If you like high-energy, loud punk rock, there's a good chance you'll like Well Aren't You Precious. They prefer to be called "rock 'n' roll" but I've taken it upon myself to label them "garage punk" because I think it better encompasses their overall sound. The boys from Iowa show that punk is still alive in the Midwest, and remind me a bit of fellow Midwest punks, Off With Their Heads. You can stream their entire album Awwwww on Bandcamp. There's also the option to buy it on CD/digital, so keep that in mind!

Earlier this year, Jared Hart from New Jersey punk band The Scandals released an acoustic split with The Gaslight Anthem‘s Brian Fallon. More recently, Mr. Hart stopped by Bouncing Souls guitarist Pete Steeinkopf’s Little Eden recording studio in Asbury Park to record a stripped-down acoustic session for the Red Bull Music Channel (full performance premiering tomorrow, Dec. 6th).
Here’s what he had to say about the experience:
“Recording at Little Eden was sort of unreal. It’s a place that houses a band that, growing up, was so important and influential to us. Then we had the chance to run the same lines and the same amps as the Bouncing Souls. You really can’t help feeling overly creative in that space – it just overflows.
With Brian and Pete, they both get it. They understand and get it in the same way that we do, with what’s going on within the realm of our genre today. They are in it for the long haul, and to share a mutual respect for the work that they do, as well as what we do, is something I value greatly.”
You can watch a video of Jared performing an acoustic rendition of The Scandals’ song “Allnighters” at Pete’s studio below.Add to My Radar
