Sometimes you just want rock. You don’t want gimmicks. You don’t care for the latest thing rock has been paired up with or some niche genre of rock. No synth-rock, pop-rock, blues-rock, grunge-rock, folk-rock, jazz-rock, glam-rock, post-whatever-rock or neo-whatever-rock for you. What you want is something that despite whatever sub-genre it fits in…it transcends rock. It just IS rock. So, if you want rock, allow me to recommend the latest single “Let It All Out” from Attention Thieves. Crank it up, tap your foot, bang your head, and enjoy the unadulterated rock. That’s right, play this and I dare you not to move your head.

Attention
 

For me, when I think of quintessential Brit Alt-Rock over the last few years bands like Kaiser Chiefs, The Enemy, and Hard-Fi come immediately to my mind as some of my favourites. I have a new band to add to that list. Attention Thieves, from Reading, England, launch their brand new single “Broken Promise” today. And this track delivers everything I love about British alternative rock. It’s post punk, post hardcore, with melodies your gonna find yourself singing along to at the top of your lungs in the privacy of your own car.

Also check out their 2009 four track EP Fear To Lose. The third track off the EP, “From My Reach”, should give you reason enough to get the rest of the album for yourself.

Introducing Romania’s Grimus

In A Glimpse
Started
(will be released in Aug)

When you hear the name Transylvania, often the notion of a dark, yet somehow alluring, place comes to mind. From the stories we’ve all seen and heard, this place in the heart of Romania probably elicits a wider range of emotions than any other place I can think of. Now what if you want to find a band that can play the soundtrack for such a milieu? Look no further than the Romanian band Grimus.

Bogdan Mezofi’s vocal delivery combined with the driving bass and drums from Titus Vădan and Tamás Adorjáni, respectively, instantly invokes a comparison to Muse. But the guitar work from Vali Rauca and Cristian Csapo along with the keyboards from Lehel Kiss make you think Killers. The final recipe is a surprisingly refined sound of their own. Catchy melodies, hooks in the right places, vocal angst, driving beats, yet all slightly brooding.

“In A Glimpse”, from their 2008 release Panikon, and the yet to be released single “Started” (coming in August) probably showcase what I’m talking about best. But I haven’t heard a single track from them that disappointed.
