Drive-By Truckers
Wavves + Culture Abuse collaboration

As always, enjoy.

Superchunk
Chapel Hill, NC
“What A Time To Be Alive” off of the album of the same name due out on February 16, 2018

Superchunk has cranking out indie rock jams quite literally for as long as I’ve been alive. It’s kind of surreal to think that after 28 years, they’ve managed to pump out 11 albums and each one sounds sounds fresh and new. And if their stellar set at The Fest just a little over two weeks ago was any indication, they don’t plan on settling down any time soon which is more than alright in my book. ~ Petey

KEWL
New York by way of Savannah, GA
“This Message Will Self Destruct”

Like garage rock? Or punk rock? How about super fun tracks with infectious guitar riffs and boogey-inducing grooves? If you answered no to all of those, well, go ahead and skip this killer track from KEWL. If you answered yes, get ready to throw on a pair of comfy socks and do that whole “dancing on top of your bed” deal that was all the rage for a minute. ~ Petey

Angel Olsen
Asheville, NC
“Special” from Phases out now on Jagjaguwar

Indie songstress and all around cool artist Angel Olsen just released an album of demos, b-sides and covers this weekend. I’m just starting to work through it, and if you like stuff that doesn’t suck, you should too. Available now on whatever platform you consume music on.

Drive-By Truckers
Athens, GA
“The Perilous Night” 7″ benefiting the Southern Poverty Law Center, out Dec. 15.

What’s that you say? You don’t like your Southern/roots/americana rock political? Well, you better stay the hell away from this one… Patterson Hood and the boys are singing what they’re feeling, and they’re not feeling great about what’s going on currently.

Wavves/Culture Abuse
California
“Upside Down” collab single out now.

Do you like your indie surf(ish) rock fun and kinda dumb, like Fidlar, Orwells, or King Tuff? Well…..here you go.
