After 20 years influential underground rockers Magnolia Thunderpussy finally get a proper release!

Bazerk- I heard Y’all Like Violence (The Rage Album)- If you’re looking for a disc to shuffle in with your new Jack Johnson CD, this sho ain’t it, but if you’ve been looking for a new sound to go with a classic Rage Against the Machine album, then this is it.

Louis XIV - Illegal Tender- Louis XIV has definite glam leanings, and a listen to Illegal Tender hearkens to the likes of John Kongos, Gary Glitter, Queen, the Sweet, T. Rex and naturally, David Bowie.

Hermano - Dare I Say - Former Kyuss frontman John Garcia delivers once again with Hermano's sophomore effort. 

Bill - Batman - Jack Osbourne's recording debut! An act so strange the underground isn't even ready for him.

Tearabyte - Gloom Factory- This is, without a doubt, a CD for any metal fan. 

Voodoo Glow Skulls – Addiccion, Tradicion, Y Revolucion - A first-rate addition to to any ska-punk fans colllection.

Psychaesthetic- Industrial heaviness from antiMusic's very own Brad Podray!

Tub Ring -Just when I thought At the Drive In changed the face of punk, Tub Ring came and slapped me in my silly little face.

The Oranges Band - The Oranges Band is as good as any of the ever-growing force of “The” garage bands.


Pushing Red Buttons - an eclitic mix of 70s inspired rock

Billy Butcher  -Billy Butcher created an album of dumb, loud rock and roll.  The way it should be.
