BarryGruff’s May 2015 Playlist


A regular monthly feature to the blog; a nice, neat and handy playlist of tracks featured during the month.

May was another fine month for new music. We had an exclusive premier of The Expert’s new tune, ‘Da Wha?’, the lead single from his forthcoming LP. There were new tunes from Sleaford Mods, Girlpool, Applescal & Tame Impala, ahead of their respective, forthcoming albums. There were excellent new singles from Tomorrows, Telegram, SertOne, Roots Manuva, Foreign/National, The Adventures of Bert & Henry and PANKHABILLI.

Also featuring on the playlist are: GEM_DOS, The North Sea, Disconcerting P, Sweet Baboo, Heaters & Faith Healer. Yeah, so, May was pretty damn good.

Heaters – ‘Mean Green’


Heaters are Michigan based trio – Andrew Tamlyn, Nolan Krebs and Joshua Korf – who’s thing, so to speak, is loud, raw and highly addictive psych-meets-surf, rock ‘n roll.

To date they already have a handful of homespun EPs and split records to their name but have teamed up with Brooklyn-based psych label ‘Beyond Beyond is Beyond’ Records to release a 7” single, as well an expected debut LP. The 7″ is comprised of two tracks, ‘Mean Green’ and backed with ‘Levitate Thigh’. ‘Mean Green’ is a fast and furious, full-blooded and aggressive, fuzzy, distortion fueled wall of sound, that marks out the band’s intent and kicking the proverbial arse. ‘Levitate Thigh’ meanwhile, opens with a stuttering slow-rolling tempo before settling into a scuzzy, rock n roll groove, of snarling guitar, feedback and drums. If it’s groovy, surf-centric slabs of sonic stomp you’re after, look no further. Heaters are your new best friends.

You can check out ‘Mean Green’ &’Levitate Thigh’ below. The 7″ is out now & available from here.
