Hailing from Calgary is the exciting duo Miesha & The Spanksw, who are definitely delivering a high dose of garage rock the way it should be executed. Having worked with drummer and producer Danny Farrant of The Buzzcocks on their ‘Stranger’ EP back in 2016, the Canadian outfit are set to release their forthcoming album ‘Girls Girls Girls’ this year. One of the songs taken from the new record is their hard rocking track ‘Atmosphere’. Raw to the core, flaring guitar riffs, coinciding with power drumming is the backbone to pop-style stadium chanting hooks and early stage love lyrics.
Brooklyn band QWAM have released their new EP ‘Feed Me’. Comprised of five cuts orchestrated during late night NYC excursions, high-octane rhythms sound off like sirens in the distance as singer Felicia Lobo’s ‘tell it like it is’ delivery is aided by rapid fire guitars, thunderous drumming and interestingly enough, sing-along choruses. Incorporating the sound of classic NYC punk, this is a soundtrack to those gritty nights in a dark venue where the music is loud and being who you are is nothing short of celebrated.

The B-side tune ‘Bodies’ slows down the pace slighlty as hazy riffs are coupled by mellow vocals.

What has culminated as an aritst is an interesting mix of psych meets pop meets garage rock with an Americana sensibility that literally sounds like an entity on to itself.
