STRAGE play a form of dark instrumental rock that is mostly slow and sludgy, heavy and loud, but there’s also a lot of very soft ambient parts.Formed in April 2011 by Brandon van Eeden (ex Crossingpoint), Jono Harrison (ex Monkey Slutz) and Matt Bedford (Paige of State) their first shows drew raving reviews and much excitement over teaser tracks made available online.
Here’s some kick ass spaced out fuzz rock. James: Vol.1 by Penicillin Baby. This music will stone you.

Members include singer Jerry Jones, the vocalist of the acclaimed psych-blues outfit Trophy Scars, and guitarist Gay Kautz from I Am Heresy; with drummer Vinnie Fiore, bassist Jesse Mariani, and guitarist John Pinho all from the prematurely dismantled Chambers.
The Black Roses started in December, 2011 as a nameless band consisting of Fona (Drums) and Drew (guitar and Vox) with the one goal of makings a couple songs and recording them. A couple weeks later, WA LA ! The duo had made and recorded their two songs, oozing with punk furry, blues attitude and all the grit of garage rock . Still no name, Drew thought long and hard while meditating with a Kentucky Gentlemen and at the bottom of the bottle, The Black Roses were found. The name reflects a band that works hard, but does not take themselves too seriously, even sardonic sounding when compared to other color oriented two piece bands which have already reached the the pearly gates of rock ‘n’ roll heaven. The Black Roses have a raw approach, always recording live in a friend’s living room, garage or warehouse, capturing the big noise of two people. A week after putting their music out via the inter-web, the band got a call that would change their lives, “would you like to play a show?”. The Black Roses played their first show at a house party, playing three songs. Since that show they’ve been offered another one and then another one. The band will keep playing shows, recording and making loud, rock ‘n’ roll music until the sun burns out and everyone starts listening to disco again.
Shrine are back with a whole slew of more blues based hard/stoner rock.
Alternative stoner rock band, from Tricity – Northern Poland, formed in 2006.
Art-rock quartet from Kent, Ohio, formed early 2011. Jeff Hennies (guitar/pedal synths) teamed up with Patrick Hawkins (percussion) and Andrew Bonnis (bass) to compose music that challenged them artistically while remaining accessible to their audience. Long time friend Xe La (vox) added vocals, breathing a fresh life into the the psychedelic progressive sounds being created. The journey begins!
From Chybucca Sounds:
On first listen, Mexican Slang is another straight-out-of-college four-piece, who are sat in their parent’s basement, bleeding the hell of out their second hand amps, in a bid to find crunching riffs that are catchy, original and memorable.
The truth, however, is that Mexican Slang is the alias of a self-proclaimed “blonde weirdo” who “attempts tone-deaf yelling and bangs on buckets” in her own, sweaty apartment. Christened Demon, this six-track debut is incredibly raw; drenched in feedback and thick layers of scuzz, you’ll do well to make out Anna Timoshenko’s teen melodrama quips – although this seems to be the point: a poignant and personal release.
