Negative Scanner
"Negative Scanner
"
mp3

Formed in 2012 by lead singer and guitarist Rebecca Valeriano-Flores, Negative Scanner, is modern take on dark late '70's punk. Last year the band release two singles, but on their self-titled debut LP they carve out fierce sound steeped in plotting guitar and powerful lyrics. The album launches with the forceful "Ivy League" which find Flores falling somewhere between early Siouxsie Sioux and Johnny Rotten. It's magnetic and repulsive all at once.The entire album is relentless, clocking under 30 minutes, but pounds the listener with blissful aggression with every note. The highlight of the album has to be the lead single, "Would You Rather", which paints a picture of the sluggish journey we all seem to be on at times. Negative Scanner's self-titled debut album was released by Trouble In Mind Records on July 10th.

It was almost a year ago to the day the we share the debut EP from Gehring Miller (aka Villa Coola). Late last month Miller, along with Sip City Records, released his first full-length as Villa Coola. The album continues Miller's exploration of alt-folk and falsetto that is reminiscent of the dream-like acoustic moments of Dinosaur Jr.

Matias Anon has released the first song, "Betty Boozer", from his forthcoming demo EP. The track is a clearly in demo mode, but has a gritty garage feel that is interesting. Anon has a unique vocal delivery that makes me want to hear the full EP.
