Rattleback and ‘Weeding The Garden State’

Rattleback – Melbourne, Victoria, Australia Despite its numerous derivatives, the far-from dulcet sounds of Hardcore Punk are yet to be quelled.

The OBGMs – Toronto, Ontario, Canada Rambunctious, raucous, writhing and resolute. These are the words both codified and prospective regarding The OBGMs and The Ends. The first three speak for themselves through the band’s Garage Punk n’ Roll thus far but the latter most word? Well, in a succinct, high-velocity nutshell, The OBGMs and The

LASSITERS and Their Self-Titled

////

LASSITERS – London, England, United Kingdom The words “LASSITERS and Their Self-Titled” have (not particularly gracefully) graced Ear Nutrition before. This was back in the now near-mythical, comparatively utopian (but not really) time of 2018 where things were still decidedly shit, but less so. This was a time where their now Demo debut EP was

/////////

Smash Mouse Records – Newport, Wales, United Kingdom Smash Mouse Records and A Tribute To Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2.

Comminor – ‘Radioface’ (Single)

////

Comminor – Västerås, Sweden Comminor have had a little break these past three years. The band’s often visceral, quirky, melodic, occasionally jagged but always driven ’90s style Punk and Skate Punk was always reliable and a go-to but still always maintained that edge that made the band unique.
