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.

Hideous Towns “Don’t Forget”

The A-Side to Melbourne, Australia’s 4-peice Hideous Towns’ new single Don’t Forget / Wake Us finds the band in full post-punk mode, driving through both songs with a steady rumble perfect for dancing by yourself in the corner of a

Witching Waves “Crystal Cafe”

While still maintaining space in their own home studio, Witching Waves sophomore effort Crystal Cafe finds them a little more polished and angular than their previous effort (2015’s Fear of Falling down). As with the former album the band finds

Lady Bits “It’s Always On”

New EP by New York’s Lady Bits. Frantic and edgy with tongue planted firmly in cheek. Lady Bitz are a onslaught of energy and hooks. It's Always On by LADY BITS

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

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

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!
