Teen Mortgage release music video for “Is It”

DC two piece act Teen Mortgage met on Craigslist and began playing music together in January 2016. They originally formed in Liverpool,UK but later relocated to Washington DC and apparently have caught the eye of US hardcore legend Ian MacKaye.

The band have released a music video for their song “Is It.” The track is taken from their debut EP “Strange Times” which was released in May 2017. You can watch the video below.

Explaining the poor quality of the video, drummer Ed said:

“We went out the to the garage and filmed us performing our song about being generally uncertain about your whole life. Unfortunately right after, I dropped the tape down the toilet. When we fished it out and put it in the VCR, it just got dead warped and weird and we just went “all right, sound”.

Red Tank! (garage punk) stream new single “Things Fall Apart”

Phoenix based garage punks Red Tank! have just released their first single of 2017 with “Things Fall Apart” on Aug. 3 and you can give it a listen below. This is their first release since last summer’s full-length Bio/Feedback and like all Clipper Arnold penned tunes it’s fuzzy, it’s aggressive, and you can bet your bippy it’s well thought out.

Clipper is one of contemporary punk’s most contemplative songwriters and “Things Fall Apart” is very much continuing in that vein for the Arizona State Political Science major. With all that is going on in the American political landscape just about any poli/sci major might tell you they feel like things are falling apart.

The current incarnation of Red Tank! which features Clipper as the only original member and the only member leftover from even last summer’s lineup just completed a National tour and are back home preparing to roll out the rest of their record.

Playboy Manbaby (funky-punk) streams “Eldfell” EP

Phoenix funksters Playboy Manbaby‘s live set is so outrageously high energy that it’s easy to forget that the Tempe-based space cadet spazz-punks are also quite prolific in the recording studio. In the year and a half between July 2013 and Dec. 2014 as a five-piece (they’ve since added saxophone player Ricky Smash) the group was able to drop four studio releases three of which came out in in 2014 alone.

With the group having released the short E.P. Eldfell on July 5 right on the heels of their full-length Don’t Let It Be back in February it could be an indicator that Robbie Pfeffer, Chris Hudson, TJ Friga, David Cosme, and Chad Dennis, along with Smash intend to spend more time in 2017 in the studio. Which would certainly be a welcome change considering in 2015 and 2016 the group’s only releases were a live album and single “I want to Meet your Parents.”

Eldfell is two vastly different songs but they represent the duality of Playboy Manbaby’s music. The A side “Adult” is the funky side of Playboy Manbaby, with Pfeffer’s lyrics being delivered like nerdcore hip hop over drop beats and a ton of adlibs. The song is a saxophone driven ode to adolescent irresponsibility.

The B-side “Weltschmerz” brings in the more manic, punk driven side of Playboy Manbaby. TJ Friga’s guitar takes center stage on the track right next to Pfeffer’s frenzied vocals. It’s a 2-minute hard driving punk tune made for Playboy’s incorrigible droves of moshing and stage diving fans.

Give both tracks a spin below.



Porn Bloopers stream “Birds” from upcoming album “Blooper Reel”

Seattle garage punk act Porn Bloopers are streaming a track from their upcoming album “Blooper Reel”. You can listen to the track called “Birds” below.

Album Review: The Orwells – “Terrible Human Beings”

The Orwells. I have to admit I’ve got a soft spot in my heart for these guys. They went to my High School’s rival, York in Elmhurst, Illinois. Well they weren’t much of a rival, we basically whooped up on them, so maybe that’s why I’m pulling for them. Who knew that a small-town Illinois band could channel the Troggs and The Kingsmen bashing out like they’re plugged in next to a Beetle in a 1960s garage? They may not be in orbit, but The Orwells have definitely left the stratosphere. I first caught their act at the Spillover fest in Dallas TX. They made quite an impression. Singer Mario Cuomo strutted onto the stage like a rock and roll diva: blond tresses, poofy shirt straight outta Seinfeld, and 1970s-era 4 inch heels; which to me indicated that these guys did not give a fuck. A point that was driven home when they tore down the 30-foot velvet curtains precipitating an onstage melee. So they had the attitude, they had the swagger; but could they back it up? I have to admit, after that show, I was not convinced. I bought their record “Remember When” anyway and it passed the “What is this” test; which means when it came up on the Ipod, I would say to myself “What is this?” A good sign. I had it on heavy rotation going forward. Let me throw into the mix that these guys are signed on to play Riot Fest this year. And I am anxiously awaiting their set. With all that history, I felt primed to take on their major-label sophomore effort, “Terrible Human Beings.”

When it comes to comparisons, I think most often these guys get lumped in with the Strokes. I’d say that’s fair. They have a garage/surf sound that could also remind you of Black Lips, Thee Oh Sees, or Fidlar. As I drove through the flats of west Oklahoma for work, I had this record on repeat. Was that a bad thing? Definitely not. Was it a great thing? Not really. Given the hype around these guys and the fact that “Remember When” is pretty solid, I figured this album would blow me away. It didn’t. What about the tunes? “They put a body in the bayou” opens the record with a hypnotic jangly riff that pretty much personifies their surf style. Track two, “Fry,” picks up the tempo and provides corroboration for any Strokes comparisons out there. “Creatures” brings a sultry slinky riff into the mix and for some reason the song reminds me of novelty 60s garage tunes like “Flying Purple People Eater.” The one song that redeems this entire album in my opinion is “Vacation” great hook, incendiary lyrics, it’s the whole enchilada. “Turn off your television, your permission kills civilians, no one can feel your vision, they’re on vacation masturbating.” That certainly paints a picture. On “Black Francis” the band attempts some kind of homage to the Pixies. I failed to make the connection. “M.A.D” and “Buddy” display the Orwells’ ability to craft a catchy tune, but like pop rocks candy it quickly dissipates. Of the remaining tunes on the record, “Last Call (Go Home)” is the only one I found worthy of repeat listens.

The quick and dirty: IF you’re a fan of surf rock, you’ll dig this album. It’s a solid representation of the genre. If you are a person just looking for a great record, look elsewhere. Check out The Orwells’ “Remember When” and work your way up from there. I’m still anxious to see these guys at Riot Fest. Maybe they’ll reignite my interest in “Terrible Human Beings.”

Cheap Whine releases debut self-titled album (and it’s really quite good)

Ottawa’s Cheap Whine released their debut album on Drunken Sailor Records. Fast, fun garage pop punk. The instrumentation has a quick & dirty sound reminiscent of late 70s punk, but sounds just right. You can buy the digital album off bandcamp for £5 (Five GBP, which I assume stands for “Great British Phun-money”), which comes out to around six and a half Trump Bux.

Man, writing for DyingScene just ruins my wallet. Two songs into this album, and I bought it. Check out the stream below!
