Top 5 Albums/EP’s That DONT Suck [JUNE 2017]

a1329878579_10Local Programming – Seymour Glass
Track 2 is kind of lousy, but all of the other songs are goddamn incredible. I’ve been driving myself crazy trying to figure out what this reminds me of. I think it’s just cuz he sings like a guy from a band a few years back called Forming. I’m almost convinced it’s the same guy. It could be. Ok I’m just going to officially proclaim that it is most definitely the same guy. They’re the same person. Please don’t fact-check this.    Listen on Bandcamp

Scrappy punk outfit from my home town, so you know I gotta champion this. I’m hearing some good old fashion ramonesy-punk here and also I wanna say some Newfie/Irish bullshit of some sort. I don’t know if that was intentional but it’s working for me. I will be in attendance at the next show.    Listen on Bandcamp or Spotify

Awww yeah this is smoo-ooth baby. Beautiful live studio sessions from this soulful rock outfit from LA. This is like close-your-eyes-and-bob-your-head-back-and-forth-with-a-slight-pout-on-your-lips music. Hopefully while your special someone is rubbing against you on a hot summer night in New Orleans. What the hell am I even talking about? I mean in general, all of the time, not just right now.    Listen on Bandcamp

These are nice dramatic folk-punk tunes from Atlanta. I love it when really cool bands come from the south that aren’t so stereotypically southern. Album cover is reminiscent of Frame & Canvas by Braid. The music is not. By now you should be able to tell, exactly what this sounds like. In case there was any confusion, It’s awesome.    Listen on Bandcamp

I used to work with a woman named Yulia. She was from Belarus. Nice lady. Track 4, Amos, might be my favorite song for June. It’s so phat and phunky. On the cover there’s a guy with his face blurred out drinking what appears to be a bottle of Fireball. You can interpret that however you want. Oh yeah, the music.. It’s phat and phunky guys!    Listen on Bandcamp
