Early on it’s clear the level of experience and passion that Erik brings to the scene, and this album proves to be more than worth its weight right now.
Fast-paced and loaded with equal parts organic and distorted sound design, Jeshua Marshall injects a heavy hit of rhythm and anthem-like energy into the scene with this infectious and striking new single No More.
Five Wheel Drive offer every bit of organic funk and rock that their Americana-soaked name seems to imply, and Try Me is a notably unpredictable, eclectic EP of some of their finest songs to date.
Brilliant songwriting – it’s a pleasure to listen to such a hard-hitting contemporary band with so much vulnerability and realness at the heart of their work.
Throwing fans another unexpected curveball, LA’s Love Ghost offer up a personal ode to a country they adore, by covering this renowned Japanese ballad Uewo muite aruko (English title : Sukiyaki).
Maryland trio Homebase inject a much-needed hit of punk pop and rock into the music world with this refreshing EP of originals.
Energetically blending the nostalgia of nineties punk-pop with that of the Happy Gilmore glory days, Queensland’s Kid Fly kick into gear with a brilliantly well-crafted new single.
Long-time rockers Dead Freddie return with a bang to kick 2020 into shape and remind listeners that creative, intentional and immersive rock is still alive and thriving.
A band with precisely the tools and passion required to satisfy that need for energy and volume during these extensively still, unsettling times.
This feels like a slept-on classic from a simpler time, and still the concept focuses on something that much of modern music refuses to even attempt.
From lyrical weirdness through uninhibited musical expression, Can’t Wait consistently keeps listeners engaged, often on their toes. Contrast is utilised brilliantly, droning moments of quiet desperation are juxtaposed by sudden passionate outbursts and increasing tempos.
Striking hard & fast with a mighty hit of nostalgia, Tower Crane Towers pour through with the authentic pace & grit of bands like Bad Religion & Good Riddance. This feels genuinely like a forgotten legend from the peak of nineties punk-rock.
