We’ve got the soundtrack to your weekend ready! Check out these mini-reviews and new tunes – this week we’ve got everything from a Spice Girls cover to a punk version of a new age track, plus some great Canadian bands for good measure.
WIDOWER – “Good Long Last Look”
Though I’ve never been to New Jersey, I’m certainly liking this song about it. Widower has a great indie sound, like a younger Springsteen. Give it a listen!
Hillsboro – “Painkiller”
Here’s a new track from Canadian indie rock band, Hillsboro – to me, it sounds like a bit of Dallas Green, American Football, and a little something heavier, creating a great sound.
Elbé – “Never Forget”
Somehow this song simultaneously reminds me of The National, Daughter, and a pinch of Radiohead sensibilities. It’s definitely worth a listen, so give it a spin and let us know what you think.
Total Rubbish – “What’s Your Damage”
The latest track from Total Rubbish is a good one, and stands out more due to my love for the movie Heathers. As they describe it, “Mix confusing relationships with a little bit of angst from 1989’s “Heathers” and you have yourself a ‘Whats Your Damage’.
Loudmouth Lisa – “Ata Corina”
This one’s for fans of Clutch, the 90s, and/or songs that just grab ya. Since I’m a fan of all three, this one was a no brainer for this week’s list.
The Nursery – “Demons”
The latest track from Canadian band The Nursey is a doomy yet dance-y track, likely unlike anything else you’ve heard. It’s almost an alternative to alternative rock. Check it out!
Will Breman – Say You’ll Be There (Spice Girls Cover)
I know I rarely post covers, but… I’m a Spice Girls fan. It doesn’t fit with my usual tastes, no – but I love me some Scary Spice. So, here’s a cover of “Say You’ll Be There” from Will Breman that he performed on The Voice – it’s a very different direction, but hard not to dig!
The Dead Milkmen – “(We Don’t Need This) Fascist Groove Thang” (Heaven 17 Cover)
Philadelphia punk legends, The Dead Milkmen recently released a new 7″, featuring this cover of a classic anti-fascist song by Heaven 17.
