An awesome new ruckus let loose by some Philadelphia group, equal parts garage punk and noise rock and carrying the spirit of so much classic shit on the intersection of old school (post-) punk and (proto-) noise rock. At one point you might recall Brainiac, but mostly it's 80's stuff like U-Men, X (AUS), Flipper, Feedtime, No Trend… even a hint of early Minutemen shines through on the closing track. Of the more recent scene, i'm thinking of acts like Cutie or Patti.Album-Stream →
Yup, accurate title for the third cassette by Minneapolis punk project Dummy aka Sean Alberts of Skull Cult, QQQL and Belly Jelly fame. Another metric ton of smart, quirky and at times surprisingly elaborate Garage-, Synth- and Egg-related weirdness that never fails to make me smile is being crammed into a rather convenient form factor here.Album-Stream →
Here's yet another short and sweet tape carrying one of those delicious oldschool hardcore/KBD-style/Garage Punk hybrids, so simple and elegant and flawless in its execution. I never get tired of this kind of shit.
This Sydney/London based duo hits every nail on the head straightaway on their first EP with an honest urgency to their straightforward lyrics and a sound not entirely dissimilar to recent british DIY phenomena like Silicone Values or Suburban Homes, although Nasty Party supplement their obvious Television Personalities vibes with quite a bit of Buzzcocks drive. I'm also vaguely reminded of Proto Idiot and Freak Genes.
