Jeremy & The Harlequins – “Nothing Civil”

By Will Oliver, June 26th 2018

Jeremy & the Harlequins are a local act who we were introduced to after their opening set for Nicole Atkins last year at Mercury Lounge. They’re returning with new album Remember This on August 17 via Yep Roc Records and have recently released its lead single “Nothing Civil.”

The band tap into some old school classic rock elements while adding their own sensibilities to give it a fresh new spin. Here’s what vocalist Jeremy Fury had to say about the track:

I wrote this song a few months before the 2016 election and it seemed really relevant at the time. We didn’t record the tune until mid-2017. Now it’s the summer of 2018 and one of my biggest hopes, and also fears, was that the song wouldn’t feel relevant anymore. But here we are. I don’t think of this as a political song so much as a song about trying to get along with each other. We have more similarities with each other than differences, and this song is an olive branch to people on every side of every fence.

Enjoy the track via the official music video which we have posted below.

Burnt Beach – “Another Drop”

By Will Oliver, May 29th 2018

Burnt Beach  is a Brooklyn-based 4-piece band who recently released their debut single with “Another Drop.” The song is ripe for comparisons to New York City rockers such as The Strokes. But there’s this cool charm to it that is perfect for a nice summer day when you’re just hanging out with a few cold beers a few inches away.

The track is a promising start for the band and we’re interested to see what else they got for us in the future.

For now, enjoy a stream of “Another Drop” below and buy the single from iTunes where you can also grab b-side “Islands.”

Warbly Jets – “Inhuman Emotion”

By Will Oliver, May 28th 2018

Although young rockers Warby Jets are based out of Los Angeles, there’s a chance you may mistake them as the latest export from London. The band capture a 90s-like Brit Rock sound that sound a bit lik the likes of acts like Oasis (they did open for Liam Gallagher at Terminal 5 last year) or more recent acts like Kasabian.

Last year saw them release their debut album but the group have stayed plenty busy and wrote their latest single “Inhuman Emotion’ and produced, engineered, mixed and mastered it all in 10 days. It was a lightning quick process but the band got it done and the final result is rock solid.

Find “Inhuman Emotion” streaming below and if you’re digging it you can buy it from iTunes.

Indigo Husk – “Not Feeling Better”

By Will Oliver, May 26th 2018

“Not Feeling Better” is a super-charged high energy indie rock jam from London band Indigo Husk.

Perfect for those days in the summer with your best mates with a cold beer by your side, this is a catch as all hell anthem that will take no time getting lodged into your head and have you hitting that replay button. This is as infectious as they come.

Stream “Not Feeling Better” below and you can buy it and b-side “James Baillie Park” over on iTunes.

Ecstatic Union – “Desert Queen”

By Will Oliver, April 23rd 2018

Los Angeles rocker Ecstatic Union sounds like “a sun-soaked harmony layered psychedelic dance party,” or at least that’s according to their press release.

Based on a listen to their single “Desert Queen,” this description is scarily spot on and does them plenty of justice. While they may not be totally reinventing the wheel, there’s enough good old fashioned rock and roll to make this song spit straight fire and give a middle finger to anyone who thinks otherwise.

Enjoy a stream of “Desert Queen” below and find it available to purchase over at iTunes.

Ash – “Buzzkill”

By Will Oliver, February 26th 2018

Longstanding Irish rockers Ash will return with their seventh studio album Islands which will be released on May 18 via Infectious Music.

The song chugs along with the expected power-pop that you’d expect from the band and that you wish Weezer would still make. It’s a charming single that seems perfectly suited for listening on a nice summer day.

Find a stream of “Buzzkill” below and pre-order the new album over on iTunes

Warbly Jets – “Between The Lines”

By Will Oliver, February 26th 2018

Los Angeles’ Warbly Jets kept busy in 2017, releasing their self-titled debut album and opening up for Liam Gallagher’s North American tour, including Terminal 5.

The band is back with new single “Between The Lines,” a new single that they released on the new Amazon Original playlist Love Me Not that was released ahead of Valentine’s Day. The track continues their trend of capturing some early 2000s Brit Rock with a lively confidence that works in their favor.

Enjoy a stream of “Between The Lines” below.

Death By Unga Bunga – “Soldier”

By Will Oliver, February 21st 2018

Norweigan rockers Death By Unga Bunga return this Spring with their fifth album, So Far So Good So Cool. It will be released on April 6 via Jansen Records but you don’t have to wait to hear it’s first single, “Soldier.”

The track dives deep into 70s rock and roll with plenty of crunchy goodness that is totally infectious and feels readymade for a night out on the town. Someone needs to make a tour happen with both them and White Reaper, like yesterday.

Stream “Soldier” below and you can preorder the album right now on their Bandcamp.

High Tropics – “You Never Made It Easy”

By Will Oliver, January 26th 2018

Australian rockers High Tropics have returned with new track “You Never Made It Easy,” which may fill the current void in any Strokes fans heart. The track calls to mind some of the early days of the band with vocals that definitely have some Julian Casablancas in them.

This is the second song that we’ve shared from these guys, with the first being “15 Years” which we posted last October. They are new to the scene but are definitely an exciting young group to keep an eye on in the new year.

“You Never Made It Easy” just premiered on Rolling Stone Australia and you can find a stream of it posted below.

Dryspell – “You Without Me”

By Will Oliver, January 15th 2018 — with 1 comment

Dryspell is a rock group out of Austin, Texas, formed by Hunter Thompson (who also plays guitar with White Reaper). The band is set to release their brand new EP More on March 1 via Highland Park, a new singles label from Roll Call Records.

They’ve released the EP’s first single, the blaring rocker “You Without Me” which definitely fits in with the garage rock put out by recent groups such as Twin Peaks and even a bit of Thompson’s work with White Reaper. On top of some devilish guitar licks, there are some pop-hooks under all the fuzz that bring it all home in rocking fashion.

Find a stream of “You Without Me” available to hear below and if you dig it, go ahead and find the track available to snag at their Bandcamp page.
