    Surfin’ USSR
    Label: Ipecac Recordings

    Improbable permutations of traditional Bulgarian melodies along with jazz, folk, and rock that have been percolated to oblique perfection. The songs often lead with uptempo folk rhythms that are broken with soundtrack-ish ambiance and other delightful distractions.

    In The Bathroom
    Label: Barbarian Records

    Absolutely sick, twisted and spastic grind core. Containing gurgled vocals, repulsive lyrical concepts and a big fat zero in the redeeming social value category. Not for the weak of stomach or mind.

    Label: Self Released

    A Madison trio that knows how to play with metal structures of the past while injecting a contemporary intensity to them. Progressive a-tonal riffs conjoined with plodding, pummeling or explosive beats while hoisting a flair for noisy experimental fringe offerings treated with harsh angst ridden vocals.

    French Horn Rebellion
    Label: Self Released

    A quirky pop-tronica trio from NYC, but with roots in Milwaukee, WI. The infectious retro bent they shade their compositions with is their trademark and has an immediate off-beat commercial value that serves them well.

    Fear Nuttin Band
    Yardcore
    Label: Bodog Music

    Dual dancehall style vocals utilizing a wide variety of musical genre platforms to riff off of. Most of them are heavier or punkier; some are more reggae, but all have the hippin,’ hoppin’ vocals. Quite catchy stuff!

    The Premonition
    Label: Century Media

    Driving by guitar wunderkind Gus G. (ex-Dream Evil, Nightrage, Mystic Prophecy, Arch Enemy), this frenzied Greek power metal comes with all the dramatic fortitudes and invigorating arpeggios of musical aptitude one would associate with such head banging eloquence.

    Label: Future Noise Records

    Although occasionally accompanied by others, the vision of this Minneapolis rock n roll outfit is inspired, delivered and directed by one die hard woman flaunting affections for vaudevillian flairs amidst spoken poetry/vocals and life story rock rants.

    The Sacred Play Of Life
    Label: Wake The World

    Soulful crooning compliments the flowing piano and contemplative writing style with a folk, jazz and jam-infused bluesy backbone. This talented Twin Cities group rounds it out with some occasional Spanish influences.

    Label: Conspiracy Records

    This incessantly slow grind and churn outfit pulls out achingly somber yet meditative sonic soliloquies that would leave few standing. Time warping trance etheric tonalities.

    Tony Furtado
    Deep Water
    Label: Funzalo Records

    Furtado is an award winning banjo prodigy and slide guitar player so it comes as no surprise that this release spotlights an entertaining blend of both instruments. The diverse songs are propelled by rich rhythmic undertones with a folksy flair.
