Georgia Barbershop – “It’s Alright, It’s Okay, It Only Took Seven Years”

Georgia Barbershop

It sounds like an old cassette tape demo recording from the seventies or eighties by an English garage- or punk band. Often I find it hard to hear the lyrics from the somewhat can-sounding vocals. It’s straight, simple rock riffs without detours and extravagance. A combination I probably wouldn’t have chosen for my music menu if it hadn’t jumped into my inbox. But it feels good listening to this, and my foot starts moving with the rough guitar rhytms. And when the bass starts pumping with a wavy sound and is followed by the catchy guitar figure in “Trees Passing”, it’s time to surrender. The band’s name is Georgia Barbershop, the album “It’s Alright, It’s Okay, It Only Took Seven Years” is their debut and they are now on their way working with their second album.

Tyred Eyes – “Ghost”

Tyred Eyes

Here’s a couple of tracks to taste Tyred Eyes’, hailing from Göteborg, latest EP “Ghost”. They deliver a melodic, garage-sounding rock’n’roll punk where the two singers give everything in every song; music that feels like it’s made for an emotionally charged and sweaty club gig. The band was formed in 2009 and has earlier released an EP and an album.

Tiger Bell – “Slaughter’s Daughter”

Tiger Bell

The punk band Tiger Bell released their EP “Slaughter’s Daughter” last month, a record full of fast, garageband-sounding melodic rock. Here’s a taste from the EP with the title track. Great song!

The song “Slaughter’s Daughter” came about as Tiger Bell stumbled upon the roller derby team with the same name, googled their home page, became seriously inspired, grabbed the guitars and wrote down the song on a piece of paper – like if it was there all the time waiting to be written.

The Bristles

Here’s some more punk rock, this time with The Bristles and their song and video “The End”. The song is taken from their new album “Bigger Than Punk” and the video comes from Greenpeace UK’s “The Go Beyond Oil campaign”, a campaign with the focus on terminating our dependence on oil. The reasons are quite clearly shown in the film.

Hjärtattack – “Tillbaka till framtiden”

January 15, 2013 at 5:50 pm


I wrote about Joel Segerstedt’s and Markus Johansson’s punk band Hjärtattack half a year ago when they released the single “Överklassafari”. In the end of November they also released the album they promised us, “Tillbaka till framtiden” (“Back to the future”). As the name implies and as I wrote last time, this is a trip back to the eighties and their roots in punk rock back then. And I think that they sound even better now, especially if you like melodic punk. Try for yourself in a couple of songs here below.
