  1. I Am Not The Crow
    by windings
    00:00/00:00
    Sun in my Bones Sun in my Bones
    Being that this is my first purchase on Bandcamp, I am proud to find this fine discovery from Ireland known as Windings. Their album is entitled "I Am Not The Crow".

    Windings is one of those rarities in 2012 that has a distinctive sound, unlike other typical bands. "Sun In My Bones", the first track from the album, is my personal favorite. The best part about Windings is that they don't try too hard, but what they do here they do it well, and is still uniquely original. A gem!

  2. Unlimited Nights & Weekends
    by Boyjazz
    00:00/00:00
    Treat Steamin' Treat Steamin'
    Boyjazz, my second purchase on Bandcamp, is a treat & guilty pleasure for fans of classic hard rock. The music transcends the 70's & 80's, and is done very well with good taste.

    The funny part is, the album was recorded in 2006, and while retaining it's indie credo, it sounds classic all the same. This is a long overdue welcome release from a band that somehow seems to work just fine in a modern setting all it's own. A recommended album!

  3. Mothership
    by Mothership
    00:00/00:00
    Cosmic Rain Cosmic Rain
    One could be excused for believing that Mothership is another above average stoner rock band from this millennium. After closer observation, this album does begin to reveal it's own charm about it.

    It took me awhile to sort of see where Mothership are coming from musically. Rather than being copyists, Mothership are indeed an excellent band, who is paying homage to their heroes from the past. Mothership is giving us hope that 70's inspired hard rock isn't dead!

  4. JOY (2012)
    by JOY
    00:00/00:00
    Lovin' Man Lovin' Man
    JOY are a blues based heavy psychedelic rock band from San Diego, California. If you are into "heavy" acid rock sounds like Blue Cheer from the late 60's, then you will like JOY.

    One listen to the song, "Lovin' Man", will tell you what ride you are in for. If you are looking to fry your brain, or plaster your ass against the wall, then look no further than this bundle of "JOY" from 2012!

    Warning: You will be deaf after listening to this album! Just thought I'd warn ya.....

    Weight of This World Weight of This World
    Of all the releases to come out of the waning garage rock revival of the 2010's,out of nowhere, comes this band called The Kingston Springs from Tennessee.

    Spanning the tried & tested combination of blues, rock & country, it is the The Kingston Springs songwriting approach that makes their brand of garage rock fresh, unique & original, without sounding like another typical garage band parody. Thanks to The Kingston Springs for reassuring us garage rock is still alive and well!

  6. On The Loose
    by Blackfoot Gypsies
    00:00/00:00
    Don't Know About You Don't Know About You
    Tennessee State seems to be a hot spot at this time for good garage rock! If you need further proof of this, just refer to The Kingston Springs, who are also from Tennessee, and are on this page to the <<<<left.

    Basically, like The Kingston Springs, The Blackfoot Gypsies mine similar territory, with blues, country and rock influences. Mainly, The Blackfoot Gypsies country influences are dominant, but this is still highly recommended for garage fans, and quite unique musically.

  7. Kentucky Gentlemen
    by Those Crosstown Rivals
    00:00/00:00
    Bear's Den Bear's Den
    Those Crosstown Rivals are a band from Kentucky that straddles the lines between Southern rock, cow punk, garage rock, blues, hard rock and Americana. This would seem an unlikely musical combination, but this is quite unique, and it works! Utilizing the above influences, they don't sound like most bands because of how they write their material, and can only be heard to be believed!

    Those Crosstown Rivals make a very impressionable effort. Check this album out now to see why!

  8. HARD CANDY HEARTS
    by HARD CANDY HEARTS
    00:00/00:00
    Cemetery Man Cemetery Man
    Hard Candy Hearts are an excellent garage rock band from Indiana, with some blues & rockabilly influences. There is some use of saxophone. Saxophone is a rarity nowadays in garage rock, making Hard Candy Hearts a little bit different from the pack to a degree.

    Hard Candy Hearts aren't here to try & change the music world, but for what they do, they are doing it well, all with a certain sincerity & passion. Don't pass this one up if you are a garage rock fan! Recommended!

  9. Tump
    by TUMP
    00:00/00:00
    Love My Death Love My Death
    Tump are a really good band from Texas, with more of a slight Southern rock influence. You will hear a little bit more of a rootsy vibe permeating this album. What makes this so cool though is the fact that it only utilizes the Southern rock vibes as an inspiration.

    In summation..........

    What we have here is some good old down home classic sounding rock, fried up the Southwest Texas way! Serve hot with the volume cranked to the max! Recommended!

  10. Yer Quite Welcome
    by Live Ones
    00:00/00:00
    Disowned Disowned
    Live Ones are a band from New York. And, while they don't exactly reinvent the wheel of 70's proto punk, they most certainly pay homage to the style with grand respect, and make it their own.

    Live Ones are for those of you who cannot seem to get enough classic proto-punk, with just that touch of modern ingredients and attitude.

    Crank the volume up, this is a recommended slab of vinyl!

  11. Dimension Thule
    by Blue Snaggletooth
    00:00/00:00
    Fireball Island Fireball Island
    Here we have a cool stoner rock band with a funny name of Blue Snaggletooth. Their album is entitled, "Dimension Thule".

    On the Blue Snaggletooth Bandcamp page, they tag themseleves as psychedelic rock. There might be a couple of tracks where you could say they might fit the psych banner, but for the most part, this album is actually a mixture of stoner rock with one thrash metal track entitled "Fireball Island". Check the song out here. A killer album!

    -Undergroundhero
  12. Cube
    by Cube
    00:00/00:00
    Drive Drive
    Cube is an excellent stoner rock band from Greece that is inspired by funk/jazz. This would seem an unlikely combination, however, Cube is able to play this fusion so well that they pull it off with great execution. Their musicianship is exceptional!

    If you are looking for something different in the land of stoner rock, then look no further than Cube! They most certainly aren't mining the same fields of influences like most other bands are in the stoner rock field. Recommended!

  13. Ouroboros
    by Hypatia Lake
    00:00/00:00
    Star Eater Star Eater
    Many fans who have been hopeful for Hypatia Lake to make a great album must've had very patient and trusting ears. This is mainly due to their previous efforts being hit & miss for some fans. And now, out of nowhere, comes this, Hypatia Lake's "Ouroboros", a modern heavy psych record, with some stoner influences .

    It will be great to see what future direction Hypatia Lake will take. This album comes with a high recommendation!

  14. Rokeville
    by The Columbines
    00:00/00:00
    Manpowered Manpowered
    What do you get when you cross the blues with surf music, and outlaw country styled Americana?

    Answer :

    A bizarre combination that makes up a band known as The Columbines, and their unique album entitled, "Rokeville". It will be interesting to see what road The Columbines will travel next after staying in "Rokeville". Rokeville is an album full of interesting detours & imagination that keep the music unique/fresh sounding. Highly recommended!

  15. "Prisma Circus"
    by Prisma Circus
    00:00/00:00
    The Great Car The Great Car
    Prisma Circus are a spacy blues influenced psychedelic rock band from Spain. This is their first self titled EP on vinyl from 2012. This EP has been getting quite a few rave reviews since last year, and is excellent. Guitarist, Oscar García Albizu, most certainly knows his guitar trade well, playing memorable riffs & solos.

    Prisma Circus first effort is one of the best physical format EP releases of 2012. Be sure to look out for Prisma Circus' first full length album in 2014!

  16. Garbles
    by Rock Bass
    00:00/00:00
    Killing It Killing It
    Bands seem to come and go all of the time these days, without having anything unique or original to say. In the past couple of years, some music magazines were writing off indie rock as dead. It is 2013, and the press is wrong....

    Rock Bass is an excellent
    indie band from Morgantown, West Virginia. They consist of talented musicians & writers. Their quality also matches the artistry. "Garbles", may be one of the best indie releases of 2013. Listen to Rock Bass, and see why!

    Content Content
    Tennessee state not only has been credited as the birth of rock & roll, but it is also a mecca for indie music from the 2000's-2010's.

    The Features, who are from Sparta, Tennessee, are no exception to this rule. Formed in 1997, The Features have been releasing music since 2003. Along the way, The Features have musically matured, but also refined their unique brand of indie rock. Check out their 3rd. album,"Wilderness", to see why it made many top indie albums lists of 2012.

    Final Escape Final Escape
    70's classic rock seems to be something that many musicians favor in Sweden. While underground music scenes seem stagnant in some places, the Swedish have a way of keeping their scene alive longer, but also seem to make it sound better!

    Amaxa are another great band from Sweden, whose classic rock influences are interwoven into their brand of bluesy stoner rock. For those of you who like stoner rock, the sound of Sweden is unmatched! Amaxa is another example to hear why.

  19. All Be Fine
    by Like Lions
    00:00/00:00
    Hunters & Gatherers Hunters & Gatherers
    Like Lions is a vehicle for Seattle, Washington based musicians; Patrick O'Neill and Ben Kersten.

    Using folk & pop music as a template, Like Lions, "All Be Fine", is an album full of excellent songwriting, with the use of synths & keyboards for effects. At first, the electronics may come off as a gimmick, but turns out good for their creative use of effects in some songs & passages."All Be Fine", will make my top 2013 indie albums list. A must own for indie pop fans!

    -Undergroundhero
  20. Volume One
    by Perhaps
    00:00/00:00
    Volume One Volume One
    Perhaps are a genre bending/forward thinking band of utmost complexity. They could best be described as math rock, and are just as influenced by prog, as they are by free form jazz.

    Perhaps first album, "Volume 1", has one continuous song on the entire album, clocking in at 37:48. They play very complex time signatures throughout the song, but then end it with an orchestra. So, you think you have heard it all? Try this album out, and see why you could be wrong. Recommended!

  21. Soft Time Traveler
    by Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken Toys
    00:00/00:00
    Devil's In The Details Devil's In The Details
    One way to describe Walter Sickert & The Army Of Broken Toys music is to say they are cabaret pop/rock. They are also unique & unusual, as well as diverse, sophisticated and talented. This all pretty much adds up to something special, and unlike anything you might see or hear in 2013.

    If you are looking for something different, then this is it. "Soft Time Traveler" will be on most indie fans best albums lists of 2013, and for good reasons. A recommended modern classic!

    -Undergroundhero
  22. Wyvern And Children First
    by Hot Fog
    00:00/00:00
    To The Helm To The Helm
    Hot Fog are a straight up traditional heavy metal band in the classic sense. Hot Fog's first EP, "Wyvern And Children First", may very well account for being one of the very best physical format/privately released traditional metal vinyl EP's in the U.S., during the millennium!

    Hot Fog actually stay true to the classic sound of metal, but their riffs are also new, memorable & fresh sounding. Just listen to the song, "To The Helm". The riffs kill on this EP! A must own!

    -Undergroundhero
  23. Feel EP
    by SWIMM
    00:00/00:00
    Feels Feels
    Many times, more often than not, artists or bands who tend to fuse familiar styles together, sometimes lack in originality.

    SWIMM are one such band that manages to somehow take indie pop/rock and fuse it together, with dance rhythms & psychedelia successfully. The best part about SWIMM is that they don't sound like everyone else fusing these same exact styles.

    SWIMM's first EP, "Feel", is wholeheartedly recommended, and is easily one of the best indie EP releases of 2013!

    Lone Crow Lone Crow
    For the first time, I can honestly tell you that there are no highlights from this record! Why, you might ask? Because this IS one of those albums where naming highlights is next to impossible!

    The Lone Crows are a 70's blues/classic rock influenced band from Minneapolis, Minnesota. From the vocals, to the musicianship, this record is a killer from start to finish. All of this coming from four young guys, who sound as if they have played forever! Recommended!

  25. Man Of Two Visions (KR-29)
    by Valkyrie
    00:00/00:00
    Running Out Running Out
    In the world of doom metal, Valkyrie, from Harrisonburg, Virginia are different from other bands in 2008. They don't seem to sound like most other modern doom bands, but rather, come from the traditional school of Pentagram. This isn't a bad thing because they still have a unique sound all their own, with memorable riffs & a good vocalist who actually doesn't growl.

    If you like classic sounding doom, check out "Man Of Two Visions" by Valkyrie.

  26. Mad Anthony

    Yellow Pages Yellow Pages
    Mad Anthony is an indie/stoner/grunge band from Cincinnati, Ohio, inspired by way of 90's rock.

    Ringo, of Mad Anthony, will go on record as saying they call themselves a hybrid of stoner punk/grunge, but whatever the case, these guys do rock. One listen to this, their "self titled" second album, and you will be wanting to hear more & more of their signature rock & roll. Totally recommended!

    -Undergroundhero
  27. My Wild Dreams
    by Abstract Artimus
    00:00/00:00
    My Wild Dreams My Wild Dreams
    Abstract Artimus, from New York State, is one artist that cannot easily be described. Using punk rock as a template, Abstract Artimus can best be summed up as a futuristic dark tribal cave man, or a one man garage rock show?

    Well, at least that is what his Bandcamp page pretty much implies........

    Repeated listening is required to fully appreciate Abstract Artimus album, "My Wild Dreams". If you want something a little different in garage rock, then this is recommended.

  28. Into The Sun
    by Molior Superum
    00:00/00:00
    Sad Man's Boogieland Sad Man's Boogieland
    Molior Superum is a 70's hard rock influenced stoner band from Gothenburg, Sweden. This may account for one of the best Swedish stoner rock private vinyl releases of 2013.

    As an import to the U.S., Molior Superum, "Into The Sun", costs $39.35 USD to ship! Most of the time, because of the price on a hefty import such as this, I normally would pass, but I am glad I didn't! This is so good, I just could not leave this excellent record! Every song rocks, making it a must own!

  29. Dark Country
    by Dark Country

    Harbinger Harbinger
    Armed with the energy of punk, along with the crunch of classic hard rock/metal, Dark Country, from Portland, Oregon, are a first-rate band with an excellent debut album.

    Simply put, every song on this self titled debut rocks from start to finish. Every guitar solo on this record counts, and is done professionally within 2-4 minutes of a song. Buy this limited edition gold vinyl, and be prepared to rock, but act fast before they are all gone!

  30. Ephemera
    by Tan Vampires
    00:00/00:00
    Into The West Into The West
    Tan Vampires are a group from the state of New Hampshire who play an eclectic brand of indie pop.

    Not very many bands come to my mind when listening to the Tan Vampires latest EP, "Ephemera". Besides pop, they draw from other sources like cool jazz. The music mood in itself is quite "breezy & cool", but when finished, the music leaves you with a good feeling & sense of well being.

    This makes for good fall/wintertime music, and goes good with coffee or tea. Recommended!

  31. Anthropos
    by Mother Of God
    00:00/00:00
    230 230
    There isn't really a whole lot I can say about Mother Of God and their album, "Anthropos". This is quite possibly one of the most raved about stoner rock albums on the Small Stone record label in 2013, and quite possibly one of the best from Sweden to date. This is saying quite a lot, since there have been quite a few Swedish bands in 2013 that equal MOG.

    How many quality stoner rock bands can you find from Sweden? Mother Of God has just been added to that list. Recommended!

    -Undergroundhero
  32. Homeless
    by Final Flash
    00:00/00:00
    Chosen Generation Chosen Generation
    Final Flash are an indie rock group with some folk & psych influences, hailing from Montreal, Quebec in Canada.

    It took me two listens for "Homeless", this fine debut vinyl album from Final Flash, to sink into my brain. With that said, once you hear this album, and you are a sucker for memorable melodies, you will be hooked for good!

    "Homeless", is recommended to those of you who like their indie rock melodic, but with a down tempo groove. A high quality must own record!

  33. Corsair S/T
    by Corsair

    Agathyrsi Agathyrsi
    Corsair are an excellent band from Charlottesville, Virginia, inspired by 70's & 80's hard rock/traditional metal, but aren't completely retro either.

    Ripe candidates for influences could reference Iron Maiden or Thin Lizzy in the traditional/power metal camp musically. Corsair still don't sound like any band I have heard from the 70's & 80's, let alone the 00's.

    At face value, Corsair is one of the best hard rock bands out there today in the modern traditional metal field!

    -Undergroundhero
  34. Alpha Centauri EP

    Skykrakken Skykrakken
    As of this review, it is December 2013, and this is exactly the same month for the release of Corsair's second EP, "Alpha Centauri".

    Corsair had already put out their first full length effort back in April 2012, and now we are treated to another dose of killer Corsair metal sounds!

    On this EP, you basically get the same style of the self titled LP, but the songs seem slightly less epic in nature this time around. If you like the first LP, then you will need this too!

  35. Trans-Atlantic Pysch Classics Vol. 2
    by Electric Peanut Butter Company
    00:00/00:00
    Big Tweed Big Tweed
    Adrian Quesada & Shawn Lee are two friends who met in Austin, Texas during a SXSW show in 2010. After expressing similar interests in music, this would later develop into The Electric Peanut Butter Co.

    The result? A mixture of rock, psych, funk & soul music, which proves to be quite effective. And, although they aren't exactly utilizing influences that haven't already been tried before, it is how those influences are being used that make this a fresh album to not be missed!

    -Undergroundhero
  36. Learn to Feel
    by Wilderman
    00:00/00:00
    Wanderin' Moan Wanderin' Moan
    Wilderman are a collective of experimental artists whose album, "Learn To Feel", shifts between spacy blues rock on one hand, and folk on the other.

    At first, this album can be a stark assault on the senses. However, a few listens of this album also reveal a certain creativity not heard often within the confines of blues & folk music.

    Regardless of what genre Wilderman plays, they may be challenging, but are also original on their own indescribable terms.

    Amazing!

  37. The Secret Will Keep You
    by Brass Bed

    Cold Chicory Cold Chicory
    When it comes to some indie music these days, it is getting quite complicated to find artists or bands that have creative substance & originality, as well as ones who are actually any good to begin with.

    In this case, I happened to stumble upon Brass Bed on Bandcamp, which also led me to believe there are still some artists/bands out there who are not only good, but are still coming up with fresh or unique ideas.

    Brass Bed "The Secret Will Keep You", fulfills this promise.

  38. Messenger (Digital / 12" vinyl)
    by JoDee Purkeypile
    00:00/00:00
    I Think It's Alright I Think It's Alright
    You know, it's quite a shame when certain artists aren't more well known outside of their regional area.

    Unfortunately, this just happens to be the same fate that befalls excellent artists like JoDee Purkeypile. On one hand, JoDee is well known in Austin, Texas, but absolutely barely known elsewhere. He not only possesses a wonderful talented gift for writing good songs, but he also has an excellent voice to boot.

    There is NO excuse why he isn't heard by a larger audience!

    -Undergroundhero
  39. Dark Eyes
    by Half Moon Run
    00:00/00:00
    Full Circle Full Circle
    Half Moon Run may very well be one of the best Canadian bands you have never heard. Their album, "Dark Eyes", is also one of the most original sounding releases from the Canadian indie music scene during 2012. They mix indie, folk, pop and electronica into this wonderful blend of melodicism & vocal harmonies that are dead on brilliant.

    With 302 followers on Bandcamp to date, it is clear to see why Half Moon Run are something special.

    A modern classic! Just listen!

  40. Bazaar Bazaar
    by Birds of Avalon
    00:00/00:00
    Bicentennial Baby Bicentennial Baby
    Birds Of Avalon are a strange & confusing, but yet familiar anomaly in indie rock. When listening, you swear that you heard this music before from another era. Birds Of Avalon's first album, "Bazaar Bazaar", is begging for personal identity, but is achieved best when playing neutral without being forcefully weird.

    If you are going to check out Birds Of Avalon, then "Bazaar Bazaar" is where to begin. Their other two LP's are more experimental, but aren't the place to start.

  41. All The Ghosts
    by Stephen Bartolomei With His Comrades
    00:00/00:00
    Wolf Song Wolf Song
    Stephen Bartolomei is a singer/songwriter from Omaha, Nebraska who may be folk based, but not formulaic. Both musically & lyrically, Stephen is not only creative, but the songs are arranged well, with backing by his band of Comrades.

    Stephen Bartolomei is not just a self respecting lover of music, but he is also a vinyl enthusiast. Stephen took a lot of care in making this album, and he wants you to enjoy listening to it, as much as he enjoyed making it.

    Highly recommended!

  42. Dependent Lividity
    by Arma Secreta
    00:00/00:00
    Sing Me To Sleep Sing Me To Sleep
    Arma Secreta, from Memphis, Tennessee, are a band who happen to be a bit of a late discovery for me here on Bandcamp.

    Arma Secreta, and their November 2011 EP entitled, "Dependent Lividity", is one of the more interesting Bandcamp discoveries I have come across to date. Indie, post rock, math, you name it; there is really no simple way to tag this band. The only thing you can say about Arma Secreta is that they are different & original, but also defy description.

    Listen!

  43. I Hate Summer - EP
    by Such Hounds
    00:00/00:00
    Sold My Soul Sold My Soul
    Such Hounds, and their EP entitled, "I Hate Summer", is a Bandcamp discovery from September 2013.

    This just happens to be the very first time where I have actually seen a band describe themselves accurately on their Bandcamp page. To quote: "Tom Petty snorkeling in bong water". As funny as that sounds, I think the description does accurately describe the sound of Such Hounds.

    If you are looking for honest indie/alternative rock with no gimmicks, then "I Hate Summer" is it.

  44. Swedenborg Raum
    by Swedenborg Raum
    00:00/00:00
    Stoned From The Underground Stoned From The Underground
    On their first self titled debut EP, Swedenborg Raum mix it up quite a bit musically. They alternate between spacy blues/jazz & progressive heavy rock, along with hints of stoner & krautrock. There are some unique twists & turns on this record that will keep you in suspense, but can also be a creative challenge to the listener.

    If you are looking for something different, then look no further than this fine late Bandcamp addition from March, 2013.

    A modern classic!

  45. I.
    by The Ravenna Arsenal
    00:00/00:00
    The Wild Dogs of Giza The Wild Dogs of Giza
    The Ravenna Arsenal, from Ohio state, are most definitely an arsenal to contend with in the world of heavy rock. Their album, simply entitled " I.", may just be one of few records from 2013 taking heavy rock into different directions.

    They mix liberal doses of metal & stoner, but aren't afraid to use experimental elements such as psych & prog to flavor their exciting mixture of sound.

    This album is for heavy rock fans looking to expand their horizons beyond what is known.

    -Undergroundhero
