It’s very likely that I’m running a day or two behind on posting this new Big Deal song, but alas, I do not care because I’ve been talking about this band way too long to not post their new music now. If you don’t spend all day on the internet, maybe you haven’t heard this rocking new song called “Avalanche”. One can of course hear the more fleshed out and full rock n roll sound one might expect when expanding your band from a duo to a quartet. Count me in as a continuing fan of this band and their no nonsense take on indie rock.

Here’s the deal, drop whatever you’re doing right now and check out this new song called “Ghost Valley” by ATH approved band Sun Voyager. Seriously, this song hits pretty damn hard and all fans of real rock n roll will get behind this one. I’m just pumped that the boys were kind enough to send our way. Let’s say thanks by hitting play on this one and preparing for a gem.
This track is on a new 7″ single out today on King Pizza Records.
As we power through the middle of another boring week, let’s introduce some rock into all of our lives with this new single from Lawrence based Psychic Heat. Their new single is called “In Two” and is intended to be played at a volume level of 11. It drives you, it hits you, and it begs you to let go and enjoy. Nice effort gentlemen.
Debut albumSunshower will hit stores on May 27th via High Dive Records.
Nathan’s been talking about Glasgow based Womps for sometime now so I figure I better get on this train before it’s too late. Today brings us word of this shiny new, rocking single “Plasticine”. Am I crazy when I compare the song to some really old grunge rock like Soul Asylum? I can’t be the only one hearing this…. I know several others have thrown out the Pixies references, and I see that too, but just entertain me on that one for a minute. Labels aside, you definitely need to check it out now.
Our Fertile Forever is due out on June 10th via Displaced Records.
I know Nathan has been going crazy with some song posts over the last few days, but this guy needed a little break from it all for a spell. Today I’m ready to jump back into things with this great new track from Seattle based Lisa Prank. The new song, “Starting Again”, falls in to the lo-fi garage rock genre with complimentary pop elements to keep things catchy and light. Hope you enjoy this new one as much as I do.
Adult Teen will drop on June 24th via Father/Daughter Records.
I’m sure some of you out there have already heard this badass new SKATERS tune, but I’m going for it anyway because it’s just too good to not have on our site. The song itself, entitled “Head On To Nowhere”, is a straight up rocker similar in style to a band like Waves with a little more edge to the sound. To be perfectly honest, if you aren’t feeling this one with me, something must be wrong with your musical taste.
SKATERS officially split from the major label and will be taking the DIY route for their next release. Stay tuned for more information as we receive it.
Before I get too far carried away with the pop music today, I wanted to toss in this brand new single from Running…you know, just a twist of differentiation. The track opens up with a pretty frantic pace, using buzzsaw guitars and a pummeling rhythm section to really build the song’s energy. Eventually, they slow it down just a touch for the vocals to reach at your ears from an echo-y distance; there’s even a few shouts, which comes as no surprise as the band is set to release their new LP on Castle Face Records, the home of John Dwyer. Wake Up Applauding will be released on January 4th, offering something loud and boisterous to kick off the New Year.
I feel like a good bit of pop music always needs to be juxtaposed to something a little more dangerous, a little more sinister. So, it’s a good thing the folks at Land Ski Records have been so busy lately, offering up this new blast of rock n’ roll from Ripper. Take the sound of the guitar, combine it with the angsty vocal delivery, then toss in a nice pounding beat from the drum section…add it all up and you’ve got something ready to build a riotous little pit in your favorite venue. The Minneapolis four-piece will be kicking out their new A.D. EP in early December via Land Ski and Lawn Chair Records.
I might not have been in college at the time, but I think the early 90s had this incredible musical sensibility that’s often been traded for more hits or more shares. With that, it’s refreshing to hear acts like The Brainstems who seem to have gotten things exactly right twenty years down the road. There’s musicianship, but there’s also an indifference to mass consumption that allows for the group to ply their trade with straightforward rock n’ roll that makes you feel alive. This is the first tune to come from the group’s debut, No Place Else, which will be released on November 27th.
Glasgow group Holy Esque has certainly seen many posts on this here website over the years, and rightfully so. Amazingly enough after several years of coverage on ATH the band is finally releasing a proper full LP after a couple of EPs to keep us happy. Below is a taste of the new album with new single “Hexx”. Old fans of the band will immediately recognize the distinct and powerful vocals of lead singer Pat Hynes. Let’s not forget the powerful rock sounds coming from the rest of the band who manage to compliment those vocals perfectly. Carry on.
At Hope’s Ravine will hit stores on February 26th via Beyond the Frequency.
