Shanique Marie, cool single and the instrumental dub I guess b-side from Kingston, Jamaica:
Moon Hooch -- a skronk single from Brooklyn:

PGP is two brothers, Everett and Aaron Parks, and their new album "PGP Goes Punk" is available streaming, and the 9 and a half minute EP can be heard here in this video as well. Worth a listen if you're into pop-punk:

"What's Behind The Veil" is off their 10" "Human BBQ," physical copies still available on Bandcamp. Human BBQ was released back in April, 9 tracks, a little over 20 minutes of weirdo lo-fi surf-and-psych-tinged garage rock...highly recommended, and looks to be their first release since 2018.
This great Tarintino inspired stop-motion video is by Billy Dunz, the creator of a web series called "Mr. Disco Pants." I've never heard of it, so I watched the first episode. Mind. Blown.:

Check out these releases from Buffalo, NY's independent label Swimming Faith Records:
I featured this Science Man release, "Match Game," a while back, and it remains super-cool. 9 quick blasts of noisey fun. The 7" vinyl is still available from the Bandcamp page:
"Til It Explains" by The Midnight Vein is a two track EP, also available on 7" -- spacey r'n'r their Bandcamp page describes as "Roland S. Howard bleeding over a Spiritualized demo," and I think that pretty well sums it up:
"The Shape of Walter" by The Hamiltones is surf rock inspired by Halloween novelty songs, also available on 7" -- "edition 300 all pressed on royal blue vinyl with a randomly chosen album cover color out of 25 possibilities" -- the cover with The Creature from the Black Lagoon in his crumby digs cracks me up:
Swimming Faith has a lot of other stuff to check out, "punk and all adjacent, post-whatever sounds," as their bio says, so head over there and give it all a listen. Quality stuff.
