Porno Wolves

Sounding like a mix between Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, Porno Wolves have released their new album 'Renegades'. Don't let their name put you off, these boys have an impressive talent to rock your socks off.



Their mix of blues-rock is dynamic, intense and thoroughly gratifying.

Carmen Villain is the project of Norwegian singer/songwriter Carmen Hillestad. She makes ethereal and experimental music. She typically makes her music by looping her vocals and instruments while adding programmed drums. The album is turbulent, kaleidoscopic and surreal.

Caracara

 'Summer Megalith' is the shocking great debut album from Philly-based band Caracara. It's a little punk, a little indie and even a bit shoegaze.

All in all, it is a joy to listen to. From start to finish you can feel the emotions that are poured into each song. Even the loudest tracks have the softest moments.

The Belligerents - Flash

Eilen Jewell


Image may contain: 4 people, people standing

Eilen Jewell and her band play a collection of blues hidden gems and make them their own. Her amazing voice and the bands tight music make for one hell of an album.

I their own words...

"On Down Hearted Blue, Eilen and her long-time road band (Jerry Miller, Shawn Supra, Jason Beek) rip through greasy versions of dark blues like Charles Sheffield’s “It’s Your Voodoo Working”, Willie Dixon’s “You Know My Love”, and Albert Washington’s “One of These Days”. The band also strips down the sound, trading in drums and electric instruments for washboards, mandolins, and banjos to cover songs like Memphis Minnie’s “Nothing in Rambling”, Bessie Smith’s “Down Hearted Blues”, and Moonshine Kate’s “Poor Girl’s Story”."

So good!!!

Busty and the Bass - Common Ground

Robots With Rayguns

Image may contain: sunglasses

Lucas Patrick Smith, AKA Robots With Rayguns, is bringing his own flavor to the retro synthwave revival and it is totally rad!

In their own words....

"It's time to slow it down with "Slow Jams", a massive collection of glistening synthpop ballads. This hybrid concept album and compilation puts together brand new tunes alongside low tempo deep cuts and even classic RWR jams revamped. After the "Fresh" house party and the "Wild" trip to the neon lit club, pop in "Slow Jams" for a smooth, sensual groove to wind your night down just right. "

It does what it says on the tin.

I LOVE THIS!!!!

Far out!

Full of accomplished guitar work, incisive lyrics and stirring melodies. Two year have gone by since the last album and his musical prowess has increased significantly.
