Wax Idols are playing at Cake Shop (5/3) and Shea Stadium (5/4) this weekend!
Power Trip - “Diving Apprehension”
If you’ve got a problem with metal, then I’ve got a problem with your face. Speaking of faces, here’s a band that will gladly melt yours with ease. Power Trip hails from Texas but they might just be from the gates of hellllllll.
Savages - “Flying To Berlin”
Seeing a band live before they record any material has been the finest perk of living in NYC for me. In turn, I place a lot of weight on live shows when it comes to sizing up a band. Sure, any band can make music and make it sound better. But, that can all go to shit when their live performance is a lackluster.
Enter Savages, a London post-punk band that I was lucky enough to catch their live US debut. Their bass lines maintain the dark tone while Jehnny Beth’s vocals pushes the music into the holy-shit-I’m-feeling-this realm. Other than that, this band needs no further intro since playing the first track will help you understand immediately why you need to stay tuned in to them. I grabbed their 7” live recording and it kills. I highly advise you to follow suit.

Splashh (Yup, two Hs there) from the UK has had my full attention for the past few months. Listen in and get psyched. Who doesn’t want a vacation?
