Friday's Playlist: Let's Jam!

The title of this Friday's Playlist is pretty self-explanatory. These aren't songs, really. Those are some hot jams. Long, exploratory noodling guitar solos. Maybe even bass solos. I know this is the stuff of nightmares for a lot of people. What's wrong with them?

D-A-D- @ Petit Bain, Paris - November 24th, 2019

Danish rock n'roll lifers D-A-D are back with A Prayer for the Loud, their first new record in almost a decade, and it's a banger.

The album is full of their usual brand of killer boogie rock, but that's not even the best news. The best news is that they're touring to promote this new rock and roll statement and I was lucky enough to catch them last night at Le Petit Bain, a cool Parisian venue located on a barge on the river Seine.

Suprême NTM @ Accorhotels Arena, Paris - 23 novembre 2019

Une fois n'est pas coutume, cette chronique est rédigée en français. Parce que Suprême NTM (que, dans un souci de concision nous abrévierons en NTM pour le reste de cet article) est un produit de son environnement et de son époque. Ce qui veut dire que si vous n'avez pas connu la France du début des années quatre-vingt-dix, il y a peu de chances que vous soyiez ému à l'idée que NTM ait donné hier soir son dernier concert. Si, si. Juré, promis, glavioté! On ne les y reprendra plus.

Devin Townsend @ Salle Pleyel, Paris - November 15th, 2019

After dissolving his Devin Townsend Project a couple of years ago, Devin Townsend wasted no time in recording and releasing one of the more bonkers records in his catalogue, which is both an accomplishment and a compliment. Empath is a sensory overload from beginning to end, a dizzying flux of ideas and sounds that can leave the listener a little overwhelmed. The big question was, how would this transfer to the stage?

Friday's Playlist: Awesome Covers (part two)

This is another playlist comprised entirely of covers. We did that a few weeks ago and it was a big hit, so we're doing it again. Also it buys us time while we think of new themes for future playlists.
