Iron Chic - My Best Friend (Is a Nihilist)

Iron Chic is a decent Punk Band from Long Island NY that play songs that are acceptable.  Your probably thinking ,"Mike your a jerk for saying Iron Chic plays acceptable songs."  Yes, I'm in total agreement if I didn't read it from the Iron Chic own site description.  In my honest opinion Iron Chic is fantastic punk band with superb melodic power, weaved with exquisite emotional lyrics with a hint rebellion.

Check out Iron Chic song "My Best Friend (is a Nihilist") in their latest video from their upcoming album, "You Can't Stay Here" released in October 13, 2017 by SideOneDummy Records.

Berthold City is a Hardcore Straight Edge  Band from Los Angeles,Ca   I found out about this band from following RevHQ and War Records on  twitter. Berthold City- Moment of Truth Demo '17 has so much power that it gets your blood pumping with full of excitement. Berthold City reminds of the band "Chain Of Strength" another Straight Edge Band from Southern California.  I hope Berthold City will turn their Moment Of Truth Demo into a full length album, and hopefully it 'll spark a resurgence  of the L.A.

Haunted Like Human - River (Come Back Up)

 A few months ago, more like back in late July, I wrote about Haunted Like Human and how the indie duo from Nashville, TN sounded  like certain musicians, and I must humbly disagree with myself.  Haunted Like Human is much much more, after listen to the song" River (Come Back Up)" the first single off from  their debut album, Ghost Stories- Haunted Like Human is poetically soulful has the potential to being a major indie-folk act with the likes of Ani Difranco and Elliot Smith.
