Three Colored Wall (Tone Tree Music). Review by Jeremy Glazier.
The Scientists have been conducting their Australian experiments in proto-punk for over four decades now, and it’s surprising that they’ve yet to publish in a peer-reviewed journal.
As individuals, Jay Som and Palehound each have their musical quirks and unique style. Together as Bachelor they plot a strange new course through the realm of dream pop.
The Ghoulies from Perth, Australia look like regular blokes caught out grocery shopping, but the sound they make is an urgent, insistent punk rock howl with a frenetic keyboard bubbling through.
This week’s compendium of five carefully selected albums are all connected by a change encounter with Julius C. Lacking … maybe it was the tags, or perhaps the artwork, but the results are clear.
This week’s compendium of five carefully selected albums includes not one but TWO ska reviews. Julius C. Lacking advises you proceed with caution.
You can say that bedrock funk bassist Bootsy Collins is The One, and you would be right on so many levels.
Sometimes rock and roll seems to get stuck in a rut, but The New Madness bring fresh life to a sound that was old before they were born.
Viagra Boys don’t care what you think… there’s plenty of room for a saxophone and John Prine covers in the backseat of a 21st century punk band.
When your arrangements are razor-sharp, your moods mercurial and psychedelic, and your melodies constantly off-kilter, you’re probably a Dutch band like Certain Animals.
If I could use synesthesia to describe Woods’ music, I would say it sounds like sparkling pastel day-go colors.
There’s no detail too small or scar too deep for Eels to pick up and examine in a wry musical light.
It’s hard to to live up to a name like Young Fresh Fellows when you’ve been at it for almost 40 years, but good time rock and roll never goes out of style.

I am generally skeptical and disrespectful of band names with special capitalization, but IDLES look and sound like they mean business.
If you got The Nude Party to perform at your next get-together, it would be the kind of shindig that produces two marriages, three break-ups, and gossip for years to come.
There are many two-genre combos that will fit on Blitzen Trapper like a tailored suit, but my current favorite is “country psychedelia”.
Sneaks uses electronic layers and a disaffected delivery to create something that lives in the past and in the future and only circumstantially in the present.
Raw, stinging, and pungent like a freshly-cut onion, The Bobby Lees quickly peel away their layers to share their tender, pearl-white hearts.
