Show Review: Spanish Love Songs, Melted, Rayner, Born Rivals – Los Angeles 5/20/2016

Spanish Love Songs

Some of the best shows in Los Angeles can be found in the San Fernando Valley. Not that the crowds are huge or the acts are world renowned. It’s more about intimacy and the quality of the performances. The smaller shows in bars and pubs aren’t usually things to highlight unless you’re in a large city like LA or New York. Places where the talent pool is so deep that loads of promising young artists (and even some well known acts) hone their craft at tiny venues on a consistent basis in their time off between touring. A few weeks back, we were invited to attend one of these inconspicuous events on the ‘wrong side of the hills’. So, to prove our point, we dragged LA based staffer, AnarchoPunk out of his gutter, scrubbed him up a bit and sent him over to The Surly Goat in Encino to check out some of the biggest names in up and coming punk acts at this cozy concert in the 818. Check out his full review (and some shitty pictures) below!



Album Review: Spanish Love Songs – “Giant Sings the Blues”

Back in early 2015, Los Angeles indie/emo punkers Spanish Love Songs self-released their ten track debut LP, Giant Sings the Blues. The album garnered rave reviews from critics and fans alike (even making the Top Albums of 2015 list of DyingScene head honcho, Mr. X) being compared to renowned punk/alt-rockers The Menzingers. Among the many groups to take notice was Los Angeles based, independent label, Wiretap Records who promptly signed them and re-released an extended version of the acclaimed album with three additional tracks that weren’t included on the original.

Check out the full review of this thrilling, thirteen track re-release below!

Discover some great new punk bands through the latest Wiretap Records free compilation

Free compilations have always been the best way to make new music discoveries in the opinion of this humble punk enthusiast. Admittedly, there are a lot of shitty ones out there but the Winter 2016 comp from Wiretap Records isn’t one of them. It skews a little indie at points but there are a lot of great up and coming punk bands on here worthy of your attention including Spanish Love Songs, Civil War Rust, UnderTipper and even Dying Scene Records act Problem Daughter, just to name a few. There’s even an acoustic cover of Offspring’s “The Kids Aren’t All Right” worthy checking out.

Here’s a little note from Wiretap founder Rob Castellon about the comp:

“We started doing the Wiretap comps in 2014 as a way to help promote the bands on our roster, but also sort of test the waters on bands we were hoping to work with down the line. I still actively listen to some of the samplers/comps I received in the late 90’s/00’s and like many, learned about so many new bands from them. If you don’t find at least 5 bands on here that you get excited about… there’s something seriously wrong. Bands in all genres of punk, indie, ska, post/punk, emo, etc are doing some exciting things today.”

Give it a listen below and pick it up for free download on bandcamp.

Listen to the two tracks “Hipster 101” and “THRASHER” below and pick up the 10” vinyl pressing over at Wiretap’s webstore.

Of the two tracks bassist Scott Brooks remarks:

“We decided to add two more songs on the vinyl as a bonus. We really wanted to put out a 10″ to showcase the rad cover art Jeremy Kirk put together for us. The two bonus songs really fill out the record. We debuted them at Punk Rock Bowling in Las Vegas this year and have gotten a lot of awesome feedback. Hipster 101 and Thrasher have been the anthems of the summer for us.”

The five-track EP was originally digitally released on April 21, 2015 through Wiretap.
