coming out this July. They're like Sgt. Peppers' and White Album with some psychedelic synths mixed in. It sounds like a psychedelic rock album straight outta 1968. Their singer sounds just like John Lennon, too, it's pretty shocking!

I just saw them on June 4th and they're absolutely unbelievable live. Their stuff is so catchy and atmospheric. One of my favorite bands, definitely check them out. Prepare for too many videos linked below :bubble:

^very Beatle-esque!

^ one of their new ones

I bought 'Sonic Praise', the debut album by Ecstatic Vision that came out this week.
Superb stuff, this track in particular blew my socks off.

That was cool at first, above post, but way too long and mechanical

This song made me think of how far zep took rock music with dazed and confused 1973...nobody can go further

Mastodon is a fine metal band, incorporating prog, psychedelia, and many other genres into their music. Also, though not very contemporary, those who like post rock and drone/avant garde type music should look into Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

Aaron Freeman, freeman

great band, hybrid stuff like queens of the stone age and rage against the machine, it leans towards metal from what ive heard on yutub, but there is hard rock, acid, punk, mixed up in most songs. I am definitely buying this last record from them.
