Tough Age - Garage Pop Music Video "Me in Glue", Junction City 10.19

Tough Age are a power pop trio on Mint Records spending most of their time in Toronto. They have a rather lengthy discography available on their bandcamp page which includes their latest release “Shame”. Earlier this year they released a video for the single “Me in Glue”. This tune is a catchy lo-fi rocker accompanied by a music video which shows the singer of the group having just a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. The guitar licks sound happy though! Tough Age will be playing a huge show at Junction City Music Hall on Saturday October 19th with the legendary BA Johnston and pop punk extraordinaire’s First Base. – Kris Gies

Glutenhead - Debut Experimental Folk Album "Glugen Frau"

Brand new experimental folk rock group Glutenhead released their debut album “Glugen Frau” last month. The band explains the history of the album title:

“The phrase Glugen Frau first came up in my life innocuously, when I was eighteen and in Berlin. In a moment of manic while ordering at a restaurant, realizing I didn’t know any german, I asked for the food to be “Glugen Frau.” 5 years later, it was time to look up what it meant.”

The rough translation is "Glimmering Woman” You can expect it all on this album as you can tell from the track “how it feels” which contains a variety of influences. Give ‘er a spin and see what you can gather from Glutenhead. – Kris Gies
