Homostupids - 'Sleepytime Music Man' cassette

added by Alex Deller on Sunday May 17 2015 in New Releases

Oh, there's something new by Homostupids out. Ok then. Here's what the label (Outsider) says about it: "This time Cleveland kings of Skull Music return with a tape compilation of their noisy, primitive and brainless garage punk infected EPs plus unreleased live set on the B side. Yep, we're talkin' about American greatest rock 'n' roll band here so don't sleep on this."

The Hipshakes - new LPs

added by Andy Malcolm on Sunday May 10 2015 in Bands

The Hipshakes have apparently been a band for 14 years. 14 years! Being a punk band. Fair play. And now they have two albums coming out at once.

Here's "T-Shirt" taken from "Sounds We Found".



And here is "My Confession" taken from "Maximum Growth and Vigour", an album recorded by MJ from Hookworms.



Both albums are released by SMF Records, with more details on the Bandcamp page below.
