Crystal & Runnin’ Wild’s second album, recorded in MONO, released on Rhythm Bomb Records, is a turning point for this Brussels based band, that takes them off the beaten path, away from the restrictions of traditional Rockabilly. In 13 songs, ”The Midnight Creature” explores all sounds between 60’s Garage and Desperate Rockabilly. Their compositions take you to a universe, colored with dark humor, where B-movie monsters make pin-up girls cry in sheer horror. And there’s no such thing as a happy end. Without restrictions on the delay nor the decibels, their sound is aggressive and electric, their songs fast and effective. (Except for line dancers of course) A creepy touch to primitive Rock’n’Roll, to much delight of the fans of The Cramps, Link Wray and other Sonics.read more

With her first album release in 2013, Lily emerged not only as a singer of extraordinary talent, but also as a singer who hinted of volumes yet to be published. Lily reveals a different personality in each number. To the brightest of melodies she often adds a blue note and to the most simple of lyrics she adds a sophisticated wink. Her choice of numbers is exactly right – ranging from the slow and moody BROKEN HEART to the raging sounds of SAMMY THE RABBIT or DADDY YOU CAN`T COME BACK, all tracks have been written especially for Lily. Lily adds a personal touch, a neat and provocative sense of beat and individualized styling. The result is a recorded collection that´s lastingly pleasurable from beginning to end. We think you´ll find this an album destined to occupy a very special place on your record shelf.read more
