Nowns – S/T

Debut tape from garage-pop duo Nowns. This self-titled release finds the band treading familiar guitars, drum machine, guitars and reverb formula that’s pretty typical these but with a bit more interesting twists and turns than your average “west-coast” garage band.

Giant Kitty – This Stupid Stuff

RiotGrrl seems to be making quite the comeback as of late, and Giant Kitty embodies everything that I like about the genre, including what a lot of the modern purveyors seem lacking in, having a sense of humor. Their latest

Dead Waves “4 to 5”

Dead Waves is a dark post-punk rock band from NYC, with their debut single off their new album Living Inside “4 to 5”. The song itself finds the band in a ethereal noisy nightmare world, that would fit perfectly in

Super FM – Fuck Barnacle

NYC’s Super FM is a power trio that blasts through their new cassette Fuck Barnacle in a distorted haze that pummels your senses. Why are you still reading this? You should be listening to this, rather than read me wax

Turpai “Bottom Lip”

Dreamy, yet muscular and stiff in their playing London’s dreamily anthemic duo Turpai straddles a unique space between Garage Rock’s punkiness and Dream-Pop’s ethereal landscapes. Their latest offering “Bottom Lip” is buzzy, upbeat and lost in the haze.

So Many Mammals “A Downward Angle”

Ever leave the room when Soundcloud was playing and come back and it’s actually an amazing song? Well, that’s what happened to me. The Swedish So Many Mammals shared this song “A Downward Angle” just over a year ago via

The Scamps – Porcelain 110

Cool new LP by Springfield, MO garage rockers The Scamps. With soulful yet growly vocals and great flourishes of organ, The Scamps stomp and buzz their way through the album at breakneck speed. Standout track “Let’s Get Rid of New

The Sellwoods

After much anticipation, I finally got a couple 7″ in the mail the other day from the Portland, OR quartet The Sellwoods, who we previously mentioned in the Hidden Volume 7&7 split. These two singles, 2013’s “Extended Play” and 2014’s

London based self-proclaimed ‘feminist punk witches from hell’, Dream Nails just self-released their first single through Bandcamp entitled “DIY”. However those lucky enough to live in England and have a chance to see them live will have an opportunity to

The Electric West “Death Birds”

The Electric West “Death Birds” is one of the most interesting tracks I’ve heard from the recent reemergence of dark psychedelia. With pounding drums, buzzing, but never shrill guitar this song is about as dark and heavy as you get.

whenyoung “See How They Run”

Debut single from London-based whenyoung is a great little fuzz pop tune that has just enough sonic exploration and drive to take what could have been a standard pop rock song and made it into something unique and interesting. Definitely

The Orange Kyte “Which Vivian”

Vancouver’s The Orange Kyte, make the kind of sunny damaged psychedelia that you just don’t hear enough of these days. Fuzzy guitars, and soaring harmonies. It’s songs like this that I close my eyes and pretend I’m not in Iowa

The Ghost Ease “Gemini Rise”

Not exactly known for their harder garage material K Records, put out a new album by The Ghost Ease last September, an interesting combination of heavy garage rock riffing enclosed in gothic trappings. Their video for “Gemini Rise” is an

Summer Cannibals “Full Of It”

Sumer Cannibals is a power trio from Portland, and this song makes me think of several years I spent with my ear glued to the local college radio station. It brings back all the best stuff from the late 90’s

Eureka California – Versus

Athens, GA’s sunny/fuzzy power duo, Eureka California, just released their new album on HHBTM Records. The entire album buzzes through it’s running time with a manic glee that few other bands would be able to get away with let alone make

Peach Kelli Pop “Halloween Mask”

Great new track from Peach Kelli Pop from her upcoming 7″ release on Lauren Records. Infectiously sweet and an all around good song.

Acapulco Lips “Awkward Waltz”

“Awkward Waltz” is a crazy wild color surf go-go, with blown out shimmery vocals. The entire song has the aural equivalent of sitting at a 60’s tiki bar, right after someone put something your drink, but before you wake up
