Jericho SirensAfter a 14-year hiatus from the studio, Hot Snakes have
triumphantly kicked down the door back into our lives with their
new album, Jericho Sirens. And amid the mania of non-stop
political rhetoric, doom-and-gloom prognostications and
omnipresent technology, it's not a moment too soon.
Hot Snakes formed in 2000, after the release of their first
record, Automatic Midnight. They were John Reis, Jason
Kourkounis, Rick Froberg and Gar Wood. The band's sound
represented a return to the unrealized past of its members. This
time, their musics would be direct, undraped and rock 'n' roll
while still maintaining the dense and turbulent character of the
members' previous work. That year, Hot Snakes found their live
sound and established themselves as primo, down-stroke
warlords. They followed with a pair of great albums - 2002's
Suicide Invoice, with drummer Jason Kourkounis, and 2004's
Audit in Progress, with Mario Rubalcaba on drums - that
broadened the band's sound while pleasing many a fan.
However, the band eventually spiraled downward into a mid-life
punk crisis, and by 2005 they had stopped performing.
BUT! 2011 saw the return of Hot Snakes, with a string of festival
shows. Both drummers performed with the band on the songs
which they recorded, and the group discussed writing new
material. After an additional 6 years of discussions, Hot Snakes
returned to the studio in 2017 to commence recording, and the
results are, finally, revealed in Jericho Sirens.
Musically, Jericho Sirens incorporates the most extreme fringes
of the Hot Snakes sound (the vein-bulging, 78-second "Why
Don't It Sink In?" the pounding downstrokes of "Having
Another?"), while staying true to longstanding influences such as
the Wipers, Dead Moon and Suicide on propulsive tracks such as
"Six Wave Hold-Down," one of the first written for the project
during a New Year's Eve 2017 session in Philadelphia. Other
moments like the choruses of "Jericho Sirens" and "Psychoactive"
nod to classic-rock titans such as AC/DC and Ozzy
Osbourne, with Froberg admitting, "I'm as much a hesher as I
am anything else, that's for sure." For Reis, reactivating his
creative partnership with Froberg was one of the most rewarding
aspects of the process: "Our perspectives are similar. Our tastes
are similar. We work really well together. And what more is there
to say? Rick totally outdid himself on this record, vocally and
Jericho Sirens was recorded in short bursts over the past year in
Philadelphia and San Diego, with assistance from longtime
bassist Gar Wood. Kourkounis and Rubalcaba, both of whom
drummed on prior Hot Snakes releases but never on the same
one, contributed throughout.1. I Need a Doctor

The Cave Singers spend a good deal of time beyond the darkened edges of Seattle, in the mist and mystic, among the wolves and redwoods. And their songs, at least on record, have always been like beautiful, faded grayscale photos of this hinterland. Now, these photos are injected with hot blood and technicolor, a ferocity and bite weve yet to see from the band.
By all accounts, No Witch is The Cave Singers rock record. Laid to tape with dark wizard producer Randall Dunn (Black Mountain, Sunn O))), Boris), No Witch is grander and more lush than The Cave Singers previous efforts. Its also a nervier, scrappier affair: greasy guitars buck and rear up; Eastern-influenced blues snake through songs; gospel choirs rise up like tidal waves.
There are big, grinning nods to Beggars Banquet-era Stones, the best of Mellencamp (Clever Creatures) and the juke joint legends of Mississippi like Junior Kimbrough and R.L. Burnside (Black Leaf and No Prosecution If We Bail). Of course, its all filtered through that particular, magical Cave Singers formula: Pete Quirks reedy, behind-the-beat delivery and existential wordplay, Derek Fudescos lyrical guitar runs and drummer Marty Lunds no nonsense rhythms.1.Gifts and the Raft

Like WolvesRochester, NY's LIKE WOLVES have been slugging it out for three years now. After 2 self-released 7s, as well as a split 7 with Hex labelmates OAK AND BONE (on Barbarossa Records), they are ready to drop their debut LP. This album is 9 slices of raw and raging punk, full of wild, nervous energy, and more than a few nods to the angular garage-y sounds of groups like Hot Snakes and Drive Like Jehu. A group of live wires coming unhinged, but still crafty and calculated in their approach. Recorded live at Moresound Studio in Syracuse, NY and in time for a national tour to present the new jams.Golden Year

I Blame YouBrooklyn, NY's Obits is made up of Rick Froberg, Sohrab Habibion, Greg Simpson, and Scott Gursky. They released their first single, One Cross Apiece b/w Put It in Writing in December of '08 on their own Stint Records label and did some touring with the Constantines and The Night Marchers. Produced by G. Sanoff, E. Janney and Obits, I Blame You is the band's debut full-length album.
We're not into innovation as a band, says Froberg, who's already done his fair share of innovating with Drive Like Jehu and Hot Snakes. I think innovation is overrated and an overestimated quality. Anything that's going to be original is going to happen without your control. Things that make your band sound like you, are things you wouldn't be able to change anyway. We just go ahead and play the stuff we like, and we don't worry about originality per se, because that takes care of itself.1. Widow of My Dreams

Black Moon SpellKing Tuff's new record is called Black Moon Spell.
It was produced and recorded by Bobby Harlow at Studio B in Los Angeles, California,
in the hot winter of 2014.
No one involved was prepared to make a record, but an invisible hand pushed them
to do it. Perhaps it was God or that special someone we all know and love called The
God and The Devil actually have very similar interests. They both love electric guitars
and they both want you to listen to Black Moon Spell and freak the fuck out.
There were many strange occurrences during the recording session- Dracula landlords,
flashes of mysterious light, haunted microphones, songs that mixed themselves,
demonic vortexes swirling in coffee cups, etc.
Under the Black Moon Spell you may experience euphoria, demented visions, wet
dreams, bouts of backwards laughter, and dazed confusion resulting in primordial
Fire played a very important role in the making of this album. King Tuff loves fire.
For some reason, no one can really explain how the Black Moon Spell came to be.
It just appeared one day and demanded heavy rock music and meatball subs.
Backwards messages may be found on this record.
Los Angeles, full of its screaming coyotes and creeping helicopters, surely slathered
its sexy, twisted, hairy, polluted spirit all over Black Moon Spell. The Sunset Strip
shat itself when it heard all these guitar solos.
Can you feel the Black Moon Spell creeping up the back of yr neck yet?
King Tuff would prefer not to tell you the full story of making this record because
its long and crazy and you wouldn't believe him anyway. Also, I am King Tuff.
Magic Jake, who played bass and is beautiful like sunshine, would like to take this
moment to give you a hug and invite you to a tanning party on a beach of your choice.
Old Gary, who plays drums and has the most glorious cackle, would like to take this
moment to crack a cold one with you and invite you to watch the old ballgame with

Night fell on Studio B. A Tarot card leapt from the deck and said, "No human
judgement is of any value here." King Tuff agreed.
Sub Pop first discovered King Tuff curled up in his palace in Vermont. It was basically
a shit hut made of moss, mud, and glimmering stones hidden near the graveyard,
and it was guarded by beautiful wild bullfrogs with silver fangs and baseball bats.
Punx, Squares, Skaters, Farmers, Bartenders, Grandparents, Stoners, Carpenters,
Hobos, Heshers, Babes, Babies, Plumbers, Strippers, Art Teachers, Teenagers, Townies,

Teeth DreamsIn 2014, the Hold Steady release their sixth LP Teeth Dreams, nearly four years after the Brooklyn band's previous full-length album, 2010's Heaven Is Whenever. It's the longest gap between albums in the rock band's decade-plus career. [The recording process] may have dragged out a bit this time, singer Craig Finn tells Rolling Stone. But I think it's all for the best.
Teeth Dreams was recorded over the past two years in Brooklyn and Franklin, Tenn. and marks a new beginning for the Hold Steady: it's their first album recorded with longtime touring guitarist Steve Selvidge, who joined the band on the road following the 2010 departure of multi-instrumentalist Franz Nicolay. It was exciting again, says guitarist Tad Kubler. There was a newness to this album that I hadn't felt in awhile.
The new tracks find the band leaning heavy on distortion and snaking guitar licks - Finn's favorite of the batch is On With the Business, a pummeling blast of electric guitar and vocal delay that finds the notoriously sharp-eyed vocalist appraising a city heavy on weak handshakes and beautiful kitchens. On The Ambassador, one of the album's rare moments of serenity, Finn's details a temporary holding cell of a shack-up in Michigan with hot and glistening nights and halls that smelled like burning hair. And the band's first single, I Hope This Whole Thing Didn't Frighten You (streaming below) is a barreling Foo Fighters-style melodic rocker, with rapid-fire vocals spilling from Finn as drummer Bobby Drake swings beneath.
He says the band has drummed up their biggest-sounding, most rock-oriented album to date. We were looking to make a big rock record, he admits. Maybe it's less wild but in some ways that makes it a bigger record."

Stoned Age Man180 Gram Audiophile Pressed At RTI
From The Original Master Tapes
Faithful Reproduction Of The Original Artwork
Rooted in the steamy backroads of Texas and deep-fried at a Memphis recording studio, Joseph's Stoned Age Man was served up like a sizzling hot rattlesnake appetizer slathered in fuzz-blooz grease in 1969. Legend has it that the titles of eight of the album's nine songs came before they were written on the spot, which speaks volumes for the talents of Joseph (aka, Joseph Longeria) - who A&R man Steve Tyrell signed to Scepter Records after witnessing the Lone Star State bluesman gig with B.B. King and T-Bone Burnett. Brandishing his guitar like a Cro-Magnon's club, Joseph mixes his fuzzy licks with meat-grinder vocals as he loudly ruminates of fattened snakes, fish heads, mountains, cavemen and gumbo in the maddest peyote hallucination Alley Oop never had. Long revered among collectors, this fine slab o' rock gets its first-ever reissue from the original masters, pressed at RTI onto 180 grams of cold hard vinyl that'll rip your turntable from its hinges.1.
