100% guaranteed to rock!
Luke Beetham and Stacy Peck of Pony Time: are they or aren’t they? The question that’s on everyone’s mind will finally be answered on the new Pony Time record Rumours 2: The Rumours Are True. Yes, it’s true.
Their fourth full-length, soon to be released by SS Records, combines Beetham’s crunchy, hum-into-your-hairbrush catchy reverb-drenched bass tones and emotive howl with Peck’s powerful drum beats to create eleven all-out ragers that thrash around as wildly on the record as they do at their sweaty, energetic whirlwind live shows. Pony Time takes the best parts of the garage rock sound and leaves behind the bonehead bro attitude, creating a sound that transcends the genre with pure, heart-swelling energy and the kind of magical chemistry that only exists between bandmates who are friends in real life.
Stacy and Luke met helping a friend move a stereo in 2009, and soon after Stacy became Luke’s electrician apprentice before realizing that what they really wanted to do was start a band together. Peck (who also plays drums in notorious feminist supergroup Childbirth) is an Aries and music video director who enjoys television and giving inanimate plush toys silly voices while Luke is a galactic activation portal Libra who is not only a magician behind the bass, but can also do a surprising number of card tricks.
“Go Find Your Own is a solid record chock-full of energetic, minimalistic songs that’ll make you shake at least some part of your body during your listen.”- Bust

sunday funday!! BURGER RECORDS champs Peach Kelli Pop bring the sugary sunshiney garage-pop to town with pvd’s own garage-rockstarsPyramid and NEUTRINOS — it’s gonna be suuuper we’re psyched really actually very psyched!
-:- Peach Kelli Pop -:-
Peach Kelli Pop originated when Allie Hanlon, originally a drummer, decided to try writing and recording songs in Ottawa, Canada in 2009. Hanlon started out writing not for an audience but for herself. The intimate quality of her bedroom recordings have been maintained to this day. On first listen one will hear high-pitched harmonies and thick layers of trebly guitars but just below the surface lays an evocative darker side to the music that often goes unnoticed.
Peach Kelli Pop is known for her catchy and tongue-in-cheek songs inspired by video games, Chinese food and conspiracy theorists, illustrating not only her playfulness but also her wit and her angst. Hanlon also grapples with more serious topics like the pressures and challenges women face and the weight of love. Some songs feature the sounds and words of frustrated heartache and recognizable sorrows.
Those that spend enough time with Hanlon’s music will grasp its depth –both musically and emotionally. Peach Kelli Pop plays with the type of urgency and immediacy that appeals to an audience with short attention spans. Hanlon fronts Peach Kelli Pop’s energetic live shows on guitar and vocals and is backed by an assembly of female musicians. The live band consists of an additional guitarist, a bassist, a keyboardist and percussionist and a drummer. Hanlon has been playing with all female musicians in recent years because she recalls being inspired by seeing other women play shows as a teen. In the male-dominated music world, it affirmed her own potential for writing and playing music.
In 2015 Peach Kelli Pop released their third full length record. Recorded in Fullerton, CA Peach Kelli Pop 3 is the band’s best work to date!

free show nope not kidding for real
On his new album, DRACULA BOOTS, the legendary Kid Congo Powers returns to the psychedelic jungle with a stripped down, no frills set of volcanic songs. Kid, the premier voodoo guitarist for seminal sexy swampy bands like Gun Club. Nick Cave and The Cramps is a restless aesthete.
He used his earlier solo efforts to explore vocals and mix genres. With DRACULA BOOTS, Kid comes back to his roots as a crackerjack guitarist playing the primitive music that inspired him; the raw sounds of garage and early Chicano rock. It only made sense to record such glittering gems as Thee Midniters “I Found A Peanut” and Bo Diddley’s Funky Fly in a high school gymnasium. He did this in a Midwest town called Harveyville with his nefarious Pink Monkey Birds.
Bassist Kiki Solis from El Paso,TX. and Drummer Ron Miller from Macon,Ga. provided the southern soul sauce needed to fuel the engine of the rhythm train. Recording on a stage using the old PA system created a natural reverb, summoning the magic of a bygone prom interrupted by a juvenile delinquent rumble.
The original songs on DRACULA BOOTS go from loud, fuzzy biker rock (Hitchhiking) to a greasy rump shaker groove (Bobo Boogie), from a scary movie soundtrack (La Llarona) to The Meters having an acid flashback (Black Santa). So sink your teeth into this hunk of wax and waste no time strapping on your DRACULA BOOTS. You will dance your way from the cradle to the grave, and beyond.

Memphis // Goner Recs
On the tail of their excellent breakout 2nd LP “Midnight Passenger” on Goner Records, we have a brand new batch of bruisers from Ex-Cult, the Memphis-based punk cyclone that no doubt has laid waste to a town near you recently. Chris Shaw lends a sneering, spitting toughness to the proceedings while the band flays riffs in loose, hairy mosh inducing menace behind him, touching on post-punk, psych sprawl, and early 80s hardcore while remaining beholden to none. They have the power to convert even the most jaded and bored concertgoer into a sweaty mess in the pit, I’ve seen it first hand… punks, scene rats, skaters, skinheads, hardcore kids, druggies – so many disparate groups dig this band it’s like an MRR cartoon waiting to happen. This too-short collection of adrenal-enhancers are road warriors already – the title track’s chants of “trou-ble-finds-me” immediately transports me back to their packed and stanky show at The Smell every time I put the record on – the only problem with this sterling batch of sluggers is that it’s over too quick. – Matt Jones, Castle Face Records

https://simonjoyner.bandcamp.com/ Simon Joyner is
Simon Joyner is a renowned American singer-songwriter who first came to prominence during the Lo-Fi movement of the early 90’s alongside contemporaries mining similar territory, like Will Oldham, Peter Jefferies, the Mountain Goats, Smog, and Alastair Galbraith. Joyner was championed early by the late British DJ, John Peel, who famously played Joyner’s 1994 LP, “The Cowardly Traveller Pays His Toll”, start to finish on one of his BBC programs, initially making Joyner more well known overseas than in his own country. Considered a forefather of the Omaha music scene, he’s been releasing critically acclaimed albums on various independent labels every few years for over two decades. He keeps a low profile and tours only occasionally, spending most of his time working and raising a family, allowing writing and music to remain an artistic outlet rather than an occupation.
“Grass, Branch & Bone” is Joyner’s thirteenth proper album and a sonic departure from 2012’s “Ghosts”. While his last record was a double album of dark, dissonant songs confronting death and loss in the vein of Neil Young’s “Tonight’s the Night”, this new album is sparse by comparison, running with the likes of other singer-songwriter outcast aftermath albums like Dylan’s “John Wesley Harding”, Gene Clark’s “White Light”, David Blue’s “Stories”, Jerry Jeff Walker’s “Five Years Gone”, Townes Van Zandt’s “Our Mother the Mountain” and Cohen’s “Recent Songs”. It’s a natural progression, after a funeral we always take stock and reflect on our own life. “Grass, Branch & Bone” is a song cycle of short stories about time and memory, full of people you’ve known and people you’ve been.
