This Weeks Music Highlights November 21st, 2013

74929_551090384965667_436757689_nAs always we try to pair up songs to the features we post. It is quite the broad range from Old School to new, from Blues to Punk, Rockabilly to Psychobilly, and everything in between.

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.

1002107_535070623207636_1709817541_n 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.”

1150928_388358847930566_724733200_nThe 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.

1374115_10151691930118733_346709271_nThe 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.

1390708_10152024448874985_123188079_nThe 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.

indexJD 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.

1373973_10201406960047340_1011270615_nThe 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. 

hqdefaultLast 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.

    Well; that whistling sound you hear is the ball you knocked way the F out of the park. You are like a Musical Missionary. You spread the good Sounds to the people. I shared this to my site The Commanders Log. Thanks
