VIDEO PREMIERE: Lord Scrummage - We All Need Honey

EDIT: YouTube hates boobs and/or products made by bees so they took the video down. Vimeo to the rescue.

The video for "We All Need Honey" is a madcap mishmash of psychedelia, stop motion, hand drawn animation, and honey. A metric shit-ton of honey. Seriously. It all comes together like the sort of spring break LSD nightmare that would make Harmony Korine blush. I absolutely love these guys, and if you haven't gotten the chance to check out their New American Noise segment, you're missing out. After that, head over to the official Lord Scrummage bandcamp page and grab a copy of their latest album Triangle or Die for the low price of whatever the hell you feel like paying. If you're into fearless experimentation, boundless creativity, and shakin' your ass, Lord Scrummage won't disappoint.

Cuntz - Aloha

Cuntz are 4 slimey fucks from Melbourne, Australia that bring the noise in the ugliest fashion possible. It's loud and confrontational sludge-punk, and if you don't like it, they certainly don't give a fuck. For fans of Pissed Jeans, Total Control, Big Black, Flipper, and the like. Mastered by Mikey Young of Eddy Current Suppression Ring. This debut LP got a Record Store Day exclusive pressing from Permanent Records, and you can stream the whole thing below, or pick up one of the 21 remaining copies over at bandcamp.

Red Traces - Once Were [Single]

An email with the title "Some Twin Peak-ish kind of shoegaze" is certain to "peak" the interest of anyone, but I was pleased to hear that it's an incredibly appropriate description. A beautiful and paranoia-inducing drug led by L.A.-based musician Albert Ovadia. Only two tracks so far, both available as a free download, with a full length nearing completion. Excited to hear more.

VIDEO PREMIERE: The Group Sound - Romantic Notions

"Romantic Notions" is the first single from The Group Sound's forthcoming album and you lucky Ongakubaka reading bastards are getting the WORLD PREMIERE of the music video. I feel Like Carson Daly circa 1998 right now. This song is a nice little slice of hazy, dreamy, psychedelic pop goodness-- the perfect jam to usher in some warm weather. The band's second album, also titled Romantic Notions, is dropping this month, and if the rest of the record is half as good as this single I'll definitely have it heavy rotation.

For more info, check out The Group Sound's Facebook and their bandcamp page.

VIDEO: Haunted Leather - Midnight Women

Michigan psychers, Haunted Leather, have a new video for a new track from a new upcoming album entitled In Her Golden Room. Red Road is one of my more heavily played records of 2013, and it sounds as if these guys will continue to hypnotize minds on their next release. Can't wait.
