Los Wilds - Muñequita de Trapo
Los Wilds - Muñequita de TrapoLOS WILDS "Muñequita de Trapo" is the new sexy song of LOS WILDS . Recorded and mixed February 2018 in Gamma Studio with Diego Garcia ( The Parrots ) . Master Lois Brea ( Trajano, LOIS ) . Like the mating of the Koala, that's how Los Wilds sound . They scream , growl and squirm like a real live bomb, which finally explodes in their hands . Its sound is loaded with fuzz , reverb and lyrics full of perversion . Dirty and greasy garage all touched in an irresponsible way and without brakes with a single premise: NO COGER PRISIONEROS !. This year they will be in a handful of festivals as they have been chosen by Ines Talent Europe. www.loswilds.bandcamp.com
Faux Ferocious - Stress Kills
Faux Ferocious - Stress KillsFAUX FEROCIOUS "Stress Kills" Pretty Groovy Burger Records (2019) https://burgerrecords.11spot.com/faux-ferocious-pretty-groovy-pre-order.html Faux Ferocious is Reid, Dylan Jonathan and Terry. Reid plays drums, Dylan plays bass, Jonathan and Terry play guitar and sing. They love each other and they love you.Pretty Groovy marks the first studio album from Faux Ferocious and their first LP release with Burger Records After years of subsistence recording on every broken Tascam machine in Middle Tennessee, Faux Ferocious took their figure-it-out approach to freakout rock n’ roll and hit the road to work with audio whiz Drew Vandenberg at the famed Chase Park Transduction in Athens, GA. They ate together, smelled each other and broke down the ego achieving an instinctive sound that allows expert musicianship and simple, evocative lyrics to work as one highlighting the duality of space and constraint. This record finds the sweet spot. It is angular and arresting, it is fast, it is repetitive, it is kosmische, it is punk. It drones, it loops and swirls around. It is guitar rock for people who wonder what it would be like if Ron Asheton and Michael Rother were also in Crazy Horse. The songs on this album allow each musician to stand out without taking over. The lyrics are clear and you can follow the thread of each instrument and each word and just when it feels like it might unravel it snaps back into shape leaving you dangling you from a cliff wondering how you got there. It is music for taking drugs, it is music for cleaning the house, it is music for hard labor or quiet reflection.“Price of Progress”, the first single off the album is a smooth as fuck look at real estate. Reid Cummings and Dylan Palmer drive this song with a locked in groove that grows tougher and tougher with each verse. Jonathan and Terry sing about home ownership in the 21st century from the perspective of an out of touch estate agent who does not realize they are selling a progress built on the scorched earth of neighborhoods bulldozed by developers who don’t give a shit about anything other then finding the next struggling block to make a couple hundred grand off of.Faux Ferocious has been around. They have toured hard they have done it their way and they have something to say with this album. “Pretty Groovy” is just that. These guys are trying to get you moving but they are going to make you listen to what they have to say.“Pretty Groovy” comes out in February of 2019 on Burger Records
Mattiel - Game Show
Mattiel - Game ShowMATTIEL "Game Show" Customer Copy Burger Records (2019) https://burgerrecords.11spot.com/mattiel-customer-copy-pre-order.html It’s a familiar story: fledgling singer does soul-sucking day job in order to fund their real passion during the nocturnal hours. Except Mattiel Brown, Atlanta’s rising star, is a rare exception to this time-honoured tradition: a fulfilled creative by day and night, albeit in different contexts. “It’s like I have two full-time jobs: designer and musician,” she says, humbly hip to her good fortune. During office hours, Brown works as an ad designer and illustrator at MailChimp, a position she’s enjoyed for four years. “I work with a great video production team, in a great studio. Luckily, they’re a company that encourage side gigs.” Out of office hours, Brown swaps the design studio for the stage, a softly-spoken, chilled-out design nerd turned rock & roll belter, performing bold, vintage soul as Mattiel (pronounced ‘maa-TEEL’). Brown grew up on a five-acre farm in rural Brooks, Georgia, the only child of a Detroit native. “My mom bought the farm in the early ‘90s. She had – still has – horses, so I learned to ride western-style when I was 6, 7 years-old,” (a skill Brown nods to in her cover art). As an adolescent, Brown delighted in the ‘60s folk and pop of her mother’s limited vinyl collection: Donovan, Peter Paul and Mary, and Joan Baez. As an adult, relocated in neighbouring Atlanta, she’d sing along to the radio on the long drives to work: Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Andre 3000, Dylan, Marc Bolan, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and Jack White. When Brown first began jamming with InCrowd, the Atlanta-based song-writing and production team behind her dynamite eponymous debut, she had no real designs on making a whole album and no gameplan beyond the fun of “creating something out of nothing.” She said, “That process is always pretty astounding to me, and doing it with other people is even better.” But her producers, Randy Michael and Jonah Swilley, knew a good thing when they heard it: Brown and InCrowd had chemistry. InCrowd’s founders, both skilled multi-instrumentalists, met in 2014, as session musicians touring with soul man Curtis Harding. Michael – an experienced player who’d co-written with Harding and racked up impressive session spots with the likes of Bruno Mars, and The Next Day-era Bowie – played guitar, while Swilley (producer, writer and performer since age 9 and younger brother of Black Lips bassist Jared) played drums. On the road, they bonded over a mutual love of vintage R&R and ‘90s rap. “We discovered we both loved The Beatles as much as Jay-Z, Dylan as much as the Arctic Monkeys,” remembers Swilley. Back in Atlanta, once the Harding tour had wrapped, the pair formed a band, Black Linen, writing reverb-washed guitar music inspired by Tarantino soundtracks, by way of ‘60s Cambodian psych. Mattiel’s sound might borrow from the past, but their art direction – Brown’s inspiring handiwork, of course – is decidedly forward-thinking, all colour block aesthetics (á la the White Stripes) and artful, design-savvy music videos. “I don’t wanna hit people over the head with like, bell bottoms and long hair and a Jimmy Hendrix outfit,” Brown laughs. “People have seen all that before.” Mattiel is a “fresh mesh of retro and contemporary,” says Swilley, the latter thanks in large part to Brown’s vision, voice and on-stage energy. “She's very exciting to watch. She doesn't rehearse it or try to emulate anyone; she's just doing own her thing. And she's not fazed by the crowds [as evidenced during their shows to date: a recent, three-date support slot for Portugal The Man]. It’s kind of incredible really, because in person she's pretty chilled and softly spoken, but when she gets on stage...in the last six months, she's really been killing it.” With a European festival circuit tour scheduled for this summer, Mattiel is no longer Atlanta’s best kept secret. Look out, world.

If you saw them on the street you wouldn't think they are human beings with their thin absent minded appearance they look like near border of starvation (they barely eat). Anyway, people who know them closer know they are nice intelligent guys. The TULIPS reflect the TOMORROW age and have a heavy dislike against people that hurt their aesthetic feelings. A certain frantic quality makes it hard to breathe.

Andy Ferro - Birds
Andy Ferro - BirdsANDY FERRO "Birds" Character Development Burger Records (2019) https://burgerrecords.11spot.com/ferro-andy-character-development.html Nashville musician Andy Ferro has released his 2nf album via Burger Records. The album Character Development was available on Tuesday, January 29th via Spotify and as a limited cassette release. A native of London, Ferro has previously released music with the band Ranch Ghost.Character Development came to exist through Ferro's experimentation with fast recording and production methods. I really wanted to become faster and more self-sufficient in the process of getting music out there for people to hear,so I bought a tape machine and taught myself how to use it as I was recording these songs. On how this process was different than his previous work with Ranch Ghost, Ferro said, I like to be able to write and record at the same time and end up with something useable if I really get into it. Rather than just a garage-band recording or something like that with all of these accidental magic moments that I would just end up trying to replicate later on.Character Development was mixed by Mitch Jones (Fly Golden Eagle, Thunderbith, Majestico) in his studio Lil Bivtown, where keyboard and sound effect work was added to the album a spontaneous yet clean feel.

AJ Dávila - Beautiful
AJ Dávila - BeautifulAJ DAVILA "Beautiful" El Futuro Burger Records (2019) https://burgerrecords.11spot.com/aj-davila-el-futuro-pre-order.html The language of garage punk is not well adapted to expressing optimism. It’s usually more about fighting bad vibes with worse ones and flipping the bird at ill fortune, even (especially) if you brought it on yourself. On El Futuro, the third solo album from AJ Dávila, however, the former guitarist for sadly defunct Puerto Rican garage punk band Dávila 666 expands the genre’s vocabulary with an updated sound that promises a way forward for his music and for fucks-free rock ‘n’ roll in general.
The Brat - Pledge Of Allegiance
The Brat - Pledge Of AllegianceTHE BRAT "Pledge Of Allegiance" Pledge Of Allegiance Burger Records (2019) https://burgerrecords.11spot.com/the-brat-pledge-of-allegiance.html The Brat was a Chicano punk rock ensemble originating from the barrios of the East Los Angeles, California. Its three core members consisted of lead singer Teresa Covarrubias, lead guitarist Rudy Medina, and alternate lead & rhythm guitar player Sid Medina. From their conception in 1979 to their eventual break-up in 1985, The Brat contributed to the customization and inter-meshing of multiple musical and cultural models that culminated in a distinct East Los Angeles, Chicano punk sound. Hard-working and politically-conscious, The Brat nurtured a DIY punk scene, which in East L.A. was defined by unofficial venues and backyard shows because the wealthier West L.A. club owners controlled the popular Westside market. By the time the famous Club Vex was founded in 1980 by Los Illegals frontman Willie Herron, who desired an official venue to host East L.A.'s numerous underrated bands, who were mostly Chicano, The Brat had become one of the best known acts in the area. In late 1980 The Brat was signed as the flagship band to Fatima Records, an upstart new label launched by another local punk group, The Plugz. This collaboration resulted in The Brat's only recorded album, the EP Attitudes, a five-song collection of some of their popular originals featuring Covarrubias' aggressive, yet melodic, punk vocals critiquing social inequality and Rudy Medina (aka "Rudy Brat") and his urgent guitar hooks played over a reggae pop-punk beat. The Brat never found breakthrough success and remained an underground East L.A. Chicano act until breaking up in the late '80s. This cassingle features three tracks; one new song, one old, and one remix.

Catch As Catch Can - ApricotCATCH AS CATCH CAN "Apricot" Regular Vanilla Burger Records (2019) https://burgerrecords.11spot.com/catch-as-catch-can-regular-vanilla.html For those of you who pray that real, honest-to-goodness, raunchy rock n' roll doesn't get wiped off the face of this fucked up beyond all recognition planet of ours..... your time to rejoice is NOW!!! Straight Outta Kassel -the same strange German Town where King Khan decided to inseminate and incubate his new brood -a group of young blood rock n' roll romantics who go by the name of "Catch As Catch Can" have put the city back on the musical map. This quartet hollers and hoots like the wild bunch of hormone drenched fuck ups that they are. They borrow from the beautiful world of Doo Wop harmonies, they twang like the greatest surf champions, they croon like drunken sailors landing in a Hamburg brothel for the very first time! These kids grew up on great rock n' roll and they keep the circle unbroken. Imagine if the Real Kids were a bunch of kids from Germany puking and shitting their way into the hearts of all those hungry for just a little more, loud, young, snotty, beautiful Rock N' Roll..... you can expect the best!!!!! -Ravi Macdonald (tastemaker extraordinaire)
C.J. McKnight - Stinker Strikes Back
C.J. McKnight - Stinker Strikes BackC.J. McKNIGHT "Stinker Strikes Back" (Bonus Track) Music From The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack SPECIAL 42ND ANNIVERSARY EDITION!!! https://burgerrecords.11spot.com/c-j-mcknight-stinker-let-s-loose-ost.html In the mid 1970s I worked on 3 low budget drive in movies. The first (and easily most successful) was a hillbilly race car movie entitled Moonrunners that was the bases for The Dukes Of Hazard television program. The second was a screwball science fiction comedy so full of plot holes and continuity errors that it was deemed unreleasable. Eventually the distributor edited in a few hardcore sex scenes and it was released as Flesh Gordon during the porn chic era. The last movie I worked on was a trucker buddy CB radio film entitled Stinker Let’s Loose. It stared a first time actor named James McCoolroy who seemed to have been hired on the basis of his ability to grow chest hair. The director was a Spanish alcoholic who insisted the script be rewritten to include his recently acquired pet chimpanzee. And the whole thing was sponsored by Schlitz beer. I swear the entire cast and crew spent the whole six weeks of filming absolutely shit face plastered on schlitz. I remember one night the piss drunk director offering $1000 to anyone who could out box his monkey. The film was an unmitigated disaster. Some of the footage was sold to other better trucking movies. A scene where several truckers smash up a town with their big rigs in an attempt to rescue Stinker from a corrupt sheriff ended up in the movie Convoy. Another scene where a truck was crashed through a billboard was used in White Line Fever. - James Johnston, Author of Stinker Lets Loose! The Novelization
Outrageous Cherry - Gotta Get Back Inside Your Mind
Outrageous Cherry - Gotta Get Back Inside Your MindOUTRAGEOUS CHERRY "Gotta Get Back Inside Your Mind" Meet You In The Shadows Burger Records (2019) https://burgerrecords.11spot.com/outrageous-cherry-meet-me-in-the-shadows.html Outrageous Cherry combined psychedelia, folk rock, art rock, and bubblegum music across more than 12 albums and nearly three decades. They attracted an international cult following and were a longstanding fixture in the Detroit rock and roll scene since their first gigs in 1991. MEET YOU IN THE SHADOWS is their final studio album, completed before the passing of founding lead guitarist Larry Ray. Some of the songs, like "Lies Feel Good" and "Creeps Retreat", address contemporary social and political turmoil, while "The Beginning of the End of the Night" and "Complicate Me" are more of a psychological hall of mirrors. The title track, "Meet You in the Shadows" is all of these things at once. The musicians are the same lineup that recorded the previous Outrageous Cherry album on Burger Records, THE DIGITAL AGE: Matthew Smith- vocals, guitar, keyboards Larry Ray - lead guitar Colleen Burke - bass Maria Nuccilli -drums ...with backing vocals by everyone. Outrageous Cherry began in 1991, playing gigs in coffee houses, bars, and art galleries. Like the Gories, who were on the Detroit scene a few years before them, O.C. used a minimal drum kit with no cymbals, which allowed the full range of their guitar tonalities to be heard without having to turn their amps up to 10. Their self-titled debut album was released in 1994 on Bar/None Records, followed by a sequence of albums on different labels, including a couple of years signed to Alan McGee's Poptones label. O.C. toured the USA and Europe, and were sometimes an opening act for bands like Wilco, Yo La Tengo, Stereolab, The Soundtrack of Our Lives, Guided by Voices and others. The New Pornographers were also fans of the group and recorded an e.p. of Outrageous Cherry covers. Despite their prolific songwriting tendencies, Outrageous Cherry's best known song is probably their cover of Junior Kimbrough's somewhat psychedelic blues number "Lord Have Mercy on Me", which appeared on a 2005 tribute LP with the reformed Stooges, and later was used in the opening credits of the film "Black Snake Moan". Outrageous Cherry's music also reached a wider audience thanks to Little Steven Van Zandt, who regularly plays O.C. on his radio show, and also curated a CD compilation of his favorite O.C. tracks. The band was always working on new songs and new recordings, even while Matthew Smith was busy producing artists like the Go, Andre Williams, Nathaniel Mayer, and touring with Rodriguez, Crime and the City Solution, and the Volebeats. The band had a few personnel changes through the years in the rhythm section, but Matthew and Larry had a solid musical chemistry. The blend of Larry's lead guitar and Matthew's lead vocals was always inspiring them to keep cranking out records. MEET YOU IN THE SHADOWS finds Larry's guitar solos blasting over and under the vocal melodies and harmonies in as good an example of this chemistry as any of their previous records. On "The Last Nice Guy in Detroit", you can hear Outrageous Cherry in their kitchen rehearsal space and studio, playing a song they've just learned how to play, and then mixing it immediately with no overdubs at all, because it sounded fine right there in the room. In this track you can hear the band doing exactly what they would've been doing at their first rehearsal 25 years earlier. They didn't take these musical happenings for granted, knowing well that it's not easy to keep a musical entity thriving and relevant for so many years. They would look at how long Slade stayed together, or the fact that Kraftwerk were soon coming to town, and this was all the encouragement they needed to keep jamming and writing and recording.

The Asteroid #4 - What A Sorry Way To Go
The Asteroid #4 - What A Sorry Way To GoTHE ASTEROID #4 "What A Sorry Way To Go" Introducing... Burger Records (2019) https://burgerrecords.11spot.com/asteroid-4-introducing.html On the Asteroid #4's self-titled debut album, released on their own label, Lounge Records, the foursome combines elements of acoustic folk, droning rock, and middle-eastern tinges with a heavy dose of psychedelia to create an uncommonly original and innovative space-rock album for the latter 1990s. Natives of Philadelphia (or "Psychedelphia" as they refer to it), the Asteroid #4 keeps the ratio even between instrumentals and songs with vocals. The album is consistent throughout, with no glaring weak areas, and many strong points. The instrumentals "Underbelly of a Mushroom" and "Visitation Rights" are psychedelic excursions into hypnosis, with the bass and drums providing a solid foundation from which delay and reverb-laden guitar, keyboard, and sampler lines emanate and swirl. On "The Admiral's Address," the vocals seem to float above the electric guitar, while on "What a Sorry Way to Go," and "Honey Bee" sitar lines add further dimension to the compositions. The guitar work throughout the entire album is wonderful in that it never takes forefront in the song. Everything that is done by the guitar, and the other instruments for that matter, contributes to the song as a whole. Much of the beauty of this album is a result of its subtlety. More rewards are discovered upon each listen, and look for the Asteroid #4 to take us further into space as the year 2000 passes. - Jason Kane, All Music Guide
The Tough Shits - Late Bloomer
The Tough Shits - Late BloomerTHE TOUGH SHITS "Late Bloomer" Burning In Paradise Burger Records (2019) https://burgerrecords.11spot.com/the-tough-shits-burning-in-paradise.html The Tough Shits are a rock and roll band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Their unique sound is a sonic missive to their garage forefathers, without being strictly, just another scuzzy rock band. Their musical influences are informed of: The Rolling Stones, KISS, Sam Cooke & The Clash. Their stylistic influences come directly from bands similar to the New York Dolls. They have shared past bills with touring bands like Jay Reatard, Redd Kross, Mikal Cronin, Meatbodies and every good band that’s passed through Philly.Philadelphia's perennial champions of cult rock anonymity, The Tough Shits remain, through line up changes, life mismanagement, and general personal turmoil, a band of brothers. Forever walking the line between celebration and self-loathing, the juvenile and the genuine, they combat their cynicism with open hearted enthusiasm for writing and performing their offbeat songs. Operating under the belief that the odds are stacked ever too high against any hope of success, they long ago learned the onlytrue path is to follow their own erratic muse, and above all, to make each other laugh in the face of failure. Their new album Burning In Paradise peels back the surface and reveals new dimensions of feeling and 'sad magic.'The Tough Shits’ first new album in 8 years “Burning In Paradise” is out worldwide on Burger Records on March 22, 2019! “The Tough Shits are so half-assed about being a ‘successful’ band that it's almost heroic. Though they rarely play outside Philadelphia and they have the self-promotional instincts of a pile of bricks, they've amassed a small but fervent cult of admirers drawn in by their genius-level pop hooks and infectious attitude of not giving a single fuck in the whole world.” -Chicago Reader
