Do you like to Rock? I sure do, and one band that can always be relied upon to bring the Rock is Monster Magnet, fronted by one of the last great American rock gods, Dave Wyndorf! It is true that this particular Sunday morning is kind of a suckfest, because it’s the first day of Daylight Saving Time, which blows, because that means we have lost one hour of precious weekend sleep. Lame City. So, let’s focus instead on how much better this morning will be, now that we have a new Monster Magnet tune and video to kick our asses into a waking state. You’re welcome!
This rad clip, “Ejection,” is actually a smokin’ hot, rocket-fueled cover of a tune by Lemmy’s old band from the ’70s, Hawkwind! Fans may recall that Monster Magnet previously covered Hawkwind’s “The Right Stuff” on 2004’s Monolithic Baby!, so you know that Dave is a big fan. The original song is a true ’70s classic and couldn’t be a better indication of what to expect from the new album! I also enjoy the visuals of what looks like the band performing while floating across the vast cosmos as a volcano erupts in the background. Or something like that.
“Ejection” is the second single from MindFucker — Monster Magnet’s eleventh studio album — which will be released on March 23rd, 2018 via Napalm Records. Enjoy!
Oh boy, here’s a good one! This week’s Video Clip, courtesy of Belgian rockers Black Mirrors will coax you right out of any residual funk, because it is called “Funky Queen” — and it kicks ass all over the place! If Janis Joplin, Jack White, Anouk, Nirvana and Queens Of The Stone Age ever had the chance to breed, Black Mirrors might have been their very attractve spawn. Black Mirrors is Belgium’s answer to pretty much every rock band out there: fronted by the stunning vocalist Marcella Di Troia, these guys manage to gather an endless amount of influences which have been ruling the rock n’ roll universe for decades, combining them seamlessly into Black Mirrors‘ very own addictive sound.
The artfully-shot-in-black-and-white performance-based video for “Funky Queen” was filmed and edited by Van’s Ography and it perfectly showcases Di Troia’s incredible vocal chops, on-stage charisma and undeniable sass! “Funky Queen” is the title song from Black Mirrors‘ upcoming 4-song EP, due out on March 3rd, 2017 via Napalm Records!
