Band Of Skulls – Friends


new and off the second blahblahvampire soundtrack, Band Of Skulls offer “Friends”. this one is a stomper, and unlike that death diamond track, this single must have been tracked before their food got tainted with jack white roids. it’s fixin’ to be the holiday season, and for this we are thankful.

The Brothers Movement – Standing Still


“Standing Still” is the new single from the up and coming dublin, ireland band The Brothers Movement. their self-titled debut LP drops official early november, and from the sounds of it expect an effort that channels 90’s britpop ie. early verve and oasis but with the more contemporary indie spin of bands like LA’s black rebel motorcycle club. we’ll keep you posted, but for now dig on some pretty dec rock and roll..

A Place To Bury Strangers – In Your Heart and Close Lobsters – Nature Thing


A Place To Bury Strangers’ new LP Exploding Head is shaping up to be one of our fav releases of the year.. and not just because of the name. “In Your Heart” has rightfully gotten hold of our attention for its pop sensibility yet powerfully cold composition. And in the spirit of “In Your Heart”, dig on this classic from Close Lobsters. These cats, who even opened for The Jesus and Mary chain back in 1986, rule! “Nature Thing” was recently re-released this month on a new singles collection titled Forever Until Victory and has found its way into our heavy rotation.

Kings of Convenience – Renegade


“renegade” is new from bergen, norway duo kings of convenience. the song, taken from the group’s “declaration of dependence” LP, is stunning. “renegade”, as is characteristic of most great music, takes us, picks up, and transports us somewhere else; faraway spaces, tropical climes, warm breezes. listening to “renegade”, we’re already there, “letting go/in doubt of what is thought and what is real”. press play and join us and drift…..
