If you aren’t listening to Amyl and The Sniffers yet, I feel sorry for you… or I envy you, because that just means you still get to discover them. Let me guide you along your punk rock journey. I will gladly be your sherpa.
Amyl and the Sniffers is a Melbourne punk-as-fuck band for fans of Dead Boys and The Stooges, with a lead singer that sounds like a much angrier Courtney Barnett. They recently graced the cover of Razorcake Magazine, and are currently rounding out a U.S. expedition before heading across the pond for an eighteen date stroll through Europe.
Their latest single, Monsoon Rock was just released on March 6 through Flightless Records (Australia), ATO Records (America) and Rough Trade Records (everywhere else), and if you don’t know, now you M*%#@’ F*$#%!^’ know!!!
Check out their bandcamp page here, and stream that shizzzzzzzzz on Spotify. Give the song “Some Mutts Can’t be Muzzled” a listen and let me know what you think.
