Natural disasters aside it's mostly because somebody was hitting the super suck button with music submissions in my inbox. Well until this past week. I was hoping the fall submissions were going to shape-up. I honestly do try and listen to everything that comes over and I try to be fair so [...]

Stylistically, NYC's Bones Howell hearkens back to the glorious No-Wave ripple of the late-70s/early-80s. A little punk, a little goth, a dash of noise and a boatload of over-the-top aggression that recalls bands like DNA, Teenage Jesus and The Jerks and The Contortions, any of which are guaranteed to make the medicine go down any way but nice and smooth.

Over the past few years, New York's Bones Howell have been working on a full-length album sparing no time or expense to fulfill their vision. In 10 tracks the album conjures up images of an older New York, using punk, new wave, no wave, goth, and rock with a 21st century imagination. In the meantime, the group has collaborated with Bauhaus and Love & Rockets member Daniel Ash on a 7” single. Bones Howell re-imagines the Bauhaus classic Hair of the Dog , while Ash has remixed [...]
