Kate and After – “Things to Do”

October 4, 2010 at 3:18 pm

Kate and After“Things to Do” is the debut EP from Kate and After. I wrote about them in January and it’s obvious that a lot has happened since then.

They called in Henryk Lipp as the producer to the EP and together they have created a new sound for the band. It’s more energetic and heavy while the hammond has found it’s right place and adds a nice retro luster to their indie rock/pop. The vocals are dubbed, more edgy and brings an up-to-date feeling of the sound. Well, it feels like the entire band has stepped forward and demands more space.

You can listen to two of the songs from “Things to Do” here below. On their site you can listen more and also download the EP. It’s also available on Spotify.

Me, Myself and I
The Pretender

Revolve

RevolveRevolve was formed in 2003 in Uppsala by the two brothers Nils and Per Tengvar. They now live in Göteborg and there they recorded, last year, their debut album “Burning Money”, with Henryk Lipp as a producer.

With Henryk Lipp as the producer, you might suspect that this is about rock, and rock it is. The first thing that comes to my mind is classic eighties’ hard rock, but it is more and more mixed with the vibes from rock of a later date, foremost in the spirit of Foo Fighters. All in all it turns out to be a strong and even album so why not listen to a couple of tracks here below?:

In You
Blessed By Less

You can find Revolve on their site and on their Myspace page or on Spotify you can listen to the album.

Dollface

DollfaceJoshua Homme, from Queens of the Stoneage, has run a music collective called “Desert Session”, since 1997. Musicians, mostly rock musicians, gather in the desert for a few weeks at Joshua Tree, and make music together. The results are published on a record named “Desert Session”. Among the bands and artists that have participated you’ll find Monster Magnet, Kyuss, Soundgarden and many more! A band that Joshua should invite is Dollface!

The music that Dollface delivers is a well composed rock music, that attracts me using nice Les Paul carpets and guitar melodies that floats on top of it. The vocals are very professional and with a great presence.
Listen to “Bad Boy”, which presents some kind of arranged chaos, and the first time I heard it I thought that they wouldn’t be able to sort it out…but what a great song it is!

I don’t know if it’s the band that’s behind the arrangements or if it’s the producer Henryk Lipp.  Lipp, a producer that, among others, has worked with Thåström, Sator and Håkan Hellström.

Some songs to enjoy and download:
Bad Boy
Anything Goes
