This is dangerous music. Very dangerous. The kind of classic punk rock energy that’ll have me doing something crazy. Like shutting down without emptying the recycle bin…or even the spam folder! Whilst I may be a joke, Seattle’s Unnatural Helpers are definitely not. Pick up ‘Hate Your Teachers’ on Unnatural Helpers new LP ‘Land Grab’ [...]
Nylon Mag have premiered Seapony‘s new single ‘Prove To Me’ from their forthcoming album ‘Falling’, due September 11 via Hardly Art. Download a free copy via Soundcloud. Its a delicate twee pop tune in keeping with their last single ‘What You Wanted’ (pre-orders here). Visit Seapony @ Hardly Art @ Facebook.
We’ve all seen Drive right? You’ve probably lapped up the soundtrack too? If you liked that then Black Marble‘s latest ‘A Great Design’ isn’t more than a stone’s throw from it. The Brooklyn-based synth pop act released their ‘Weight Against The Door’ EP back in January and are following it up with the debut LP ‘A Different [...]
The brilliant final track ‘When You Said’ from Broken Water‘s new record ‘Tempest’. Complete with pitch questionable guitars, vocals… pretty much everything! The opening acoustic guitar pops out (on an album of mass distortion) then there’s the wall of sound and grungey swagger, it doesn’t get much more rock n’ roll than this – love [...]
Broken Water have unveiled their second single ‘Underground’ from their new record ‘Tempest’ (due May 29 via Hardly Art). The Washington trio produce raw rock tunes that rattle between punk, noise and drone. ‘Underground’ sounds like early Sonic Youth on steroids. Visit Broken Water online @ Facebook / Shop @ Hardly Art.
I must admit, the opening bars of Broken Water‘s ‘Drown’ didn’t impress me much. And then, the brilliant guitar tones kick in and it all takes shape! ‘Drown’ becomes a more impressive monster the longer it ploughs on and the more abrasive it becomes. Hands down one of the strongest noise rock recordings of recent [...]
90s indie pop revivalists TacocaT released their four track EP ‘Take Me To Your Dealer’ this week via Hardly Art. The Seattle four-piece put the fun back into pop punk with ‘Spring Break-Up’. Since releasing their debut album in 2008, TacocaT are still championing the important issues society faces. As Hardly Art puts it, “tacos, cats, fluorescent [...]
Hardly Art are celebrating their five year anniversary with the release of a new tune from Seapony called ‘Prove To Me’. Punters can pick it up from Hardly Art shows at SXSW (marketing smarts)! Take a listen to the fresh twee pop tune below… Visit Seapony online / Connect @ Facebook.
Black Marble‘s ‘Pretender’ sounds like post punk colliding with synthesizers. Its dark, 80s aesthetic has been labelled as coldwave, synthwave and a number of other genres I’m yet to grasp. Fans of Joy Division, The Cure or Depeche Mode take note. Hardly Art have kicked off the year with Black Marble’s newly released five track EP ‘Weight Against [...]
Swoon! Gem Club‘s new record ‘Breakers’ was released yesterday and I’m in love. Over the past few month’s ‘Breakers‘ and ‘Twins‘ have been revealed in all their captivating glory, now they’re backed up with seven more quality creations. Gem Club‘s latest is full of space; notes pause, vocals linger, there’s heaps of breathing room to [...]
