Taking their name from a William Faulkner reference, the sound of Strangled Darlings is sometimes compared to David Byrne and Tom Waits performing as a folk duo. New album Boom Stomp King is a record of groove driven, swamp tinged tunes about love, rage, and small things. Harmonies and instrumental melodies with solid body cello and mandolin… Read More MM Shorts 765: Strangled Darlings
Pureland is the title of Silverbird’s debut album and is released on September 18th 2015. Check out a couple of tracks from it below. Lyfe and Seventeen are two more fine examples of their Americana infused, hooky indie-rock and bode well for the full record. You can see our previous Silverbird post here. . .
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. .
It has been a while since we have heard anything new from cinematic, Americana tinged indie rockers New Desert Blues. Now though we have Summer Skin, a guitar ballad with a slightly menacing undertone that builds to a pleasingly impressive pinnacle. It precedes a debut album that we should have more details on soon. Have a… Read More New Desert Blues – Summer Skin
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
We’re loving Côte d’Azur, a new track from Quiet Hollers, and the first we’ve heard from them since we posted the brilliant Road Song back in the beginning of 2013. It comes from their upcoming self-titled sophomore album which runs the proverbial gamut of the band’s eclectic influences: 90s college rock, post punk and alt-country, to… Read More New Album From Quiet Hollers
Life In Hell is the latest track from the Woolen Men’s forthcoming long player Temporary Monument. It is propulsive, jerky punk rock that soundtracks a tale of urban gentrification and the smothering advance of the newly rich. It somehow manages to pack being tense, fatalistic and compelling into two short, clattering minutes. Listen here. .
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
It has been a good while since we’ve posted anything by good time Canadian psych-rockers The Sheepdogs. It feels good to put that right with Same Old Feeling, a bluesy track that recalls the golden heyday of The Band. It is taken from their forthcoming album Future Nostalgia that will see the light of day… Read More The Sheepdogs – Same Old Feeling
