Top songs: Rival Sons claim No.1 spot in our latest Tracks Of the Week poll
12. Spiders – Weekend Nights Spiders are Sweden’s latest rock sensations, “brimming with the energy and raw riffs of the early 70s, the high-octane three-minute raunch of Suzi Quatro and The Dictators, and enough modern-day suss to put any contemporary ‘stoner’ or ‘garage band’ to shame” (it sez ‘ere).
13. = Colt 45 – Everybody Will Let You Down Colt 45′s new EP, Inside The Triangle, was crafted with producer Romesh Dodangoda (Funeral For A Friend, Kids In Glass Houses, The Blackout, Twin Atlantic, Motorhead, Glassjaw, Manics…) at his Longwave Studios in Cardiff. It will be released on November 12 and focuses on good storytelling via melodic punk rock. Commenting on Inside The Triangle’s content, the Cumbrian band’s drummer Adam Lewis says: “Lead track Happiness Is A Dying Art is a pop-tastic tale of lost friends, reminiscing, and self-analysis, but it’s impossible not to smile when you hear it! Our most immediate track on this EP, Everybody Will Let You Down, offers three minutes of fists-in-the-air punk rock, and a tasty breakdown for good measure. The slower I’m Drowning, Not Waving nods toward a more melodic side of our sound, and gives the harmonies room to shine. Final track Brick Wall is our ode to some favourite hard-rocking, big-riffing artists – Nirvana, Rise Against, Fugazi, Hot Water Music. You get the picture.”
