Whirr has a peanut butter and chocolate situation on their hands. In a shoegaze meets punk fusion, Pipe Dreams is a open sounding album that remains grounded by distorted guitars and the like. Sound interesting? Sounds good to us! The Oakland band is playing up and down the west coast this summer so if you’re in the area, check them out.
Chicago is a city full of great food, culture, and music. Our latest artist, The Howl, knows all about embracing their city’s diverse heritage with an eclectic mix of math rock, punk, and indie sounds. Their latest album, 900 Feet Beneath, is chock full of tasty tracks featuring toe tapping drums, energetic vocals, and textured guitars throughout. We don’t like picking a single track to define the record, but do yourself a favor and check out “Dinner With Bentham” to get a taste of what The Howl is all about!
UK based Bangers hold back no punches when it comes to their latest EP, Good Livin’. The four track album has a high replay value and is full of melodic punk goodness! We’re talking raspy vocals, backing vocals you can’t help but sing along with, and a cleaner sounding guitar than one would expect.
The band’s sound channels the likes of Hot Water Music and Samiam, both of which were hugely influential to the punk scene in the 90s. Paying homage and still offering a fresh take on the sound, Bangers is a band to keep an eye on. They are doing punk right!
