Lake Kwan Do - Recordings

The few who know me know that I tend toward music that has no real categorization, and sometimes even less information. On occasion we get submissions of this kind and I instantly take to them. One such submission is by Lake Kwan Do, in the form the their EP "Recordings".

They released one of the best records last year and now it seems New London Garage rockers Straight To VHS have struck again. With the release of “Weekend, Weekend, Weekend” the Wailing City three piece have solidified themselves as a band not to mess with.

Chris Modeen - Dinosaurio

Chris Modeen makes odd folk music with a real pop edge. His home recorded "Dinosaurio" is mainly acoustic guitar and various takes of his vocals. He has a Kev MF King, or Modest Mouse vibe, but with a darker vocal sense.

Ledges - EP_1


Ledges kick into their EP_1 with "Somebody's Number", a super poppy and fuzzy summer tune. Massive fuzz tone in this with great vocals and killer drums. Reminiscent of High Pop or Ovlov.

"Another Day" is a bass led song with really pretty guitar chiming in intermittently. A more urgent, perhaps emo vibe to this song, without falling too heavily into that or any specific genre. "Death Ray Run" closes out this brief EP with more upbeat pop vibes. Serious grooves in the breakdown of this song. These guys definitely have a knack for composing parts and putting them together. This is a very strong intro to this band, who we hope is currently making some more tunes for our ears!
