Bands We're Listening To This Week - V

features Sep 09, 02:24pm

This week, Lakshman Parsumran has assorted a mix of killer names to be included into your playlist. Check it out. Tell us what you think.
Queens Of The Stone Age
Josh Homme and his stoner-rock cohorts have been touring in support of their last album, …Like Clockwork, which came out in 2013 heavily influenced by Homme’s near-death experience from a botched knee operation. 
There have been contradictory statements from members of the band about ranging from they’re going to work on a new album to they’re on a break. We are obviously hoping for a new album. Soon. 
 
Listen to Smooth Sailing below:
 
 
OX7GEN
Drummer Aditya Ashok’s alter ego, OX7GEN showcases his love for Drum & Bass. But he brings a myriad of influences to OX7GEN's sound. 
His latest EP, Recess, dropped earlier this week and spans a wide range of styles, and is “quite literally a recess from his usual style”. It’s available on OKListen.

Blanck Mass
Blanck Mass is British musician Benjamin John Power’s (one half of drone band, Fuck Buttons) solo electronic project. He toured with Icelandic band Sigur Ros in 2013,  and will support John Hopkins on tour this month. He also remixed a Mogwai track, which appeared on their 2014 EP, Music Industry 3. Fitness Industry 1.
He released his second album, Dumb Flesh, earlier this year. 
 
Listen to Lung below:
 
 
Last Remaining Light
Bombay-based alternative supergroup Last Remaining Light consists of Siddharth Basrur, Anurag Shanker, Karun Kannampilly and Adil Kurwa. They came together early last year, playing a handful of gigs regularly. They launched their self-titled debut album last month have been on the 2Stroke Tour in support. The album is available on OKListen.
