This week we featured bands from The United Kingdom, Canada, The United States, Sweden, and Norway. So in case you missed it here is a brief rundown of the bands we used in the last week.
July Talk’s “Summer Dress” out of Toronto, Canada. Their Band Camp intro describes them as, “July Talk isn’t easy to pigeonhole. Imagine Tom Waits and Amy Millan shouting whiskey-soaked lullabies while backed by Crazy Horse and youʼd have a start. Striking a balance between Americana and indie-rock.”
The Frights “Cold” out of San Diego, California. A mix of Garage, Surf, and Punk. Their Facebook Page says, “The Frights started in December of 2012 in order to have fun/make loud music/get hunnys and munnys.” We hope they are getting both.
The Silks “Living In The World” out of Providence Rhode Island. Their Facebook Page goes on to say, “Rock and Roll may not be dead, but it does seem like there’s a priest leaning over its bed, reciting the last rites. However, if The Silks have anything to do with it, the body will soon be out of bed, bopping around the room.” We could not agree more.
The Suicide Syndicate’s “In it For Life ” from Malmo, Sweden. This Punk bands Band Camp page goes on to say, “Another damn record label!! Is that what the world really needs? We do think so!! In this dying age of political correctness, moral panic, musical conformity, and fabricated pop-idols – We are in a desperate need for a cure!” We believe they could be the perfect medicine and just what the doctor ordered.
JD McPherson’s “Scratching Circles.” This Broken Arrow, Oklahoma born former school teacher has restored quite a few people’s faith that Good old rock and roll still exists, and we are one of them.
The Black Kat Boppers from South Hampton, England “Your Picture.” We love these guys. Some great Rockabilly with a modern Rocking Beat. They are releasing their first CD so keep a look out for it.
Last but not least, as we were able to see these guys in Prague and we Fu$#@*g Love them are the The Carburetors, out of Norway with “Burn Out,” from their album Pain is Temporary, Glory is Forever.
