Fat White Family: I Am Mark E Smith

First off ‘Fat White Family’ is one of the coolest band names I’ve herd recently.

The track will be released via 10″ single on October 27 and will be backed by new B-side ‘I Am Joseph Stalin‘.

Jay Reatard: Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle

If you were in a band when you were younger the first song you probably covered was Nirvana Smells Like Teen Spirit, it was probably shitty but was fun either way. Covering a Nirvana song is easy, covering a Nirvana song well is really fucking hard. Jay Reatard covering Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle is one of those rare, amazing times that you can stomach a Nirvana cover.

Mr. Oizo: Stunt

At the tale end of last year Quentin Dupieux released a movie called ‘Wrong Cops’ that had actors like Eric Wareheim from Tim & Eric, Marilyn Manson and Stevie from Eastbound & Down. It’s like Pulp Fiction but weirder, funnier and with an awesome electro soundtrack also done by Quentin aka Mr. Oizo who you might know from this video. This is off the soundtrack and is referred to as a bad song throughout the movie but is actually really rad.

the-faint-doom-abuse

The Faint: Evil Voices

The Faint are back. It’s always good when a band that’s been around for awhile comes back with awesome new music. This new track is grungy rock but still holds true to their electronic sound. They’re on tour now and are insane live.

Jack White: Lazaretto

Jack White pulled off the fastest released record with this track for Record Store Day. He did a live-in-studio performance and released the record to the crowd three hours and 21 minutes later. The track starts off like a groovy White Strips song but at the tail end it gets a little wild with some electronics and what sounds like a gypsy violin solo.

The Skull Defekts: The Known Unknown

Put this song from Skull Defekts on loop, with a riff like that you don’t want it to end. They’re from Sweden (which is why they’re so dark and cool) but recently have acquired Daniel Higgs from baltimore’s Lungfish.

Pontiak-INNOCENCE

Pontiak: Innocence

I want to drink whiskey in a biker bar in slow motion every time I hear this song. Pontiak is a band of three brothers from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. If the movie Easy Rider was updated this would be part of the sound track.

Greys-If-Anything-608x608

Greys: Guy Picciotto

Greys have been hailed as the new Fugazi (newgazi) but as much as I can see the comparison they’re their own breed of madness. Definitely a band to keep your eye on.

130709-fuzz-cover

Fuzz: Loose Sutres

Ty Segall has done it again with his band Fuzz. At first listen you might lump Fuzz into a category with surfer rock-ish / Tame Impala sounding bands but keep listening. This track takes a fucking amazing dive into Black Sabbath / Led Zeppelin league fuck-your-sister RocknRoll. Then they seem to break the song as much as possible only to lead up to an explosive finish. This is probably amazing live.

La-Dispute-Stay-Happy-There-608x608

La Dispute: Stay Happy There

La Dispute is back with a great new record. There is nothing like having a band you’re really into not trying to reinvent themselves but rather continue and expand on the awesomeness that made you like the band in the first place. High fives La Dispute for staying true. (listen for the references and progression of the ‘coffee on the stove’ in the lyrics)

Girl Band: Lawman

Girl Band, who are actually dudes from Ireland, has to be our new favorite band. With a sound that can be described as experimental-punk-grunge, these guys are paving the way for what good music will be in the future. Their songs are a mad man with complete control, organized chaos, insanity on rails. Be sure to check out their previous record France 98 and order the limited edition 7” of this track on their band camp.

Mendon Kissling makes really catchy music his way. His songs are sincere and because he records with tape they have a warm realness to them that will give any Daniel Johnston fan the ups. Check out his latest EP, Necrotic Mutox, on bandcamp along with other past tracks that are just as good.
