Tyler and the Streeters “Ziggy Stardust”

In the rush to pay tribute to the passing of one of the figureheads of western culture. There have been plenty of missteps. This isn’t one of them. This fittingly sparse treatment seems propper for a man who at the

Goth Babe “Wasted Time”

I bought Goth Babe’s first single when it came out in December, but lost track of them when they changed their name. Luckily though, I just found their new EP “Wasted Time”. It’s everything I loved about their first single

Snotty Babies “Snotty Babies”

Snotty Babies self-titled EP out on EXXE has a methodical thud of a back beat that invades even their most uptempo numbers. With dueling vocalists and heavy for the sake of menace guitars,  the album gives an air of imminent

Raw Pony “Demo”

Raw Pony lives up to their name, with a stripped down raucous sound that’s totally infectious and unwieldy. Don’t forget to pick up their 7″ for Bo Diddley on Heel Turn Records before it sells out! Demo Tape by Raw

Chaika “The Quietness”

A little bit trippy, a little bit post-punk. With a unique glitchy take on psychedelia towards the end. Great track from Chaika!

Pryss “I Fear No Man”

Pryss fears no man, but there’s times in their 4 song release on Ooey Gooey Tapes that I personally got a little scared. With some of the heaviest music I’ve enjoyed in a long time and the fierce snarl of

Cum Bats “Home Cave”

The notes on their Bandcamp page says that the album was recorded in a cave, but there’s definitely something subterranean about the dingy lo-fi surf aesthetic of this album. Though unlike a lot of lo-fi productions the muscular drumming never

Sugar Rags “Sugar Rags”

Exquisitely bratty vocals punctuate these strong backbeated well-crafted and hook filled songs. Lyrics full of post-teen angst and arch-naivete. Both the LP and demo are well worth a listen! Sugar Rags by Sugar Rags

Who & The Fucks “POROUS”

The new EP by Tulsa’s Who & The Fucks “Porous” is an incredibly enjoyable vibey garage rock, with hairpin rhythmic turns that never feel forced or arbitrary. Each song sits in a nice little pocket that’s not too bright or

The Everywhere’s “Strange Love & A Nightmare”

So the first band I wrote about on PO’s Twitter was Nova Scotia’s The Everywheres. With their spectral harmonies and Beatles Revolver-esq go-go rhythms of their latest single “Strange Love & A Nightmare” is well worth checking out. With a

Crumbs “Demo”

This British lo-fi band has an interesting combination of somewhat snotty female vocals with the punky funk of early talking heads. These tracks are laid back into an interesting pocket of semi-effortlessness. While still having an internal kenetic energy about
