In a move only Jack White could make, he recorded, mastered, pressed, and sold a record all in one day. Fans were on hand at Nashville’s Third Man Records to take witness to the miracle on Record Store Day. In a matter of hours after hearing it laid down live, lucky rockers walked away with a copy. Hear the blistering 45 RPM single “Lazeretto” here.
In some kind of perfect world LA’s all girl psych dreamers, Warpaint, met up with director/former pro skater, Laben Pheidias, to make a double video. The result is our latest band crush dancing in the street and night skating with Justin Eldridge and our old friend Kris Markovich. This weekend you can find us swaying to Warpaint’s woozy set at Coachella.
East Coast indie pop rockers White Laces are the new band that all the cool bands dig. This first track off their second album is a bright, fuzzed out roller that’s hard not to like. But really, we like it because it’s called “Skate or Die”.
Our friend Hank 3 continues his DIY creative purge with a new psychedelic video from the haunted ranch. It’s off of his latest record, the intense and howling, 'A Fiendish Threat'. Here you can share his vision to the acoustic punk mantra, “Different From The Rest”. It may inspire you to stay different and do something yourself too.
The legendary Melvins front man is releasing a solo acoustic record? Can’t be! It’s true, and everything is going to be fine. “I have no interest in sounding like a crappy version of James Taylor or a half-assed version of Woody Guthrie,” he said. We never doubted you King Buzzo.
Here’s the first single, "Dark Brown Teeth" off the upcoming album, 'This Machine Kills Artists'.
Sector 9 has had woman rock on the brain all week. We’re coming down off shows from guitar rockers Deap Vally and indi dance duo Okapi Sun, so we needed another shot of estrogen. It comes in the form of Atlanta garage punks, The Coathangers, with their sharp and snarly single “Follow Me”. The tattooed trio’s next album, 'Suck My Shirt', comes out next week on Suicide Squeeze. Thanks girls.
OFF! is a punk rock super group headed up by the legendary Keith Morris (Black Flag/ Circle Jerks), any good punk fan knows that. But did you know drummer Mario Rubalcaba, who’s played in every good San Diego band was once pro for Alva? Now you know. Listen to their second really loud single "Hypnotized" from the upcoming 'Wasted Years' album on Vice Records.
Our Aussie friends, DZ Deathrays deliver another blow to the head from their soon to be blasted LP, 'Black Rat'. “Gina Works At Hearts”, the second single, is a 1, 2 combination of crunchy metal riffs and pitch perfect vocals. It’s a lot of welcomed racket from this talented and loud duo.
