At first, Roanoke, VA's ETERNAL SUMMERS received comparisons to a barrage of 80s & 90s era lo-fi indie bands. With Correct Behavior, released last year on Kanine Records, the band let go of the things that once defined them, their status as a duo, their attachment to a specific instrument, and their need to remain insular, to create their most realized album yet. Once lovingly labeled as "dream-punk," ETERNAL SUMMERS have blasted off into outer space with a full sound that reflects their eclectic tastes and influences while holding onto their angsty lyrics, strong hooks, power and volume. The trio is also working on a new album, which you can help them release at their Pledge Music page and get a taste of their continuously evolving sound. Scottish indie-punk rockers PAWS released one of our favorite records last year - Cokefloat, out on Fat Cat Records. The trio ripped out hearts and fried brains at SXSW this past March with over a dozen sets of their gritty but powerful poppy punk that's as colorful and jubilant as it is refreshingly pissed-off. In a live setting the band is all claws and teeth, engaging onlookers with their spontaneous but raw energy that'll leave fans almost as tired and sweaty as the band itself. Chicago three-piece POST CHILD hit the Bottle tonight with their grungey, stomping rock that punches and stabs and swallows listeners whole. The trio is working on recording a full-length, which will hopefully be out later this year - we're betting it's gonna knock all the squares on their asses.
