Vahnevants “Criminals”

Any time these “Back from the Grave” inspired rockers release anything it’s a time to celebrate. Their third full length release in just as many years, “Criminals” find the band refining their wobbly and raucous music into a singular vision

If you were to look up ernest unassuming indie rock in the dictionary*, it would just send you to watch the video for moonweather’s “Burn Me”, a catchy extremely animated (both literally for the video and figuratively for the music)

The Stranger “7in”

St. Louis, Missouri is fast becoming one of my favorite scenes. Especially all the music that has been circling around The Sinkhole venue. The Stranger is a thrashy/trashy punk band that comes straight down the middle with some really solid

Slingshot Dakota “Grudge”

The two-piece Slingshot Dakota make extremely catchy, caustic and oddly wonderfully crunchy songs. With just piano and drums they have figured out a way to be heavy and melodic without falling in the typical two-piece pitfalls. These songs are available

The Fuzzy Crystals “The King Is Dead”

There has been a seriously good run of psych releases lately, and one that I find to be incredibly true to the pre-Woodstock sound is “The King Is Dead” by The Fuzzy Crystals, a sweeping landscape full of Zeppelin-sized epic
