Latest stuff

Box Elders
Alice and Friends LP
Goner Records

Sensational! Loved the first single but this is even greater. 14 fantastic songs and it’s close to a perfect record. This is simply a wonderful band! Don’t know how to describe them, maybe as a garagey Beach Boys meets Creedence meets something punky. Perfect popsongs. Three of the songs from the debutsingle are on here in new recordings. I wouldn’t have said no to more new songs but these sound great and the 7” is almost worn out so I guess everybody needs this. The last song, “Death of Me” ends the record magnificently. It’s been stuck in my head for weeks on end. This makes me happy! [TS]


Earthmen & Strangers
S/t LP
FDH Records

Ryan from great-as-fuck-bands like Tokyo Electron and the Reatards new band. This should really go over well with fans of Jay Reatard. Poppy, catchy and a sort of similar sound to Jay’s without sounding like a copycat. Just think they’re drawing from the same well. This really deserves a lot of attention. It’s exciting stuff. [TS]


Hex Dispensers
Winchester Mystery House LP
Alien Snatch Records

Really been looking forward to this, and it’s not going to make any fan disappointed. It’s a bit more powerful than the singles that came out between the first lp and this and while I would have preferred that rougher sound this platter’s got great songs. Punkrock that should win any fan of punkrock over. Inspired by horror, comics, bankrobbers and all things cool. [TS]


Dreads 12” EP

Mysterious band from Seattle who’s supposed to be something else live. Noise and punk is their thing. Pretty hard and disturbing but still remaining very listenable. This new 12” has four new songs and they’re as intense as ever. Their finest outing yet I think. Cool sounding and this shit just pounds your brain in. That’s really nice once in a while. [TS]


Raw Romance cassette
Burger records

A genius as ever. Nobunny seems to find it suprisingly simple to write great popsongs. The whole concept feels like a genius take on music over all. Everybody that haven’t heard Nobunny yet better catch up right away! A whole bunch of nice covers and originals makes this tape a must I’m afraid. Some of this stuff has turned up on vinyl and hopefully the rest will too cause this is too good to be stuck on cassette. [TS]


Reigning Sound
Love and Curses LP
In The Red Records

It’s been a long wait for the follow up to the amazing “Too Much Guitar” but now it’s here and it’s hard to not measure it against its predecessor. I had hopes that it would continue in the same vein but this is instead more of a step back to the sound on the earlier records. Greg’s voice is of course as magical as always and there are a few songs that are great like for example “The Bells” but otherwise “Love and Curses” don’t reach all the way. Good but not magical. [TS]


Ty Segall
Lemons LP
Cents 7”
Goner Records

He’s back! Don’t you just get really satisfied when Ty serves up a new fullenght that surpasses any expectations I had. There’s no end to the talent. He’s done something original out of garagerock and it sounds so damn great. This record’s has tons of sounds that just meshes together everything to sound like Ty. Trashy, lofi, blown out sound that just sounds oh-so-good. The "Cents" single is pretty much unmissable too. And dammit, those hits just keeps on coming. [TS]


Woven Bones
Your Sorcery 7”
Sweet Rot Records

Wow what a great goddamn single. The Woven bones from Austin have just started making a name for themselves and talk about raising the bar for themselves with a single like this. Fullenght a-coming on Hozac. They’ve got a really dark sound that brings to my mind bands like Oblivians, Gories and Gun Club. This is just a primal fucking scream from way down low! [TS]


The Yolks
S/t LP
Randy Records / Bachelor Records

Finally a fullenght after two cool singles where I especially adored their denut. This is damn great garegerock. Simple, to the point, their own. The Yolks are pretty wonderful in a lot of ways. I miss the fantastick sound/production on the debut but this is definitely a band to check out if you’re into say either the Sonics or the Mummies..or both. [TS]
