-valis Pick of the Week
Hail Voyagers!!! Our Pick this week come from Iceland: Singapore Sling! They've just released their seventh album, The Tower Of Foronicity, on Fuzz Club Records.
As Henrik Björnsson, main man behind the band states on With Guitars dot com: "The new songs were written and recorded at Henrik’s home studio in winter 2011/2012 and in February/March 2014. To the band’s front-man, “Foroncity” is a made up word that means “ridiculousness” and “adversity” at the same time, in other words “so much adversity that it’s just ridiculous”. “Foroncity levels have been extremely high this year” and Henrik adds: “The Tower of Foroncity is endless, it goes on and on and on, and when you think you are at the top you really are at the bottom”. Such statement is not a surprise, as it comes from the man who named his project after an obscure 90s film by Nikolai Nikoladis: a perverse and dark movie about a man who has sex with a corpse." For those who need more Surfgaze n' Psych' in their life, along with a heavy helping of the Jesus & Mary Chain sound, I highly recommend this one!
You can listen to the archived stream here; or, hear it this Friday, on The Dead Man's Turn Me On, Dead Man show on Live365, where it's heard every Friday at noon eastern time, as well as Mr. Atavist's Sunrise Ocean Bender show, heard every other Thursday from 11pm to 1 am eastern, on WRIR in Richmond, VA.
Adding the Pick of the Week to their show is Dogs Got A Bone out of Edinburgh, Scotland, from 10pm to midnight, Mondays, U.K. time, (adjust accordingly,) on Belter Radio. Thanks Col Chant!
