Thunderpussy get in the holiday spirit with new track

It's Christmas Eve, it's snowing, and the big day of presents and family time is just some hours away. For many, Christmas is all they look forward to but for others, it's just another clock tick on the way to the end of the year. If you weren't warm with the spirit of Christmas before, let this holiday cover from Thunderpussy fill you up.

Their rendition of "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)," the Phil Spector classic originally sung by Darlene Love and known as the greatest rock n' roll Christmas song of all time as ranked by Rolling Stone magazine, keeps that hard romanticism alive. Whitney Petty's guitar playing has a heavier twang to it, but Molly Sides' vocals keep on the same emotive plane as Love's. If anything, Thunderpussy's version could go down as one of the greatest Christmas covers of all time. 

Thunderpussy likely won't be playing this cover live after tomorrow is over, but take your chances at it by catching them at their New Year's Eve soiree at the Showbox, with Industrial Revelation, KOLARS and other special guests. Give "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" a listen below. 





Husbandry talks about gear and pedals on Delicious Audio

Brooklyn's post-hardcore/metal quartet Husbandry sounded pretty darn heavy on 2016's debut full length "Fera," but the 2017 EP "Bad Weeds Never Die" takes things to an entirely new level, with metal influences seemingly taking over emo and post-punk ones. Their distorted guitars, in this new record, are a lot more explosive and dynamic, so our friends at Delicious Audio thought about asking them a few questions about it in this Q&A. Check out their video for "Elder Spencer Deery" streaming below.





New Track: "Leopard Stealth (I'm Gone)" - Narcos Family Band

Pink Blues is the forthcoming EP from Narcos Family Band, and is scheduled for a New Year’s Eve release via Brooklyn indie label King Pizza Records. Its lead single, “Leopard Stealth (I'm Gone),” lights a fuse as a raunchy guitar riff lays the groundwork. The full band soon kicks into gear as slithering lines of saxophone and a compact, locked-in groove serve as counterpart to the unrelenting vocal aggression. Balancing quick-hitting punk with a joyous, rock 'n' roll flare, you'll find a family that plays together stays together.





Husbandry drops new EP, 12/1 and plays Brooklyn Bazaar tonight 11/30

Husbandry is the name given for mankind's domestication of plants and animals, but make no mistake--there is hardly anything tame about the thundering NYC heavy band who takes the same name. The feral four-piece lays down surprisingly melodic post-hardcore tracks with deliciously jagged edges. Following up 2016's LP, Fera, the band is slated to release Bad Weeds Never Die, an EP that promises soaring vocals and angular riffage delivered with the effortless skill and aplomb the band has become known for.  Keep your eyes peeled for the new record hitting the digital realm tomorrow, but if you're frothing over the idea of scoring the new tracks a day early, catch the band tonight (11.30) at Brooklyn Bazaar for their album release show. Check out the video for their new single Elder Spencer Deery streaming below. - Olivia Sisinni

A little relief for NorCal tonight

Northwest locals were devastated when fires took over the Columbia River Gorge over the summer. Seeing destruction of that magnitude happen to your hometown is simultaneously saddening and numbing, but does sort of strengthen the community. Bearing in mind that many of us moved here from another place anyway, it makes sense that we'd do what we can for those who've just experienced this in Northern California.

Last month Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake, Butte and Solano counties were hit with a series of 21 wildfires that devastated wine country and surrounding NorCal terrain. This slew of fires included one of the most destructive in California wildfire history, the Tubbs Fire, so there's much about the area that needs to be rebuilt.

A few Portland bands are getting together shortly to help raise some funds, with some raffles taking place in-between sets. A few of the musicians playing tonight have called California (but more specifically, Northern California) their home at one point in time, so this benefit show is a bit more personal. Enjoy some harsh hardcore punk from Worws, Phantom Family and Dead Tropics, along with a bit of a bluegrass twang from the Lonesome Valley Pussyfooters. Art and other fun things from Green Noise Records, Scapegoat Tattoo, Grizzly Tattoo, Oddball Tattoo and Josh McQuary will be raffled away betwixt the bands, and all proceeds will be given to UndocuFund. Seeing as tons of undocumented families and workers have been affected by the fires and won't be receiving federal aid, they are some of the most vulnerable beings in cases like these. 

Music for tonight's NorCal relief benefit at Tonic Lounge starts at 9pm. Entry is $8 with larger donations being accepted, with raffle tickets running one for $3 or two for $5.
