More From NOTS

NOTS - Cosmetic

As we’ve mentioned previously, we loved NOTS aural assault at the Great Escape – a fabulous brew of punk rock, garage, and krautrock, topped with a genuine screw you attitude that has been conspicuously absent from most ‘punk’ bands we’ve come across in latter times.

Their new album Cosmetic is out on the 9th September, and Inherently Low, a song about depression and loss and lack of control, is the latest track to be shared.

Try it. You know you want to…

More From Happy Diving

Happy DiversWe shared a couple of tracks from sludgy West Coast punk rockers Happy Diving last month, and now we have a third for you.

Don’t Be Afraid Of Love might be the best of the lot though. Taken from upcoming long player Electric Soul Unity, it opens with a classic ’70s rock riff a la Thin Lizzy and hurtles through three and a half minutes of scorching rock’n’roll.

Listen below.

 

New From Joanna Gruesome

Joanna Gruesome are releasing their first material since the departure of vocalist Alanna McArdle.

Following a chance meeting in an occult bookshop, the band’s new line up features  Kate Stonestreet (formerly of queer punks Pennycress) on melodic vocals/shouting/screaming and Roxy Brennan (of Two White Cranes and Grubs) on melodic vocals/keyboards.

The single is the fairly self explanatory Pretty Fucking Sick Of It All and is backed by Occult Bookshop

Here’s the A-side.
