Speakly Playlist (6/2/11 – 6/8)

“Anybody Seen My Heart?” by The Chelsea Kills

The Chelsea Kills, a Philadelphia four-piece, are another fierce band of brothers joining the fight to unearth the spirit of adrenaline driven ’70s Rock N’ Roll.  However, this isn’t an outfit that’s limited itself to one speed, or sound, or appearance, and it’s forthcoming debut full-length, Sick Boy, is evidence as the group doesn’t hesitate to drop down into first or second gear, conjuring a foggy and fuzzy harmony laden number, straddling the line between Goats Head Soup and The Velvet Underground & Nico on tracks like “Angel.”  But it’s the blood boiling rager that is The Chelsea Kills’ money maker, the sort of track it has a knack for unleashing on a crowd, leaving it battered and broken and begging for more…songs like “Anybody Senn My Heart?”  Check it out below and if you’re in the Philadelphia area tomorrow head out to Perch Pub to see The Chelsea Kills and Howling Hour pay homage to beer in this 10-day long tribute to bread in a can…more information here.

“Whiplash” by PEAL

The Neptune-based Hard-Rock outfit sports a much sludgier style of play than the title of this song, “Whiplash,” suggests.  The track leads off PEAL‘s four-track EP which can be purchased here or at the group’s raucous live show as a split album with S3R1A7 FLXW3R (pronounced Serial Flower…maybe).  Check them out around the area this summer and enjoy this next cut.

“Master Of Art” by Laura Stevenson & The Cans

This next track from Laura Stevenson & The Cans isn’t what one might expect from from a Don Giovanni Records release.  The soothing and thunderous vocals of Stevenson rolling over a mountainous range of tracks and the stripped down, Americana-Rock of The Cans is a far cry from the explosive electricity produced by the likes of other Don Giovanni products such as Screaming Females, Big Eyes, and Black Wine, to name a few.  Sit Resist is Stevenson and the crew’s latest release (it dropped last Tuesday), check out a track below.

“Us” by Joanna Burns

Joanna Burns, a Hazlet native, released her debut full-length, The Green Year, one month ago and it includes this next number, a poppy piece of piano piloted ear candy that leads off the 12-track collection, captivating the listener until the very end.  Grab a download below and pick up the rest of the record here, or, grab a physical copy when Burns plays The Downtown in Red Bank on June 29th. 


“FMWYF” by My Love For Danger

Another flaming wave of Pop-Punk emerges from the scene with My Love For Danger’s self-titled debut EP, a diverse five-song compilation commencing with a two-minute, instrumental, bass-heavy introductory march to lead all the Anarcho-Punks into the pit and culminating with an acoustic, mug swinging sing-along, complete with wartime imagery named “Scotland.”  Sandwiched between the bookends sit three melodious ragers, including this next track.  Download the rest of the record here and check out My Love For Danger at The Saint on Saturday June 25th at Almost There‘s music video premiere show for “I Cried Wolf.”
