New rad indie cuts to re-charge your batteries with, weekly
19 September 2022
“It is a raw sound, which seeks to reproduce the sounds of the suburban factories,
among which we lived when we were children. The sound of the Great Machine of
Industry at full throttle. We are happy because we believe that the album transmits
that strange energy typical of today’s big cities, wrapped in smog, pollution and
The EP’s opening track is a beating steamroller propelled by a repetitive,
head-twisting Chemical Bros-like techno riff and tense vocals. It gets
under your skin without asking. It’s a pitch-black sledge-spammer.

Band: SUNSHINE RIOT
Who: Indie grungers from Boston, MA.
Track: JUST SAY SO
The opening (and my fav) cut of their new rowdy 7-track Sparkle Baby 2000.
Sarkling new EP which lands somewhere between The Replacements and Nirvana.
Led by a pair of well-received singles (“Just Say So” and “Parole Board”) and a whole
lot of college rock and jangle-pop melody, the whole record is a gateway to autumn..
You can buy the EP via Bandcamp.
Just Say So has a post-grunge and slacker rock plangency that balances, sonically,
between Sebadoh and Dinosuar Jr. Infectious, bluesy, and spiked with jangly
guitars and ardent vocals.

Band: THE SPEED OF SOUND
Who: Longtime rock outfit. Throughout their long journey,
they have always been idiosyncratic, counter-intuitive and
perpetually looking for something new.
One of the new double A-side single.
After a punchy drums/haunting vocals intro this jagged jam explodes
with fervid firepower and turns into a psychedelic trip driven by feverous
guitars. Midway the roller coaster restarts heading to a sinister finale.

TrippTheGoat: “It’s different, I tried to make it completely different
from anything you ever heard. I just want people to know my power.”
Swirling flow, funky pace, waterfall rapping, and sticky as hell.

Track: COMMANDER TRAINWRECK
Skinner: “It all started when I was let go from my shitty office job that I hated. At the time I thought “this is great, I’ll just take some time off and spend it writing loads of music then I’ll
get a new job”, but it didn’t really work out that way. I didn’t know what I was doing with my life. I invented the character of “Commander Trainwreck” as a way of embracing my situation. I wanted other people to know that it’s okay to fuck up and if you need some time, then you need some time. I think everyone needs to be Commander Trainwreck at some point in their lives.”
For all the messed-up minds out there, here’s the ideal anthem that can be a consolation for your confused reality and despairing emotions. Commander Warinwreck will show the way with this terrifically magnetic groove that turns slowly but surely into a nasty I’m looking like shit rocker. Stand up, get up and fight for your right to fuck up.
Right here, right now.
See/hear you next week, music junkies
