New God's - What Did I Say?

Genre: punk, grunge, garage
Year: 2014

1.What Did I Say?
2.American Pleather
3.Where Do I Go From Here?

The actor looks straight in the camera. His eyes squint with the faintest semblance of resolution...and insanity. The whole film has built up to this.....his revenge. "What Did I Say," the titular track of Seattle's New Gods latest effort, begins blaring as the scene unfolds. Whether it be the external attack on the powers that be, or the internal struggle against constriction of the mind, "What Did I Say" provides the perfect background music to your mutiny.

1. Sound Waves
2. The Force Is Strong
3. That Feeling
4. I Don't Care
5. This Town

I want my next meal cooked by the cast of Joplin MO rockers: Flanders. I have reason to believe they are all very insightful and accurate chefs. The five songs on their debut EP "Holding On" is a testament to their finesse with ingredients. "Holding On" takes the most meltable elements of rock and punk to make a sound crafted with intentional pop sensibility injections and presented with the most earnest struggles and energy of hardcore. It's a mouthful of influence but it is executed seamlessly and will leave your hair blown back by it's raging amount of spirit.  Check out the links above to enjoy some wonderful music nutrition.
