[MP3] Stephie Coplan & the Pedestrians – “JERK!”

cut the small talk, cut to the chase, cut the cord, cut the crap

♫ Stephie Coplan & the Pedestrians – “JERK!”

If you can make it through this song without smiling and singing along I’ll.. probably be too busy singing to care. Stephie Coplan and the Pedestrians hail from New York City and Hoboken, and they rock. Could have been your eyes, could have been your smile, could have been your I don’t give a fuck style.. and there I go singing again. Stephie is just too bad ass to resist.

Scope the video below, and check out the band links below that.

[MP3] Bastian – “Mixed Messages”

you take me down and then you shit all over my soul

♫ Bastian – Mixed Messages

Amsterdam is home to a lot of things but now we can add to that list the foul mouthed funk dealers, Bastian. Elastic bass and crisp synths battle for center stage in this kiss-off to a waffling girl. Way to turn heart ache into sonic gold, guys! Grab a few more electrofunk jams at their Soundcloud.

[MP3] Harriet – “I Slept With All Your Mothers”

i’m slipping under cover, i gave myself to you

♫ Harriet – I Slept With All Your Mothers

The music sounds like earnest indie folk/rock and the title sound like joke-rap but the final package sounds like a band we are going to be hearing great things from. Consider that frontman Alex Casnoff used to be in Dawes and we know the band has a pedigree. Look out for the debut EP Tell The Right Story is out in January. It’s full of

[STREAM] The Ghosts – “Ghosts”

and i wont come over now ’cause you’re as bad as me for hiding

Heavy synths bulldoze my speakers and terrorize my headspace with swirling rhythms that rise up and take over. The Ghosts are here and have a musical mission to work out their demons through great music. Born out of intense loss and heartbreak in the lives of their members, the band are making the best of it with a new project that sounds like great therapy for all involved (us included). The End is the beginning and is due in April. Until then enjoy these three streaming jams. Especially “Ghosts.”

[MP3] Butcher Blades/ – “Dive! Dive! Dive!”

man your battle stations

♫ Butcher Blades/ – Dive! Dive! Dive!

Butcher Blades/ crush it again. This time Australia’s finest put us on a tropical submarine crewed by naval ducks on a mission to stay sane! We get to join in on an aquatic battle of sonic proportions that includes lots of the Blades/’ high drama. It’s big, it’s dangerous, and it’s emotional. Buckle up.

[MP3] The Belligerents – “Steal Money”

they get richer, you get poorer, economics is fun

♫ The Belligerents – Steal Money

Great band name. Great song title. Ace artwork. The music? You really had to ask? Handclaps! OOhh oohs! Reverb! It’s that perfect kind of mid-tempo propulsive jam that gets me moving but doesn’t exhaust me. Sunset roasted rock and roll for the wealthy of taste. And the rest of us or course.

Australia’s The Belligerents are tight with Gung Ho and are now added to the list of promising bands coming up from down under.

[MP3] Gang Colours – “On Compton Bay”

i know it’s easier to stay

♫ Gang Colours – On Compton Bay

Where I grew up in Los Angeles the main gang colors were red (Bloods) and blue (Crips) but now Southampton’s Gang Colours aims to expand the palate to include hues like delicate, emotive, fragile, and tender. You wont find them in your 64 piece Crayola set but sit back and close your eyes and you may just feel them.

The Keychain Collection is the man’s first bundle of songs and comes out February 27th.
