If you find yourself flipping through just about any music magazine these days, chances are, you’re going to come across SWMRS. The west coast band is making a name for themselves with their raw song-writing and catchy pop hooks, never sacrificing rock for melody. I got the chance to catch up with SWMRS’ bass-playing extraordinaire, Seb Mueller, who is taking the whirlwind in stride, all while touring the UK this summer and juggling his film photography at the same time.

In this exclusive interview, we get an insider’s view of some of Mueller’s personal favorite shots from his last tour in the UK and some insight into how and why he chose film photography as another expressive outlet. Read the full interview and check out the photos below the cut.

DS Photo Gallery: Dan Webb and the Spiders/Bundles Album Release Show (Boston, MA)

Dan Webb

A couple of yours truly’s favorite hometown bands recently teamed up to throw a record release party in honor of their new split 12-inch, and the result was one of the most enjoyable show-going experiences of the year in the local music scene.

The two bands of honor in this case were Dan Webb and the Spiders and Bundles. Their split, which you can still stream here, marks the first release on the American imprint (run by Webb himself) of German-based Gunner Records. The evening’s festivities took place at O’Brien’s Pub in Boston’s Allston neighborhood, a no-frills bar in one of the few no-frills neighborhoods left in an increasingly gentrifying city. O’Brien’s has long provided a dark, sweaty bastion for up-and-coming local and smaller national touring bands (shoutout to the great and terrible Ryan Agate), making it the perfect backdrop for the occasion.

Birdwatching

The first band out of the chute on this particular evening was Birdwatching. For the uninitiated (as I was until showtime), Birdwatching are a local three-piece who, despite being a newcomer to the scene in ever sense, seem to have perfected the sort of lo-fi, odd-time signatured indie punk sound that’s been building over the last couple years. They’ve got an album release show of their own in a couple weeks that Bundles will actually be opening, a clear sign that Birdwatching aren’t going to be “up-and-coming” for very long.

Dan Webb and the Spiders

While they very easily could have been headlining this particular show, Dan Webb + The Spiders actually played second out of the four bands on the bill. As I’ve told you before, they’re a four-piece that grew out of a one-man project, and they grab you by the scruff of the neck and forces you to pay attention, with a sound that owes more than a little bit of inspiration to the heyday of punk-infused ’90′s garage rock. On the split that this show was celebrating, tracks like “”No Excuse” pay sonic homage to Brit-pop bands, while the band bring more of an uptempo banger vibe to “Odd Combinations” and a throwback Lemonheads vibe on “Running Around” and “Inside the Cage,” though only the former and latter tracks made it into the setlist on this occasion.

No Weather Talks

Germany’s No Weather Talks played third, and marked a pleasant surprise if ever there was one. I’d admittedly not heard them…or heard of them…prior to this occasion, but they made quick fans out of myself and many others in the crowd by midway through their first song. Playing entirely on gear borrowed from Webb and his cronies, the Hamburg-based five pieced play a surprisingly tight set of tunes that are sort of a modern rock take on a classic skate-punk sound. The only band listed on their Facebook page as an influence is Samiam, and I would go so far as to say that a No Weather Talks – Samiam comparison is entirely accurate, if Samiam were fronted by a dynamic female vocalist, in this case the captivating Faye Herr.

Bundles

What can I say about Bundles that I haven’t said before? Hmmm…well…let’s see. The band consists of three dudes with questionable tastes in guitar tuners and facial hair and even more questionable penchants for quad-revealing short shorts. I kid. Not really. Well…kinda. Anyway, Bundles have become one of my favorite local live bands in relatively short order. While they band joked that they had no business closing a show after sets by the three bands that came before them, that speaks more to the strength of the bill than it does to their own prowess, as evidence by the way they plowed through their set in prototypical punk rock fashion. While the sound is still an intense version of post-hardcore, what has changed a little as the band has grown over the last year or so is the more toned-down points in some of the newer tracks (like “Welcome To The Rusty Nail” from the aforementioned split), proving that 1000mph isn’t always a necessity to get the point across.

Music Video: Red Tank! – “Anthropocene (Revelations)”

Photo by Annabelle Klick

There always seems to be just a little more thought behind Red Tank! frontman Clipper “Danger” Arnold’s rage than you might see from your average punk band, and that distinction became intensely obvious with the release of Red Tank!’s newest video “Anthropocene (Revelations)” off their sophomore full-length BIO/FEEDBACK.

“The video is a melding of organic and technological, the real and the absurd, and rebuilding after the fall of civilization,” says the band. And it’s definitely the right style of video to follow the record’s first single “Obelisk” which may rank a little more “punk” than “Anthropocene” but which as a video pales in comparison in concept and execution. Check it out below.

The Phoenix-based quartet is hands down the best punk band you’ve never heard of. Their debut album “I Want you to Crowdsurf my Body at my Funeral” was an absolute gem, and Bio/Feedback is even better. They are also continuing to put out high quality and high concept music videos to accompany their strongest tracks.

Red Tank! seems to have a tradition wherein they work with a different director for every video, and they had Mike Buckius get into the director’s chair to helm this existential freakout of a music video. However, Arnold’s fingerprints are quite obviously all over it.



Royal Red Brigade (punk n roll) stream new album “On Crimson Shores”

Regina’s punk ‘n roll act Royal Red Brigade recently released their new album “On Crimson Shores” through Harvest King Records and you can stream the entire release below.

On Crimson Shores is the brand new album from Royal Red Brigade. The record delivers an explosive brand of Punk Rock N’ Roll from the cold, dead heart of the Canadian Prairies. Influenced by classic punk and rock’n roll bands, as well as by the innovative, genre-defying spirit of contemporary groups like the Bronx and the Murder City Devils, the album showcases their evolving song-writing and the fruits of extensive touring. From frantic to frightening, On Crimson Shores exhibits depth and diversity, anchored by the band’s truly unified and distinct sound.

“On Crimson Shores” is the band’s first release since 2014’s “Seasides”.
