You didn’t think I was going soft on you did you? I’m the resident punk rocker here, and I’ve written about Steve Adamyk Band before on these very pages. On this new track from the group’s upcoming LP, they pummel quickly through the track, using sharp guitar chops with hints of feedback swirling. Before you can blink, the track’s got you hooked, and then it’s over. Sure, I could use an extra 45 seconds, but beggars can’t be choosers, right? If you dig what you hear, the band will be releasing Third on February 5th via the most excellent Dirtnap Records.

Towards the beginning of summer, we brought you the first taste of this new gritty punk rock band out of California Plateaus. With the excitement around here about the band back then, you had to know we’d be posting their songs every time a new is sent our way. This great new song “Stop Messing Around” will appear on the band’s upcoming self-titled debut LP due out October 30th on Art Fag Records.

If you’ve been living under a rock for the past several years, then perhaps Riverboat Gamblers is a band you’ve never heard of, but those of us in Texas have long been witness to the rockers. They’ve just announced their latest LP, The Wolf You Feed, and they’re currently offering up this rad new single for your ears. If the music isn’t enough to get you going, then also take to heart that the group has fleshed out their sound with the help of another notable Texas punk, Mark Ryan of Mind Spiders. The more I listen to this jam, the more excited I get by the prospect of a full length—you can grab it for yourself on May 22nd.

Here’s a new song from Denver based outfit SAUNA who, despite their land locked location, create some fun and intriguing surf doo-wap style pop music. The track below “Please Don’t Go Away” is in the same vein as some of the swooning tunes from Cults, but then other tracks throw more punk your way similar to Thee Oh Sees. Check out the tune below or a few more on their Teen Angst Tape EP via bandcamp.
