WolfWolf “The Cryptid Zoo”

WOLFWOLF ia a garage blues duo that sounds a bit like a Bavarian party from hell! You can hear some trashy guitars in their music and the atmosphere in these songs seems to be an illustration of these guy’s own universe in which you can find joyful things like blind butchers, grave diggers and hunters…

Midnight Crisis “Heart Beatings”

Drummer Marty E. (The DIRTY PEARLS) turns into a frontman in this NYC based band. Opener “Take Control” has a cool vibe (although I was afraid it would start with a U2 cover after listening to the drum intro!), somewhere in between early GUNS N’ ROSES, BANG TANGO and The CULT. You sometimes get to…

Gypsy Roller “S/T”

Opening song “Rock’n’Roll Stroller” sets the mood right from the start: 70s glam rock à la Gary Glitter!

Bowie‘s shadow also wanders around these songs, especially in “Goodbye To Sorrows.” The atmosphere sometimes gets close to the best…

Toward Space “The Bomb That Fell”

Opening song “The Bomb That Fell” put you straight into the band’s world made of crazy garage rock’n’roll and spooky atmospheres, something you don’t hear much these days when you think about it. “Black Cat” sounds more 90s grungy/noisy rock while “Night Sorrows” is straight punky power pop with a MISFITS/RAMONES touch. The mix of…
