The Brothers Steve “#1”

If you were into 00s powerpop/glam, then you probably remember Los Angeles band TSAR. If you don't, then rush and grab their albums! 3 members of TSAR play in The BROTHERS STEVE, but the music of the band is more influenced by TEENAGE FANCLUB, GUIDED BY VOICES or The KINKS. The 60s powerpop influences perfectly... Continue Reading →

The Laissez Fairs “Marigold”

Las Vegas Psych mods The LAISSEZ FAIRS are back with this 16 song album (double album?) on Rum Bar Records. Opening song "Long Grow The Marigolds" brings you back to 60s psychedelism before "Phantom Stranger" will make you space dance! "My Thursday" Girl" has a bit of an early BOWIE vibe, "Mister Wryly" and "We'll... Continue Reading →

The Jackets “Queen Of The Pill”

I've seen The JACKETS live a couple of times and they are quite an entertaining band with lots of energy, ALICE COOPER eye make-up, freaky fuzz and 60s garage influenced beats. Despite these obvious qualities, I never had the opportunity to listen to a full record of this Swiss/American band. Here they are back with... Continue Reading →

'Still I Am" gives this album a quite brilliant opening, bringing a vibe somewhere between The CRAMPS and JOHN SPENCER, while second song "Sheltered" is a... Continue Reading →

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 →

Sloks “Holy Motor”

"One Up" and "Rat" open this album in a very no wave way full of noise and repetitive beats, but the Italian power trio has its roots in primitive garage as you can hear in "Holy Motor." SLOKS tell us that "Jazz Is Dead" in a psychedelic chaotic celebration of noise, but also admit they... Continue Reading →

King Brothers “Wasteland”

Japan's KING BROTHERS have their own vision of garage rock'n'roll in which classic STONES guitar riffs and harp meet modern deconstructed drum beats. Known for their energetic live shows, the power trio managed to re-create this wild and furious atmosphere in songs like "No Want", "The Machine", or "Bang Blues" in order to give birth...
