TeamRock Radio: The Playlist (13.10.14 - 19.10.14)

TeamRock Radio's Moose and Dewsbury guide us through this week's big hitters on TRR.

Afternoon! With new tracks this week from AC/DC, Pink Floyd and The Who, you could be forgiven for thinking we’ve somehow travelled through a temporal wormhole back to 1979. At last! My homemade loon pants will be fashionable!

Sadly, this is not the case. Damn.

As well as these so-called “heritage” artists, there’s so much good new music around at the moment, that it’s incredibly difficult trying to narrow it down to a single playlist. Honourable mentions this week should go to Bush, Bury Tomorrow, Mallory Knox and The Datsuns, who only missed out due to a lack of available spots.

AC/DC – Play Ball (Columbia)

NEW ADDITION: Despite the much-missed Malcolm Young, this is as classic-sounding as it gets. Full marks to Stevie Young for stepping in for his uncle. (D)

Against Me! – True Trans Soul Rebel (Xtra Mile)

NEW ADDITION: Catchy as hell punk-rock, with a depth of feeling that is sometimes missing from modern music. (D)

Audrey Horne – Out Of The City (Napalm)

I defy you to listen to this track and not be singing like a loon by the second chorus. (D)

Beartooth – The Lines (Red Bull)

These guys have been feeling the love from Sophie K on Breaking Bands for a while, and after listening to this latest track, we figured it was time to move these guys onto daytimes. (D)

Black Stone Cherry – Remember me (Roadrunner)

A great track from the band who - in addition to being nominated for Best Album at the Classic Rock Awards 2014 - are also going to be on one of this year's most highly anticipated tours with Airbourne & Theory Of A Deadman next month. (D)

Gerard Way – Millions (Warner)

NEW ADDITION: The latest track from Hesitant Alien. That sold-out tour’s gonna be good, eh? (D)

Fall Out Boy – Centuries (Virgin EMI Records/DCD2)

Gosh, it’s only the biggest damn rock song in the world right now. Pretty heavy for FOB as well. Me likey.(D)

In This Moment – Sick Like Me (Atlantic)

Typical ITM. Quirky, well-produced, chorus-heavy metal. Great for radio. (D)

Jack White – That Black Bat Licorice (Third Man/XL)

Quirky, catchy and unmistakably Jack White. There’s a lot of love in the TeamRock Radio bunker for this track. (M)

King 810 – War Outside (Roadrunner)

I don’t wish to start rumours, but based on this brutal track from Memoirs Of A Murderer, I think someone may have some anger issues. (M)

Kyng – Electric Halo

Heavy stoner riffage in the fine Sabbath tradition. Can’t wait to see these guys on the Lords Of The Riff 2 tour in November. (M)

Machine Head – Now We Die (Nuclear Blast)

Someone at iTunes is in bother for leaking this early, but whoever it is, we owe them a debt of thanks. Phenomenal new track from the upcoming album. (D)

No Devotion – 10,000 Summers (Collect)

NEW ADDITION: Following on from their first single, Stay, this song has an almost hypnotic vocal line, and stays with you long after it’s finished. Great stuff. (D)

Nothing More – Mr. MTV (Eleven Seven)

NEW ADDITION: We all love big choruses, right? Well this one’s bigger than Simon Cowell’s wallet, with riffs heavier than Meatloaf’s lunch. (D)

Pink Floyd – Louder Than Words (Parlophone)

NEW ADDITION: New Pink Floyd. Can’t wait to hear the full album. ‘Nuff said. (D)

Purson – Danse Macabre (Machine Elf)

After spot-playing this a few weeks ago, it stuck with us, so we decided to give it a shot. Trippy as Hell, but also extremely catchy. (D

Rancid – Honor Is All We Know (Hellcat/Epitaph)

NEW ADDITION: News of Rancid releasing a new album has led to many of us in the TRR bunker joyfully breaking out the leather jackets, studs and Doc Martens again. Oi, and indeed oi. (D)

Sixx:AM – Gotta Get It Right (Eleven Seven)

There’s something about this song that just digs into your brain and won’t leave. Catchy stuff from the new album. (M)

The Who – Be Lucky (Universal )

NEW ADDITION: Confession time: I expected this to be bobbins. Good news! It’s very, very far from it. Classic-sounding Who, with a hook that’ll sink deep into your frontal lobes. Be prepared to wake up in the middle of the night with this in your brain. (D)

In addition, as there’s a lot of great new music around that we still want to play, we’ll be spot-playing the following a couple of times each during the week, possibly with a view to adding these to the main playlist when the space becomes available…

Evil Scarecrow – Crabulon (Deadbox)

After a storming appearance at Bloodstock in August, Galactic Hunt is out now, but what it’s sadly missing is a song about a robot artificially inseminating a cra…. oh wait. Nevermind. (D)

Led Zeppelin – The Rain Song (Atlantic/Swan Song) 

The latest track from the upcoming reissue of Houses Of The Holy. This alternate version lacks the piano of the original, but none of the feel. (D)

Ziltoid T. Omniscient c/o Devin Townsend – Deathray ****(HevyDevy) 

Devin’s trans-dimensional, omniscient alter-ego returns to smash planets, drink coffee and make off-colour gags about poo. Lovely. (D)
