Whilst I am enduring my blogging Autumn of discontent, I thought I would share some great music grabbing my attention at the moment.
I am lucky enough to be friends with a couple of the guys in this London based 4 piece. NME recently gave their new single 8/10 and compared them to Nick Cave and Johnny Cash. Not bad for a bunch of Tamworth lads, their new single Faun is big step forward and very impressive.
The Gun Outfit
Breathtaking, raw evoking the spirit for Dinosaur JR . This 3 piece from Olympia are following in the footsteps of Olympian forefathers of indie, Beat Happening and Bikini Kill and every song is currently making my hairs stand on the end.
Another band from Olympia making ripples with riot grrrr inspired punk, just give me a plaid shirt and it could be 1990.
By now I have realised that most of these bands are from Olympia and Milk Music are no exception. Distortion drenched with powerful drumming, just close your eyes and you could be listening to a fresh Husker Du or the Wipers.
I started on a non Olympia note, so I thought I would finish on one. White Lung are a Canadian band punk band from Vancouver. They instantly remind me of early 90’s punk band 7 Year Bitch, raw and uncompromising a must listen.
