I'm highlighting two groups you should definitely check out and one you should already know that hit a milestone with one of their classic albums. Hope you find some stuff you enjoy. Let me know what you like and give me your suggestions.
First up is Grim Streaker from New York. Below you can find the video for "Guts", which is a raw unapologetic assault on your senses, and I kind of love it. There's nothing clean about the instrumentals or vocals in this clip and there's no way you'd want it to be. Punk rock done right. Check them out on Facebook to find out about new releases.
Next up is Pretty Pistol from South London. You can catch their song "Man With A Gun" below. If the instrumentals don't hook you, the vocal scowls surely will. This is riot music done right. Their debut EP is out and I'll have more coverage of that in the near future. Make sure you go catch them on Facebook to keep up with all the latest.
Next is a band that shouldn't need introduction. It's a special year for L7 since one of their classic albums, Bricks Are Heavy, turned 25 years old just recently. Be sure to take a trip down memory lane and check out the video for "Pretend We're Dead" and help celebrate a band that opened up doors for many others.
