Strawberry Fuzz Share Wasting My Time

Well, in case you needed a blast to get some energy to deal with your family, we suggest trying out Venice’s Strawberry Fuzz. While the sound hits heavy, mixing in various genres to grab all the fans they can, the band have a particular “no bullshit” policy in their craft. They’re out here just smashing through your speakers, detailing all the ways in which the singer Colby Rodgers manages to waste his time. As his voice peaks, it turns from bravado into a primal yell, pummeling your eardrums, just as the song’s done all the way through. If you’re digging, this is just part of a 3-song teaser via CandyShop, letting you know what’s on the way.

Lucero, Sleepercar @ Emos 7/16

For those of you who grew up in Texas, or those of you who just like good rock music, you should know the lead singer of Sleepercar; it’s Jim Ward, formerly of At the Drive-In and Sparta.  He’s been a staple in the Texas rock scene for many years, and while his new band is a little more mellow than those previous efforts, it’s still worth seeing.  On top of that, you can see the countryfied post-punk of Lucero.  That sounds like a great bill. 

You can still buy tickets from ticketweb, and here is a Sleepercar song to boot!
