Completely blown out punk from Holyoke, MA. Husker Du/Wipers-esque. They've also got a 7" coming that you can stream here, and an LP in the works. firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in a physical copy of the cassette demo.
Ice cold 80's goth/post punk influenced tunes from one man musical virtuoso Luis Vasquez. I've been sitting on this one for awhile and I still can't take it out of my cd player for more than a day or two. Definitely the best Captured Tracks release this year. Pick up a copy and put some beer money in Luis' pocket.
Meant to post this one when it was originally submitted to us a few months back, but was reminded after just recently receiving it in our inbox for the second time. Lo-fi twanger two-piece from southern California. Their lazy monotone vocals and lethargic instrumentation give them some singularity in a relatively crowded sub-genre.
A one-woman project from the Hungarian also known as Nohopekids (sorry, misunderstood the email. 2 different peeps. Nohopekids = dude, Piresian Beach = chick. both from Hungary). Less punk, more shoegaze, still lo-fi, with some pretty memorable reverb drenched hooks that'll stick like barnacles.
If you didn't get a chance to check out the J.C. Satàn/Le Pécheur - Split 7" I posted back in December, this is your chance to get familiar with Le Pécheur. This one man gritty jangly psych garage pop solo project is some of the best stuff I've heard so far this year. This guy needs a label to give him a proper release asap.
