The Damned - “Look Left” / “Devil in Disguise”

New MusictheneedledropComment

Legendary English punk outfit The Damned has released two new singles titled “Look Left” and “Devil in Disguise.” These songs will be featured on Evil Spirits, the band's comeback album following 2008's So, Who’s Paranoid. “Standing on the Edge of Tomorrow” was the first single to be released from the project.

The new songs may not have the same visceral energy of The Damned’s early work, but they have stuck to their punk roots with the themes of protest and sticking it to the man in their lyrics. Evil Spirits is set to be released on April 13; the band will kick off a European tour in support of the LP on May 17 in Frankfurt.

SISU - "Return The Favor"

New MusicadminComment

California rock outfit SISU combines elements of shoegaze, dream pop, and gothic rock into a tight, catchy series of tracks on the album Blood Tears, which you can grab now via Bandcamp. The song "Return The Favor" has one of the most driving bass lines on the entire album, and has an infectious chorus as well. Enjoy!
