ACID DAD
ACID DAD
Conceived at a drag show in Brooklyn in August 2014, Acid Dad has quickly become one of the most talked-about bands in the New York scene. Over the past year, their string of infectious psych-punk singles has earned them nods from the likes of Nylon, The Deli, CMJ, Village Voice, Impose, Hero Mag and more, and has garnered them slots on Gigawatts Festival and Color Me Bushwick. Dingus once described them as "so fucking good," and if you listen to their latest single, "Grim," you'll see why. Between dropping awesome tracks like that one, Acid Dad has made a name for themselves as one of the tightest and most energetic live bands in the Brooklyn scene. The band recently played 6 CMJ shows, including Austin Psych Fest's Levitation showcase at Rough Trade along with Drinks, Mild High Club and Shannon & the Clams. Look out for their debut EP in early 2016.
THE REBEL SET
THE REBEL SET
The Rebel Set are a three piece garage rock group from Phoenix and when I say "garage" rock band, I'm not talking about the recent trend of noisy lo-fi music. These guys are a real "garage" rock band. The trio takes from early sixties punk, surf, and psych. The guitar kicks ass, the songs are even dirtier, and the production sounds like that of an old sixties garage punk 45. Standout tracks include, "Poison Arrow", a dark brooding garage cut with an extremely catchy verse, "Martian", with guitar that harkens back to Apache, and an eerie theramin intro, "Birds and Bees", a 60's punk throwback that is impossible not to thrash to, and "Muckraker", which sounds like an early Iggy Pop song. Overall, this album rules and these guys should be proud for creating something new and awesome out of something old and awesome.
