Are you tired of me raving about the Bare Wires just yet? Since SXSW I’ve been digging their solid rock n’ roll records, and with the release of their record Cheap Perfume just a few weeks from release, I’ll gladly drop a little more knowledge on you. This track is not as powerful as the earlier tracks the band has released, but I dig the subdued attitude here, demonstrating the band’s ability to just throw good old rock n’ roll right in your face. There’s no tricks, there’s no hype, just good old fashioned rock. Sometimes that’s the best kind; actually, it’s always the best kind.

Before the band release their record on Trouble in Mind Records, they’ll be hitting up Austin for what we hope is a show that comes as advertised: loud, fun rock n’ roll. We chatted up with the band before they head our way, so check out what they’ve got to say.
I’ve been jamming to this sweet new track from NYC group Woozy Viper. The band is self-releasing their latest batch of hits, titled Rock n’ Roll, which you can still grab for free from their web site, but we encourage the usual donation. They’ve got this Cramps feel, but with a little bit less of a horror approach, exchanging it for a nice little modern spin, making it catchy enough for everyone to enjoy. We dig it, and we hope you do too.
