Ezra Furman & the Harpoons Havin’ “Hard Times In A Terrible Land”

Good God. In his harrowing tale, alone in bad neighborhoods with termites in the floorboards, Ezra Furman’s shredded pleas for the Lord’s mercy remain unheeded. The Harpoons’ dirty bashing goes unanswered. What, is it The Big Kahuna’s day off? Out of town for the National Association of Dieties convention in Scottsdale? Or is it just that this little thumper is too much for even the Big G to handle? A voice, howling naked in the darkness. Good stuff.

Kasey Anderson and The Honkies See The Wrong Light And It’s So Right

I must say I am excited about this release from Kasey Anderson and The Honkies. These southern basement rockers love them some rock and roll, and badly. Except, they are not really southern, unless we’re talking about southern Portland, Oregon maybe, or perhaps the south end of a blood and sweat stained steel guitar. This is the southern rock meets northwest grunge apocalypse with tape echo. The shit is gnarly. That’s high praise. Download and git down low.
