3 Songs: On Repeat

Street Stains – “The Party” (Street Stains is the long-gestating project from Q And Not U’s Chris Paul Richards and Pissed Jeans’ Sean McGuinness.  Together they combine quick bursts of straight-forward yet scruffy fuzz-punk with touches of power-pop on their self-titled debut album out now via their Bandcamp page.  Check out the bouncing, snotty standout track here with its biting social commentary on name-dropping, mind-numbing party conversations.)

Sleater-Kinney – “Surface Envy (Live In Paris)” (The trio follows up last year’s triumphant return - including new album and tour - with the release of Live In Paris, their first official live album, out today via Sub Pop.  The blazing thirteen track album was recorded March 20th, 2015 in Paris at the historic La Cigale venue and represents their heralded discography well, including the anthemic and surging standout single from last year’s No Cities To Love, heard here.)

Rubblebucket – “Donna” (The Brooklyn art-poppers recently released a new EP titled, If U C My Enemies and the 4-song EP is yet another reminder of their seemingly effortless ability to create party-starting blasts of bright, quirky horn-filled melodies and infectiously danceable rhythms.  Check out the skronking horns and disco-tinged flickering guitars and sing-along hooks of the standout single heard here.)
