"I'm afraid of the blank page," Surrogate's frontman Chris Keene sings on the band's new single. It's a phrase that echoes through the hearts of all writers and creators across the globe. Thankfully, the California group has found a way to tackle the 'Blank Page' -- by firing a wall of distortion-heavy chords at it.
We might be in the midst of a blues renaissance. Ever since Ohio rockers the Black Keys started churning out hot-fuzz lead lines in the mid-2000s, more and more American bands have gotten reacquainted with their distortion pedals.
Terraplane Sun are a bunch of young lads from Venice Beach, Calif., who specialize in melodic and rowdy blues rock. Their single 'Tell Me I'm Wrong' commences with a clean "L.A." beat but progresses into a folky rocker with bark that's equal to its bite.
Ever heard of the Pedaljets? Well, they're important, so listen up! Hailing from Lawrence, Kan., the Pedaljets are one of those "missing link" bands between the angsty drunkenness of the Replacements and the all-out grunge rock of Nirvana. It's been 23 years since they put out an album, but that's all about to change.
Rural bands often have a bit of the woods in them. Hudson Valley's own Last Good Tooth certainly fit this description. Their latest single, 'What's What I Do,' follows an odd meter, has an odd name and whispers like the wind through the lush foliage of the Northeast. Thankfully, the band's folky stylings proved unique enough to win the favor of Team Love records, which put out their debut record, 'Not Without Work and Rest.'
Singer-songwriter Ross Wilson has had a rough life. The U.K.-raised musician grew up with his grandmother in Edinburgh, where he often skipped school and got heavily into drugs and alcohol. Though he chased a musical dream for years, Wilson’s addictions kept him from any tangible success.
London duo Smoke Fairies are in a boxy cadillac, burning through delta-blues cassettes, headed for a 'Thelma & Louise'-style fiery demise. Well, maybe not ... but that’s what their single “The Three of Us” sounds like.
Emo has certainly evolved from its primordial beginnings. From the intricate melodies of Sunny Day Real Estate, the genre took a discouraging detour through screamo, which ultimately killed the whole movement ... or did it?
