Time to change the pace of our festive offerings a little…

Several of the newly convened punk supergroup Wartoad are rumoured to be spectacularly well-known rock musicians from the US, but have adopted pseudonyms for this, their first release – a riotous cover of Noddy and co’s Christmas staple, Merry Xmas Everybody. Fusing their love of classic punk and rock bands with sleazy keyboard and suitcases full of anarchy, it’s exactly what all members of the family should be singing along to when the Queen’s speech starts.

 

  1. First Aid Kit – Fireworks
  2. No Age – Drippy
  3. Alela Diane – Émigré’
  4. Calexico – Voices In The Field
  5. Olden Yolk – Takes One To Know One
  6. Craig Finn – Fault Lines  (Mountain Goats cover)
  7. Ty Segall – The Main Pretender

  10. Graham Coxon – Falling

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Australia’s DZ Deathrays have unveiled a surreal video for new single Total Meltdown.

In typical DZ style, the ridiculous video sees the duo turned into animated characters, fresh after a night out on the town, a chaotic series of events that perfectly encapsulates the raucous, thrash-party sound of the single.

Watch it below.

 

  1. Martha – The Winter Fuel Allowance Ineligibility Blues
  2. Sufjan Stevens – The Greatest Gift
  3. W.H. Lung – Want
  4. Jim James – The World Is Falling Down (Abbey Lincoln cover)

  7. White Room – Twisted Celebration
  8. Jane Weaver & Virginia Wing – I Feel It Starts Again

Birmingham trio Table Scraps create black-hearted garage punk which fully embraces the good, the bad and the ugly of rock’n’roll’s twisted lineage and various mutations. They were in our 2015 best of lists and have announced their new album Autonomy and shared a brand new track from it, Sick Of Me.

Of the song, Scott Vincent Abbott of the band has said “‘Sick of Me’ is about when friendships stagnate and minor annoyance gives way to mouldering resentment. Then juxtapose that feeling on top of a jangly sunshine pop backdrop (or as close to that as we ever get!). The echo of our breeze block 5m x 5m (and very un-soundproofed) room also perfectly suited the track’s claustrophobic feel. It’s dedicated to everyone just about keeping a lid on telling that one person how you really feel and cutting them loose.”

The single is out on vinyl and backed with ominous instrumental Mequinenza.

Listen to both below. Order here and check out some live dates.

Gestures – Nervous

We’ve previously shared Kicks and now we’re thoroughly enjoying cranking out this new track from lo-fi garage punks Gestures.

Nervous is also taken from the Stockholm band’s new EP Bad Taste that is due out a week today, and if anything is even better than the previous single.

Enjoy…

 

London band Calva Louise gleefully mix squalling guitars with the sweetest of pop melodies to create quirky, outsider punk rock that has nods to Pere Ubu, Talking Heads and the Sugarcubes.

Listen to their blistering new track Getting Closer below.

 

Australian duo DZ Deathrays have announced their new album, Bloody Lovely, with the release of their newest single Total Meltdown.

The single bulges with their thrash-party attitude, a massive chorus, and is every bit as loud as it is fun.
