Ash – “Buzzkill”

By Will Oliver, February 26th 2018

Longstanding Irish rockers Ash will return with their seventh studio album Islands which will be released on May 18 via Infectious Music.

The song chugs along with the expected power-pop that you’d expect from the band and that you wish Weezer would still make. It’s a charming single that seems perfectly suited for listening on a nice summer day.

Find a stream of “Buzzkill” below and pre-order the new album over on iTunes

Warbly Jets – “Between The Lines”

By Will Oliver, February 26th 2018

Los Angeles’ Warbly Jets kept busy in 2017, releasing their self-titled debut album and opening up for Liam Gallagher’s North American tour, including Terminal 5.

The band is back with new single “Between The Lines,” a new single that they released on the new Amazon Original playlist Love Me Not that was released ahead of Valentine’s Day. The track continues their trend of capturing some early 2000s Brit Rock with a lively confidence that works in their favor.

Enjoy a stream of “Between The Lines” below.

Death By Unga Bunga – “Soldier”

By Will Oliver, February 21st 2018

Norweigan rockers Death By Unga Bunga return this Spring with their fifth album, So Far So Good So Cool. It will be released on April 6 via Jansen Records but you don’t have to wait to hear it’s first single, “Soldier.”

The track dives deep into 70s rock and roll with plenty of crunchy goodness that is totally infectious and feels readymade for a night out on the town. Someone needs to make a tour happen with both them and White Reaper, like yesterday.

Stream “Soldier” below and you can preorder the album right now on their Bandcamp.

High Tropics – “You Never Made It Easy”

By Will Oliver, January 26th 2018

Australian rockers High Tropics have returned with new track “You Never Made It Easy,” which may fill the current void in any Strokes fans heart. The track calls to mind some of the early days of the band with vocals that definitely have some Julian Casablancas in them.

This is the second song that we’ve shared from these guys, with the first being “15 Years” which we posted last October. They are new to the scene but are definitely an exciting young group to keep an eye on in the new year.

“You Never Made It Easy” just premiered on Rolling Stone Australia and you can find a stream of it posted below.

Dryspell – “You Without Me”

By Will Oliver, January 15th 2018 — with 1 comment

Dryspell is a rock group out of Austin, Texas, formed by Hunter Thompson (who also plays guitar with White Reaper). The band is set to release their brand new EP More on March 1 via Highland Park, a new singles label from Roll Call Records.

They’ve released the EP’s first single, the blaring rocker “You Without Me” which definitely fits in with the garage rock put out by recent groups such as Twin Peaks and even a bit of Thompson’s work with White Reaper. On top of some devilish guitar licks, there are some pop-hooks under all the fuzz that bring it all home in rocking fashion.

Find a stream of “You Without Me” available to hear below and if you dig it, go ahead and find the track available to snag at their Bandcamp page.

Prettymess – “Tripping”

By Will Oliver, January 14th 2018

Australian natives Prettymess turn back the clock a bit and deliver a rocker that sounds like it could’ve come from the 90s.

In fact, it was actually released by the band back in 2005 on their album Greyscale Broadcast. It seems that this little gem got lost in the shuffle, but it recently came across my inbox and it’s too good not to share.

Enjoy a listen to “Tripping” below.

Stonefield – “Delusion”

By Will Oliver, January 13th 2018

Stonefield is a band consisting of four sisters from Australia, who make some rather killer psych-rock with some proggy elements that probably helped them become one of the latest signings to Flightless Records (home of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard).

Their first release under Flightless is their delicious 70’s psych-rock offering “Delusion” even finding some breakdowns that remind of classic acts such as Black Sabbath and come off in quite epic fashion.

This is some good stuff. Enjoy a stream of “Delusion” below and if you like what you hear, you can find the single available to buy on iTunes.

Yonaka – “Bubblegum”

By Will Oliver, December 28th 2017

Back in October, we shared with you the firey track “Wouldn’t Wanna Be Ya” from up-and-coming British rockers Yonaka.

Today we are here to share another winning track from the band’s debut EP Heavy. It’s the EP’s opening song, “Bubblegum,” a confident rocker that almost sounds like if Sanigold was fronting a buzzy rock band. It’s got a big-time energy to it that just feels natural and full of life, something that it seems just comes naturally to this young Brighton band.

Take a listen to “Bubblegum” below, where you can also find it’s lively music video. The whole EP is available to buy now from iTunes.

“Westward – “The Empire Of Deception”

By Will Oliver, December 28th 2017

Westward are a high energy power trio from Salt Like City comprised of members Andrew Marshall, Karl Grimm and Matt Morrison. They’re the self-described style of “Cowboy Space Rock” lives up to the promise on single and title track of their new album The Empire Of Deception,” finding a rather huge and bombastic style that straddles the line of say Muse and Queens. The band goes all on their sound and have a confident approach that allows this over-the-top style to actually work.

Take a listen to the big sound of “The Empire Of Deception” below and find the rest of the album available to stream on bandcamp.

Black Pistol Fire – “Lost Cause”

By Will Oliver, December 27th 2017

Black Pistol Fire is a true powerhouse live band, one who I can’t recommend enough if they’re coming to a venue near you. Unfortunately, I haven’t gotten to check them out on their most recent tour, which is a disappointment considering how great that new material such as “Lost Cause” must sound live.

The song is off of the duo’s new album Deadbeat Graffiti, which they released via Rifle Bird Records back in September. This is a fired up bluesy garage rock jam that is giving The Black Keys a good run for their money for sure. I can only imagine how charged up the live version of this track is. Hopefully, I can correct that soon enough.

For now, enjoy a stream of “Lost Cause” below.
