3 Songs: On Repeat – featuring an exclusive stream from Fractal Control

Fractal Control – “Starved For Change” (Hailing from Youngstown, Ohio, the politically-minded instrumental metalcore band led by Mike Louttit recently released their very promising debut album, Disconnection Equals Freedom.  The album was inspired by Peter Joseph’s film, Zeitgeist: The Movie and deals with corruption and justice and is led by the dynamic standout track heard here.  It trades off between effortless moments of complex yet pummeling prog-rock fuelled force and highly-melodic sections that soar with fancy, fluid fretwork for an engaging and unique sound that recalls like-minded acts Animals As Leaders and Scale The Summit.) 

My Goodness – “Young Turks” (The Seattle garage rock trio takes on Rod Stewart’s 80’s classic with all of their visceral heavy blues-rock grooves and howling vocals intact.  The band which consists of vocalist/guitarist Joel Schneider and drummer Andy Lum recently recruited the Blood Brothers’ Cody Votolato to play bass.  They also recently released their stunning debut album Shiver + Shake which is led by the outstanding single, “Cold Feet Killer” and was produced by the late, legendary Seattle producer Rick Parashar, who has also produced for Pearl Jam and Temple Of The Dog among others.)

Foo Fighters – “The Feast And The Famine” (To coincide with the HBO mini-series of the same name, in which they recorded in 8 different musically-rich U.S. cities, the Foo Fighters have recently released their eighth and most recent studio album, Sonic Highways out now via Roswell/RCA Records.  One of the sessions and episodes focused on D.C.’s historic punk scene and Inner Ear Studios.  The result is the standout single heard here - a signature arena-worthy anthem highlighted by its choppy offbeat rhythm and wiry guitar tone that was inspired by area punk legends Fugazi and Jawbox.)
