New Rock'n'Roll Videos from Sweden and France; New Rock from Pittsburgh, Michigan, and The Isle of Man

Loyal Quieteers (both of you) might have noticed it's been a couple of months since I've done a regular old CNQ blog post. I've been having a lot of fun with the podcast. But, that's my typical M.O. I'll go hard on a new project and focus on it to the detriment of anything else for a while, then eventually come back around to whatever it was I was doing before I got manic about the new thing.

So anyway, here's some new rock'n'roll.

From Malmö, Sweden's Shallow Shit Records, here's a new video from "spiritualist musical collective" Piglet Outlet:

From Strasbourg, France, here's another new video, this from the band Slaap:

Two new heavy tracks from a new split put out by two Pittsburgh bands, Cyrus Gold and T-Tops:

Bobby Hatch is a bluesy rock'n'roll band from Michigan with a new album out. Songs are in a Jack White vein:

Finally, what CNQ post would be complete without something from Small Bear Records? Here's an awesome, noisy tune from Small Bear's first ever live EP. It's a four song EP and this is the last track, from Phil Reynolds and the Dearly Departed (which is four-fifths of CNQ dears Postcode, also featured on the EP):
