The Grand Minnows – “Diamond Man”

November 27, 2014 at 1:59 pm

The Grand Minnows

The Grand Minnows, who I wrote about earlier this year, have released a new EP, “Diamond Man”, with three songs. They write that they wanted to create a stronger rock vibe to the sound with more speed but still easy to listen to. And I think they’ve succeeded quite well with that. The guitars are rawer, it feels more straight on with more energy and they are moving more and more into post grunge, still expressing their great sense of catchy melodies. If you’re in Kalmar (Sweden) on Saturday 29/11 you can see them play live at Witten right before Truckfighters.

New songs from Peacock Farm, The Grand Minnows, Blackstrap and Rebstar

Peacock Farm – “Monogram (Plum Run)”

Peacock Farm is a band from Stockholm which shares members with Alexandria and is soon releasing a new vinyl EP. “Monogram (Plum Run)” is the name of the first track, a track that reminds me of Pink Floyd and early Genesis and overall a sound that breathes of the dynamic seventies. Great music.

The Grand Minnows – “Televised”

After the EP debut last month The Grand Minnows are back with a new single, “Televised”. I do recognise them, but they sound a bit different now, more dirty, more indie rock and feels even sharper than before.

Blackstrap – “Monument”

Blackstrap are releasing their third song, “Monument”, from their upcoming album; a Nine Inch Nails-influenced dense shoegaze, which you can also hear on the earlier song “Monoheart” here below. I couldn’t help but adding the psychadelic “Make Sense Make Change (Feat. Victoria Bergsman)” from last year too.

Rebstar – “My Way”

Here’s a new hip hop single from Rebstar, different from what I’ve heard before from him, minimalistic in comparison, 8bits-synth sounding and rock hard.

The Grand Minnows – “Friday Lights” EP

The Grand Minnows

The Grand Minnows was formed last year by five friends. Three of them met during their time in the band El Capitanos, but together the band members have quite a list of bands on their CV, bands like Soul Sinister, Vains of Jenna, Cadillacos, Noise Bastards and The Underdogs to name a few. Last week they released the debut EP”Friday Lights”; three tracks of melancholic rock with a hint of american alt rock. Here are two of the songs:
