The Ehems bask in fuzz on "Eh Eh Hem," play Berlin 2.6

New York trio the Ehems carefully thread the needle between indie and garage on “Eh Eh Hem,” gleefully demonstrating their love of fuzz and Kodak film in the track’s visual component. Beginning on a gainful riff and concluding with a vague, repeating mantra that continues throughout the song’s two and a half minute runtime, the three person outfit drive and groove, leaving room for muted, overdriven instrumental segues. No bells and whistles to be found, their focus on creating energetic rock highlights the band’s desire to embody the city’s history of fervent, guitar-centric music, as evidenced by their recently released VHS live-show compilation. Give it a spin below, and head out to Berlin on February 6th for their first show of the new decade.

   

Twins Peaks “Cawfee” and “St. Vulgar St.”

Twin Peaks have release two lyric video for the tracks, “Cawfee” and “St. Vulgar St.” from their forthcoming 7” which is being released via Grand Jury on February 14th.

Gal Gun "Beauty Community"

Garage Rock group Gal Gun kicked off 2020 by releasing a new EP called “Beauty Community”. This is the first new music from the group since 2018’s Special Music of Emotion.

Our favorite track on first listen is the catchy and fun closer, “Pizza Community”.

   

Keep calm with Dropper's garage rock, see them at Rough Trade 1.15

Garage rock four piece Dropper’s debut EP is a sun-drenched, nonchalant release, marching forward at an easygoing pace, bright guitar work and a muted-yet-emotional vocal performances in hand. Even during the release’s most heated moments, such as the shredding breakdowns on “$2 Beer,” Dropper manages to keep their sound centered and energetic, endowing their self-titled effort with an atmosphere that is engaging, never cacophonous. It’s a difficult task to produce guitar-driven rock that spirals outwards as a means of creating a compelling listen, but Dropper are confident keeping things calmly focused; listen to it below, and see the band perform at Rough Trade on January 15th, opening for THICK. —Connor Beckett McInerney
