crashdollzI had a chance to listen to the new CrashDollz cd, ‘Punks In Amerika‘, several times. The Detroit rockers deliver 11 tracks of hardcore, High Octane Punk, that incorporates elements of both metal, and garage. The songs are filled with captivating melodies,  dynamite riffs, and a way cool rhythm section. There are wonderful changes, some cool effects, rocking vocals, and blisteringly sweet guitar licks and solos.  The album is a powerful, guitarcentric trip through anarchy, and anti-establishment sentiments, delivered with wonderfully angst riddled vocals. CrashDollz offer some insanely exciting, in your face, power punk. Its good to know that there are Punks In Amerika! Favorite tracks: “Murder A Go-Go“, and “Activate“. You really need to check this out here, and buy a couple of cds. And, if you are ever see them playing in your home town, go and see them live. Really.

WATERSHED HOUR: Bang With The Van Gogh

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 26, 2013 by TheManicBlogger

wh2Watershed Hour is an incredibly unique band. I recently listened to their 2013 EP, Bang with The Van Gogh, and found that 4 of the 6 tracks used bass, drums, and vocals exclusively! This duo, hailing from Whitby, On , have discovered a sound that really requires nothing more than bass and drums.

The first track, “That’s My Bass Solo?!“, has great opening effects, thundering drums,and an incredible bass line, and I love the vocal. “Knock, Knock. Who’s There? Doctor. Doctor Who?“, brings a powerful rhythm section accompanied by great guitar riffs as an added bonus. The definitive bass line of “Morgan Freeman“. The 60’s fuzz bass sound of “Can’t Be Bothered To Come Up With A Title“, The insanely wonderful vocals of “I Married A Narcissist. Myself“. My favorite track, “Pre-Verse“, includes Laura Klinduch‘s killer drums, some cool effects, and solid guitar riffs, played by singer and bassist Natalie Stardust.

whThis is garage rock. Alternative-punk with a twist. There are elements of metal. It is the kick in your face music that reeks of anti-establishment and social angst. It is powerful. It is honest.  It is simplistically wonderful. It is fun.There were times, when listening to the album, that I didn’t notice the absence of guitar. When I heard those riffs, they were well placed and added texture to the music. These girls have talent and they have a plan: To make music the way they want to make it. I give them a great deal of credit for stepping out of the herd and choosing a different path. The EP delivers a unique sound, from a somewhat off centre band who know exactly what they are doing. No guitars? Not a problem, Just Bang With The Van Gogh. Definitely worth a listen.
