[LISTEN] PYPY – PAGAN DAY

pypy

PyPy is a “supergroup” formed by members of CPC Gangbangs, Red Mass and Duchess Says. Their 7-track album ‘Pagan Day’ is a non-stop blistering psych-punk freakout. The pace ranges from driving hardcore through dance punk to slowcore grind, but at all times it is both sinister and enticing. A great record.

[LISTEN] COWARDS – New Country

cowards

It would be easy to dismiss Cowards as just another lo-fi punk band from Vancouver. First of all, they’re not really punk, more like noise rock with a goth edge. Furthermore, listening to their album ‘World Champions in Male Chastity’ you get the sense there is some inspired madness beneath the sneering surface. This probably won’t be the last time I talk about them….

Vancouver’s Anchoress go all hardcore “For a Soft Heart”. It’s not simple punk, though — there’s an interesting song structure and some metal chugging.

catholic girls

Get your weekend going with Calgary’s Catholic Girls. Their EP ‘Sheila Joined a Cult` is a crazy blast of goth punk wave. It`s kinda like having Le Tigre over for a sleepover and watching cheesy sci fi movies.

[LISTEN] BAM THWOK – LETHARGY

bam thwok

They took their name from a Pixies song and they lift sound bites from “The Wedding Singer”, so it should come as no surprise that Bam Thwok brings back those angst-driven sounds of ’90′s grunge/punk. “Lethargy” starts off as a mournful dirge and ends up in an anguished scream. Hey, it’s Monday, no point in getting too happy. (Don’t mind me, I actually like these guys.)
