Band Recommendations!


Myty Konkeror is a straight up noisy/heavy act! The CT/NY dudes have an LP out called I miss the future on Twin Lakes Records. You can take a listen to their rockers here: http://mytykonkeror.bandcamp.com/. They’ve got a video for the instrumental “Cell Division”, check it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1sQARk-S4kA&feature=player_embedded#at=144. The band name lends itself pretty well to the music!

M-Tank of South Carolina play a very poppy rock ‘n’ roll by way of fuzz, scuzz, and twang that calls to mind the excellent rock ‘n’ roll/punk that has come out of the Atlanta scene. I’m digging the home-recording esque dynamic to their tunes — they’re not raped by hiss to the point of distraction, but rather to a point of keen suitability. Whatever that means! Check out their reverb nation page which is replete with audio and video: http://www.reverbnation.com/mtank.
