SWIT’s Top 10 of 2017 #1

And so it comes to this, choosing 10* amazing songs from a year of amazing songs. We got something going on, thanks to Gerry for being such a congenial co-host here on Super World Indie Tunes, he’s a class act, so class. Anyhows here’s my ultra top tunes from 2017, in no particular order because…

SWIT’S Best Of 2017 Part 1

We’ve posted nearly a billion tunes this year and they were all great to begin with, so whittling that down to the best odd 100 or so was never going to be an easy task, it is with great pleasure (at re-listening to everything again and again) and pain (at having to exclude some great…

Drink chablis and dig Jef Maarawi

Jef Maarawi – Reverend Jones It’s Inner Ear Records double weirdness today, following our post of Bazooka earlier. Here’s “Reverend Jones”, another far-out freak-out moon-age daydream from Jef Maarawi. It’s a psyche-folk meditation on infamous holy man Reverend Jones that collapses into a rather wonderful jazz breakdown. The titles roll and a 1957 Chevrolet Bel…

I listen to Bazooka while smoking a hookah and punching a palooka

Bazooka – “Ζούγκλα”(Jungle) “Ζούγκλα” (Jungle) is the new single by Athens-based Bazooka, from their forthcoming EP of the same name on Inner Ear Records. Well, this is a trip, a wild ride, a psychedelic head-melting head-fuck, a question without an answer, a T-Rexified stomp through the jungles of your mind. The animals are out there,…

I’m the Celt who loves May Roosevelt

May Roosevelt – Air “Air” is the new single by May Roosevelt from forthcoming LP “Junea” out on October 23 via Inner Ear. So much happens in Air’s 5:32, it’s a journey, an electronic symphony, a minimalist Gregorian chant, it flows through steel cathedrals, deep underwater and skirts the highest peaks, it’s ominous and enchanting….

My kayak turned into a canoe when I heard Matina Sous Peau

Matina Sous Peau – Μεταμορφώσεις Filled with yearning, the wonderfully wistful bossa-tinged ballad Μεταμορφώσεις (metamorphosis) is Matina Sous Peau’s take on the Vlassis Mponatsos original and also one side of the newest addition to Inner Ear Record’s “A Distant Victory Singles Club”. It’s another beauty. SWIT YouTube Playlist Week 40 SWIT Playlist 2017 SWIT Soundcloud…

Super World Interview Time: Eleni Karageorgou AKA Post Lovers

Post Lovers recently released the brilliant Melbourne & Going Anyway on double way-hay!! side 7″ as part of Inner Ear’s “A Distant Victory Singles Club”. Check classic indie guitar-driven surfs-up tunes that immediately lodge in the mind, they stood out for me as a cut above the norm so we were delighted and excited when…

Abracadabra! It’s The Man From Managra

I’m off to watch Mayo play Dublin (again) in the All-Ireland final today. I’m from Mayo and we’ve been in many finals over the past 15 years or so, however, we’ve lost all of them. In fact we’ve won SFA since 1951 so you could say we’ve been sipping on sorrow for much too long,…

Going places with Post Lovers

Post Lovers – Going Anyway Not sure we’ve featured the same artist twice in one week before on SWIT, so this is a second and a first – this is the other side of Post Lovers – this is Going Anyway – sixties-tinged/garage/surf pop, its a perfectly carefree summer travelogue with a video to match….

It’s a stamp of approval for Post Lovers

Post Lovers – Melbourne “Melbourne”, by Athens’ Post Lovers, is the latest addition to Inner Ear’s 7-inch series “A Distant Victory Singles Club”, it’s my favourite so far as well. Love the vocals, the guitar, the downbeat delicious sadness, well it’s the whole vibe of the thing Your Honour. SWIT YouTube Playlist Week 28 SWIT…

Break out the Calpol because we’ve got Fever Kids

Fever Kids – Living In Fame Fever Kids are SWIT favorite Σtella and Keep Shelly In Athens’ Guitarist Alex Z. They’ve recorded a new 7″ single for Inner Ear’s “A Distant Victory Singles Club” series. This is the A-side and it’s a cracker – disco beats, hypnotic vocals, funktastic base and some pretty grovvy guitars…

There’s a bluebird in my heart – 2 By Bukowski feat. Kid Moxie

2 By Bukowski feat. Kid Moxie – Hot Summer/Beast’s Breath This is my first (and second) encounter with 2 By Bukowski, they’ve hooked up with actress/pop star Kid Moxie for new single “Hot Summer”. It’s comes over all Night Clubbing, this summer is too hot, strange guitars, drugged up vocals, a long drive through the…
