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

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

The Black Angels “Currency”

Being a blog that is based 99% off of submissions*, there are few that were bigger no-brainers than featuring The Black Angels, who quite frankly over the last decade or so have become the yardstick in which most neo-psych bands

Nowns – S/T

Debut tape from garage-pop duo Nowns. This self-titled release finds the band treading familiar guitars, drum machine, guitars and reverb formula that’s pretty typical these but with a bit more interesting twists and turns than your average “west-coast” garage band.

New York garage rockers Top Nachos, released a Pay-What-You-Want EP on Bandcamp. Criminally short at just around 15 minutes, these songs blaze through so quick you don’t even know what hit you. EP by TOP nachos

Audacity “Dirty Boy”

I first heard this song a week or so ago when the Soundcloud player had been going for a while. Not that I don’t think that anything Ty Segall is even marginally involved with won’t get the attention that it

Iggy Pop “Post Pop Depression”

The man, the myth, the legend… The man who needs no introduction, why the hell I’m introducing him is beyond me. I’ve got my tickets for his spring tour, do you? Iggy Pop!

Vahnevants “Bum Out”

Straight from the mean streets of Des Moines, IA. The Vahnevants are a group of warblely sounding miscreants with a “Back From the Grave” vibe. They were actually the first band I started writing about on this blog. One missed
