November 17th top tracks of the moment

In need on some new music? Here’s the top track of the moment picked by DJ Mel

2014-04-23 19.38.07-1First, here’s a band I discovered at the beginning of the year back on my journey to North Wales. If you need some heavy rock, edgy guitars, you will definitely fall in love with Blood Lips. In the heart of the North West of the UK, this three piece delivers dark rock’n’roll and  just released their first EP, Brittle Bones on the independent label Ear To Ear Records.

All four tracks is a travel back to the good old days of grunge with a touch of modern indie. You can download or listen tracks here:


If you’re more into traditional britpop and catchy indie pop, you can try some Why We Love. Hailing from the southern climate of Bristol, Why We Love just released Fake A Death EP. it’s always a delight to listen to their sunshiney tracks


If you hop into Cardiff, you can then discover The Echo And The Always with their brand new single Go Easy. This song is a tasty piece of pop, reminiscing of some Canadian gems like Metric or even Tegan and Sara. The Cardiff indie four-piece have a soulful melodic sense that worths being discovered.



Then, for those who wants to discovered some kind of new shoegaze, you can check out Elastic Sleep from Cork, in Northern Ireland. Musically, it’s a journey into noisey distorted guitars with a magic voice. Truly enchanting!


And finally, why not picking a band that we really love and saw a couple of times live. After releasing two albums, they are back with the release of a deluxe edition of War Room Stories. Yeah we definitely talk here about Breton. Great to see the guys are so prolific musically and offers this brand new deluxe version with not only one, but 9 new tracks like Titan and other catchy beats. Electro and rock clashes perfectly in a mix, making us forgiving the grey skies of London. If you haven’t discovered then yet, you can have your last chance on their current European tour until December.

Quand le pop devient rock’n’roll! When pop goes off the roll!

Qui aurait cru qu’une chanson connue du monde de la pop commerciale serait mise à l’envers? Ceci donne un excellent résultat! Un beau désordre rock’n’rollesque de la part de Royal Blood sur le titre ”Happy” de Pharrell Williams

Who would have believe that a pop song would be better on the rock’n’roll side? Royal Blood offered a solid messy rock performance on Pharrell William’s happy on the Live Lounge..We love it!

Pulp: A film about life, death and supermarkets

De leurs débuts à leur grands succès, Pulp a su rallier les coeurs dans leur ville chérie de Sheffield.

Le documentaire Pulp: A Film about life Death and Supermarkets, signé Florian  Habicht (Love Story, White Cloud) décrit l’esprit rassembleur et intelligent du monde de ce groupe établi de la grande époque de la Britpop.

Le groupe nous emmène en 90 minutes vers leur dernière prestation en 2012 dans leur ville natale. Nous les voyons en tant que ”common people”, se promenant dans les rues de Sheffield, aux abords du canal, remplaçant une roue de voiture ou entraînant leurs enfants au ”foot”.

Le tout est ,bien entendu, entremêlé de témoignages pour le moins surprenants venant de la communauté, tous âges confondus, de cette région du nord de l’Angleterre. Conférenciers, fans de partout sur la planète (on y voit d’ailleurs une fille des États-Unis qui a fait le voyage) et même Richard Hawley, est de la partie.

Pulp est un groupe qui a rassemblé les générations, des jeunes adolescents aux jeunes adultes qui ont vécu la belle époque des années 90 en passant par les personnes un peu plus âgées. Pulp: A Film About Life Death And Supermarkets y va de scène plus ou moins inusités avec des retraités qui chantent Help The Aged dans un resto-minute ou bien de jeunes enfants d’à peu près 10 à 13 ans qui ont créé une chorégraphie sur Disco 2000.

Bref, Pulp: A Film About Life Death And Supermarkets, est à voir absolument pour les fans de britpop ou bien pour les novices en faisant découvrir la frénésie qu’a créé la pop intelligente signée Jarvis Cocker.

A voir au Rencontres Internationales du documentaire de Montréal!
