SHEER MAG (Philadelphia, US)
Fuck yuppies, fuck slumlords, fuck cops and the rich—make no mistake, this is the message Sheer Mag wants you to hear. It’s coded into their lyrics and built into the young Philadelphia band’s blown-out grooves, which match swaggering soul force with a defiant punk spirit. Sheer Mag might reference 1970s classic rock every time they holler and shred, but their gnarled, whiskey-fueled pop-in-miniature is of a singular breed: There aren’t many contemporary bands you could imagine unironically covering “Sweet Home Alabama” while some bloody-lipped fan stage-dives. Such is the essence of Sheer Mag’s raw power.
“It is the only record of recent times that manages to sound like a mix of a classic Seventies rock record, power pop and an obscure English DIY 7” from the late 70’s. Everything sounds scrappy, fuzzy and scuzzy and it’s all the better for it. “…
THE BURNERS (Amsterdam, NL)
You could not pin The Burners down to one single genre, the core is in the delivery of the music. Every member of the band brings separate flavours to the sound; blues rock schematics wash in with punk that hits with break-beats and crosses over into surf-pop but then waits you up with something deep. It’s a climax geared-up to happen.
SLEEP KIT (Maastricht, NL + Cologne,DE)
Sleep Kit are a three piece band from Maastricht, the Netherlands and Cologne, Germany. Their songs are raw, melancholic, both apathetic and agressive, yet have an intriguing pop quality. Painful pop, mess rock. Their new lp entitled ‘II’ will come out through Big Scary Monsters Recording Company in October.
