Puig Destroyer

Do you know who Yasiel Puig is? He plays on the LA Dodgers. Do you know who Pig Destroyer is? They are legendary grindcore. Do you know who Puig Destroyer is? They are a Baseball influenced grindcore band with members of Curl Up and Die & Thrice.

This shit is awesome. Just pure awesome. I read somewhere that Puig listened to Puig Destroyer during the World Series or some shit but I don't know what he thinks about the band. I hope he listens to it when he has sex.

Puig Destroyer is putting out their LP for record store say, it looks so dope. Check out their website and bandcamp, buy their dope ass shirts, circle pit in the upper reserve seats.

Mickey and Mallory

Mickey and Mallory is a pop punk band from Baltimore. It sounds like if the guy from Bear Vs. Shark fronted an awesome pop punk band. There is a lack of good p-punk bands right now, so I'm stoked that they are rising to the occasion. Instrumentation wise this is pretty much your average p-punk riffs but with really technical drumming thrown in there. Really, the drumming makes this band stand out, in my opinion. Not saying the other parts of the group aren't good, cuz its all good, but you know, mike put that little extra that makes it extraordinary.

Check them out! They play shows pretty frequently so go see them live. Buy stuff if/when you can. Add them on facebook and tell them you want to see them on tour. You know, all that stuff.

I don't really think that Vagina* is a band anymore, but they are kind of a band I guess. The group was Jon Burrier, his brother, and Zach Abate, but now its just Jon and Zach. I don't know what they are going to change their name to, if they decide to do that. I booked a show last week and they played a set and it was fucking dope.

Jon is in Les Rhinoceros and does some solo stuff. He was in Lilu Dallas back in the day.

Zach does stuff under Death Fetish, he was in Wren Lloyd and Sexgender.

So there is a new band in Lancaster. It is made up people who were involved with We Were Skeletons and Placeholder. Their name is Spill. They haven't played a show yet, their first one is on the beginning of April in Lancaster. The band doesn't really sound like the associated acts, Spill (at least from what I can tell by this first song) is an almost lo-fi rock band. Crunchy riffs, singing / sing alongs, simple melodies, that kind of stuff. I don't know if I would listen to this band all the time, but, they are worth checking out. I have a feeling they will end up being a big deal in some way or another. Blue collar 24 year old dad rock. Check it out.


Outta Pocket Magazine

A good buddy of mine just put the first issue of his Baltimore based skateboarding magazine "Outta Pocket". There are no previews or anything online yet, but if he uploads anything I will probably post them on here or something. Support my friend Pat please, he is one of the dopest people around.

Alter is a band that I play in now. The other two guys are from Barbelith. We play heavy shoe gaze, I guess, but other people who have heard our stuff have said its post punk and stuff like that, so I don't know. Our music has a massive amount of reverb and shit, it is super fucking loud, and we do some noise/ambient stuff here and there because screw it, why not. We recorded a demo / ep thing last month and recently put it online, so you can listen to it via the provided link below. We have yet to play a show because Tyler is a jet setter, but eventually we will do something. But yeah, like I just said, below is our bandcamp, so check out our stuff if you want.

Supreme Nothing

Supreme Nothing is a poppy fuzz punk band from Chicago. One of the biggest crushes of my life, Steph from Lord Snow, is in this band. They sound super 90s influenced, in the way that you could almost expect to hear them playing over the ending credits for Daria or something. I love the guitar work and the vocals sound really good, Niko did a great job recording these two songs. I couldn't find a website or anything for this group, but whatever, I'm sure soon enough something will be available. Please listen to the songs on their bandcamp, they are really good.

If you like metal music you already like Torche. They are the metal band. And they are the coolest dudes. Their newest album is streaming online, linked below, and it is so sick. The best part about Torche, really, is that now they have their own video game hosted on their website. For a while there was a contest involving beating the game and free stuff, but I don't know if that is still going on. The new album, "Restarter", is super fucking metal. It sounds like an awesome throwback to real metal, not black metal or speed metal or whatever, this is actual metal. Nothing flashy. Nothing pretentious. Just fucking metal.

Dogs on Acid

Dogs on Acid is a pop punk band, I guess, from Philly. Right off the bat I am going to just say that this group is made up of members from Snowing & Algernon Cadwallader, so as to not waste any time. I had heard of this band here and there online, but never really listened to them for one reason or another. It looks like they were just signed to Jade Tree, which is fucking amazing, so I decided to give them a listen today. I absolutely love this band. Dogs on Acid sound like a mature version of the bands that these guys have been playing in for years  (that are, of course, in this same general genre). The more I listen to this the more it sounds like Weezer, but that is probably just me. They are keeping the noodley riffs to a minimum, but since they are from Pennsylvania they are legally required to throw some in there from time to time. Dogs on Acid have a record out on Ranch Records and another one that was released on Asian Man, so check that shit out. Below is their website. Support them in anyway you see fit, but please check them out.

Pinnacle is a sludgy post punk band from San Luis Obispo. Super dirty, super dark, kind of noisey at times. The first two tracks are awesome heavy post punk stuff while the final track is spacey as fuck and about as long as the previous tracks combined. I love the guitar tone on the recordings, and the drums sound pretty dope. Not super into the vocals, but who cares. Pinnacle is sick, I'm pretty sure I saw them a few years ago in SLO. Also, worth noting that my buddy Eric, the drummer, was formerly in Burn Idols, so hopefully that means something to you. I couldn't find any web presence for the band aside from the bandcamp, so I don't know how you would / could really keep up with the band, but hopefully they get something going soon. I know they are playing NUX FEST 7 this weekend, so if you are going to that you should do yourself a favor and see Pinancle.
