Playlist and commentary by Cole Foster.
Baby Boy – Pile
This amazing Boston band has amazing screaming, chaotic guitar work. And a great message about not growing up. But being a kid at heart. Please check out all of their music for some great post-punk stuff
Colossus – IDLES
This is a great band out of England that has heavy bass riffs and in your face gritty vocals. This song also has an awesome music video.
Diamond Girls – Guerilla Toss
This is a crazy art rock group from Boston. They have a unique rhythm section. Awesome use of cowbells. And wild female vocals. Infused with innovated synths. They really are a melting pot of different genres. They are playing in salt lake at the end of the month as well
Politicians in my Eyes – Death
Considered by some to be the first punk band. Death came out of Detroit back in 1971. They released one EP but disbanded soon after that. One reason because they were very ahead of their time. But I love that they were all African Americans playing a genre that would soon be dominated by white kids.
Elvis is Everywhere – Mojo Nixon
Just a hilarious song about how much some people love Elvis. It’s a religion! Thank ya, ah thank ya very much!
