BarCreeps and The ‘Battle Axe’ EP.

BarCreeps – London, England, United Kingdom. To London now for another band recently signed to growing Punk label Disconnect Disconnect Records, BarCreeps. When you are met with the deceptively playful and layered intro of the eponymous first track of this release you expect Post-Hardcore. Now, you get this in a...

Sage and The Debut ‘Procrastinate’ EP.

Sage – Cochrane, Ontario, Canada. As a herb, there is no apparent “good evidence’” that Sage has a beneficial impact on the brain. However, the best thing about this Sage, is that as a band, they’re from the same town as Tim Hortons. Now gee isn’t that a wonderful coincidence....

One Eyed Jack – Verolanuova, Italy. Now, with an album title such as the above followed by three pink Chickens, you are naturally going to expect an album not fitting of the word “normal” or any other adjective depicting just another Rock band. One Eyed Jack are abstract and with...

Traveller – ‘Resist, Part 1’.

Traveler – Fenton/St. Louis, Missouri, USA. For our previous work on the band – Click Here. ‘Part I of II – an album based around resistance and working towards what’s right’ Within moments of the first track of this latest EP from Fenton/St. Louis four-piece Traveller, you can hear the...
