3 Songs: On Repeat

The Gentle Hits – “Walk Out” (The Phoenix folk-rock trio features former members of Dear And The Headlights and their self-titled debut album is out today via Porch Party Records.  Their rustic brand of folk-leaning indie rock is led by vocalist/guitarist Ian Metzger’s distinctly aching vocal style that is matched by the emotionally-charged ruminations on life, love and loss.  Basically, fans of DATH will not be disappointed!)

Wolf People – “Night Witch” (The British band recently released their third album, Ruins via Jagjaguwar.  The excellent new album shows the band branching out with hints of hip-hop inspiration in their thunderous beats and elements of shoegaze blended into their fuzzed-out guitar freakouts; added to their already heavy, blues and folk-soaked brand of psych-rock.)    

Mike Watt – “Against The ‘70s (Live)” (In 1995, the punk rock pioneer and former bassist of The Minutemen and fIREHOSE released his first solo album, Ball-hog or Tugboat? via Columbia Records.  For each eclectic track, he assembled a different lineup culled from an all-star cast of 90’s alt-rock stars and 80’s punk friends – including members of Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Beastie Boys, Sonic Youth, that dog. and Dinosaur Jr. among others - to bring his vision to life yet it was his warped sense of humor and stunning bass playing that held the spotlight.  Out now on Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings, is the ring speil tour ’95 live album that was recorded during his legendary tour stop at the Metro in Chicago in May of 1995 along with a backing band that featured Eddie Vedder, Dave Grohl, Pat Smear, and William Goldsmith.)
