Bambies “Summer Soon”

BAMBIES are a trio hailing from Montreal, Quebec in Canada. They are a trilingual, tri-national (Canada,France, Costa Rica) band influenced by 70s punk and powerpop. “Dirty Taint” takes us into the heart of the action with lots of youthful energy and a garage punk production. Songs like “Summer Soon” or “Stuck With You” stand somewhere the RAMONES and the EXPLODING HEARTS, and “Echo” and “Party” have a bit of NEW YORK DOLLS and BRIEFS thrown into them. The ’77 punk/powerpop influence can especially be heard in “Teen Engine” and in “Go Gore Boy” although a song like “Human Sake” has a big garage vibe. “Running Through The Night” is a well-crafted punk rock song and “RNR With You” offers us some crazy speed freak rock’n’roll moments. The vocals get a bit more melodic in the last song, “Moonies” and then you realize it’s already over. 12 songs you’ll love if you’re into 77 punk with a powerpop approach. /Laurent C.

Jonesy “Record Store Day (Is For Losers)” Video Premiere

Montreal-based rock’n’rollers Jonesy are releasing a new video for their anti-Record Store Day song, to be featured on their upcoming album. Here’s their statement:

“ We only have despise for that ludicrous hypocritical farce that is record store day. Very few record stores don’t play that sell out game, and most of them survived the 90’s and early 00’s because of people who don’t even shop on that day. We wouldn’t care if it wasn’t for the consequences of the thing: big delays for music that actually matters in pressing plants (nope, your expensive U2 repress doesn’t matter), and ridiculous prices on both records and press orders. Not to mention all the idiots who are after pricey collectables instead of music. In other words, Record Store Day is for losers.”

The song is from the forthcoming Jonesy 2nd LP, to be released later this year on Dead Beat Records.
