Fresh Music Report #3

Hey, so the keen eyed of you will have noticed I've dropped the word "weekly" from this inbox report post, because basically im not going to be able to keep it up weekly, and anyway i decided it shouldn't be a chore to write which it could be with pressure to write it at a set time. Anyway my inbox has been full of really great new music of late, so this post was easy to write and thats how it should be. Enjoy!

First up its a band i wrote about a couple of months ago called CHAINGANG. For those who don't know, CHAINGANG are a four piece from Australia who with previous track "Get Off My Stage" caused a stir from the UK to the US, and with a new track they are set to take things to the next level. Their sound? Well its an enticing mix of punk rock beats, intricate and powerful guitars, mixed with infectious vocals from frontlady Hayley. All in all it makes for a very refreshing and exciting sound which leaves me wanting more! CHAINGANG Myspace


Next we have an American band from Los Angeles called Drive A. The band consist of four guys, Bruno Mascolo (Lead Guitar/Vocals), Jason Nott (Rhythm Guitar), Ashton Moio (Bass), and Terry Stirling (Drummer). All these guys are pretty young, all still in their teens, which is remarkable once you hear how mature their sound is. Their style is full on rocking out, lots of awesome guitar solos, and plenty of head banging opportunities. Its really good! Their debut self titled album should be released soon, and i'm very much looking forward to that. Drive A Myspace


GTA are two guys from Oxford in the UK, who are soon to be releasing their debut album of hip hop goodness. The album is titled "The Way" and will be released soon, in the mean time a single from said album will be released on 14th April called "Wanna Be Myself". Its a really chilled out track with a wicked beat and witty lyrics, its the kind of hip hop that the UK is missing right now. Check out the Music Liberation myspace where GTA have posted the video of the single, its pretty funny. GTA Myspace


Best Of The Rest

Natty - Solo artist from North London in the UK. His style is really mellow and chilled, makes you wanna get a beer and catch some rays! You could fit him anywhere within the Reggae, Hip Hop, even Indie bracket, he's pretty diverse.Natty Myspace


Lowline - Coming from Manchester in the UK, Lowline are set to be the next big thing. Counting The Verve's Nick McCabe as a fan already, these guys have a big powerful indie sound which should serve them well. Their debut single is called "Monitors" and is out on 17th March on 1234 Records. Lowline Myspace


Marvin - First impressions of Marvin is the real honesty in his lyrics, particuarly from the track "First Born", which is taken from forthcoming album "Devil In The Distance". He's also collaberated with Example and Akira The Don, aswell as some other artists on an E.P titled "Superfriends" which is out on 21st April. Marvin Myspace
