Single of the Week August 26/2013: Risk Risk "Heartbeat"

This week's Single of the Week on koolrockradio.com is "Heartbeat", another great cut by German minimal synth-pop project Risk Risk (aka our good friend Stefan K.).

Heartbeat is actually a lost track that was NOT on Risk Risk great debut album 'This is 1983', but it was intended to, and just as all the tracks from that album,  it's a brilliant 80s synth oriented tune.

Risk Risk's new album is almost finished, and Stefan is currently looking for a new label to release it. We'll keep you posted as more details on the record surface.

Have a listen to the demo version of 'Heartbeat' below.

Watch: Cosmonauts Share Music Video For "What Me Worry"

California indie rock band Cosmonauts have shared the video for "What Me Worry", taken from their just released third studio album, 'Persona Non Grata', out via burger Records.

The song is part of our current playlist www.koolrockradio.com.

Formed in 2009 by Alexander Ahmadi & Derek Cowart, Cosmonauts offer a glimpse of drug-addled Southern Californian rock n roll in the 21st century. Inspired in equal parts by polo-shirts and MDMA, this garage-trance outfit has garnered a reputation of amps dialed to ten and lullaby meltdowns with both audiences and contemporaries, supporting acts such as The Growlers, The Black Angels, Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, The Beach Fossils & more.

Check out the video below.
