Baby Jesus :: Took Our Sons Away

Garage rock revivalists from Sweden, guaranteed to make your monkey dance.

Nine Inch Nails :: Add Violence

Trent Reznor delivers more biting digial/analog fusion, with dark synth pads abetted by darker guitar tones.

Waax :: Wild and Weak EP

Whip-smart hooks, electronic frosting, and a sassy female vocalist make for a good combination.

Chicano Batman :: Freedom Is Free

A fluid mixture of influences and identity, with tropical flavors and delicate pop sensibilities layering up with street-tough attitude for some songs, like a leather-jacketed hoodlum holding a bouquet of roses.

CFM :: Dichotomy

Fuzzy solo project from LA fixture Charles Moothart, with a DIY ethic clearly in place.
