New Music Friday
This friday, first-timers show up alongside more experienced artists on your weekly speed date with new music.Return to overview
Brussels debutante Angèle already made her mark on the stage of the big summer festivals. Today she finally releases her first album. The title ‘Brol’ (meaning ‘rubbish’) could not be further from the truth. In Belgium, her first hit ‘La Loi de Murphy’ (Murphy’s Law) set both sides of the linguistic border on fire. The Netherlands, as well as France, are expected to be conquered soon. Angèle is the younger sister of rap star Roméo Elvis. Dad Marka (singer and bass player of Allez Allez) is one proud father.
‘A Star Is Born’ seems to be the most appropriate term here, not coincidentally the title of the film debut of Lady Gaga. Co-star Bradley Cooper makes his directional debut. Turns out Bradley can act, direct ànd sing! The soundtrack, featuring songs (and duets) from both superstars, is available for your ears now.
Some very experienced males in their forties are back after a short absence. Novastar, Bent Van Looy and Danny De Munk hope you find their latest efforts worth the wait.
The sparkling guys from You Me At Six, Go March, Papa Roach, Behemoth and The Sore Losers bring you fresh male guitar vibes for the weekend.
Lovers of strong, mature women who know how to handle a guitar, will be thrilled to hear news from Cat Power and KT Tunstall.
This week we said ‘adieu’ to the great Charles Aznavour, a pioneer of the French ‘Chanson’. Fans of the French art of singing might find solace in new work from Miossec, Gaëtan Roussel or Ycare.
So, start playing with Tunify and you will find yourself in excellent company this weekend!
