‘Chuckles and Mr. Squeezy‘ is the bizarrely titled fifth studio album from California based alternative rockers Dredg. With a turn around of little under two years since the band’s last offering, ‘Chuckles and Mr. Squeezy’ sees the shortest time span between studio album releases since the group’s inception in 1993.
Dredg cite the reason for this shorter than normal writing period as wanting to create as interesting music as possible without necessarily juggling with time consuming, sophisticated song structures. In essence, this album is simply meant to be a bit more…fun. And fun it is, with obvious comparisons in terms of instant accessibility to what is arguably the most accessible record in the Dredg back catalogue, ‘Catch Without Arms‘.
Coldplay will announce their comeback on Friday (June 3rd), when new track ‘Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall‘ is released digitally worldwide, with its UK release following at midnight a day later.
Muse bass player Chris Wolstenholme has revealed he is to take up the main songwriting duties for the band while frontman Matt Bellamy takes a break from music to spend time with partner Kate Hudson, who is expecting the couple’s first child in July.
It could be said that Steven Gene Wold is a guy who has risen from the very bottom of the barrel, right the way to the top of a musician’s game – by anybody’s standard. But what a search engine, or perhaps some article dubbed as from the streets to the charts might define as the ‘bottom’, is really just a colourful and at times surreal background.
