Field Trip to the Moon “Half Married”

London’s Field Trip to the Moon has swagger and attitude in abidance. Half Married is an attack on a nameless adulterer that pulls no punches. The guitar and bass sound straight out the more surf inspired early west coast punk,

Horace Bones “Stranger Danger”

While the song sometimes narrowly misses the Rob Zombie territory vocally throughout the chorus, it is an interesting sound that brings a new texture in their traditionally horror punk vibe. Australia’s Horace Bones are a tight unit that drive the

Think Tank “Krautrock”

Brooklyn’s Think Tank departs from it’s more experimental sound with this pretty straight forward rocker “Krautrock” an oddly catchy track straight out of an “Experimental Jet Set” vibe. The song quickly finds it’s groove and it’s snotty 77 punk attitude

Starcrawler “Ants”

There is something undeniable about this 1:45 song about Ants. Starcrawler’s Arrow de Wilde comes across as the love child of Alice Cooper, Freddy Mercury and Mick Ronson, while the band bashes out some of the most unrepentant 70’s pop

Despite winning the 2017 pun band name competition (as chosen by me), London’s Loco Ono’s new single “Black Hole” finds them mining 90’s alt-pop and cranking it up to 11 and adding a breakneck drum beat. The song has a

Bravery Cat “Fractal”

Toronto natives Bravery Cat’s “Fractal” sounds like the meticulous cross-breeding of Post-Punk and Power Pop. It’s a stone-faced rocker with a ghostly presence you’re not going to be able to ignore. Their new EP Apocalypse Meow is streaming on their

Maadwest “Dirt Lyfe”

“Dirt Lyfe” of of MAadwest’s 2016 debut “I Can’t Believe We’re All Idiots”, is a buzzy infectious poppy (but not pop) punk song from these Cleveland natives. Definitely that needs further inspection.

Hunx and His Punx “Baby of the Band”

If I have to explain to you why a new (old, unreleased) Hunx song is the best news I’ve heard in a long time, you’re on the wrong page.

Lucy Gucy “Dead End Doll”

Lucy Gucy is timeless in the best sense of the word. There isn’t a point in the song where you can tell if it was recorded in the 50’s or yesterday, with a unstated yet solid hook “Dead End Doll”

Traitrs “Hand of Holy Fingers”

First track off of Traitrs’ “Speak in Tounges” Ep out on Pleasence Records. This is the type of gothic post punk that makes the 16 year old inside of me dance by himself in the corner. It’s we well produced
