An obviously titled second album by the Toledo, Spain garage/psych band Los Immediatos, Second Chance was a pleasant album of nine originals and two covers. Vocals were not their strongest asset, but they make up for it with some good pop melodies here and there. "Something's Wrong With You" startsthe LP in somewhat typical upbeat garage/punk fashion - not bad. [...]
Sealion is a group of Dallas degenerates that fuse vintage California punk (Adolescents, Agent Orange) with modern day garage and surf rock (Wavves). The foursome recently released their debut full length, Kenneth , which features nine sloppy yet melodic tracks full of piss, vinegar, and youthful catharsis. Where Egos Dare Where Egos Dare by Sealion Released late last month on Lo-Life Recordings (cd) and Dallas Distortion (cassette), Kenneth is solid from start to finish. It's especially meaty in the [...]
In their lead single "Wear Me Out" Summer Cannibals ask that you not wear them down. Probably because this Portland-based band knows a thing or two about that already. It's what can happen when you are a band producing, creating all the original artwork for, and releasing your debut album ( No Makeup, due out on August 6 th) on none other than your own record label. “Don't wear me down. Wear me out,” pleads lead singer Jessica Boudreaux, begging to be worn out everyday, like “your favorite dress.” Unlike the tedium that comes in getting worn [...]
[Throwback is a weekly (Thursday, natch) segment where we share a song or album from the past that we wouldn't otherwise have the occasion to discuss. We usually try to focus on the new, the fresh, and the undiscovered music here at DUL. This series gives us a chance to share songs and artists that we enjoy from other eras. They might be well-known classics, they might be hidden gems. They might be from 1969, or 1999, or even 1929. Who knows? There's lot of music out there, and this lets us share a small slice of what we like.] [...]
Nice tune. Nice masks. Crap video:
The Pigeon Detectives: We Met By Sea - The Pigeon Detectives are back with their polished garage rock album, We Met By Sea . This is the fourth album for the UK quartet and their follow up from 20112s Up, Guards and At 'Em . Formed in 2004, The Pigeon Detectives have played at both the Reading and Leeds Festivals, but have yet to make an impact in the US market. A major recording point for The Pigeon Detectives is that they want to record albums that transfer to live sound easily. [...]

J-Fur and I barely, and I mean barely, squeezed into a packed screening of This is the End last night. It is one of like 837 apocalypse movies that are due out this summer. This particular version features six friends (all dudes, all actors playing themselves) who are trapped in James Franco's house as catastrophic events begin happening outside. As the food dwindles and fever of the enclosed kind sets in, these guys are faced with the fact that they haven't been good people and don't know the meaning of friendship. Despite [...]
Eclectic Berlin-based garage rock outfit King Khan & the Shrines is making their return with the track “Born To Die”. The band has always had a great, raw sound that's pretty comparable to The Black Lips and other contemporary underground rock acts. However, they usually mix it with own uniquely psychedelic and funky stylings. Having the added strings and horn section toward the end of the track really gives this song a warm feel, and some unprecedented texture. Looking for a summer anthem? Look no further. This track comes from the band's next full-length [...]

If you in the mood for some overwrought garage garbage, look no further than Richmond, Virginia's The Nervous Ticks . Known for their raucous live performances that often leave a permeating stench around the block, The Ticks can be described as one part backwoods, meth-addled psychobilly scuzz a la Haunted George and one part "guitar, screaming, and pounding" a la The Reatards . Their Death to Videodrome tape is a good starting point, so check out the lead single Videodrome and listen to the [...]
Graves by HOODED FANG A fun, wild, garage-y track from Hooded Fang, which is actually the title track-uh, sorta-from the band's latest full-length album, Gravez . The LP is currently released on Full Time Hobby in Canada, and I'm hoping for a U.S. release soon, eh? Enjoy!
Four-piece Austin outfit The Zoltars have a winner in their latest 7" on CQ Records , Live Like Dragons . Their uncouth "outsider garage pop" sound swirls like a flash of blood drawn back into a needle on top of Western-tinged guitar chugs and hazy vocals. All My Friends All My Friends by The Zoltars All My Friends is a youth in revolt anthem with a sardonic slacker, Beat Happening-esque vibe delivered deadpan over rolling distorted rhythms. [...]
On its second album "June Gloom" lo-fi rock duo Big Deal revisits the magic of the debut album from 2011 by extending it with some new aspects and ideas The post Big Deal - June Gloom appeared first on Nothing But Hope And Passion - NBHAP - Music Magazine & more .
The Wytches are a young Brighton trio making noise overseas and here in the states with their scuzzy brand of "surf doom." The three tracks I've heard from them below reveal a band in love with dirty guitars, noisy rhythms, melodic shrieking, and random bursts of surf and psych-baked flourishes. Basically, a frantic collage of their top influences in Nirvana and The Cramps. Digsaw is bleached with a "Love Buzz"-esque rhythm as lead singer Kristian Bell nervously twitches around the the bass line until it's time to expel [...]
Douglas Martin's church ain't got enough room for all the tombs. King Tuff was already dead and reborn before most people even heard of him. By the time he released his pretty widely-acclaimed self-titled record , Kyle Thomas had already been in a million bands, including the one he formed while the ink was still drying on his contract with Sub Pop, the one he formed with all-time great J. Mascis, and the one he formed with a whole bunch of other people (who in tandem managed to [...]
