Washington, DC based group Congo Sanchez, has drawn their line in the sand with today's release of their first full length album titled 'Dealin' With This'. This album is anything but your average radio loop, as it takes you through turmoil, protest, love, and life on the road. Spanning from funky dance breaks to dark hip-hop beats, and back to lounge based sambas, this album takes you on a ride. 'Dealin' With This' is available today on Herb Records, buy it here.: http://herbrecords.bandcamp.com/

Every time we get to talk music with our own Alexis Rivera, the bands of San Juan rock jefe AJ Davila come up. The musician’s new project, AJ Davila y Terror Amor, is what we’re talking about this time. Listen to the foot stomping Latin punk courtesy of Burger Records here. Puerto Rico lo hace major!
After thirty years, 19 records, and a million shows, The Melvins remain royalty in heavy music. This fall they reign again with ‘Hold It In’, and it’s another gem in King Buzzo’s crown. All hail the rulers! Listen to ‘Sesame Street Meat’ courtesy of Ipecec.
Guadalajara, Mexico’s garage goddess, Teri Gender Bender, is back and full of woman power. Her project, Le Butcherettes, known for their wild and controversial live shows, grows musically on this second release; ‘Cry Is For The Flies'.

Vermont’s favorite laid back psych rocker, King Tuff, cruises back down from outer space with his latest, ‘Black Moon Spell’. Here’s the cool single, “Danger in the Dark" off of the new Sub Pop release. Pretty cosmic man...
The Oxford, Mississippi two piece, Bass Drum of Death, is back with their third noisy release. ‘Rip This’ features the trademark snarled vocals, fuzzy guitar riffs, and bombastic drums that make these guys so much fun.

Our favorite Nashville garage rockers, Jeff The Brotherhood, are back with another release. This time its an awesome EP in the form of a covers record.
