I always seem to leave you guys for the summer. I think it's because I DJ a lot of dances, house parties, BBQs, and other functions this time of year, so I'm usually balls deep Pop music. My passion for music doesn't stop at Hard Rock. I try to stay on top of everything, which is no easy feat. My trick is I stay away from that Top 40 shit. Heh.

Anyway, I thought I would share some of the good stuff I've discovered this year. Bear with me:

 

Earth, Wind & Fire - Guiding Lights

Good thread. My tuppence:

 

Surprisingly (for me at least) I like the Earth, Wind & Fire track. I like the first Wildcat! Wildcat! track too, the second I found pretty boring. They massively remind me of Mew, a band that I quite like, although I really prefer their more upbeat stuff.

 

The others don't do much for me, especially the Gilgamesh tune, which makes me want to break things.

Heh, fair enough. I figured that'd be the track most likely to get folks here heated.

 

Anyway, here are a few more tracks. Hopefully, these won't inspire vandalism:

 

Breakbot - Programme

Okay, here are two that may incite a riot:

Little Daylight is quite pleasant, much better than 99% of the rubbish that I hear on the radio, but I'm finding the tune a little bland. The Jaymes Young track, though - sorry, but I really hate that. One of the most boring pieces of 'music' I've heard for ages.

Strange Talk - So So La La

 

 

BTW, love that one!

 

 

I'm also really liking this. Not particularly summery, but not rock or metal:

Were you already familiar with Strange Talk? Actually, what is radio like over there? Not one of these tracks is, or will be played on any of our radio stations.

Nope, never heard of them.

 

Some of this stuff might get played on Radio 2, which is the BBC's more conservative radio station. It plays a mixture of modern and older music, but none of the dance / R&B rubbish that dominates the other stations. I don't know about these songs specifically, but that Lissie song was on there and they play stuff that sounds similar to Strange Talk, etc.

 

BTW, wtf am I doing wrong? Why don't my Youtube links post as video clips any more? :huhsign:

Yeah, our CBC has a Radio 2, as well, which plays a good mix of music, but still wouldn't feature any of the aforementioned, save Grouplove. They don't play any Melodic Rock, however, but Lissie is someone that would definitely get airtime. In fact, that may be where I first heard about her.

 

As for the YouTube video embedding, I admit, I have been having issues, too. What I've done to 'remedy' the problem is, I copy/paste the url to the Facebook status bar. Without posting it, I select and copy it, again, and then paste it here. It's a bit tedious, and I don't know if my method requires Facebook, but it's been working so why change it.

Somebody on this site will probably enjoy this as much as I do. Huge 80's inspired track. Somebody in the comments stated that this sounds like Phil Collins-era Genesis and Toto. I would specify 80's-era Genesis, but, yeah. Let me know what you guys think.

Currently on my ninth consecutive spin of this track. In case you all forgot about the Pop shit I listen to, I give you Peter Thomas the man responsible for the sound of Betty Who. This track features none other than... Betty Who. So it sounds just like any other Betty Who track, but this one is under Peter Thomas' name. Oop... ten times, now.

The 80's was not my decade - born in '87 - but I said, "feck the 90's!"

 

St. Lucia is also fantastic in concert. Be sure to see them, if they stop by. I know you're in Finland, but who knows. They aren't big, yet, so tickets are generally cheap.

I didn't plan for this thread to turn into this. I originally wanted to just post newer tunes, but I'm all for more 80's Pop suggestions.

 

This has been my jam lately:

As we're on an 80's theme I thought i'd mention Kristine who is from Athens Greece.Melodicrockoz started a topic on her back in 2012 but I thought I would highlight her again as she has the 80's sound nailed.This takes you right back to the glory days.She released her Modern Love ep a while ago and all her solo stuff aswell as the other artists she collaborates with is pure 80's gold.
Check her out..........

    • Already have a conversation goings ons here.
    • After 30 + years, it's finally here.......I have just finished listening to the new CD from Metallic Blue Records by the Reno, Nevada band RAWKON.  Back in 2004, I received a 6 track demo cassette recorded by RAWKON in 1987 from a  fellow collector in Nevada.  He was extremely excited on finding this tape and wanted to share it with me.   On the first play, it immediately reminded me of another  awesome Nevada band, "ROCK BOULEVARD".   As it turns out, RAWKON consisted of one member of ROCK BOULEVARD and this demo cassette turned out to be extremely rare and sought after.   Fast forward 16 years later to today,  those 6 tracks, along with others recorded at various times of the band's life,  are right here on a silver pressed CD.  There are a total of 13 tracks here with a very nice production and impressive liner notes.   One quick note.....the first 3 tracks have a production that is certainly that of a demo and of lesser quality than the remaining 10 tracks which are excellent, so don't become immediately disappointed .   These first 3 songs are from the band's first demo which were more heavy metal and before they got a keyboard player.   Even though they don’t have the same production as the rest of the album, it’s great to have these songs  to form a more complete discography.   Starting with track 4, it all changes and the production is top notch.  The notes are filled with thorough,  in depth info on the band, it's history and with numerous photos.   Certainly a high quality, collector minded release.   Musically, there's something here to satisfy a wide variety of musical tastes.   Grinding rockers with good axe work,  some mid tempo melodic songs with nice keys, melodic melodies and some extremely smooth AOR ballads that will delight the AOR-sters a great deal!  If you enjoy bands such as ROCK BOULEVARD, THEATRE, FLYWEIL or DOKKEN, you will surely enjoy all 13 tracks that RAWKON has to offer.  My hat's off to Metallic Blue Records for bringing us this rare glimpse of melodic rock history......  
    • Back in 1990 we saw the release of the Nevada band ROCK BOULEVARD's "Self Titled" CD that became a collectors crown jewel.  Fast forward to 2020 ...... METALLIC BlUE RECORDS has released a new CD by the band titled "Stand And Fight"  which consists of tracks recorded in 1988-89 prior to their debut CD.   You read that right.....another full length ROCK BOULEVARD album with all new songs that has sat in a can all these years waiting to be rediscovered.   My hands were shaking and my heart fluttering with excitement when I received my advance copy.   When I pressed play on my CD player, I wasn't disappointed and the excitement was absolutely worthwhile......On this new 10 track release, vocals duties on seven tracks are handled by Jeff Kerr and the final three tracks feature Deland Voth's vocals.  There have been some lineup changes here and there......as a result, some fresh new sounds are part of the experience.  On several tracks, the listener is taken down some new melodic rock paths filled with keyboards and melodious layered songs that drive true melodic rock fans wild...  then swiftly taking you along another road filled with wild and crazy hair metal leaving you dizzy with delight.  The intitial style blends melodic hard rock that sounds more like US Westcoast melodic hard rock in the RATT school with a BON JOVI influence.  The remainder comes off in the vein of a more melodic SKID ROW (debut), with a touch of SILENT RAGE, LILLIAN AXE(early), JILLSON and LANCIA.   All of it with a top notch production, great backup vocals and excellent guitar work.  A huge thumbs up to Metallic Blue Records for making this one available after all these many years.   This is a "huge" release.  Along with the newly discovered material,  I was extremely impressed with the extensive liner notes, band history and photos compiled with this CD.  The liner notes alone separate an impressive release from an otherwise ordinary one.   Oh, and I should add, like all Metallic Blue Label releases, this is silver pressed and not a CD-R as is the case with many independant labels these days.    Although recorded prior to the debut, this is a worthy essential to add to your collection.   I should not fail to mention that the highly collectable self titled ROCK BOULEVARD, now titled "I Got What You Want, is also now available from Metallic Blue Records with 2 bonus tracks.   Another quality release that is silver pressed and contains an excellent 12 page booklet filled with band history and photos.   Don't wait till it's too late, get both of these great releases while they are available.   Surely they will become collectors items in the future.
    • These guys are performing via live stream this Friday. It's FREE.99, but you still need to reserve a "ticket." Hopefully that link works.   https://www.bandsintown.com/f/74655?came_from=206
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to introduce Kreek, the new band fronted by ex-Bigfoot frontman Antony Ellis. This new rock ‘n roll machine from Ellis sees him keeping his foot firmly planted in the fertile U.K. hard rock scene from which he emerged. Kreek's self-titled debut album is due out February 12, 2021. Kreek was first formed in the summer of 2019 after Ellis’ had parted ways with Bigfoot, who would eventually disband. Impressed with Ellis’ vocal ability from their time working with his previous band, Frontiers reached to Ellis about continuing to work together. Ellis had already been thinking about putting something new together and was keen to create a great new hard rock band. He soon found a group of musicians in Nick Clarke (guitar), Lee Andrews (bass), and Seb Sweet (drums) who were ready to join him and thus Kreek was born. Produced by Dan Rossall (Passion, Revolution Saints), Kreek’s self-titled debut is now ready to be unleashed! Line-up: Antony Ellis - Vocals Nick Clarke - Guitar Seb Sweet - Drums Lee Andrews – Bass   Tracklist: 1. At The Bottom Of Hell 2. Missiles 3. Meet Your Maker 4. Million Dollar Man 5. One Voice 6. Man On My Shoulder 7. Stand Together 8. Down 'N Dirty 9. Get Up 10. You’re On Your Own   www.facebook.com/KreekUK      
    • New songs 'Remember' and 'Break The Chains''.      
    • 'New' song with new lyrics, 'December (Christmas)'    
    • other then hodge twins, here are a few of the YT channels I do most of my time on. So I'm not easily won over, generally most of the YouTubers who do killer work, dont go the extra mile and invest in someone to do their VO(like me) and a great production is brought down in flames by a pussy wimpy or just irritating VO, I'm not talking about Chills, Nexpo is a channel I stumbled onto, the guy is A+, and he has a soothing unannoying voice. Spooky Rice is a brotha who revies some disturbing movies, the best kind, if you dont care he talks black, and you like fucked up movies, he really searches deep for graphic and horrifying movies.
