  • Chitlin' Fooks "Not Enough Tears"
    Pascal Deweze (of Metal Molly) and Carol Van Dijk (of the dutch Bettie Serveert) gathered up some friends to play mellow country songs, and do so splendidly on the debut album "Chitlin' Fooks".
  • DJ Krush "Danger of Love"
    Dj Krush is a Japanese mixwizard with international acclaim, but the reason this track is featuring in this list of new Belgian songs is the fact that the vocals for this Massive Attack-like track and single from his album "Zen" is done by Marie Daulne (Zap Mama)

    Well over 25 years Machiavel is Wallonia's prime rock band, and they're celebrating this again with a double compilation album called "Anthology", and a brand new single.
