BIG PEOPLE-Max Gowan

Rarely is something this good free.

A generous collection of great indie rock and folk tunes. Definitely worth your e-mail address.

BUSSES-Wizard of the Eye

Philly’s own Busses make psychedelic indie rock. They remind me a little bit of Black Mountain, only not as heavy. Which is not to say the album doesn’t have its heavy moments. “Radio,” for example, is a five minute epic of bass, fuzz, howling and wails. In other words: Awesome.

The guitar work is appropriately subtle, and there are even some cool horns tossed in for flavor from time to time, but that drumming. Holy shit. The drums on this are amazing.

There’s an mp3 for free, and then a full stream. Make sure you listen to “Rain” and “Big Surprise,” if you don’t have time to listen to the whole thing. Extraordinary.

THE SONICS-This is the Sonics


The Rolling Stones don’t really rock anymore. Eric Clapton only plays acoustic blues, and Jack Bruce’s mind is gone. Robert Plant just released a folk album. Where have the ’60s rockers gone?

Well, The Sonics haven’t gone anywhere. They’ve just releases their first record in nearly five decades, and it sounds as hard, raw and crisp as anything they did in the 1960s.

Lots of bands are retro. Lots of bands can take it old school. But these guys actually helped invent garage rock.

Their album is a mixture of originals and carefully selected covers, including The Kinks’ The Hard Way from that band’s criminally overlooked Schoolboys in Disgrace album.

Check it out.

LOS DEMOLIRS-EP1 (EP)

This sounds like it’s straight off the AOR of the 1990s, when all you heard was Green Day and Offspring.  Solid basswork, classic-sounding vocals, and muscular hooks.  Lots of retro potential here.
