Topsy-Turvy Records Releases
THE MOONRITE – Let Me Be Your God LP
A: B: The Black Mirror The Witch Is Back The Soul Transfer House Of Glass Let Me Be Your God The Black Mass (Part 1) The Initiation Ceremony The Black Mass (Part 2)
Heavily attracted by the mix of genres “gothic/pop/psychedelic”, the two brothers from Grenoble, France (including Yann Cracker from TOWERBROWN and THE GENTLEMEN’S AGREEMENTS) play dark
and groovy music, that sounds like a gloomy hippie trip interpreted with an original organ/drum line up. After their fantastic debut album, the duo further developed their sound and now serves us their
second LP “Let Me Be Your God”. Their sound has become even darker and, just like the artwork its covered in, more occult while adding synthesizer and slightly descending musically from the 60s towards the 70s and 80s. This development makes it belong a bit better to the new SOUNDFLAT RECORDS-daughter-label TOPSY-TURVY-RECORDS that is open to a broader musical field than your 60s-Garage/Beat-label SOUNDFLAT RECORDS.
While hit-songs like the title-song “Let Me Be Your God” or “The Witch Is Back” (which was previously released on 7” by TOWERBEATS RECORDS) sound a lot like the debut-album, it is especially non-vocal-songs like “The Soul Transfer” or “The Initiation Ceremony” that remind one of dark spaced-out movie-soundtracks from the mid- to late-seventies. The brothers included one fantastic cover version of “House of Glass” (originally by THE GLASS FAMILY ELECTRIC BAND) among otherwise self-composed, very powerful, dark and captivating songs.
MOONRITE have an absolutely unique sound that is so powerful, that you will find yourself wondering how on earth it can be just the two of them creating such a rich and fantastic sound! Make sure to listen to this fantastic, almost epic album that displays outstanding songwriting and music!
THE BONESHAKERS – Shake Baby Shake 7″
A: B: Shake Baby Shake These Boots Are Made For Walking
With the record-launch of THE BONESHAKERS‘ very first 7” “Shake Baby Shake”, the brand-new division of SOUNDFLAT RECORDS, „TOPSY TURVY RECORDS” is born! The record label aims to focus on great Rockabilly, Punk, Alternative and independent music, so THE BONESHAKERS, combining
acoustic Rockabilly with Rock’n’Roll classics, oldschool R&B and their own fresh interpretation, represent an ideal first release!
The acoustic-trio with an unmistakable, powerful voice of frontwoman and stand up drummer Boney Shaker, guitarist Schorni Walker (The Sewer Rats/Kannentime Records) and double bassist Puck Lensing (Frantic Flinstones, The Offenders) started off two years ago when they quickly made the streets, bars and clubs in Germany dance, shake and sing along to their fantastic live-shows. Now they present to you two fabulous songs on vinyl.
Recorded live, the BONESHAKERS celebrate their openness and love for Rock’n’Roll with a driving acoustic Rockabilly-sound. The A-side-song „Shake Baby Shake“, has by now established itself as the band’s very own theme-song, after countless wild live-shows made a cheering crowd sing and dance along! The B-side displays the trio’s very own version of NANCY SINATRA’s hit „These Boots Are Made For Walking“, interpreted in an acoustic-Rockabilly-way with “tough girl”-vocals.
“Shake Baby Shake“ is much more than a slogan – as soon as you put this 45 on the decks, party-time is guaranteed!
