    Eruca Sativa is a rock trio from Argentina that I discovered when I stumbled on a fan video of The Warning members performing along with ES. I can certainly see why TW are big fans of this band. The bass player kicks astronomical ass. Pay special attention to her playing. The drummer is no slouch, either.

    Dany on stage performing with Eruca Sativa:

    People are losing their tacos over the new The Warning album cover art. Like The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s album cover art, it dares one to try to figure it out. Speculation is welcome.

    Here is one psychologist’s interpretation:

    Just released, the lyric video for the new song Qué Más Quieres (“What else do you want?”):

    PLUS… Finally, the official audio for the long-awaited Hell You Call A Dream:

    Elizabeth Zharoff at The Charismatic Voice analyzes TW performing Choke live:

    As an aside, I learned why you can tell when you’re talking to an elderly woman on the phone. Female voices tend to drift downward as they age. With men, it’s the opposite.

    Freeze the Fall bears some similarity with The Warning, working in the same general hard rock/soft metal space. They have at least two covers of TW songs and I’m sure the Villarreal sisters know of them and support them. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if one day they open for TW. FtF just released this song today and it ain’t half bad:

    Finally! A high quality viddy of a live performance of Hell You Call A Dream. Clearly, Pau still enjoys playing drums. LOL

    Here is the exact video that converted me because they were already so excellent I started a quest to learn all about them:

    Yeah, he’s good! His viewpoint and expertise are inspiring and enlightening, and a good way to introduce TW to new watchers.

    Coincidentally, my brother told me TW is his new favorite band. I only told him about them a few weeks ago or so. He lives out in the sticks and only gets internet via cellular towers, so I’ll be sending him some songs, and “the best” (IMO) reactions.

    The rumors are true. Band Maid and The Warning will be collaborating. As the viddy suggests, collaborating raises practical questions.

    The same reviewer gives a very astute analysis of the song Animosity, pointing out details I was unaware of. Of course, he has technology I don’t have at hand allowing him to isolate voices, drums, guitar, and bass. I now have even more respect for Pau’s drumming!

    Oh, I like that. I’ve seen online sites that can separate music into tracks, but I haven’t messed with them yet, and I’m sure they’re not this good. But they’re handy when you want to play or sing along with specific tracks.

    I came to post about another lesson on listening. I was impressed by Dany’s high belting in HYCAD, live, but it wasn’t a favorite song of mine. But one of my favorite reactors pointed out what you can hear in the produced version, and I like it a lot more. A rare case of me liking produced TW better than live. I like the extra harmonies, other extra tracks, and hearing most parts more clearly than in the live version.

    He’s good. He’s also a big promoter of Freeze the Fall, a younger trio (ages 15 and 16) that he and I see as possibly following The Warning to the top in a few years. The singer guitarist is good but the bass and drummer (both 15) are next level.

    It never ceases to amaze me how super-talented musicians manage to find each other even in relatively backwater places like Kelowna, B.C.

    As for Hell You Call A Dream, I think it’s intended to reach out to a new audience. It’s clearly designed to stimulate airplay.

    Frankly, they are heading off in a direction, perhaps at the behest of their label’s producer, where they are more heavily processing/distorting both instruments and voices, not all of which can be accurately reproduced live, so their live shows may suffer for that.

    Frankly, I like much of their older material better where you can hear Dany’s voice clearly and purely and where the guitar isn’t fuzzed so extremely that none of the guitar’s native timbre is left (Sick being the most extreme example).

    I make no bones about the fact that my two favorite songs so far are 23 and Martirio, both of which are pretty much the opposite of Sick and HYCAD with natural voices and minimally processed guitar tones. I’ve heard a snippet of the next song they’ll be releasing, and once again the voices seem pretty heavily processed. WTF?

    Pau’s voice is crystal clear and her specialty is emotive material (23, Breathe, Revenant), so I hope they don’t process her voice very much.

    I accidentally ran into their newest release that’s only three hours old. I like it. It’s the 3rd video below. I looked for lyrics and lucked out. (I’m not impressed by the lyrics. Am I missing something?)

    I’ll present the live fancam-quality video first. The audio is unsurprisingly awful (IMO), but you can see the professional video cameras on stage, along with two drones. (Check out Dany’s hair at 1:06… it looks like some of it is statically charged?! Or is it stiff hair spray?)

    Second one is the lyric video, with the studio recording. I don’t know if this link will keep working. It’s labeled as an official video, but was not available on The Warning website as of the time I watched it.

    Finally, officially on The Warning site, live (and studio mix?) audio, overlayed with the recorded live and edited video. I like the production:

    Here is a band that I think will be a big success.
