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

Audio Jane “Atmosphere”

To open the great lost 90’s movie soundtrack would be Audio Jane’s “Atmosphere”, with the singer’s hushed smokey vocals and the cinematic quality of the band’s performance. You could definitely hear it being played during that poignant pivotal scene when

True Moon “Sugar”

The quickest way to the heart is through the rib cage, and True Moon’s “Sugar” punches straight through with a driving hook-ridden post-punk that would surely have been a dance hit at The Batcave circa 1983.

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

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

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

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

Backbiter – Fvck the Bozos

Criminally short, Fvck the Bozos is a aggressive onslaught constantly verging on art punk. Out on Dirtnap Records. Fvck the Bozos by Backbiter

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

Outer Spaces “I Saw You”

Apparently in a visual mood today, here is the first single off of Outer Spaces off their debut LP A Shedding Snake, “I Saw You” might be the most subdued track that I’ve ever featured on Pop Occulture, but the

Dilly Dally “Snakehead”

Great video for Dilly Dally‘s “Snakehead” off their debut album Sore, hope to get a full review of the album out to you, my one lucky reader, as soon as possible.

Sissy “Gave Birth to a Mum”

Dublin’s Sissy make some of the toughest feminist punk this side of the Riotgrrl movement of the 90’s. With high production values, yet a keen ear fast pounding punk rock. I can’t recommend this band enough! Gave Birth To A

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

Witching Waves “The Threat”

New video from Happy Happy Birthday to Me’s Wtiching Waves. The video itself is a macabre nightmare, full of references to classic silent horror movies. The band comes off as a bouncy crunchy post-punk outfit with hooky 70’s death rock

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

The Daddyo’s “Cat Piss Queen”

Recently found The Daddyo’s on Bandcamp, about half way through their discography, and not a bad song to be found! Here is a video for Cat Piss Queen. Their new EP “Better” is now on their Bandcamp for download. Better

Lemon Drop Gang “I’m Not The One”

Lemon Drop Gang’s “I’m Not The One” was released last month on Bandcamp, but somehow I’ve criminally over looked it until now. This Arizona 4 piece are the epitome of why I started this blog in the first place. Catchy

Exit Dust “Demo” & “Demo II”

There must be something in the water down in Florida that’s been churning out some of my favorite bands for the past half dozen years or so. Exit Dust’s first two demos are no exception—featuring alternately fierce and spectral female

Doe

One band who’s been getting under my skin the last few months has been Britain’s Doe. A British punk band that tears through their songs with a steady chug and a great vocal interplay between the singer/guitarist Nicola and Drummer

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

Troller “Graphic”

I told myself with I started this blog that I was going to focus on the genres I set for myself… and then Troller decided to release a new record. The first single off of the Austin based trio’s sophomore

Nostromo

Fast becoming one of our favorite bands. Watch, Nostromo, a heavy Des Moines 3 piece, who are also (presumably) named after the spaceship in the original Alien movie, rock a Des Moines restaurant back in 2014!
