krantz shares “60sdelic” soundtrack

krantz shares “60sdelic” soundtrack

Krantz is a group of heathens from all over the US who congregated to Nashville, and teamed up to make a melodious sound. Check out their newest single, “Run Away With Me” off their upcoming EP, The Pennock Tapes.
This is a playlist of what I think would be playing if you turned on pop radio back in the mid-late 60’s, as you’re sitting in Golden Gate Park smoking a doobie. Having not been alive at the time, I obviously can’t say, but it’s a bunch of rad tunes by some of my favorite artists from my favorite era in music as things were starting to get psychedelic. Tune in and turn on man….

Also, check their site www.krantzmusic.com for upcoming dates as they hit the road this spring. Dare ya to not sing along.

Since I am gearing up to release an album called Hangover Music, I decided it was only right to put together a playlist of songs about alcohol by some of my favorite drinkin’ artists (and a few by me!)

Like “Hangover Music,” this multi-genre collection of songs explores all the facets of the relationship between artist and booze: the fun times, the dark times, the messy times and the head-pounding hangovers. Alcohol doesn’t always make for a productive next morning but it sure makes a damn good song!

ascending dawn, “choosing prog-style melodic metal/rock”

Progressive metal/hard rock genre is always considered to be very niche and always about screaming vocals, and I have always believed otherwise. I feel that it should expand to many ears. It has everything! So I came up with this list to show what I consider are the best qualities of this glorious modern sound. Heavy riffs, melodies, complex rhythms, hooks, amazing production….Would love to know how people feel about this genre after listening to some of these bands. all of these bands have influenced our writing in some way.

gus mcarthur, “headbanger christmas”

So remember how the internet used to be the most righteous place? Well, sometimes inboxes get crowded – or worse, your inbox flags your friends as spam. Our friends Gus McArthur created such a badass playlist for us many moons ago, and we’re just now able to see it. So if you could forgive us for our massive mistake for just a moment, you’ll begin to see a pretty amazing theme throughout this “Christmas” playlist. If you’re in, we’re in.

Says the band about the playlist:

When you need energy and excitement from all the sappy Christmas music and just want to head bang the day away. On December 24th, 1988 Ozzy Osbourne and Zakk Wylde hosted a special Christmas edition of the Headbangers’ Ball featuring some of the top artists in rock and heavy Metal. This is our 2017 homage to Ozzy and Zakk, this time its just Honan and Gus, but we tried to be as diverse in selection as they were or MTV made them be by picking the songs. We highly recommend watching the episode, its kind of hilarious.

Fight fire with fire – Metallica
Mein teil – Rammstein
Ijime dame zettai – BABYMETAL
Holy wars – Megadeth
Ghost of war – Slayer
The faded line – Lamb Of God
Psychosocial – Slipknot
Battery – Metallica
