Austin's Literature Does Cincinnati

Lunch Time


Appropriately enough, we found this Worcester, Mass. band at Baby, You Got a Stew Goin'! The opening riff kind of reminded us of The Replacements' "Can't Hardly Wait," which is a very good thing indeed, as is the rest of the song. As B,YGaSG! suggests, there's not a lot of info about the band, but maybe they'll serve some up soon. If you want to read their tweets, click here.

We Need Karibean


Our Italian's a bit rusty/nonexistent, but Karibean seem to be from the east coast of da boot. (Possible future side projects: Ehdriatic? Dyerrhenian?) Here's our favorite song from their Love, Tears, and Spiritual Blessing EP, all of which can be downloaded at their Bandcamp page. Learn more at Facebook.

Gross Relations Aren't Gross


We first entered into Gross Relations back in November and have just reencountered them via the ever bountiful Gimme Tinnitus. We chose our favorite from each of two tuneful two-song singles at the Brooklyn band's Bandcamp site, so pay them a visit for more if you like. You can find them here and here, along with access to two other tuneful two-song singles.
