Pavid Vermin “The Beach Boys Never Surfed” 7″

PAVID VERMIN is a pop punk from Rhode Island. They start this 7" telling us "The Beach Boys Never Surfed" with good melodies and all the best ingredients you can find in that style. Their sound isn't too polished, which is a good thing in that style! "Give It A Rest" is faster, bringing bands... Continue Reading →

Dear Hearts “Old Shirts” EP

DEAR HEARTS from Belgium started playing together in 2009 and have released a few records but I'm only hearing about them now with these 4 new songs.

The Ratcliffs “Hell Mental”

The RATCLIFFS (from Austria) probably have all the RAMONES album. That's what you think when listening to opening song "Sidewalk Weirdo", "She Walked O.U.T", "One Step Forward" or "Just Because", but they must also be influenced by bands like The QUEERS and The ADOLESCENTS. Nothing wrong with this, right? But you'll hear more than that... Continue Reading →
