New EP From September Girls

New EP From September Girls

New EP From The September Girls

Drawing inspiration from the likes of Phil Spector, The Velvet Underground, The Cure, My Bloody Valentine and The Jesus And Mary Chain, the September Girls play reverb-soaked noise-pop of the finest order.

They first came to our attention at the start of the year with their excellent debut album Cursing The Sea, (see our posts here) and we thoroughly enjoyed their set at the Great Escape in…

New From Communions

Communions spawn from the same four-wall rehearsal spot as Iceage and Lower – and from under the same roof as most of the local new punk, industrial and synth scene in Copenhagen, Denmark.

New Darlia Single

Here is the latest single from Blackpool three piece Darlia, titled Stars Are Aligned and it may well be their best release to date.

New Video: Vomitface – Sloppy Joes

Jersey City’s Vomitface have released their debut music video for the track Sloppy Joes, from their self-titled EP released this summer!

Shot in the backroom of Revival Vintage in Hoboken, NJ, the video is both an homage and incisive send-up of the traditional performance video—the band wanted to be “completely reverent and irreverent simultaneously.

Watch and see how they managed it…
