VIOLENCE CREEPS “If you surfed over to this website on purpose, there’s a strong chance you’re a big fan of gnarly, grotesque punk that eschews sunshine and bubbly love for cracked concrete and slimy hate. Same goes for me, which is why I’m so psyched that Violence Creeps are putting out music.

BILL ORCUTT/CHRIS CORSANO “In the 90s noise band Harry Pussy, Bill Orcutt’s electric guitar playing was bracing, brittle, and singularly brutal. When he returned to recording and releasing music in 2009 after about a decade away, his sound was just as distinctive– but this time it was done with acoustic guitar, making his consistency that much more remarkable.

BEAUTY QUEEN Devastated Desert Rock. KILLER WHALE “Baton Rouge’s Thomas Johnson moved to San Francisco and brought a bountiful sense of creativity with him. Recording as Killer Whale, Johnson crafts psychedelic rock-pop from a mixture of acoustic instruments, electronics, and layered vocals. Johnson already released a new EP, Pink Pacific, earlier this month. One hopes that we’ll be hearing more new music from this inventive singer-songwriter before the year is through.” – The Bay Bridged THE HA The Human Assembly…
