Welcome back everybody! We have a great #WeirdWednesday in store for you this week. If you’re new to the party, today is the day we share some material that you may not find on your typical “hardcore blog.” So, before we begin, let us forewarn you: THERE ARE NO BREAKDOWNS IN TODAY’S MUSIC.
After listening to today’s batch of songs, be sure to tweet us at @thenoise and let us know which ones you enjoyed the most.
See you next week!
Chumped – “Eleanor”
Listen everyone, you are going to get this song stuck in your head. Now, it really isn’t that big of a deal. But just so you know, once those punchy up-beat drums kick in, you’re a goner. Creating their own version of self-proclaimed “bummer punk” which, according to their Facebook page, is influenced by “sandwiches” and managed by “Satan,” Brooklyn’s own Chumped may be our next power pop guilty pleasure.
The Love Junkies – “Television”
Everybody, this is the Love Junkies and they are from Australia. Be sure to say hi and make friends because you guys are going to be seeing a lot of these dudes in the future. Why is that you ask? Well, because their form of Aussie alternative rock is so damn good, that’s why. Combining elements of the Vines and Cage the Elephant, tracks like “Television” and “Maybelene” are definitely songs you need more of in your life.
Aeges – “Crazy” (Gnarls Barkley Cover)
Generally when featuring a new band, we try to avoid posting them performing a cover song. However, with Aeges, their Gnarls Barkley cover of “Crazy” was way too good to pass up. Also, the fact that they completely take this song and morph it into their own Muse-like version, is quite impressive. With that said, if you’re as intrigued as we were in hearing Aeges’ own original music, be sure to take a listen to their Queens of the Stone Age-like track, “Parasite.”
The Moms – “Miss America”
Now, what’s better than a post-punk band singing about America? Maybe a symbolic music video accompanying that post-punk band as they rescue Miss America from being tortured by Uncle Sam? Yeah, that’s the ticket. If you can’t get enough of “Miss America” and want more from this New Jersey trio, The Moms, go pick up their debut full-length, Buy American.
Dead Leaves – “I Was Once An Extrovert”
Are you having a stressful day? Well no fear, Dead Leaves has your back. Starting out with a wavy guitar intro and working its way into an up-tempo but still chill chorus, “I Was Once An Extrovert” is exactly what you’ll need to wind down after a rough day. For fans of the Cleveland natives’ emo-esque style, head to their bandcamp page and listen to Amend Regret as many times as humanly possible.
