Pokey LaFarge – Fuck me up

I want something to… fuck me up
Need somebody to… fuck me up
Everyone feels like it… fuck me up

If you haven’t heard of this guy before, you may actually be surprised what kind of music he’s playing. The lyrics and the video thumbnail are misleading.

Systemabsturz – Verdächtig

Systemabsturz (System Crash) from Germany is probably the first privacy and data protection activist electro punk band. Their song Verdächtig (Suspicious) is about how everyone is under surveilance by social media, the tech companies, and the state and every little thing you do or not do or how you behave or not behave could be verdächtig.

The song has been released under a Creative Commons licence. You can download it for free here or on bandcamp.

The Night Flight Orchestra

The Night Flight Orchestra is another Swedish rock band that sounds like straight from the 80s. I guess you can call it an all-star band as it features some well known musicians, foremost Björn Strid (Soilwork) and Sharlee D’Angelo (Arch Enemy, Spiritual Beggars). The music has an authentic vibe and some great hooks and vocal lines. Here are three videos for songs from their latest album Aeromantic.
