Magic !, Parcels, Single Mothers, The Faim, Wayste – Weekly Review Week 36 2018!
New week, new music releases. And as always, our editorial team has a broad musical taste. We listened to you in the new records and singles of these artists:
MAGIC! – Expectations
Most likely MAGIC! Thanks to her hit “Rude” from 2014, which comes from her debut album “Do not Kill the Magic”, it went up and down on all radio stations and persisted in the charts. Since then, the Canadians have released yet another album and countless singles, but such a hit as “Rude” has remained since then. Now her third album “Expectations” is released, venturing on to a more modern and electronic sound, but remaining true to her own style with a mix of pop, reggae, indie and RnB. (Emilia)
Parcels – Lightenup and Album Announcement
Finally! After their successful singles like “Overnight” and “Tieduprightnow”, the Parcels announced on Thursday their long-awaited debut album. It appears on October 12th and is called simply “Parcels”. To celebrate the day was also a new song including video released. Like its predecessors, “Lightenup” is characterized by the funky disco sound of the Berliners and sounds as if you want to take the last summer days with you into autumn. We are looking forward to the album and dream until then with the new single to Australian beaches. (Andrea)
Single Mothers – Through A Wall
There was a big surprise this week from the Americans of Single Mothers. The post-hardcore band just released their third studio album – without announcement – on which the project around frontman Drew Thomson presented a well cobbled-together mix of punk, hardcore and rock for almost 30 minutes. The recordings of the fourteen new songs sound raw and straightforward, as is the case with a real punk record, but without keeping in mind that even a decent pack of melody can be fun. The pieces usually fall out relatively short, go up a good pace and let fly in front of the inner eye already flying bodies and stretched fists. The group never forgets that Hardcore can work with rhythms, clock shifts and tempo changes, so that “Through A Wall”, although with a wild euphoria literally pokes its head through the wall, but always with a progressive note for variety provides.

The Faim – Summer Is a Curse
With their single “Summer Is a Curse” The Faim are already On everyone’s lips, now finally the appropriate debut EP of the Australians, which also bears the name “Summer Is a Curse”. With six catchy indie pop / rock songs, they deliver the perfect late summer soundtrack and show why the hype surrounding the four guys, who are already traded as the next “5 Seconds of Summer”, is more than justified. We’re sure to hear a lot from this band! (Emilia)
Wayste – The Flesh And Blood
There’s a decent pack of noise from the people of Leipzig Wayste. The play on their debut album – in September 2016 was already a first EP appeared – dark and straight hardcore. The trio develops its sound in exactly the same direction as “No Innocence”, as the entertaining debut is called. For twelve songs and thirty-seven minutes, Wayste unpacks the hard-hitting hardcore club, which comes along very fast (“I And You”), sometimes takes some rest (“Elder”). The majority of the songs are full on the face though. That’s why the ever-increasing “Elder” offers a welcome change on this very homogenous record. The following pieces are a bit more forward, but in comparison to the first half of the album they offer a bit more space for clean vocals and almost post-rock outbreaks (“Losing Touch”) and rock riffs (“The Great Disguise”) so that the band manages to create a fresh breeze in the back, although straight hardcore is not always synonymous with diversity.
