The Hangups “No Expectations” 7″

This is the second EP of this Swedish band. They play pop punk the way it used to sound on Lookout! Records in the early 00s, but this 7" is out on Monster Zero Records (based in Austria.) They don't try to change the world, or even the style, but they do it really well,... Continue Reading →

Wassup Rocker Radio Presents: Sick Sounds V/A

Wassup Rocker Radio/Alex Kish (Ohio) have decided to gather some of their favourite tracks on a free 32 song compilation.  This is a good idea to promote these underground bands as well as the radio!

Radiohearts “Lot To Learn” 7″

Californian punky power pop, mixing the energy of the RAMONES, the snottiness of the BUZZCOCKS, and a good dose of UNDERTONES ("Decisions.")

Sons Of Buddha “Didoudam”

SONS OF BUDDHA have been playing NOFX influenced punk rock for almost 10 years now (they released 2 albums before and a split record with The APERS from The Netherlands.) On this new album, the French band offers us 12 new sunny pop punk songs, including a great cover of M.O.T.O.'s "Dance, Dance, Dance, Dance,... Continue Reading →

Dirty Box Disco “Legends”

This isn't really an attractive album cover. You'd think that in this day and age, rock bands would make an effort to try and sell their records but well, maybe it's an art statement after all, as it sure fits with the band's cartoonesque imagery. Luckily, the band's music appears to be interesting. Some high... Continue Reading →
