Get Dead – Honesty Lives Elsewhere
Get Dead is a punk band from California. I couldn’t believe it when I heard that this album was written and recorded in only one month. It probably had something to do with the friends they had help. We’re talking about friends that are members of NOFX, Lagwagon, and toyGuitar. Pretty good company! Here is a pretty good song called “Dyin’ Is Thirsty Work”
The Novaks – EAGER POWER GENTLE FURY
The boyz from The Rock are back with a new studio album after a seven year hiatus. Believe me when I tell you, it’s always worth the wait for new material from this Canadian four piece. My favorite song, “Beat Love Down”, has the combination of guitars and revving engines that just sounds right to me. C’mon, show me one person that doesn’t love the intro to “Girls, Girls, Girls”. You’re gonna love this one too!
My son Finnian’s latest jam comes from one of his long time favorites, Grouplove. It’s from their latest album Big Mess (exactly how I would explain their sound…but it works). The song is called “Welcome to Your Life”, and he always asks to pump up the vol. on this one!
