The best Karp song ever.

This song deserves it's own post.

Karp's contribution to the Project: Echo compilation "How Si Si How" is their best song in my opinion. It shows the transition between the Karp sound and the Big Business sound. So fucking rocking.

The Catheters - Hoowwwlllling...It Grows and Grows

These guys were/are awesome. Straight outta one of the rock capitals of the world, Seattle, they really bring the dirty rock'n'roll tunes. Howling would be a great adjective for the vocals, I would say. The album title and artwork are a perfect match for the sound, this is probably their most cohesive garage punk though their album before this was definitely harder and edgier, this is more palatable. They don't really push the limits of the genre, they usually go for volume and riffs over melody or hooks but this is something for anyone who likes the sounds of yesteryear and the attitude of greats like MC5, Iggy and the Stooges or most bands out of Detroit around the same time. The obvious influences are there from grunge to proto-punk, meshed together for a good air guitar or roll down the windows and cruise record. It's a shame they broke up only 3 albums into their career but I hear some of the members formed a new band but have yet to find out what that is yet. Anyways, this is raunchy, blistering, rock'n'roll. The end.
For Fans Of: MC5, Mudhoney, Iggy & The Stooges, Young Heart Attack

Boris - Smile

Oh yeahhhhh buddy, nothing else needs to be said. Rock'n'roll motherfuckers.

Apes - Ghost Games

These guys have been around for a while. I saw them with Modey Lemon over 2 years ago and king of forgot about them except for the occasional play on my iPod. They are back with a new singer and better written songs than ever before. They start rocking on track one and never stop til the end. Less funny skit things than before but that just leaves more room for the music. A great combo of 60's/70's rock, noise and underground rock from the past 20 years.
For Fans Of: Death From Above, Modey Lemon, Liars, Deep Purple
