Chicago’s The Safes play sugar-sweet garage pop tunes that are a sure cure for any sour mood. Their new album, Tasty Waves, is 22 minutes of warm, summery-pop bliss – a perfect remedy for the cold, winter-like weather we’ve been having in my neck of the woods.

Garage soul stompers The Missing Souls are a 4-piece band out of Lyon, France. Their debut U.S. single features their snarly, lo-if take on two lost gems from the 60’s — Oscar & The Majestics’ “Got To Have Your Lovin'” and Lindy Blaskey & The Lavells’ “You Ain’t Tuff”. Both tracks rule!
Portland, Oregon’s 4-piece, garage rock stompers, The Reverberations’ debut EP, Lost In Time, is 3 solid tracks of fuzzy, 60’s era, garage-rock-psychedelic goodness. Stream their fuzzy, psych-pop title track below.
Lost In Time is being co-released by Hidden Volume Records and Spain’s KOTJ Records and is available now from both their Bandcamp pages. Go and snag yourself a copy, you won’t be disappointed.
Philadelphia rock ‘n’ soul combo The GTVs just dropped their newest instrumental, organ-driven, rump-shakin’ single, Organ Donor b/w Here’s A Thing on Hidden Volume Records. You can stream it’s goodness below.
I highly recommend getting your hands on the 7 inch as Hidden Volume has raised the bar when it comes to the vinyl/packaging experience. Also included below, for your listening pleasure, is “Sh’Bang!” from their debut LP with Teen Sound Records.
Arizona’s The Noble Krell play an addicting brand of 60’s era, jangly, psychedelic pop that demands being played on repeat. Their new single Never Ever is out now from Hidden Volume Records and available to stream below via their Bandcamp page. Enjoy!
New Jersey trio The Insomniacs’ new 7″ single, Today’s The Way, is a head bobbing, toe tapping, power pop gem. My favorite of the two tracks is the B-side “Mr. Yesterday”, it’s snotty as hell and I can’t get enough of it. Both songs are available to stream below.
You can get the vinyl (recommended)/stream/download from the Hidden Volume Bandcamp page. Enjoy.
