Basic Cable - I'm Good to Drive

Chicago's Basic Cable features ex members of Loose Dudes and Heavy Times as well as current members of Runners. I'm Good to Drive is a quick blast of apathetic, working class punk rock with a biting sense of humor in the spirit of The Jesus Lizard and Pissed Jeans. You can stream Basic Cable's first single "Blonde Ambition" below. Keep an eye out for a limited vinyl album release on Permanent Records in the near future.

Treasure Hunt - Global Guts

New cassette from Treasure Hunt out on Moon Glyph. Free-flowing psychedelic pop collage goodness. If you've ever played around with hallucinogens, this record plays out much like a psychedelic experience, with moments of absolute euphoria and complete paranoia. Stream it below and pick up copy heeeeere.

VIDEO: The Don Darlings - Noose 'round My Neck

My blog-laziness has hit new lows over the last few months, and our inbox is officially overflowing. After deleting countless emails based on subject line alone, this was the first submission I decided to open, and it's definitely not what I expected to hear. The Don Darlings are a spirit-plunging "Dark Americana" band from Sweden with a s/t record coming in November on Alleycat Records. Worth checking out.

The Conquerors - s/t

Swirling, overdriven, psychedelic ear candy out of Kansas City filled with excellent bassline riffs, Hendrix-style wah, and the occasional Acid Mothers Temple-sized reverb. Thanks to Brad for bringing this one to my attention.
