We love Protomartyr! Their new record The Agent Intellect is due on 9th October via Hardly Art and they’ve shared the brilliant Dope Cloud, a new song from the full-length. The almost-anthem deals in a currency of lost ownership and the futility of creature comforts, as Joe Casey’s lyrics paint mental images of a “saltmine racist gang”… Read More Protomartyr – Dope Cloud
Although they have been around a little while, Spray Paint are pretty new to us and their pulsating brand of hypnotic, full-on punk rock has been one of our favourite discoveries. Having already released one album this year, now they are readying another one, Dopers, for release in October. It was recorded last August in the middle… Read More New From Spray Paint
More delicious, demented, fuzzed out freakery has come our way via Love Buzzard. Download/stream the psyched-out garage punk of latest track Wild below. It comes from debut album Antifistamines. .

Barely a year old, and yet Table Scraps have already developed a sizeable reputation for their fuzz and tape-echo drenched punk noise, built over a stand-up drum set and a single guitar fed through four amps. Latest single is the excellent Motorocycle, taken from their recent debut album More Time For Strangers. Give it a spin. .
The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing have long been renowned for their mix of anarchy and anachrony and marinating it in gin-soaked steampunk, with emphasis on the punk. Think a socially conscious punk band channelling the sound of a robot Sid Vicious, hopped up on Crass, covering Slayer in an 1877 East End Music… Read More MM Shorts 762: The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing
NY’s punky power-pop duo Diet Cig have shared the second song from their double A-side Sleep Talk/Dinner Date 7″. Dinner Date is (maybe) our favourite song of theirs to date – one that continues them along their path of unflinchingly highlighting failures and disenchantments (their own and others). The song is plaintive yet spiky, building to… Read More Diet Cig – Dinner Date
The Legendary Shack Shakers incendiary interpretations of the blues, punk, rock and country are all-at-once irreverent, revisionist, dangerous, and fun. Built upon a haunting, Southern Gothic theme, new album The Southern Surreal is a 15-track set featuring guest appearances by actor/musician and long-time fan, Billy Bob Thornton, and Jesus Lizard guitarist, Duane Denison. Stream Cold… Read More New Album From The Legendary Shack Shakers
