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

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

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

The Coathangers “Make it Right”

Every year or so The Coathangers add to their already prestigious catalog, each time just a little bit more polished and ingrained in the sound that’s uniquely their own. Their latest single “Make It Right” is a tight little garage
