Gorgeous Bully – I Can’t Sleep…

Of all the garage rock bands we’ve covered on this website, Gorgeous Bully were not at the top of my list for artists who’d be able to pull off an unarguably gorgeous (yup) song.  “I Can’t Sleep Because I’m Afraid You’ll Leave” says it all in the title, it’s unashamedly sentimental and relatable for anyone who’s ever fallen in love. …

Gorgeous Bully – I Think

After a few weeks of shamelessly embracing normcore hits such as “Shower” and “Fancy” I decided it was time for a detox.  “I Think” is a breath of fresh air for any pretentious blogger who’s been too busy to sit down and scowl at the world for a bit.  Not that this song is a bummer.  It’s not.  “I Think” …

mp3: Passion Pusher – Your My Favorite Coast

On the outside, Passion Pusher’s “Your My Favorite Coast” is four minutes of blown out fuzz.  And for the most part that’s all “Your My Favorite Coast” is, an impenetrable wall of fuzz, distortion and melody-less noise.  But there is something else there underneath all that fuzz that is barely even discernible but affecting.  It’s something that shakes around like …

Video: Temple Songs – I Can’t Look After You

Despite the wave of Manchester-based fuzz-pop and punk groups that dominated our blog in 2012, Temple Songs have managed to rise above and outlast the rest as clear standouts.  I’ve written the story a few times now, but I never expected Temple Songs to be where they are now after listening to their (really just Jolan’s) earliest material.  It’s been …

mp3: Temple Songs – Dinosaur Alley

Temple Songs have come a long long way since I listened to their first very exciting yet very rough-edged 15 Bygones tape.  Due to what I can only assume are amazing performances around England and a constant stream of catchy jangly rock, Temple Songs are finally putting out their proper premier release as a full band.  Cheers. -PK

mp3: Cough Cool – Blue Eyes

By the end of every summer I am usually ready to take a break from scuzzy, tape-hiss filled bedroom recordings that dominate during warm weather season.  It’s April now so that season is just starting and “Blue Eyes” from veteran bedroom rocker Cough Cool isn’t a bad way to tee things off.  Guitar is the real driving force behind this …
