Feels Good

by Slow Death

I exist in a dystopian reality where parasites pose as philanthropists, governing us ever close to destruction. This song is a tribute to their hysteria.

"Give The Ghost To Me"

by Science Man

Buffalo, NY’s lab rat Science Man is back with a new LP "Science Man II". Think if Hot Snakes started playing only basement gigs with weirdo hardcore bands after listening to Big Black and Judas Priest in the van all day.

For fans of

Object Permanence

by Strangelight

We're Strangelight from Oakland, CA. Our debut album, Adult Themes was released on October 23rd. This track, Object Permanence, is one of my favorites on the album. A blast to play live, and an example of the benefits of not overthinking things. Not that we're ever in danger of that.

For fans of

In A Sense

by trvss

this is the first track off our second album, New Distances.

For fans of

The Coathangers

For 12 years, The Coathangers have been building an infallible reputation for chaotic punk rock and visceral live shows, but this sixth LP is a record that captures their established takes on vitriolic punk, playful house-party anthems, and heart-worn ballads and melds them all.

For fans of

Nature Channel

Hello from Brighton garage-punks Nature Channel! Our last record got a lovely review from Punktastic (http://www.punktastic.com/album-reviews/nature-channel-nature-sounds/) and was well received by fans, and we're hoping that everyone loves our sophomore effort 'Almost Optimistic' just as much!

For fans of

Careering

We're Careering, a DIY five piece from the North West, UK. We have short fast abrasive jams -no gimmicks.
