3 Songs: On Repeat

Mudhoney – “I Like It Small” (The fuzz-punk grunge forefathers return with Vanishing Point, their ninth album in 25 years, out today via Sub Pop.  This roaring first single features honky-tonk piano jabs, vintage organs, singer Mark Arm’s Iggy Pop-like swagger and a fun, sing-along chorus that proves that they can rock just as hard as ever.)

Louder Than Bombs – “No News Is Good News” (The Detroit-based punk rock band released their excellent new album What Resonates this week on South Division Records.  Their throwback style blends the gritty heaviness of Hot Water Music with the super-catchy melodies of Saves The Day for a nostalgia-laced sound that will resonate with you for sure!)

Pick A Piper – “All Her Colours” (The collaborative synth-driven and percussion-heavy project led by Caribou drummer Brad Weber released their self-titled debut this week via Mint records.  The colorful and off-kilter album was mixed by John Schmersal of Enon and Brainiac fame, who also provides the vocals for the poly-rhythmic first single, here.  Other guest vocalists include Ryan McPhun of Ruby Suns and Raphaelle Standell-Preston of Braids.)
