JOHNNY TEMPLE of FAKE NAMES – Song For Ewe

“By 1980 synthesizers were moving to the front of the mix in Gary Numan’s music, but back in 1978 when Tubeway Army was recorded, the guitars and bass were louder and dirtier. I’ll never get tired of hearing the guitars kick in sixty seconds into “Listen to the Sirens.” I don’t know if Kurt Cobain was a Tubeway Army fan, but lyrically, this song and the album as a whole seem to be violently alienated uncles to Bleach and Nevermind.”

JASON BALLA of DEHD – Song For Ewe

“I haven’t been able to stop listening to Physical Medium’s Serotonin 1. It’s an hour long mix that really covers a lot of ground musically, but is unified by a syrup-slow drip that is both heavy and hypnotic. One of the shining moments comes about half way through in the form of a Big L sample from “How Will I Make It?” I’ve never heard that track before and I can’t remember a time where I head banged so hard. Definitely not since quarantine started, that’s for sure.”
