Quantcast

zomby-cover-125Gather 'round boils and ghouls! The 1998 Australia-only EP from SOUTHERN CULTURE ON THE SKIDS has been expanded to a full album, and is now available right here in the good 'ol US of A. ZOMBIFIED has been rebuilt, remastered, repackaged, and reinvigorated with an additional five songs - just like a sonic Frankenstein (the monster, not the Doctor). A perfect addition to your 2011 Halloween Playlist, SCOTS uses their signature brand of surf-charged rockabilly to pay tribute to the drive-in horror and exploitation films of the past.

IM Cover125As I noted when I first posted news of IMAGINARY MONSTERS, the new EP from THE BIRTHDAY MASSACRE - their 2010 full-length PINS & NEEDLES has not left my playlist since it's release almost a year ago. Rated a in my official review, I should've given in a flat 5 - as it's staying power has been immense. As more artists revisit the EP format to bridge gaps between albums, the prospect of new music from TBM quickly became an object of anticipation.

birthday massacreCanadian Synth-rockers THE BIRTHDAY MASSACRE are back for a fourth round with PINS & NEEDLES (out September 14th via Metropolis Records). Finding just the right balance between the heavy rock guitars and keyboard-driven grooves, if the band had emerged in the late 80's to mid-90's, they'd likely have been lumped somewhere into the vast "industrial" realm.

THE MARSHMALLOW GHOSTS 7"

grave046 100'Tis the season for all things spooky, and this Halloween-themed 7-inch from Chicago's Graveface Records is a welcome addition to the seasonal playlist. The debut from The Marshmallow Ghosts (a project featuring members of The Appleseed Cast, Casket Girls, Dreamend, and Black Moth Super Rainbow), this self-titled vinyl release is more soundscape than song, but something worth checking out.
