First off ‘Fat White Family’ is one of the coolest band names I’ve herd recently. Second this song is meant to be a soundtrack to something – what exactly, I’m not sure of yet – but I know it’s at night and the camera is slowly pulling back from a character that is slowly draging on a cigarette. The track will be released via 10″ single on October 27 and will be backed by new B-side ‘I Am Joseph Stalin‘.

Doom legends Electric Wizard are back with a vengeance with their new record Time to Die. You can always count on them for the chuggiest grooves possible. They also have the best URL around:

Single Mothers: Marbles

We’ve posted a song by Single Mothers before and went on and on about how they kick ass live bla bla… Here’s the thing though, these dudes ARE the realist mother fuckers live – I would even go as far as to say top 5 shows I’ve seen. This is the first single off their new album ‘Negative Qualities’ due out the beginning of October. Check them out on their North American tour.


Death From Above 1979: Government Trash

The Black Angels: Evil Things

This tough-as-shit song is off The Black Angels‘ last record Indigo Meadow. They are chock full of righteous riffs dressed up by keyboards resurrected from the doors which is then layered with huge lofi sounding vocals. translation: dope. Check out their 2014 release ‘Clear Lake Forest‘.

Destruction Unit just released this song for free through Adult Swim and it sounds like a sonic sand storm in space.


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.


HSY: Phantasm Blast

Want to hear the best bass tone you’ve ever herd ever?
Thought so.


Spoon: Rent I Pay

Here is the first single off Spoon’s new album They Want My Soul. Check out the video here.

What Moon Things: Doesn’t Make Much Sense

This Track is the first release off What Moon Things’ new record and also seems like it’s the first release off their new label Hot Grits out of Athens, GA. The Contrast throughout this song is great and the huge fuzz tone is perfect.

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.


Mr. Oizo: Tricycle Express

This is another track by Mr. Oizo but from a previous movie of his called ‘Rubber‘ which is about a telekinetic tire that explodes people’s heads. Check out the trailer here.

Fu Manchu is back with a new album after five years and it’s pretty awesome. This opening track off the album sounds like it wold be on Metallica’s Kill Em All. The album artwork is pretty amazing too.


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

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.


PUP: Guilt Trip

PUP’s new album has a nostalgic punk rock feel that’s perfect for summer. It’s rare that you come across a record that is so solid and cohesive all they way through. Go get it.


Truckfighters: Mind Control

Truckfighters have been kicking out bad ass desert rock for awhile now and they’re back with another solid album that is a necessity for any cruise this summer.


Odonis Odonis: Order in the Court

We’ve had Odonis Odonis on gpR before but this new song seems to be switching things up a bit. This track has the same feel and chaos as Femme Fatale (not the Brittany Spears album, the precursor band to DFA79)


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.

Here is a B-side to the most recent release from Blood Red Shoes, a punchy 2 piece from Brighton, England.


OBN IIIs: No Time for Blues

Orville Bateman Neeley III is the James Brown of punk rock blues.

Mutoid Man has everything we like in a band, speed, chaos, o and members of Converge/All Pigs Must Die. They’re still relatively new but this shit is pretty fucking promising. Also listen to their track “Scavengers”.

Generation Loss sounds like a ripping punk band that you saw last night at a kegger/house-show. Great tape sound and driving tracks.


White Lung: Drown With The Monster

We’ve talked White Lung before. What you need to know: Great punk rock, the singer is a babe and this song rips.


Obnox: Molecule

Obnox sounds like more accessible Death Grips mixed with NIN from Ohio stay-at-home dad Lamont “Bim” Thomas.


Dead Fader: Altar Ego

This is off Dead Fader‘s upcoming 12″ Cover. Really good morning rise electronic with an erie feel. Pre-order Here.

Olga Bell is an amazing musician from Dirty Projectors that packs her tracks full of craziness. The lyrics are all in Russian and roughly about a group of people getting a battle speech.


Dances: Rat

Dances is a New York 3 piece with an impossible to google band name and some wicked psych-rock-punk. Check out this track from their upcoming release on Black Bell Records this summer.

Direct Effect: []

Get a wicked punch of punk/metal to your face courtesy of Direct Effect. Check out their video for this track here.


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

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.


Protomartyr: Scum, Rise!

Protomartyr is a Detroit band that brings us dark racing post-punk that is the soundtrack to your favorite nightmare.


Mendon Kissling: Talking About Dogs

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.


Morgan Delt: Obstacle Eyes

Here’s another tape release from Cali singer-songwriter Morgan Delt. Obstacle Eyes is great psych pop track that will remind you of Unknown Mortal Orchestra.
