Parisian quintet En Attendant Ana are back with their sophomore release Julliet. It’s jam-packed with all kinds of bouncy indie pop that’s sure to cure any winter blues. Check out “Do You Understand” below for an example.
Kiwi Jr.’s debut LP Football Money is a nice trip down the 90’s indie rock memory lane, think Pavement meets Possum Dixon. Give the jangly “Salary Man” a spin for a taste. Football Money is packed with enough pop to keep you bouncing for days. I think it’s cured the sinus infection I’ve been battling for the past three weeks. Thanks, Kiwi Jr.
Vancouver four-piece, Necking, break necks and smash faces with their 9 chunky blasts of punk rock goodness (à la 90’s Sleater-Kinney) that make up their latest album Cut Your Teeth. Check out the ferocious “Big Mouth” and “Go Getter” below to get yourself hooked.
Cut Your Teeth is available now via Mint Records. This sucker shreds. I highly recommend it.
Rezin Tooth is the secret dub project of Seattle’s Nathan Spicer along with most of his fellow bandmates from Polyrhythmics. Their self-titled debut is the “never meant to be released” album that somehow Wax Thématique is magically releasing at the beginning of 2020.
We are honored to premiere their debut single “Dub Crater” (below). It’s a laid-back, dub-filled jam flavored with hints of the funk and groove goodness Polyrhythmics are known for.
Rezin Tooth lands on January 10 and is one hell of a way to kick off the new decade. Enjoy.
New Orleans’ Trampoline Team beat your eardrums to a pulp on their sophomore, self-titled LP. Their razor-sharp guitar licks, pummeling drums and wicked fast, chugging bass lines are on point and in your face from start to finish.
Give the burner “Must Be Nice” (below) a spin for a quick taste – it’s a good one.
Trampoline Team is punk rock gold. It’s out now via HoZac Records and I highly recommend it.
Vision 3D bring their grimy, punk rock A-game on their debut self-titled LP. The album cover alone should tell you this is going to be a winner (it is!). Bassist/vocalist Lulu Sabbath’s powerful vocals shine along side her chugging bass lines and the aural assault caused by Ced’s guitar work and Calamiti’s drumming. Check out the burner “Fan” below for a taste.
I am a big Jack Cooper fan. Mazes, Ultimate Painting and of course, his incredible solo album. I was stoked to hear about Cooper’s new project, Modern Nature, with Will Young (Beak>), Aaron Neveu (Woods) and Jeff Tobias (Sunwatchers).
On their debut album, How To Live, they combine their vast musical abilities to create 10 tracks of jazz-tinged, psychedelic rock that’s packed with layers and full of depth, which is heard throughout the entire album Check out the killer groove of “Footsteps” (below) for an example.
How To Live is available now via Bella Union. I highly recommend it.
Dublin-based duo, Submotile, destroy speakers with their debut album Ghosts Fade on Skylines. Their brand of shoegazey noise-rock pummels your ears (in a good way) and is sure to satisfy any fans of bands like Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine. Check out “Eastern Sky Sundown” below (I suggest cranking it up), it’s amazing that a band of only two can create music this loud.
Ghosts Fade on Skylines is available on CD and digitally via Submotile’s Bandcamp page. It’s a shame this hasn’t been pressed to vinyl. Someone should get on that.
