After thirty years, 19 records, and a million shows, The Melvins remain royalty in heavy music. This fall they reign again with ‘Hold It In’, and it’s another gem in King Buzzo’s crown. All hail the rulers! Listen to ‘Sesame Street Meat’ courtesy of Ipecec.
Guadalajara, Mexico’s garage goddess, Teri Gender Bender, is back and full of woman power. Her project, Le Butcherettes, known for their wild and controversial live shows, grows musically on this second release; ‘Cry Is For The Flies'. There are some quieter moments this time, but you can expect plenty of guitars from this spooky Senorita. Listen to three songs compliments of Ipecac Records.
Vermont’s favorite laid back psych rocker, King Tuff, cruises back down from outer space with his latest, ‘Black Moon Spell’. Here’s the cool single, “Danger in the Dark" off of the new Sub Pop release. Pretty cosmic man...
The Oxford, Mississippi two piece, Bass Drum of Death, is back with their third noisy release. ‘Rip This’ features the trademark snarled vocals, fuzzy guitar riffs, and bombastic drums that make these guys so much fun. Hear the single “Left for Dead”, and get the album out today on Innovative Leisure.
Our favorite Nashville garage rockers, Jeff The Brotherhood, are back with another release. This time its an awesome EP in the form of a covers record. Tracks include songs from the Wipers, Beck, and My Bloody Valentine. You can stream it for free, go digital, or do what we did and order the vinyl. Heavy, fuzzy stuff.
Our good friends and San Diego’s own heavy swamp rockers, Blackout Party are putting their next release to vinyl. They have started a campaign on Indie Go-Go to put the much anticipated 'Float on towards our Doom’ on wax. You can be a part of it, and maybe even win a Sector 9!
Last Sunday night we ran head on into Those Darlins at a gig. They came in hot, as they are currently ripping up the countryside in support of their latest release, ‘Blur the Line’. The tough and seductive set had us swaying to their swing rock and roll. Then, before we could ask for their number, they were gone. Next time Darlins.
