New Single from Ghost Wolves

Raw Texas duo The Ghost Wolves consists of husband and wife, drummer/vocalist Jonny and vocalist/guitarist Carley Wolf. Their sound is a fusion of punk, rock ‘n’ roll, garage punk, and blues with an equally ripe appetite for electronic imagination. Like the bastard child of The Cramps and The Ramones, latest (unhinged) release is Let’s Go To Mars backed with Last Man. Stream both here and … Continue reading New Single from Ghost Wolves

Introducing >>> Chupa Cabra

Sometimes you get an email from a band that already pretty much sums up everything we might want to say about a record in a couple of brilliant sentences. Deeside’s Chupa Cabra is a perfect case in point. First, they describe their music as “nauseating, salivating, hypnotizing, no good sucker-punch-piss-yourself polystyrene agitator Blues“. Nice! And they go on to describe their new single Violent Urges … Continue reading Introducing >>> Chupa Cabra

Introducing >>> Whisky Stain

Human Touch is the new single from Nottingham duo Whisky Stain. A lean howl of squalor and heartache, the track adds a soupçon of tenderness to an otherwise raw and visceral punch to the guts – file somewhere near BRMC, Royal Trux and Death From Above 1979. Stream it below, or watch the single’s video – an emotive study of sexuality, violence, stigma and healing. Buy … Continue reading Introducing >>> Whisky Stain

Left Lane Cruiser – The Waltz

Raw blues duo Left Lane Cruiser are back with a new record, Shake and Bake – meaning another tasty helping of their lowdown, sleaze-ridden garage blues. The Waltz is the latest track shared from the record and it is a heavy-duty monolith of fuzzy, fried rock’n’roll, just like the devil intended. Give it a spin here. The album is out on the 31st May via Alive NaturalSound … Continue reading Left Lane Cruiser – The Waltz

Lonesome Shack Shares Album Title Track & New Dream

We’ve already posted a couple of excellent tracks from Lonesome Shack’s new album Desert Dreams and now the band have shared New Dream and a video for the record’s title track. Both are more top notch examples of their raw, bluesy Americana, New Dream is gentler, akin to a pastoral gospel-style backwoods boogie while the title track is built on the back of another insistently … Continue reading Lonesome Shack Shares Album Title Track & New Dream
