New Slomo Sapiens EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Hot Milk, the new EP from trio of Slomo Sapiens, recently surfaced. Sweaty, slithering rock & roll pours out of the speakers. Harnessing fuzzed-out guitar riffs reinforced with sly, rumbling-through-the-streets rhythms, the band concocts a sugary garage-psych confection. Counterbalancing contagious vocals that switch gears on songs like “Floater,” with a heavy, omnipresent foundation, the batch of tracks appears playful at moments, but still packs a punch.





New Clamfight EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

An unrelenting menace radiates throughout III, the latest album from metal quartet Clamfight, which is available via Argonauta Records. Engulfed in an epic, long-view field of riff-rattling, the journey progressively pushes forward. A quaking, deep-embedded groove rumbles, setting the stage for the haunting command of a roaring, vocal display. An ever-explosive, instrumental force is delivered with calculated precision.





Hot Flash Heat Wave prepare to take on SXSW and embark on a national tour

With the saccharine retro sound that Hot Flash Heat Wave has coined as their own, even the repeating line from their breakout single “Gutter Girl” (streaming below), “I don’t need nothing expect for my gutter girl,” comes off as kitschy, rather than sleazy. There’s just something completely natural about the way the four high best friends blend together fuzzy guitars with recklessly fun harmonies. At its core, their sound is good, clean garage rock, infused with 60s pop sensibilities and a production value that is through the roof. It’s no surprise that they are already gearing up to embark on their first national tour, with several Bay Area dates throughout March and a pit stop at SXSW. Currently at the forefront of the Bay Area DIY scene, they're one of those bands that actually deserve all the hype they are getting (and then some.) Catch them in San Francisco on March 7th at The Independent, and check out their Facebook page for the rest of their tour dates. - Lilly Milman





New Music Video: "OK I'm Waiting" - Grandchildren

Philly DIY stalwarts Grandchildren are returning with a new self-titled album, scheduled for release in April via Ernest Jenning Record Co. Below is their new single/rendition of "OK I'm Waiting," which can originally be found on the band's 2010 debut LP Everlasting. It is also accompanied by a new music video that was directed by Bettina Escauriza. In it, you'll fine the group's performance brought to life through the imaginative eyes of a child. Take a proactive aprroach to your dreams, before time passes you by. 





SXSW Presents: Kyle Craft

 In his own ways, Kyle Craft is a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll. The Louisiana-born, Portland based singer/songwriter has a defined understanding of how to mix the two, along with folk and blues elements to produce songs that are rich with the journey through emotions and life. 

And all of this from a kid that wasn't even sure he wanted a career in music.

“The whole music thing has been a really strange cinematic sort of journey for me,” Craft says. “None of it really makes sense on paper.” It may not make sense to him on paper, but it makes sense to every last one of his fans. It made sense to Sub Pop Records, too, as they signed Craft without any question or hesitation. Not too shabby for a Southern boy with bluegrass roots. Whether he's playing his solo acoustic sets or backed by his talented band of friends, Craft older sounding tunes for a younger generation of kids. We couldn't be more pleased with that.
