mp3: YOOFS – Toy Organ

Carefree, sun-drenched garage rock from the UK… need I say more?  Aight fine.  YOOFS aren’t the most original band making music now, but as I’ve come to learn more and more during this year that really doesn’t matter much when music is good.  “Toy Organ” packs a whole lot into a lean 3 minutes including a power guitar solo, a …

mp3: Only Real – Get It On

I’m honestly surprised that it has taken someone this long to release a song entitled “Get It On”… unless of course someone has already done that and I haven’t heard of it.  Regardless, Only Real’s unsurprisingly breezy jam (his first new drop in a few months) has got to be the definitive “Get It On”.  Featuring easily his most garage …

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: Gorgeous Bully – So Bored

Gorgeous Bully have been an interesting band to follow with their music bouncing from UK garage rock to anthemic slow jams and “So Bored” takes them on a breezy, summer appropriate ride.  It may not be a game changing track but “So Bored” has enough memorable hooks and guitar rawking to deserve a spot on anyone’s 2013 SUMMER JAMZ MIXTAPE. …

Video: Spring Kings – V-V-V-Vampire

In case you’re craving even more garage-rock from Manchester, Spring Kings may be your new favorite band.  The stop motion video for their appropriately stuttering “V-V-V-Vampire” matches the frantic energy and fun of the group.  It’s like cool, guys. -PK

mp3: Temple Songs – Passed Caring

Whether he’s making music as Pink Teens or Temple Songs, Jolan Lewis is a goddamn hook writing genius.  “Passed Caring” is an unsurprisingly care-free punk romper with plenty of punch packed into it’s 3 minutes.  For anyone who still isn’t convinced that Temple Songs are a legit band with “good” instrumentalists, just check out the guitar freakout/solo that carries the …
