XRP RADIO TOP 10

 

 

↑1: Mack AAO – Atlanta, GA – Urban

Slick as the last oilspill to close down the M25, some top quality production and seriously sweet lyrics with this top class urban artist from georgia.

 

2Cengiztheband – London, UK – Punk?

Thrashy, punky and in your face. All we know is he REALLY doesn’t like Christina. Poor Girl!

 

↑3FreakFood – Medway, UK – Pop Punk

If freakfood don’t get you bouncing and happy, nobody will. The perfect party music or anthem to your summer parties to remember for years to come. 

 

↓4Tacit Fury – Stalingrad, RUS – Death Metal

Previously holding the no.1 Place on XRP for around 6 weeks, a seriously heavy band for those who like their ears ripped strait off.

 

5: Philtrum – Medway, UK – ‘Some kinda Punk’

Not your average punk band, with some strong riffs and catchy choruses, its not just headbangging punk, its punk with soul 

 

 

↑6714 – Memphis, TN – Rock ‘n’ Roll

The rockiest of rolls, great guitar licks and solid beats drive the hard rocking band strait into yer eardrums with that toe-tappin beat that gets you through that drive time drag! a perfect for the morning playlist.

 

7tenek – Sussex, UK – Electronica

Tenek make music beautiful, pure beats, liquid lines and smooth and beautiful vocals to overlay it all. This music is purely exquisite.

 

8: The Lost Will Follow – Mount Ephraim, NJ – Indie

A good ol fav of the XRPRadio over the past month and their first (and well overdue) appearance in the top 10 charts. Quality produced and catchy indie rock from this really great band.

 

9: Tavú – San Juan, Puerto Rico – Metal

As dubbed tonight by the chatbox ‘Spanish Slipknot’ – does what it says on the tin in the most extreme way, the tin is left rusted, dented and completely unuseable. Listen in a big open space and swing your arms around a lot and you will be a happy little fella 

 

10: Luis Drayton – New Forest, UK – Glam/Punk

 

The new Glamorpus EP Release from Luis Drayton is not to be missed, fantastic punk orientated Glam Rock is a fantasticly produced, catchy and well written peice of wonderfullness.

Rees Pick!

Good evening everyone!

Every week i am going to submit a Rees Pick band as part of Ree-Views! Bands reviewed here have been picked as they have done something specifically amazing in the week!

Here is a little taste of what XRP Radio have to offer!

With over 6,000 artists on our rota, it can be quite hard to specifically pick out a token band that to be honest, deserve a bit more recognition! But i shall endeavour to showcase a slice of what awesomeness XRP Radio have collected over the years, there will be old favourites, and new bangers for you to get your ears around!

so here we go!

Now, this weeks band is NO surprise, being notorious for being my favourite band, imma be a little biased, ok?

WYLDLING.

https://www.facebook.com/WYLDLINGmusic

An electronic rock act from Derry/Londonderry, NI fronted by live wire Jilly St John. Energetic and enigmatic performances this act promise/deliver BAGS of attitude, HUGE riffs, DIRTY beats, & more hooks than you can shake a stick at!

Recently playing Glasgowbury festival Wylding currently have an awesome amount of media specifically on their facebook page that you should really check out from the show! As usual there are the usual photos of front woman Jilly looking phenomonal with some really artsy shots from the awesome ‘Bigbad Llama’.

I personally really respect Wyldling as a band, as i have followed them for the last 12 months or so, I have witnessed how much hard work and drive has gone into the band, making them especially deserving of winning the Sunset Island Music Award for best female this year!

Below are their next 3 dates, and also a link to listen to their music, i suggest you listen to ‘Friend’ i promise that you wont be disappointed!

This months Band of the Month and also Chatboxing winner on XRP Radio!

This Months Band of the Month is a band that:

  • Stayed at number 2 in the XRPRadio Top 10 for 6 weeks
  • Are the most recent chatboxing winner (21/7/13)
  • And who describe themselves as ‘a pop-rock-blues quartet that´s slowly becoming a circus blues act.’

Its….Rolin Humes!

Rolin Humes is a pop / rock / blues quartet that is slowly becoming a circus blues act .
Comprised of four individuals , influenced by many different cultures , societies and music genres , Rolin Humes soon became much more than just a childish dream .
The band , in it’s present form , came together during a blues session , when for the first time ,
four young musicians , felt the power of immediate musical and personal understanding .
We kept sharing and spreading that essence on our live shows and finally got it
materialized on our first record that is entitled

“Rolin Humes welcomes you to the Penultimate Supper 6/8” .So, welcome .
