Wugazi

The name says it all. It’s Wu-Tang. It’s Fugazi. It’s Wugazi. It’s freaking awesome is what it is.

OFF! “Wiped Out”

One minute and fourteen seconds is not a lot of time, but ex-Black Flag frontman Keith Morris’ current band OFF! manages to pack in the punch: hot chicks in glasses, moshpits, brutal wipeouts, guns and of course, the band.

Bleeding Knees Club “Nothing To Do”

I think Australian punk-pop outfit Bleeding Knees Club are actually young enough to cite Wavves as a musical influence, and an obvious one at that. Still, it’s hard to hate on their mindless fun.

Hella “Headless”

Sacramento drummer extraordinaire Zach Hill’s project before Death Grips, Hella is a math rock / experimental rock / noise rock sandwich.

Wavves “Bug”

I really like Wavves; it’s loud and bouncy, and singing along doesn’t require much effort. The new one from the Life Sux EP which has guest spots for Best Coast and F*cked Up. Says frontman Nathan Williams, “If you hate yourself and other people, you might like our record.” Score!
