Mike Rep & Friends: Darby Creek Drifter (LP) 2014

540 Records

recommended ****


Rev offers a set of folk/hillbilly, a bit of a surprise from this Ohio underground legend, but it’s no surprise that this is an enjoyable set.

Meercaz: S/T (LP) 2009

Tic Tac Totally Records 027


Muzz and the gang from Puddletown, Oregon make a sound like some heavy music recorded in a basement in 1972, like some lost low-fi gem from the acid-rock era. 10 more words

Hector's Pets: Pet-O-Feelin' (LP) 2104

Oops Baby Records 010


Sounding like they’re taking cues from the 60s (from the Beach Boys to the Good Rats) and Detroit through the ages (from Brownsville to the Dirtbombs).  Recommended 21st century rock.

Vacation: Candy Waves (LP) 2013

Let’s Pretend Records 069


Chugging along with the shang-a-lang bounce of the Ramones…Cheap Trick…the Monkeys…dropped into an acid batch fuzz of VU…Verlaine…Greg Sage…noteworthy 21st century garage.

Martha: Courting Strong (LP) 2014

Salinas Records (Detroit)
**** (Recommended)

UK anarcho pop, self-described straight-edge, which makes sense, not because this has a HC SE sound, but rather because it has a refreshing bright-eyed non-stoner clarity.  8 more words
