Record Of The Day: Jeff the Brotherhood- “We Are The Champions”

Jeff the Brotherhood successfully combine a blasting Ramones-style force (GREAT starting point) with a  crunchy guitar tone not unlike 90s-era Weezer. Imagine loads of 8th note hi-hats and downstroke riffage married with spaced out stoner rock guitar solos. This is Jeff the Brotherhood. OK, how about this… Imagine the first Queens of the Stone Age record but with a massive bubblegum sensibility. Get it yet?

These guys are great and they’re playing @ TT the Bear’s on June 21st. Get hip!

Reggae Tapes @ In Your Ear

ATTN: Reggae Heads and/or Cassette Nerds.

On my weekly visit to In Your Ear Records, I discovered that they’ve just acquired a MASSIVE amount of reggae on cassette. Good stuff too!!! Everything from rocksteady to dub (didn’t see any dancehall). Everything was in really good condition and priced at 3-4 bux. Spread the word.

Remember… summertime = reggae.

Spring Zine Thing

The Spring Zine Thing occurs THIS Sunday @ the Washington Street Art Center in Somerville!

For those not looped, this is basically a zine sale/swap/hangout.

FREE admission BTW.

 

Peep the flier for deets:

 

Liquor Store and White Pages @ Midway this Saturday

I’m very busy with La Parca this weekend. I’m sure Este will blog the deets soon. If I wasn’t soo busy, I would definitely be at this show on Saturday. Fact. Who doesn’t love an afternoon show?

 

Record Of The Day: Heavy Cream- “Danny”

Just picked this LP up last night after Heavy Cream opened for Hunx and his Punx at Great Scott. Fun show. Fun times.

Heavy Cream… Imagine if the Runaways were a bit faster and Joan Jett always had her way. If you wanna call “Danny” a punk rock record, that’s fine by me. If not, Also fine. I’m not bothered. It hits hard, it blasts through, it’s fun and it’s catchy. Also, Heavy Cream’s drummer is REALLY GOOD. Get hip!

Record Of The Day: Magnetix- “Rib Out” 7″

Magnetix are rock royalty over in the European garage scene. Funny thing, I hadn’t realized they were a 2-piece until I saw (and opened for) them last night @ Great Scott. Guitarist,  Looch Vibrato rocks lots of reverb/delay/loops to create a VERY full guitar sound. I suppose this is why I hadn’t realized there were a duo. Makes total sense. They were fun last night… hence the record purchase. Get into it.
