Girlpool share new master of “Jane” — an empowering, yet twangalicous song

Up-and-coming Los Angeles duo, Girlpool have shared a new master of their song “Jane.” Aside from the annoying and very girly squeals, the song is actually pretty empowering. The song reads like a story and the moral of it is, don’t fuck with Jane; she’ll punch you in the mouth if you do her wrong. […]

The Entrance Band and Drinking Flowers infect the Satellite with sick psychedelic grooves

It’s always an flash-backing sonic pleasure when we get to see The Entrance Band live. The trio drip of all that 60 psych a la Jefferson Airplane, Pink Floyd, and The Doors.

Ride the waves in Cymbals Eat Guitars’ new “Laramie” video

Cymbals Eat Guitars’ newest release LOSE is already one of the best emo-revival records of the year. It may even be the best to come out since the Ian Cohen coined movement has started.
