It seems like my day will continue to rock with these new songs from Memphis based Ex-Cult. So the band is releasing a brand new 7″ soon, and in preparation they have posted both of the new songs on bandcamp for all to enjoy. I’m sharing both below, and many of you might recognize “1906” from earlier this month, but new song “Summer of Fear” is really doing it for me. While rock at it’s core, I love the overtones of punk rock and psychedelia as well.
Pick up this new 7″ on vinyl via Famous Class on August 12th.
Los Angeles based band Walter create their very own style of psychedelic music with some throwback tendencies and heavily distorted guitars. Have yourself a taste of that irresistible sound with this latest single entitled “Poetics of Space”. It may take you a little while for this one to grow on you, but I can assure you the droning and heaviness will eventually grow on you with each and every listen.
This track is part of a new 7″ single due out on July 1st via Famous Class.
Didn’t want foks to think we’d gone soft today, so I dug up this recent single from Zig Zags, just to make sure we kept things rocking. Like all things from the Zags, it’s just a straight ahead rocker, with a little bit of flare on the noisy side of rock n’ roll; there’s no bullshit, no frills, no catch…just a good rocking jam. This just one of four new songs that’ll blast your speakers on the band’s Slime 7″ EP, which will come out on August 11th via Famous Class. Go ahead and turn it up.
By now we hope you’ve taken notice of all the rad releases from the Famous Class LAMC 7″ single series, and this one with Parquet Courts and Future Punx will definitely be a nice little gem to add to your personal collection. The Future Punx single is down below, which shows that the Brooklyn act really have a smooth approach, though one that differs vastly from what we’ve come to expect from Parquet Courts. That’s what I like to see, some branching out, some reaching out from the big bands to their smaller friends. Proceeds from this release go to the Ariel Panero Memorial Fund, so it’s a good cause too…which means you can stream the song, then go download it and throw some dollars their way.
One of the most recent releases from the Famous Class stable has really won me over today. Of course, it does come with a bit of sadness, as the band in question, Tough Knuckles, is the one of Ariel Panero, a promoter and popular man in the NYC music scene who passed away last year. I’m pretty sure this record came to light awhile back, but FC just out up VANNAWHITE on their bandcamp for FREE, which means you need to go check this out now. For me, it doesn’t really matter when or where it came out, as the songs themselves are pretty timeless, and for those of us not fortunate enough to know the backstory, it’s a great discovery. Made my day.
