Cold Meat – Terse, rhythmic, feminist punk from Perth, Australia

Cold Meat are a punk band from Perth. This is a track called “Nice Girl” from their new single “Pork Sword Fever”, and it has a sound that sits somewhere between Bratmobile and Good Throb. It’s coming out on Helta Skelta in Australia and Static Shock in the UK. Static Shock put out that great TV Crime single last year. Add them to the list of great punk coming out of Australia lately. A lot of the best punk in the states right now seems to be coming out of...

NOEL GALLAGHER’S HIGH FLYING BIRDS – New Single ‘HOLY MOUNTAIN’ Is A Flaming Belter…

19 October 2017 Our kid LIAM GALLAGHER released his debut solo album AS YOU WERE two weeks ago (to be honest, a better record than I actually expected) and a week later older brother NOEL launched the first single from his upcoming, third solo longplayer with his ‘High Flying Birds‘ band.

Phil Flowers – Rhythm an’ Blues (1963)

At a record show recently, I picked up a copy of Phil Flowers’ 1963 record “Rhythm an’ Blues” for just two bucks. The man selling it asked me, “You know who this is?” pointing at the cover, and I told him “Yes,” because I was familiar with Flowers, though I didn’t own any of his albums. I assumed the dealer was being condescending, as old record dudes sometimes are to women buying records, especially more obscure records. But later I...

Mountain of Wolves – Don’t Call My Name from The New Record – “Poison”

I’ve been waiting a long time for this release from London, Ontario rock and soul outfit Mountain of Wolves. The new record “Poison” is outstanding and although there has been a shifting of gears since their excellent albeit slightly more reserved folky debut record back in 2014, fans will still recognize the sound and crafty songwriting. Featuring the remarkable pipes of Richard Gracious, MoW fuse soul, folk, country, and rock and roll with great pop hooks. Hopefully...

SAINT ALTO- New Single ‘Tell Me Something’ from New Project Spiel

Ahhhh… New song from Saint Alto, “Tell Me Something” is my heaven right now. I know it’s just a matter of time before these guys are on every indie-folk station known to man. Those strong vocals could lead me anywhere and I would most definitely follow. They have a relaxing sound with heart wrenching messages and passionate sounds. It’s dark yet beautiful and it breaks my heart while mending the pain, all at the same time. Saint Alto is lead singer Phil Barber...
