The Younger Lovers is a Bay Area band that is carrying on with the tradition of being really good. The punk rock movement is alive and well in Northern California and The Younger Lovers can take a little slice of credit for that.

Melt-Banana – Candy Gun; Vertigo Game

melt-banana

In the early 1990’s, rising out of the neon concrete slab of Tokyo could be heard the acoustical assault that is Melt-Banana. Their new album “Fetch” continues the tradition; and the masses wept, some for joy, others for their impending doom.

ep084 Hookworms – Away/Towards

UK band Hookworms released their debut album in October and it is a mind-blowing/mind-numbing bastion of sonic bombardment. Psychedelic jams that build, reverberate, resonate then retreat and repeat.
