Thanxgibbin Mix

Still working my way thru email updates with this post. First off, a new traditional Fangsgibblin' tune: Peace Keeper by Bed MedsFrom a neat little collection of psych-pop songs put out by Chicago's Trouble in Mind Records: 14 From 15: The 2015 Trouble In Mind Records label sampler by Trouble In Mind RecordsI dig this bedroom pop From Minneapolis' Lawn Chair Records: Star 69 by Love CopNew weirdo stuff from Guiguisuisui, I think from New Zealand: Split Series Volume 1: Guiguisuisui Vs. Black Science by GuiguisuisuiIncidental music from the score to a new independent movie called "Counting for Thunder." My dad turned me on to this guy from Shreveport. Per the bandcamp page, Futreal built some of the instruments used on this score, including the electric gourd, electric chromatic dulcimer, electric mountain dulcimer, and chromatic gourd dulcimer. The whole album is really cool listening: Counting for Thunder Original Motion Picture Score by Michael Futre…

Alt-Rock from Dublin and Sweden; Hip-Hop from Detroit; HC from California, and Still Not Sure There's A Difference Between Grindcore and Powerviolence...

Donald Trump sucks! That being said, let's get further caught up with email submissions and bandcamp updates: Alt-rock from a Dublin based band that's been around for six years, but are now calling it quits. This is from their final album, called "Takes Forever." Takes Forever by The River FanePsych-pop Krautgaze from Sweden: Take me beyond (Edit) by Josefin Öhrn + The LiberationDetroit based resident producer for Mello Music Group: California hardcore stalwarts BL'AST are back after a 20 year interim, with a 2 song EP and Dave Grohl on drums: Rest of the set list tonight is grindcore and/or powerviolence. After a few years now of enjoying both, I still dunno the difference between them. This is from the UK: Pointless Existence (MRIP007) by Endless SwarmA two song EP from Massachusetts: One Shot, One Kill by SICK OF STUPIDITYBelgian political grindcore band Agathocles has been around for a while, apparently. This is from a full length album original…

More Rock'n'Roll.

Well, dang. I went back to Fallout 4 but realized I wanted to listen to more new tunes more than I wanted to rebuild civilization and kill mutants. So here's another smattering of sound, catching us further up on CNQ email updates: Let's start with some rad new hip-hop: Seven minute long hc punk EP from Canada: Humanidad En La Obscuridad by Desgraciados14 song rock'n'roll comp from Cleveland's Quality Time Records: Quality Time Volume 1 by Quality Time RecordsTotally: Black Time - Walkman Abortions (Cassette) by Black TimeNYC band that sings in Portuguese: Kanizadi LP by La MismaTwo songs from a new three song Boys Age EP: Tipsy Dance(feat. Summer Twins) / Doom Of You by Boys AgeFour song cassette: Assholes EP by Mommy Long Legs

A Brief Interlude From Fallout 4

Our hearts and minds are with our Parisian friends as they deal with the aftermath of the 11/13 attack. It is my contention that compassion and common decency will eventually win against violence, hate, terror, and war. It's certainly going to be an uphill struggle, but truly I tell you, some of you who are living today will not taste death before you see humanity learn to deal with each other in a peaceful and respectful fashion. Anyway. It's been a month since I went through my email updates, and this batch only covers about a week's worth, but I gotta get back to Fallout 4. I mean, if I don't save the wasteland, then who will? Let's start with a bloc of cool new female fronted rock'n'roll. Four song grindcore EP that's like 4 and a half minutes long from Tours, France: ASHES by LiverKickLondon's La Vida Es Un Mus Discos has re-issued this great kbd punk album from Barcelona's Ultimo Resorte. The band was active from '79 to '8…

New Punk: HC Crust, Grindcore, Synth and Garage...mostly from Dallas but a couple from Denton and one from Salt Lake City.

This show is going on right now in Fort Worth, I've been wanting to see Pavel Chekov for a while but fate keeps conspiring against me. This time, it's a Monday night and we just got back from vacation, so we're too pooped to party. Here's a song from each of the bands playing tonight: Female fronted crusty doom from DFW: Survey The Wreckage by WildspeakerFrom Denton: Split with Marcy, Coma Regalia, and Mothlight by Flesh Born"Progressive Crust" from Salt Lake City: Nothing For Us Here by Cult LeaderI've featured this track and other songs from Dallas' Pavel Chekov several times before, but they always bear repeating: TOUR TAPE JUNE 2015 by PAVEL CHEKOV Anyway, if I wasn't such a boring wuss I'd just drive out to that show. This first song is from Denton, but the three after that are all new releases from Dallas: Conscience Collapse by Kept In LineGrindcore from a full length released back in March. Apparently these guys have been …
