Way back in the summer of 2015 we posted a couple of tracks of riff-heavy garage rock by The Legal Immigrants, and now three years later we have a new single for you that once again mainlines a shot of adrenaline straight to the system.

Like the bastard son of the Eagles of Death Metal and Johnny Cash, Hang On is a freight train rolling off the tracks with howling vocals, smoking amplifiers, and chugging guitar chords from calloused fingers. It unleashes a burst of energy with a call to iron-willed perseverance.

Give it a blast below.

We posted a track by The Legal Immigrants in our recent Monday round-up, and now we have another from them for your listening pleasure.

Infusing the dirty garage band sounds of the 70s with a lo-fi analog recording, the Michigan four-piece have concocted a mean love song with their riff-heavy single Bily Goat (and that’s not a mis-spelling)!

Listen / download it here.

Good day! We’ve been continuing our trawl back through the in-box for all the gems and hidden treasures that await us, and all to share with you this fine summer’s morning. Another eight tracks, some older than others, all worth some of your attention, give it to me now…

The Ethical Debating Society have just released debut album New Sense on London’s excellent Odd Box Records. Across 14 songs of visceral self-termed ‘riot-pop‘ the record delivers wry observations of relationships and sardonic notes on modern culture alongside dissections of contemporary politics, both intense and catchy. Order here and check out Future Imperfect below.

Caity Krone is a singer-songwriter from LA who has just released her first single Archipelago, a lovely slice of folk-pop that promises great things. Download it here.

Ancient Warfare’s single Gunsmoke is a dark, moody, even macabre cut from their debut album The Pale Horse coming out on Alias Records on 11th August. For fans of Lower Dens and Warpaint.

Leaves Leaves have just released Deboning Swedish Fish, an album of slacker inspired rock, shot through with an enjoyable resignation and world-weariness. Check out the slinky Crying At The Chop House and order on a pay-what-you-want deal from Bandcamp here.

Beach Moon/Peach Moon is the songwriting vehicle and stream-of-consciousness cathartic outlet of San Francisco based musician, Robert Prisco. Originally conceived to be layers of rambling, inarticulate psychobabble about philosophy and the sea, strewn over lo-fi folk guitar and audio loops, Beach Moon/Peach Moon has since expanded to a full band set up. Taking influence from the likes of American Analog Set, Sparklehorse and The Microphones; intricate guitar lines interweave with off-centre drums, setting the backdrop for Prisco’s hushed vocal. Have a listen to Philosophy at 23 at 24.

Alt-punk outfit Magnificent Birds of Prey have a loose, authentic energy that recalls early post-punk bands like Talking Heads and TelevisionCan’t Wash My Soul is a sub-two minute blast from forthcoming album Kaleidoscope.

.

Rockin’ roots and country band Union Specific have just released new album Howlin’ Room. Have a listen to the infectiously jaunty title track that has more than a touch of longstanding MM faves Elliott Brood about it.

Grand Rapids, Michigan garage rockers, The Legal Immigrants draw inspiration from Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath with some hints of The White Stripes, with a music and philosophy centering around a central Detroit ethos: raw, gritty, and honest. This is Fork In The Road from new album Drugs For Roses.
