SICK OF YOU by School Damage


Jake from Ausmuteants and Hierophants is keeping his stellar record of bands in tact in yet another music outlet.  This time he is hooking up with his girlfriend, Carolyn, for School Damage.  After a cassette release they added a couple members to assemble a four-piece and fill out their sound. The penchant for synthy, swirly punk is still evident and their first 7" for 'School Damage' was released last August from Detonic Recordings.

PNEUMATIC DRILL by Hierophants



Hierophants are out of Australia and feature members from Ausmuteants and Frowning Clouds. Sounds too good to be true, right?  Well, it kinda is when all is said and done.  After a split cassette and a couple 7"s started to stir up the excitement last year, the four-piece are set to release two more 7"s. Goner Records are handling the release of the swirly 'I Don't Mind' this month, and the cleaner 'Pneumatic Drill' was released last week from Australian record label Moontown Records with a fabulous b-side in 'Skipping Steps.'  Debut LP from Goner and Aarght! expected in early 2015!

Silhouettes


Bunker Buster

Continental Shelf

This four piece out of Calgary features two former members of the band Women.  Their self-titled debut LP follows up last year's cassette, and will be released later this month on Jagjaguwar Records. It's a collection of seething post-punk tunes with crooning vocals that will slowly find their way to creep over you.

INFRARED by The Omecs


Some pretty damn good straightforward garage rock from The Omecs out of Grand Rapids, Michigan that will have you bouncing around and bobbing your head in joy until it falls right off.  This four-piece released their self-titled debut on cassette last month from Brooklyn based King Pizza Records and it's evident where they've picked up on sounds from bands like Thee Oh Sees and made it all their own.

[on repeat] AFRICA AVENUE by The Paperhead



The Paperhead have put together quite the exceptional set of psych/mod 60's tunes for their latest (and third) LP, Africa Avenue, which grows from the more youthful previous releases since the band formed in 2009 and parted ways from Nashville to go to college.  Africa Avenue sees the guys regrouping to expand the band's palette introducing touches of avant, kraut, and spacey folk elements to their already fully solid retro sound. Africa Avenue was released November 11 from Trouble In Mind. They just wrapped a midwest/northeast tour  (including CMJ) and are heading to Europe in February.  Let's hope they can make it out west soon.

CIGARETTE MACHINE by Ex-Cult


Memphis-based bruisers Ex-Cult have a new set of tunes laid out to terrorize your brain in the form of Midnight Passengers EP. The title track has been released as a preview and there's reason to be excited in their continued barrage of re-shaping the genre. There's also reason to be sad since this EP isn't slated to be released until February 9th on Castle Face (vinyl) and Lolipop (cassette).

Sun-drenched psychedelia fills the self-titled debut LP from My Drunken Haze out of Athens, Greece. This five piece borrows plenty of 60's tinged melodies that are likely to brighten even the gloomiest of days. The LP was released 11/3 from Inner Ear Records.
