Sam Coffey and the Iron Lungs :: Sam Coffey and the Iron Lungs
Dinosaur rock is alive and well here, and Coffey + Co deliver some great stuff that sounds like it came out of a 1970s time capsule.
Stanton Moore :: With You In Mind
A tribute to Allen Touissant organized by Stanton Moore, who plays drums for Galactic and many other New Orleans institutions. Featuring an all-star cast of NO funk and R+B luminaries, this collection of slickly produced proto-funk has something for everyone.
Pearl Earl :: Pearl Earl
Reverb- and keyboard-drenched psychedelia fronted by urgent female vocals. Out of Denton, TX, a town whose bands always deliver.
Nine Inch Nails :: Add Violence
Trent Reznor delivers more biting digial/analog fusion, with dark synth pads abetted by darker guitar tones.
Waxahatchee :: Out In The Storm
A bold performance from Katie Crutchfield, who bares her heart and rips her chords out in a cathartic explosion that eventually winds down into a somber mood.
Sun Seeker :: Biddeford EP
Lush pop with strange turns of melody and complicated hooks.
Teenage Bottlerocket :: Stealing The Covers
It’s all in the name… fast and fuzzy blow-up-in-your-face pop punk. With an attitude. These songs are all covers, but they’re from unknown/unsigned bands, so point to you, Teenage Bottlerocket.
Magnetix :: Live In San Francisco
Noisy blunt riff punk from Bordeaux, France, via Oh Sees label Castleface Records. Live, raw, and nearly unintelligible, this album showcases a rare moment in time for this two-piece.
