LOST BALLOONS

Jeff Burke is a Texan musician who plays in absolutely nasty garage-punk bands like the Marked Men and Radioactivity. Yusuke Okada is a Japanese musician who plays in the band Suspicious Beasts. Together, the two of them have a sort of global side-project duo called Lost Balloons. Their second album and debut for Dirtnap Records, Hey Summer”, will be out June 16th.

Radiator Hospital

We are a rock band of rockers who love to rock. We also can be just one person who is much quieter but still loves to rock.

DARK THOUGHTS

With 10 of 12 tracks coming in under two minutes and the band making minimal use of chords, you could easily be misled into thinking you've heard this album thousands of times before. But actually, you haven't.

Dark Thoughts finds some separation from the pack that’s linked above by virtue of being effectively straightforward in a genre that tends to grow stagnant whenever anyone’s foolish enough to attempt the feat. So many bands have tried and failed miserably at songs that are frequently (and unfairly) categorized as Ramones-core and while Dark Thoughts certainly embraces an archetype, it does so with an infallible mixture of venom and pure feeling.

Every song on Dark Thoughts would be a worthy single but the record functions its own standalone entity as well; Dark Thoughts is a sublime piece of insanely well-informed genre work that skews as close to Fix My Brain as it does Rocket to Russia.
