Ramonda Hammer “Too Much, Too Recently”

Probably the most consistently great bands to grace Pop Occulture, Ramonda Hammer’s “Too Much, Too Recently” is just as emotionally raw and amazingly blistering as their last single “Bender”. “Too Much…” has about as much drama and emotional gravity as

Smoke Mountain “Demon”

While metal isn’t entirely outside of the scope of Pop Occulture, I believe that Smoke Mountain might be the heaviest thing that we’ve ever featured on the page. Their song “Demon” should be featured in every mid-70’s to late 80’s

Ramonda Hammer “Bender”

Ramonda Hammer is back once again with their own brand of hi-fi emotionally raw 90’s alt-pop. “Bender” was written while binge watching Shameless, and the grit might have rubbed off as this is one of the most angsty songs I’ve

Winter “Jaded”

In recent years Burger Records has had a great undercurrent of great bands that evoke that great 90’s flavored woman-centric pop punk, and Winter’s “Jaded” is another shining example. The song finds Samira Winter writing solid pop hooks, with just

SLOWKISS “Pink Death”

On the lighter side, here is SLOWKISS’ new single “Pink Death” with breathy 90’s harmonies, the band reminds me of a few of the super obscure bands from the 90’s LA scene that were criminally overlooked, but let’s not let

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

Loco Ono “Black Hole”

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

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.
