Darkwing – Necropants

Posted: October 8, 2018 in Alternative, Garage, Indie, Music, Rock

Brooklyn rockers Darkwing will shortly release their new EP Super Silver.

The first single Necropants is a needling slab of distorted garage-punk that is well worth a spin.

Despite hailing from down under, the debut self-titled album from Adelaide based six-piece The Dunes is mined from the same sonic territory that hosts the Black Angels, Warlocks and Wooden Shjips, thick with reverb, fuzz and deliciously dark undertones.

Listen to the excellent space rock of (Just Because You’re Not Being Followed Doesn’t Mean You’re Not) Paranoid, and the pummelling, hypnotic Mountain.

You can order the album from Bandcamp here.




Colorado fuzz-rockers The Velveteers create raw and aggressive grunge with blues-rock roots, and will be arriving in the UK this month for a tour spanning the entire country. In celebration they’ve released their brand new video for EP highlight Anastasia Sings, a horror-fuelled theatrical nightmare-scape that serves as a perfect visual accompaniment to their psychedelic leanings.

Watch / stream it below and check out the live dates. Buy their self titled EP here.

Australian outfit Tropical Fuck Storm, featuring a couple of members from The Drones have shared the video for The Future of History, taken from their upcoming Joyful Noise Recordings’ debut, A Laughing Death in Meatspace.

Mixing art-rock, deconstructed punk skronk, and a kitchen sink full of ideas, wit and acerbic observation, the album is a great listen. Watch the Gary Kasparov inspired video below and also check out the equally good Soft Power too.

Buy the album from Bandcamp here.




Here is our latest collection of musical films for you. A regular pot pourri of musical styles from Girl Skin’s gorgeously fragile chamber folk to Sit Down’s oozing amalgam of doom metal and sludgy punk by way of The Cavemen’s amphetamine-fueled rhythms and scorching guitar, coupled with drunk and disorderly vocal tirades, and First Aid Kit’s ever perfect vocal harmonies.

There is Steve Mason’s soulful new single, brash snot-rock from TV COMA and the pummelling psych rock of the Oh Sees and Black Delta Movement and more hypnotic stoner wooze from The Holydrug Couple.










Fancy some raw, lo-fi, blues-punk and garage rock ratcheted up way past eleven on the dial? Thought so…

You Gonna Burn is the latest visceral, sleaze-ridden heavy-duty offering from London’s Suicide Generation – featuring guitars that could fell trees.

Have a listen.


New Single From Flat Worms

Posted: September 6, 2018 in Alternative, Garage, Music, Punk, Rock

Flat Worms are back. And just like that a shit day just got transformed.

The new 7″ single from the LA based threesome is titled The Apparition / Melt The Arms. The B side can be streamed below – it is furious, buzzing, magnificent, garage-punk that will put hairs on your chest and then melt them off again – all in just over two minutes.

Just glorious. Listen, then click through and order it.


With an album cover like that, and a name like Rude Dude and the Creek Freaks, one would be entitled to expect some high octane, garage-psych of the highest order.

Thankfully, this first release from the Savannah record shop, Graveface Records & Curiosities, delivers on all counts.

Top banana as we like to say. Stream the marvellously named Dan Halen here, and preorder the vinyl or digital download from Bandcamp here.
