I love these guys. This song, from Primary Colors, shows their swirlier, psychedelic side, but they still keep it hard and dark. Rumor is a new album is due out later this year.
If punk royalty exists, Keith Morris is it. A founding member of Black Flag, he left to form the Circle Jerks in 1979. OFF! is his new band, signed to Vice Records.
LA’s favorite post-punk indie duo are back with their new single “Fever Dreaming”, from their 2010 release Everything In Between. The video is pretty clever. How’d they do that in one shot?
This post-punk-funk set includes classic tracks by Gang of Four and Bush Tetras as well as The Rapture and Divo. And you can have it free.
The Horror’s first single. Disturbing images master Chris Cunningham came OUT OF RETIREMENT to shoot this clip for them, starring Samantha Morton. But the BBC said the strobe lights were too disturbing and could trigger epilepsy. The video was immediately banned.
After spending the past couple of years on tour, New Jersey band Titus Andronicus are finally getting some recognition from their most recent album, The Monitor. Their guitar-driven indie/punk sound is winning over fans, even amongst the critics.
San Diego’s Nathan Williams and what’s left of Jay Reatard’s band spend the day with a skateboarding, guitar jamming, girl-getting alien. Not a bad way to come down. From 2010’s King of the Beach, out on Fat Possum.
I don’t know what your high school experience was like, but I wish mine had been a lot more like this. Brooklyn’s Derek Miller and Alexis Krauss kill it on Sleigh Bell’s album Treats.
South London post-punkers Art Brut’s fourth studio album, Brilliant! Tragic!, drops May 24th, and was produced by Frank Black (remember the Pixies?) All their songs are cleverly written and about completely mundane topics.
Sometimes you just need some good old-fashioned loud fast punk rock to get you through the day. Here’s The Dopamines with “Public Domaine.”
If you’re looking for a band that’s going to be the Next Big Thing, may I recommend England’s Chapter 24? Awesome psychedelic post-punk with a country edge. Check the video for “Gregory.”
