AWOPBAMBOOM VOL. 2 – Music Tips 4 Music People

This week’s AWOPBAMBOOM:

Cage The Elephant; OMD; Pet Shop Boys; Fidlar; Hunters; and more . . .

***

“Cage The Elephant” has a new album coming out of the gates on Oct. 8th. It’s called “Melophobia”. A preview is below:

The video that has us scratching our heads for a while is OMD’s “Night Cafe.”

For a less puzzling 80s throwback, here’s the Pet Shop Boys’ new looker featuring the city of Shanghai.

Band Name of the Week: Jamaican Queens

The Detroit duo has unspooled a trippy video: “Can’t Say No To Annie.”

***

If you’re looking for a pared-down punk sing-along with a Violent Femmes bent, may we suggest FIDLAR’s “Awkward.”

If sing-alongs aren’t your thing, then this bust-up may be up your alt-alley. The rebel yell is called “Narcissist” and it’s by the “Hunters.”

Japanese rocker Yoshiko goes classical, works with the likes of Beatles producer Sir George Martin and has an international hit on his hands. A teaser for Yoshiki’s just-released album “Yoshiki Classical” is below:

Know Nahko? We didn’t and we’re glad someone pointed us his way. Nahko is an American thump-hop singer whose seven-minute song “Build A Bridge” may have the makings of a tribal classic.

***

A singer by the name of “Seasick Mama” definitely has our attention with her video “Man Overboard.” The rest of her EP “Tip Top Shape” washes to shore next month.

***

As we wind down this week’s AWOPBAMBOOM, “Ravenna Woods” lays down a moody pulse-pounder with their single “Live Alone.”

***

Finally, gotta have a favorite Norwegian band, right? Ours, for now, is “Highasakite”.

Until next week, click on, clickin’ on.
