The Pickup

Bands and new music for fans of jay-reatard


by Wrong Odds

Wrong Odds go 'Psycho' with their debut single. A taping foot, a nodding head, or a chaotic mosh pit, this punk rock duo aims to make you move. The songs are fast, loud and bound to get stuck in your head.

Autumn Shade

by Happy Animal

Hi, Happy Animal here, The noise I make is described as Mancunian LO-FI FUZZ POP/Garage Rock. Like a shook up can of fizzy vimto. I have just dropped my debut single 'Autumn Shade'. Its fuzzy, catchy and heavy. I self produced, recorded and released this track from home during lockdown. Thankyou ✌️

Greetings humans and non-humans of the extended Punktastic Universe. This song is from an EP we made in 2017. It's about the unsettling encroachment of the manipulative digital advertising world into our personal lives. It has electric guitar and piano, which we all know is a winning combination.

by Birds Fear Death

I'm Kelly and I make music under the name Birds Fear Death. This track is from an album which I wrote and recorded in my bedroom. It's noisy and rough but hopefully enjoyable.

This is our first recorded song, and it's melodic, catchy, bratty, and a bit aggressive. Jon Phillip on vocals/guitar/drums (Limbeck, Ben Weasel, Tommy Stinson) with Scott Schoenbeck on bass (Dashboard Confessional, Promise Ring).
