Labels: Boston Tea Party
'Boston Tea Party' is a brand new Belgian noise/pop/rock duo, consisting Eline Adam (percussion, vocals) and Thomas Werbrouck (vocals, guitar). This Ghent-based duo brings a very lo-fi, nineties influenced indie-rock mixed with the garage and blues that we all know from bands such as the White Stripes, The Kills and consorts...Produced by 'Millionaire' frontman Tim Vanhamel (first record he did as producer).
New link added.

Labels: The Blind Shake
Dropped in my shoutbox by mitchctim, here's Minneapolis-based post-punk/garage/psyche trio 'The Blind Shake'. With a baritone guitar and guitar cranking out psychedelic riffs, The Blind Shake merges punk aggression and post-punk control with hard-edged psychedelic rock. 'Carmel' forces a lot of psychedelia onto its punk, or maybe it's the other way around. Thx bro'.

Labels: Clan Edison
Astonishing release by French trio Clan Edison. Clan Edison are Sylvain Arnal on guitar and vocals, Harold Martinez on bass and vocals and Fabian Toulouse on drums. The Clan, from Nimes, formed in 2003, released their debut full-lenght in 2007, but they released a couple maxi's as well. They create a powerful and heavy, bluesy rock mixture where you can feel the influences of Fugazi and the Gun Club, but you'll hear the spirit of Nick Cave and Madrugada as well ... and some of the lyrics are in French. Superb album.

Labels: The Ribeye Brothers
First of all, The Ribeye Brothers are vocalist Tim Cronin and guitarist John Kleiman (both of Monster Magnet fame!). You can discribe their sound like a bad trip between the 60's pop & psychedelica of The Monkees and 13th Floor Eleveators and some bad ass country cowpunk kind of thing. 'New Ways to Fail' is the Brothers' last album, which was (self) released in 2009, their previous albums are 'Bar Ballads and Cautionary Tales' (2005) and 'If I Had a Horse', released in 2002. Enjoy.

Labels: Kill it Kid
Here's the debut album by a brand new UK based quintet, Kill it Kid, released on One Little Indian. Their heady melange of delta-blues and rootsy folk will some of you really enjoy. The album opens with a real blues-rocker, 'Heaven Never Seemed So Close', where a fuzzy slide guitars battles with a glassy violin, on 'Troubles Of Loretta' you'll hear rockabilly, or the swinging bluegrass of 'My Lips Won't Be Kept Clean', anyway, this is a varied album, with influences going from rock to blues and folk.
Btw, my excuses for my long absence.

Labels: Hell's Kitchen
Hell's Kitchen is a Geneva-based trio, they bring a hilarious style of blues, with a varied use of instruments, alternating from acoustic to electric guitar to banjo, slide to harp, spare drums to trash can percussion and a 'washtub' bass instead of a traditional bass.
It's not easy to try and make any comparisons, but Tom Waits jamming with The Experimental Tropic Blues Band is a nice start. Enjoy!

Labels: Hyacinth House
Started in 2003 Hyacinth House was Mack Johansson's solo project, but he was joined by fellow musicians ( up to 17!) when he released his self-titled debut in 2005, followed by 'Black Crows' Country' in 2007. Black Crows' Country is an intriguing and dark album with an angry combination of folk, rock and country. Whether it's an electric guitar, banjo, dobro, mandolin, harmonica or cello, this Swedish sextet use it with such a passion... Highly recommended!
