Ditches “The Taste” 7″

These guys could have chosen the easy way and play HELLACOPTERS influenced rock'n'roll since they are from Sweden, but they sound more like American powerpop on speed. "The Taste", "Tired Eyes" are less than two minutes, and they cover The Go-Go's "We Don't Get Along" in their own way and at their own speed! DITCHES... Continue Reading →

Baby Scream “Things U Can Say To A Stranger” EP

Argentina's BABY SCREAM is back with a 5 song EP with strong 60s influences mixed to 90s alternative rock.

RunHideFight “He’s A Jerk” 7″

Philadelphia rock'n'roll gang RUNHIDEFIGHT offers us two songs in which classic garage rock'n'roll meets wild protopunk. You'll hear some guitar riffs influenced by The KINKS, some slight surf rock touches and some riot girl lead vocals in "He's A Jerk." "Because I Love You" has more psych to it, think 60s garage with Indian (Bollywood... Continue Reading →
