90′s grit and dark melancholy pervade Solids’ Wait It Out, a taste from the duo’s forthcoming Else EP, due out April 15th on Topshelf / Dine Alone Records. Scuzzy pop punk and angsty alt rock make Wait It Out a bitingly hypnotic, soothingly weathered treat from the Montreal based band. It’s tough to avoid getting lost in its sludgy guitar and crashing high hats, its slow simmering rumination utterly mesmerizing. Pre-order Solids’ Else EP from Topshelf, here.

Black Honey’s All My Pride is an irresistible glob of fiery and fierce exuberance, a vivacious 60′s pop meets 90′s alt spectacular. The magnificent song even boasts some twangy Spaghetti Western moments. All My Pride’s spunky “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’” attitude is interwoven with Garbage like gooey muck. The new single is a fine representation of the UK based band’s name. Black and honeyed, despite their seemingly contradictory qualities, both abound plentifully on All My Pride. Coarse fangs drip candied sweet sorrow in a rollicking, uplifting ode to breakup angst.

Who needs drugs when we have DREAMERS? The Brooklyn band are a lifetime’s worth of intoxication and charm on new song Drugs. The shaggy garage rock anthem’s pop punk luminescence and sludge filled gaiety combine for one of the most hooking, uplifting grunge fests of late. Drugs is like a Weezer, WATERS, and Bleachers rollercoaster extravaganza. “I don’t want to come down”, they bellow. There’s no coming down while listening to this raucous and rowdy gem.

Chicago three piece Bailiff take me on a time traveling trip into the past with a grungy song named Enemy Lines, whose crunchy guitar and playfully punkish aura evokes much loved Weezer of the 90′s, with a dash of sludgy Dinosaur, Jr. The hooking alt rock tune will be featured on a split 7″ with their buddies Alpha Consumer entitled Phone/Lines. Bailiff’s vocalist Josh Siegel said he wrote the song rapidly, after getting inspired by some wordy XTC and Elvis Costello lyrics one night prior to band practice.

The new Baroness is some sensational stuff, and I highly recommend you dive into their vivid hybrid music and lyric video for Shock Me below. It starts off rather demure for the Georgian band before bursting into the thickly sludgy, riff thrilling metal we’re accustomed to from them. You might recall the news that flooded the music world some time ago when Baroness was involved in a horrible bus accident. Shock Me is their first track since then, and what a glorious return it is. New album Purple will be out December 18th on Abraxan Hymns,

Nick Drake is a bewitching and spectacular debut single from yet another new artist from Sweden, a spunky act named MIYNT. The song is a sultry, fiery, and stormy listen. Finely layered and drenched in a swirly, noisy ambiance, it gives off a thoroughly intoxicating sound that borders on frenetically dizzying. MIYNT’s debut envelopes from all sides in a drunken, sludgy haze of sensual, punk-y Karen O blended with trip hop Phantogram and Crystal Castles’ grimy electropop.

Baroness back at it

I’m sure most of you have heard of the horrible freak bus accident that Georgia sludge band was involved in earlier this year. It hasn’t been that long, but here are members of the band performing for the first time since that unfortunate incident. John Baizley and Pete Adams do an acoustic version of their song Stretchmarker off album Yellow & Green. Glad to see them recovering and back at it.
