Graveyard Johnnys fuse the primal bump’n’grind of classic 50s rockabilly with the fury of late 70s punk rock and new album Dead Transmission continues their raucous, sonic adventures. Piss and vinegar in places, affectionate in others, but rocking and stomping throughout, this is rock’n’roll at it’s visceral best with some rousing tunes chucked into the mix of… Read More Graveyard Johnnys – Dead Tranmission
The Sex Rays deal in sweaty, adrenalin fuelled garage rock. New single She Thing is a tight, sci-fi radio rock ‘n’ roll anthem channeling the band’s lusty garage rock roots, and then driving said roots through the roof.

We’re throughly enjoying this EP from NYC’s Falling Birds, whose fuzzed up garage rock recalls the The Black Lips, but with a dash of Bright Eyes’ folky storytelling sensibilities and a smattering of classic rock’n’roll thrown in for good measure.

To date rock’n’rolling NY three-piece STRNGRS have released two EPs of originals, a couple covers, and a video of a stripped down live performance from CMJ.
