Weakened Friends, Sidney Gish, Palehound, Pile, Potty Mouth, Fucko, Vundabar
Here's some rock/punk stuff from the last few months. I love the PUP record but I can get finding it jokey.
I know Vundabar and Pile are Boston bands and I believe Potty Mouth started there (but are in Los Angeles now? Can't remember) so I'm going to guess it's Boston bands
That's a bingo, they've all been from the area at some point, and you're also right that Potty Mouth moved to LA.
Their new record is a little too... sleepy for me I think. But have you listened to Big Thief? Their first album "Masterpiece" is just amazing. Lots of energy.
An album a year plus EP's for a very long time, so a lot to get into. I've never really dug into them, even though French Disko is one of my all time favourite songs.
Pitchfork just posted some live videos and that's the song that grabbed me.
Man, what a show. Conor and Phoebe should do more stuff together after seeing them tonight. What an amazingly emotional show
