Two Singles from Punk Fox Records (Summer ’15)

XOF

Daddy Issues – “So Hard / Sex on the Beach”

These girls are indeed having fun, so says the press kit and the proof is in the music. Wild surf pop meets crazy sexual desire in all the right ways. Seriously, just listen to the opening track and you’ll see what I’m talking about. I mean, the kit hints at it but you really get the blunt humor upon first listen. The b-side primes up some superb harmonies while still keeping up with the theme. This one follows a bit more of a narrative which makes me love it all the more. Hot damn, this is a a fun single! This lovely vinyl comes pressed on glass bottle and it really shines! Grab your copy ASAP! (5 out of 5)

Nervous Twitch – “Jonny’s Got a Gun / And We Did / This Modern World”

Surf/psyche influences meet up with 70s/modern styled pop/punk. Think The Raincoats, The Ramones and The Vaselines but faster, darker in spots and unrelenting. The music is flawless, showcasing the talent of this four-piece band and the killer vocals. Confidence, attitude and prime punk perfect make this shiny blue vinyl stand out. There are some elements of new wave lurking quietly here and some minor bits of indie but this is punk through and through. Fans of the aforementioned bands will adore this. I know I did!

About Nick H.

I'm a geek for music whether it be on vinyl, CD, 78 or whatever. My goal is to sniff out the greated music on Earth, specializing in the obscure. I make music myself as well, mostly ambient and sound collage (1 album out and a few remixes so far). I work full time as a professional mascot (it pays the pills) but will soon retire, i hope.
