By Juliette Jagger

Album:
Smite EP
…When the sickness takes over and turns the back of your throat raw.

Sounds like: “You don’t let me know how you feel…”

Artist: FAKE CLUB “Bullet Brain”
Album:
Single
I am overly critical of all female bands, but this one absolutely does it for me. All the pieces fit and I buy it. These ladies from London are totally brash.

Sounds like: “Love you like a lover loves a sister to a brother.”

Artist: Motion City Soundtrack “Inside Out”
Album:
Single
“Inside Out” has that same great melodic pop punk appeal that put this band on the map, but this time around it’s fuller, heavier rock and roll.

Sounds like: “Its in my blood, its what I know…”

Artist: Pompeya “Slaver”
Album:
Tropical
With an incredible knack for synth riffs, Pompeya delivers the best of new wave with traces of 70’s disco and moments that dip into funk territory.

Sounds like:  “Time after time, we’ve been loosing direction…”

Artist: GOVS “Holy Infinity”
Album:
GOVS EP
“Holy Infinity” speaks to the reality of a certain sadness that dwells in each of our hearts. 

Sounds like: “No you can’t have all you want. Just love it or leave it.”
