Loving this duo from Melbourne Australia, Super Wild Horses. You may recall Everett True wrote about them in the magazine last winter. Amy and Hayley (they keep it mysterious- no last names!) play fuzzed out garage-y, primitive pop rock, and as you can see from this video for Golden Town, they are adorable! Their first full length, Fifteen, will be released next week on HoZac records here in the US. If you like bands like The Breeders, Vivian Girls, etc, (and ... Read More

And every band had at least one woman in, it seemed, it was no big deal. It wasn't until the late 1980s when everything went testosterone-mad that the scene became hostile ... Read More
And here, ladies and perhaps gentlemen, is something I know much less about, but is still incredibly awesome.
Check out this new video from Invincible + Waajeed, Detroit Summer/Emergence. First watch analysis? Straight up city summers, sweating the moment you get out the door even though you took a shower 20 minutes ago, wearing as little clothing as possible even though you have more jeans and tshirts than anything else, dresses even though you don't feel dressy, ...
