front image

'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).

The Blind Shake - Carmel (2007)

front cover
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'.

Hell's Kitchen - Mr.Fresh (2009)

And here's the latest Hell's Kitchen, Mr.Fresh, but their style of blues doesn't sound quite fresh, it sounds bloody smoky, rough and edgy with lots of warmth and driving on tons of liquor …

Clan Edison - Clan Edison (2010)

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.
