More Music from the Inbox: Turrentine Jones, Severed Limb, Sexdwarf, Those Makeshift Heroes, Habitats, Hymek Manoeuvre

By Larry Lootsteen

Artist: Turrentine Jones, “Della May”

Album: Resonance

It’s funny when you listen and realize this Manchester band is cranking out some serious blues.  I tend to get lost in the alternative indie scene and the something like this wakes you up.

Sounds like:  A long, slow walk to reality…



Artist: The Severed Limb, “Washing Machine Bop”

Album: ‘Kill You and Bill You the Price of the Bullet’

Okay, this might be a weird choice from me but it really caught my ear.  And I love the dichotomy of the band name versus the sing itself!  Album out March 1.

Sounds like:  1957 in the Southern US



Artist: Sexdwarf, “I Don’t Like People”

Album: Has Disappeared Into the Mystic Dawn

Seriously, with a name like that, how can you not give it a listen? [Isn’t there a Soft Cell song by this name? I believe there is! – AC]

Sounds like:  Folksy Morrissey



Artist: Those Makeshift Heroes, “Whispers”

Album: To Capture the King

This UK outfit really bring the noise and energy…

Sounds like:  Getting completely screwed over



Artist: Habitats, “Should Know Better”

Album: Single

Another UK band that seems ready to make a push…

Sounds like:  A poppy, noisy great time

Link/Listen/Watch:  Stream on Soundcloud


Artist: The Hymek Manoeuvre , “Selfish Girl”

Album: Single

This is their debut single and just grabbed me…

Sounds like:  Manic, angry and obsessed
