Die Heuwels Fantasties launches 2021

Afrikaans Alternative Rock band, Die Heuwels Fantasties just announced the official launch party of their new 15 track album dubbed “2021” on May the 30th. They have very creatively used current circumstances to their advantage and will amplify the launch with an online streaming concert!

It’s not what we are used to, cause lets be honest a real gig, is the real deal, but as far as the stream in concerned, it is seriously stacked with appearances by Francois van Coke, Arno Carstens, Tarryn Lamb and Jack Parow.

“We’re very excited to launch an album with a full-on live, online show for the first time. We’ll be sending our album to you over the ether of the internet with VISUALS, LIGHTING, the full band and it will come to you 100% LIVE in the comfort of your home.” – pierre greeff

What’s amazing, is the fact that your ticket in fact includes “2021” as a full digital album. Die Heuwels Fantasties also released a Lyric video for the single “Naweek” off the album as teaser for this weekend.

We think this is going to be a fun weekend.

Jeremy Loops releases Mortal Man

New Music Friday took on a whole new persona. A day full of surprises and Jeremy Loops definitely added to the excitement. He released “Mortal Man” under his new licensing deal with Universal Music Group South Africa, as part of a unique global partnership with Decca Records in the United Kingdom and Polydor in Germany.

The new track was accompanied by a beautifully crafted lyric animation.

” What a journey here. From our little rough lakeside sketch of this song when it was just a work in progress to naming a whole tour after it months before it’s come out”

 

The release of Mortal Man was only part of the bomb Loops dropped on Friday. With it came the public announcement that Loops have secretly been working on 2 tracks with Ed Shereen, in his studio on his estate in Essex. It is reported that the two hit it off after one of Ed Shreen’s stadium shows in South Africa and the rest is history.

Mortal Man is available on all streaming platforms.

Let’s talk about Foo Fighters’ Sonic Highway album!

What does a do-no-wrong media darling, who’s been on top of the pop-rock pile for 20 years, do when the ideas stop coming? If you’re Dave Grohl, you record Sonic Highways, Foo Fighters’ ultimately flawed 8th studio album. The record has seen mega-hype as the accompaniment to an eponymous documentary series on HBO (now midway through its run) of Grohl and co.’s travels to eight cities with legendary music production credentials, during which they both interview legendary locals and draw inspiration for their latest album.
