Divers Bring Out New Single

dvrsThe guys in Divers talk of walking the fine long between indie rock and punk rock, and listening to their new single, you can hear them straddling that strange divide.  Opening this tune is this jagged guitar and furious punch; it reminds me of Les Savy Fav at their most bombastic.  But, those moments subside quickly and move into a safer world where Win Butler would feel most protected..or one of those Hold Steady cats. It’s definitely something I enjoy, though I’m not sure where it falls in my life. I guess we’ll see when their album Hello Hello falls on February 17th.

Have Some Fun With Concord America

10731016_858499357527385_8808650579103540784_nConcord America has earned a lot of positive praise on this here website over the last year or so.  Since the release of their awesome Suns Out Guns Out EP back in May, we haven’t heard much from the band, but today all that changes with this brand new single “Put Your Money Down”.  Once again, the group treats us to nothing but good times with their own brand of punk rock themed pop music.  It’s a real treat.

Another Track from Legendary Wings

wingsTotally bummed. Really wanted to pick up the new Legendary Wings LP at the local shop this week, but production has been delayed.  But, at least the dudes at Dirtnap Records have opted to toss out another track that’ll get you pumped for the eventual release of Do You See.  It’s a blistering tune with a devil-may-care attitude, with the track bounding through with an emphatic bit of energy.  Beneath the grit is some nice pop-sensibility, making the song, and the future album, worth every bit of excitement it deserves. The album should be available shortly, but until then, blame Jack White.

Powerful Punk from Nots

notsThe ladies in Nots have been fleshing out their sound as of late, moving from a two-piece act to a four piece.  With that move, the group completes their sound, filling in the furious pounding rhythm section with a bit of synthesized noise.  In the end, the group is left with this rash rocker that’s as infectious as it is forceful.  But, like all great punk shorts, the song comes in under 1.45 minutes, giving you a glimpse of the work, but not overstaying its welcome.  Look for the debut from the band, We Are Nots, coming your way on November 11th via Goner Records.

Have a Rock Fit With Flesh Wounds


Here’s an easy song for anyone to like called “Bitter Boy” created by the indie punk band known as Flesh Wounds.  The tune appears on a new 7″ being release by the band on May 13th via Merge Records (pre-order here).  In the theme of this awesome short and sweet song, I will also keep this post short and just tell you to have a listen below.

Austin Spotlight: OBN IIIs


Unless you’ve been living under a rock in the Austin music scene, you are familiar with Orville Bateman’s musical project known as OBN III’s.  He is of course involved in tons of other bands in town, but this one is a personal favorite of mine.  Today we’ve gotten news that the group has recently finished a new album and is spreading the word with this great new track called “No Time For the Blues”.  It’s of course in the punk rock genre, and I’m down for that.  You can also hear some hints of another famous front man by the name of King Khan in there too, and I can’t see how anyone wouldn’t be down for that as well.

Pick up new album, Third Time to Harm, on May 27th via Tic Tac Totally Records.

Great New Tune From Angel Olsen

511I hope you’ll enjoy this great new tune  called “Forgiven/Forgotten” coming your way from female rocker Angel Olsen.  Now at times, some might try to say that the ladies can’t rock with their male counterparts, but I’d say that this tune begs to differ.  It’s a great, washed out, rock n rollin’ number that’s worthy of repeat listens.

New album, Burn Your Fire For No Witness, is due out February 18th on JagJaguWar Records.

White_Lung_KateBrown2_1When your Friday is dragging along and seemingly never ending, have yourself a listen to this new joint “Down with You” from White Lung.  It’s sure to put a pep in your step with it’s loud, fast, and fun rockin’ style.  Pay attention though, because it’s over after a short 1:48 run.  Plenty of time to brighten your day and lead you into the weekend.

This track appears on a new 7″ coming your way on October 28th via Deranged Records.
