The Pack A.D.



Sounds Like: Vancouver duo of garage ladypunks’ stellar tits-to-the-wall blues rock just gets better and better as they ease up on pop and double down on thrash snarl.

Free Association: Only Marnie Stern and Alison Mosshart can keep up with these two.

For Fans Of: Sleater-Kinney + Black Keys, Japandroids, 
turning attitude into art.


Glowing Mouth

(Kill Rock Stars)

Sounds Like: The Brooklyn, N.Y., quintet’s debut is astounding in its maturity and beauty; Kyle Wilson’s lead singing is gorgeous and the moody, haunting grooves will hook you.

Free Association: Their late-September Kung Fu Necktie date should not be missed; it’ll be killer.

For Fans Of: Wild Beasts x Arcade Fire, sad Beck, slow burn spaceouts, buzz bands.



(Fat Possum)

Sounds Like: The L.A. duo of Hodgy Beats and Left Brain (Odd Future freaks) turn it out on their second, a smartly-
produced, sick collection of mildly 
disturbing ghetto swag.

Free Association: Their L.A. feels like Dre & Snoop’s: pimp, hazy and straight-up scary.

For Fans Of: Earl Sweatshirt, ballin’ skateboarding punk-ass rhyme-slingers.

Jay-Z and Kanye West

“I've seen Milagres live a few times, and have always been impressed. A quick correction, though: Glowing Mouth isn't Milagres' debut album. (They released an EP and LP under their previous band name, The Secret Life of Sofia.) That's why they sound mature!”
