by The Idiot Kids

Hi! We're The Idiot Kids, a Garage/Punk Trio from Detroit. We have the "energy of punk, the roughened aesthetic of garage rock and the melodic sensibilities of art pop." The track "Wilted Bloom" is a song about the allure of relapse to an addicts brain and the constant fight against it.

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.

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.

Downright Sin

by Thousandaire

Sup? We are Thousandaire from Atlanta and this is the second single off our debut LP. It’s to the point, with a sharp hook, a rippin' fuzz guitar solo, and a requisite-yet-oft-overlooked tambourine track. Hope you like listening as much as we love playing it.
