NNXT – SHUT YOUR TRAPPER KEEPER EP
This is a very fun collection of tunes, and a strong debut from Atlanta’s NNXT. The vocals are ridiculously catchy, tongue-in-cheek, and right in line with modern narcissistic club culture, only they are sung by a classically trained musician with equal parts contempt and reverence for that scene. NNXT has yet to play a live show, but we’re certain when she does, this self recorded/self-produced little batch of songs will take on a monumental life of their own.
VEGAN COKE – UNTZBENON EP
Vegan Coke is a band currently on the “up and up” in Atlanta. These guys are super nice and super hard-working, albeit crusty and slightly crass fellows (we mean that in the best possible way.) They recently made their first EP available on-line and it’s brutally good. We find it to be especially good when an epic task needs addressing — sort of like a Braveheartian war cry, if you will. Please listen loud!
HIP TO DEATH – NO WAVE SINGLE
Though it’s just one song, it is a testament to blissful hearing damage all over. Hip to Death are a great live band that somehow manages to fuse surf videos with wild flourishes of guitar noise, precision drumming and dubby pick-bass lines. Add to that a swatch of fuzzy vocals, some crashing waves, and you get the recorded interpretation of their hypnosis-inducing live show. Plus they are just so damn beautiful.
