Check the 10 new rad cuts just
added to this rad 2023 playlist.


1. ‘Sedative’ by VIJI (Austrian-Brazilian)

Expect a guitar-pop-infused sedative that actually
speeds up your adrenalin production.

A pure booster.


2. ‘Rosebud’ by SWAN HILL (UK)

These busy British indies have a new double
A-side single out, ‘Rosebud/Landlines’.

Rosebud is my favorite.

A riff-loaded ripper with a poppy melody edge.


3. ‘Big Trouble’ by BE YOUR OWN PET (US)

New single from their upcoming 5th LP,
titled Mommy. Out on 25 August.

A blustery punch-pop-punk projectile.


4. ‘Dream Big’ by BOB VYLAN (UK)

British grime-rap-punk duo hit again.


5. ‘Resolution/Revolution’ by THE LINDA LINDAS (California)

The teenage pop-punks keep on releasing political earworms.


6. ‘One Man Band’ by MILES KANE (UK)

By now the retro rocker has the expertise to make your day with flaming tunes.


7. ‘Saviour’ by SIRACUSE (UK)

The 2nd single of the year by this
guitar-Britpop driven Cheltenham

No, Oasis are not reunited (yet),
but their swagger and electricity
are here to save you.


8. ‘Sun Kissed Sky’ by FORGE HOUNDS (Ireland)

A punchy hard rockin’ song that is not afraid to shine its veneer with hints
of pop and catchy choruses. Think Cheap Trick meets The Undertones, with a
soaring guitar solo that lifts you up and carries you away to sunnier climes.

Summer fireworks.


9. ‘Coward’ by MARISSA BURWELL (Canada)

“This song began being written mid tearful phone conversation when I realized that I wasn’t being honest with myself. At the time it was just a statement written down but resulted in deep reflection, looking at where my desire to play something safe originated, where it came from to not trust what my body and mind were telling me.”

A smooth, electrifying groove, gripping vocals, and introspective lyrics.



10. ‘Accepted’ by MADAM SAD (Canada)

Artwork by Maddison Schreiber

Maddison Schreiber, aka Madam Sad is disabled person on ODSP. She had violent acts committed against her regularly. Things such as going without food, being threatened
with homelessness, watching rent rise as my income stays stagnant.

“This song specifically pulls from the idea that there’s a large group of people that are either apathetic or encouraging of extorting others. I feel like this is violent by nature, so to become violent within this system you then become accepted by that system”.

This stirring reverie will touch your heart and soul.

Waking Up With THE LINDA LINDAS And Their New Fervent Firecracker ‘TOO MANY THINGS’

Daily noise that works faster and harder than any stimulant

12 April 2023

(Press photo)

Last year THE LINDA LINDAS, the female punk-pop teen band, Half Asian/Half Latinx,
from Los Angeles releaed their debut album called Growing Up. A record about their generation fueled with 10 quick-tempered wallops.

And here’s their first 2023 music. A new sizzling firecracker called TOO MANY THINGS.

TLL: “We had a nonstop, jam-packed, and awesome 2022 playing shows, going on tours, and meeting fans and making friends across the U.S. as well as Spain, Germany, England, Japan, Canada, and Mexico. After taking a short break to catch our breath, recharge, focus on school, and go back into the studio, we are ready to share a song about how everything unfolds so fast all the time—the surprises, the disappointments, and the opportunities that pass us by at every moment. In the midst of all this, we hope you have space for ‘Too Many Things’ and are ready for more music, shows, and announcements coming soon!”

Wham Bam.

Xmas Is Coming, The Xmas Carols Are Coming – THE LINDA LINDAS Do It Their Punky Way

Works faster than caffeine

16 November 2022

Last April the Los Angeles-based teenage punkettes THE LINDA LINDAS
released their mouthy debut album Growing Up, singing/screaming about
their (young) generation.

Aged 12 to 18, these strong-minded juveniles have the
spiky power-pop tunes to throw a get-up-and-go party.

And they will hop around the Xmas three too this year
with the Ramones-esque ripper GROOVY XMAS

We’ll all watch Charlie Brown’s Christmas
Then Home Alone, Elf, and the Grinch
Same playlist every year
Mariah brings the cheer
And pumpkin spice lattes are here!

No silent night for The Linda Lindas

You can buy the track here via Bandcamp.

About a month ago teenage pop/punk sensation THE LINDA LINDAS released
their mettlesome debut album Growing Up, singing/screaming about their (young) generation.

Aged 12 to 18, these strong-minded juveniles put all lazy megastar bands
in the shadow when it comes to throwing a get-up-and-go party with spiky
power-pop punches.

And finally, they did what they wanted to do for a long time, recording their
cover – which they used to play live – of TONITE, the 1981 hit of their heroines
THE GO GO’S, the all-female pop-rock legends from Los Angeles.

The band explains: “The Linda Lindas started out as a cover band, and we’ve played more songs by The Go-Go’s than anyone else. And even after we started to write our own songs, we never stopped playing ‘Tonite.’ We love the idea of us going out and owning our town, and ‘Tonite’ is as fun to play as it is empowering––especially the part where we all sing together. ‘We rule the streets tonite until the morning light’ and so should our fans. Because the cover is such a hit at shows, we decided to record a studio version to pay tribute to the greatest all-female rock band of all time, a crucial part of the L.A. punk scene, and our heroes.”

Waking Up With… Some Punky Power Pop Of THE LINDA LINDAS

Works faster than caffeine

About a month ago teenage punkettes THE LINDA LINDAS released their pithy
debut album Growing Up, singing/screaming about their (young) generation.

Talkin’ About Their Generation – THE LINDA LINDAS Are ‘GROWING UP’ On Debut LP

29 April 2022

Band: THE LINDA LINDAS (Los Angeles)
Who: Awesome female teen band Half Asian/Half Latinx
featuring Mila (11), Eloise (14), Lucia (15) and Bela (17) who
play together since 2018 and already opened as support
act for punk icons like Bikini Kill and Best Coast.

Debut album: GROWING UP
Order/stream info: here

Pitchfork says: “The Linda Lindas were destined for greatness, one way or another.
The Los Angeles quartet—whose members range between 11 and 17 years of age and
are Asian American, Latin American, or both—began as part of a kid cover band organized by Dum Dum Girls’ Kristin Kontrol. The musicians, a mixture of sisters, cousins, and chosen family, then formed their own band. Within a year, they were opening up for Bikini Kill… The teen (and pre-teen) punk rockers turn adolescent angst and razor-sharp hooks into heartwarming pop-punk with ample charm.”
Score: 8/10.

Turn Up The Volume: Power to the youth. Power to The Linda Lindas!

Certainly when they talk about their generation the way these young riot grrls do,
with pop-punk gems flying all over the place. All delivered with panache, flamboyance,
and swagger. These Los Angeles-based punkettes already know how to kick out the
jams. Think The Bangles teaming up with Weezer. Don’t grow up too fast, teenagers.

Singles/clips: Racist, Sexist Boy / Oh! / Growing Up
