Aeroplane Flies High- Honey EP

Liverpool grunge power trio Aeroplane Flies High wear their influences on their sleeves. Named after one of my favorite b-sides from The Smashing Pumpkins, the band combines distorted fuzz, pounding drums, and husky yet harmonious vocals to produce a revitalized alternative rock sound.

Their latest EP, Honey, builds on the sound they unveiled on their debut song, Blossom: gut jiggling, homemade pedal-fueled fuzz that sounds like Foo Fighters' rock-outs covered in basement dust.

Wild Balbina- Sisters Before Misters 10"

Wild Balbina is a 4-piece garage/fuzz pop group from Vigo, Spain that just released a helluva 10" on Elefant Records. Building off their signature youthful energy, Sisters Before Misters journeys through garage pop, Riot Grrrl, and surf while incorporating influences like NME’s C86 and the recent west coast sound.

Their wildly magnetic melodies ride the reverb and distortion and the short-but-sweet song structures make playing the album over and over feel like second nature.

Crosss- Spectre

I've been sitting on this track for a couple of weeks now (busy) but have been playing it every day since discovering it. 

Crosss is a trio from Halifax that mash elements of grunge and metal to create a moody sound loaded with dirty, driving guitars. Spectre is from their recent split 7" with New Brunswick psych-punks Astral Gunk via Pleasence Records, and immediately hooked me in with its guitar crunch and spooky yet melodic vocals. Compared to the rough-around-the edges tracks on their debut album Obsidian Spectre, this single shows off a tighter and more accessible sound that a lot of people are going to dig.

2 New Songs from Basketball Shorts and Surfin' Mutants Pizza Party

Here are two more upbeat cuts from the forthcoming split from Austin-based party punks Basketball Shorts and one-man-Canadian-punk-band Surfin' Mutants Pizza Party set to release July 22nd on Fleeting Youth Records (cassette/digital).

Surfin' Mutants Pizza Party's self-titled track sounds like a long lost theme song to an awesome 90s cartoon. It's both anthemic and buoyant as Julien Maltais's gravely croon rides and grinds the pileup of twisting guitars and pulsing drums with ease.

Basketball Shorts' Candy Boys is yet another Shorts song that will worm through your head all day as lead singer Ben Seligson shouts a catchy story about someone with a tickle in their nose for that sweet white candy. The woah-oh-ohs and yea yea's makes this two and a half minute pop punk gem a must add to your summer playlist.

I'm diggin' this new tape from Brooklyn's TOONS featuring members of Lost Boy ?, Baked, and The Actuals. Made up of Matthew Gregory, Davey Jones, Brian Wess, and Ryan Foster, TOONS blend Pavement-like pop quirk with subtle nods to cowpunk and 90s alternative.

Want You Back stood out to me with its driving guitar swirls and repetitive vocals that avoid monotony by being catchy as hell. Old Flame Records, the label that put out the cassette, want you to listen to Milkn (below), which is equally as catchy and asks the ever important question: where did all this milk come from?
