“These NJ gents have been at it for a while and should be more well known than they are. The songs are good, occasionally very good, as in the case of these two songs.”

Thanks to our friends at The Big Takeover for hosting the premiere of “Dirty Looks,” the lead track from the new Stuyvesant Aardvark single. Click here, and then there, to hear it!
Pretty sure that “taut, chunky rhythm, a catchy melody, and soaring vocals that will make you want to jump around and air guitar like a damn fool” is the best description of Stuyvesant’s music that we’ve ever read.

The Stuyvesant “Aardvark” single is available for preorder now, with a release date of November 8, 2019.
The single is available in all digital formats, as well as a limited-edition lathe-cut 7”. Limited to 40 copies, the artwork was designed by former Stuyvesant bass player Brian Musikoff, with the artwork intended to be the first in a series of 7” releases with the band, each resembling the old “Safari cards” of the 1970s. The record was recorded at Moonlight Mile studios in Hoboken, NJ, with longtime Stuyvesant engineer Mike Moebius at the knobs.

Thanks to Jim Testa of the long-running Jersey Beat zine for premiering the “Drac / Witch” 7” from Sink Tapes. Jim says the single floats “somewhere between eighties jangle-pop and nineties slacker-rock, recalling the poppier side of Yo La Tengo.” Flattery will get you everywhere, Jim.

Our disgust with the current healthcare system in America knows no bounds. Even more so when we learned the sad news that New York Dolls guitarist Sylvain Sylvain is suffering from cancer, and is seeking help from friends and fans via GoFundMe.
Our mutual disillusionment – and appreciation for the legends that created the music we love – caused us to team up with our friends at Pyrrhic Victory Recordings to release a dynamite cover of the Dolls’ “Personality Crisis,” with every penny raised from sales donated directly to Sylvain’s GoFundMe.

I’m on a big “music media is driven by publicists and small bands don’t have access” kick lately, though, and as a result I think that – even though some of the records I heard and loved this year probably reached my ears due to those very same publicists – it’s worth listing my faves in a place where people can actually read them. So:

We’re hosting two fundraisers for Justice Democrats where you can contribute to the campaigns of two local progressive congressional candidates and volunteer to help campaign for 24 more nationwide, in the weeks before Election Day.

Dromedary Al waxes philosophical on “Gondola” by Melting Hopefuls, the very first song we ever released, by the very first band we ever called “our band.” We’re reissuing the long out-of-print track digitally today, remixed and remastered by Ray Ketchem. It’s free, and it holds up damn well.

Wilfully Obscure reviews d.smith’s groping for luna, vol. 1, stating “Smith manages to brew up a howling, manicured maelstrom on some of Groping’s most assertive slammers, nicely exemplified on “Worst Case Scenario,” and “An Ultimatum.”
