    BRONCHO

    Alternative Rock

    Harkening back to punk rock’s glory days of the 70s, Oklahoma outfit Broncho captures the aggression, DIY authenticity and youthful exhilaration of a bygone era and then drags it by the hair into the Here and Now, creating a fresh sound that’s unlike anything being played today. With echoes of The Replacements, Iggy and the Stooges and The Ramones, Broncho’s exuberant ten song debut Can’t Get Past the Lips is a blisteringly cathartic 20 minute flash of gritty, crunching guitar work supported by an assaultive rhythm section and made whole by songwriter Ryan Lindsey’s aggressive, yelping vocal work.
     
    The collective talent and cumulative experience of all involved with Broncho has resulted in an album that, for all its dirty-dishwater punk roots, is a masterwork of garage/pop simplicity. Speaking of the band’s reference points, Lindsey says “We all love the way those records sound so we naturally went in that direction, as far as fidelity goes. But more than anything, it’s the attitude of an era that I wasn’t around for, but feel a connection with. We didn’t set out to recreate a record from that era, we just took on that message and made it our own.”
     
    Or, as Ford puts it: “It’s not nostalgia, it’s natural.”

  • Bad Weather California

    Bad Weather California

    Alternative Rock

    Bad Weather California are four west coast weirdos making feel-good true-energy rock music out in the desert mountains, a punk band for the new millenia. Raised on the alt music they discovered in Thrasher magazine and gas powered generator shows in the small desert town where they grew up, they have spent the past seven years playing, touring, and searching the floors they slept on for those same feelings and sounds. Looking for them on their dusty old four tracks or alternately threatening to just plain fall apart from them right in front of your eyes at one of their legendary Denver house shows. Chris from BWC explains “as a kid, I used to have this intense nervous feeling when I would go watch punk bands play. Like anything might go down. Like it was unstable. I’m looking for that again. Striving for it”.

  • The Denzels

    The Denzels

    Alternative Rock

    The Denzels do what many cannot: Make Bushwick sound cool. The Brooklyn-based four person group blends surf and garage rock with lyrics bemoaning the struggling 20-something life; catchy tunes, self-deprecating lyrics. It’s really relatable, as demonstrated by their rise in the NYC concert circuit: CMJ last year, and openings for The Cloud Nothings and Howler this spring.

    Their EP name, Easy Tiger, says it all. They do beach rock that’s neither too poppy nor too lo-fi (a hard balance to strike), and is more than just surf guitar chords thrown into indie pop. The easy, breezy acoustic work is topped with moody lyrics about a night of drunken disorderly conduct and opposite-sex mistakes. It’s great for hangovers — the chill melodies soothe, while their true-life stories make you feel less bad about last weekend’s bender.

    Sure, the ode to broke creative types and youth-in-turmoil sentiment aren’t new as far as lyricism goes — what’s up, Morrissey? — but The Denzels aren’t sad sacks, or Brian Wilson wannabes. Their live show is really energetic; none of this sad, slow, fall-asleep-watching beach rock. You’ll be dancing, hard. It’s like if The Strokes went on a bender in California and woke up penniless on the beach. And sang about it. - Mickie Meinhardt for the Byrne Notice

  • Crazy & The Brains

    Crazy & The Brains

    Pop

    Crazy and The Brains are punk, anti-folk, popsters who formed in a garage with a xylophone and an acoustic guitar. They dance around and play louder than punk bands but they don’t have amps. Expect a lot of "Woo Hoo!'s" and "Alright!'s". Play this music at parties. You can find them wheat pasting graffiti and standing in front of the Sidewalk Cafe in the LES Manhattan.

  • Sea Monsters

    Sea Monsters

    Alternative Rock

    Sea Monsters are a self-produced three-piece from Brooklyn, New York that sound like a punk band 60% of the time. Their favorite things are lager, Rockaway waves before 8AM, covers, and unassuming, plant-enhanced basement jamming. They listen to everything and everyone except the people they should probably listen to.
