New Album From Hunx & His Punx

On 23rd July, Hardly Art will release the new full-length by California’s Hunx & His Punx.

Street Punk, as the title implies, is a dramatic departure from the band’s previous outing, 2011’s Too Young to Be in Love, and includes a deep-cut Beastie Boys cover, Egg Raid on Mojo, and brief, blistering anthems like (the possibly self-explanatory) Everyone’s a Pussy (Fuck You Dude). In fact, it is filled with the catchiest and most hateful punk songs heard in eons.

Grab yourself Bad Skin from the album here.

Here we are again. A mix of the best tracks we posted in February and a few new ones too. Twenty seven cracking songs to immerse yourself in!

Download O’Death – Bugs mp3 (from Outside)

Echoes of their ramshackle and punkish best, but this time it is cocooned in something more subtle and thoughtful too.

Download The Whalers – That Rabbit mp3 (from How The Ship Goes Down)

Playing a wonderfully straightforward blend of thudding, bass-heavy rock that makes us think of QotSA melded with the Black Angels and then given some 60s style reverb treatment.

Download Middle Brother – Me Me Me mp3 (from Middle Brother)

Classic rootsy Americana show indie supergroup can live up to the hype.

Download The Barettas – Touche mp3 (from Touche 7″)

An energy filled, rough edged pop number – like bubblegum wrapped around a six inch nail.

Download Creepoid – Grave Blanket mp3 (from Horse Heaven)

Top quality psych-rock and creeping reverb laden malevolence.

Download The Paperhead – Back To Those Days mp3 (from The Paperhead)

Shimmering, orchestrated pop layers, eastern influence and the groovy instrumentals of a classic British Psych record.

Download Hunters – Deadbeat mp3 (from Hunters / Dead Wife split 7″)

The tribal beat and brilliant riff is a perfect combination of the heavy and the accessible. Imagine The Vaselines making music with The Ruts on a chaotic acid binge.

Download Moon Duo – Mazes mp3 (from Mazes)

A must for any fans of psychedelia, drone-rock, stoner riffage or anything similar.

Download Left Lane Cruiser – Giving Tree mp3 (from Junkyard Speed Ball)

An effortless mix of southern-fried blues, garage, and brutal punk riffs into one glorious whiskey and gasoline soaked whole.

Download Trent Fox & The Tenants – Mess Around mp3 (from Mess Around EP)

Garage infused rock n roll with added swagger and a whole bunch of attitude.

Download Wolf Ram Heart – Viewgirls mp3 (from Betrayal of Hearts)

Ominous and brooding – a perfect example of dark hearted, pop psychedelia.

Download Jones Street Station – The Understanding mp3

A wonderful sense of melody and intricate rhythms played with a joyous abandon and sense of fun.

Download The Raveonettes – Forget That You’re Young mp3 (from Raven In The Grave)

Ghostly synths and chillingly beautiful riffs that leave you feeling simultaneously unsettled and enchanted.

Download Slug Guts – Hangin’ In The Pisser mp3 (from Howlin’ Gang)

Seething primal punk-blues holler with a twisted take on everything from goth to garage.

Download Brother Gruesome – Tubes mp3 (from For The Morphine Makes You Comfortable 7″)

Mixing a sound that has evolved from their dark folk roots with a full on Sabbath-esque interlude.

Download J Mascis – Not Enough mp3 (from Several Shades Of Why)

Acoustically tinged pop par excellence.

Download Hunx & His Punx – Lovers Lane mp3 (from Too Young To Be In Love)

Tongue-in-cheek homage to the Shangri-Las, doo-wop, bubblegum pop, beach cruising and prom night teenage angst and finishes with the obligatory spoken word denouement – this time with flamboyantly camp overtones.

Download Bored Man Overboard – Abigail mp3 (from Rogue)

Vibrant, dark and reserved, they tell stories about forgotten people, of resignation and subdued wine buzzes. The music sounds like it has been dragged screaming from being immersed in six months of darkness – a wonderful antidote to the empty pop fluff that abounds.

Download Wavves – Horse Shoes mp3

His finest moment since So Bored…?

Download Fosdyk Well – First Gravity mp3 (from Slumber And Stark Lots)

Off-kilter acoustic strum and a queasy feel combine in this brilliantly disorientating mix of uneasy folk and ambient experiment

Download Silver Shampoo – Streaks Of Satan mp3 (from Higher & Higher)

Top quality fuzzed out, reverbed up, psychotic blast of glamorous garage rock.

Download The Heavenly States – Model Son mp3 (from Oui Camera Oui EP)

A foot-stomper with added rasp, rhythm and groove.

And to finish off we have two excellent covers for you, Loch Lomond’s reverential take on a Fleetwood Mac classic and Bat for Lashes tackling Depeche Mode, as well as the first tastes from new albums by Summer Camp and Julian Lynch, and finally a brand new song from folkies Romany Rye.

Download Loch Lomond – The Chain mp3 (Fleetwood Mac cover)

Download Bat For Lashes – Strangelove mp3 (Depeche Mode cover)

Download Julian Lynch – Terra mp3 (from Terra)

Download Summer Camp – I Want You mp3

Download Romany Rye – I Hate Myself (For Loving You) mp3

Hunx & His Punx plunge their sticky fingers into a 60s inspired lucky dip and come up trumps with Lovers Lane. It is a wonderfully entertaining, tongue-in-cheek homage to the Shangri-Las, doo-wop, bubblegum pop, beach cruising and prom night teenage angst and, of course, it finishes with the obligatory spoken word denouement – this time with flamboyantly camp overtones.

We know we are a little behind the (leaders of the) pack with this one, but having played it constantly over the past few days, we wanted to post it up anyway.

Pre-order their forthcoming album Too Young To Be In Love from Hardly Art here (out 29th March).
