Dropping engine grease from coast to coast and rattling cages at every stop, Low Volts is on tour. The one-man lightning storm is on his way through the mid-west with a full schedule ahead. Catch a show and uplift your soul!
Easily the most talked about release this week comes from Toronto’s own Death From Above 1979. The Canadian dance punk duo returns after a long hiatus with the relentless and pounding first track “Trainwreck 1979”. We checked it out, dug it, and think you will too. 'The Physical World' is out Sept 9th on Last Gang Records.
With summer now here, the jams can get sunnier. A perfect time to roll through this release from Burger Records, 'Love is The Law'. This is the latest album from stoner pop cruisers, The Memories, and can be seen live Wednesday at the Soda Bar. Cruisey!
This last Saturday we walked off the beach and into a dimly lit rock bar. As with many times before, we saw friends, musicians, and regulars. But we hadn’t met LA’s Runson Willis and his outfit, Young Old Man, yet. We have now. The dudes simply took over the room.
Just in time for summer, Austin’s sweaty mess, OBN III’s drops their latest record today, 'Third Time To Harm'. The punk/garage outfit combines southern swing with an 80’s punk guitar charge that cooks up a super-fun swagger. The first single, “No Time For The Blues”, is soaked in Orville Bateman Neeley III's crazy front man charisma. Stream it and steam it here courtesy of TTT Records.
NY garage rock rulers, Parquet Courts, have released a second single off the upcoming 'Sunbathing Animal' LP, and it’s a cruiser. Different from their previous frantic-paced jams, “Instant Disassembly” is a slacker ballad complete with a lazy vocal and a slow, splintered, guitar lead. So sit down and zone out for a while, because this one stretches out at 7 minutes.
