Hunx & His Punx

May 2, 2017


Hardly Art is turning 10, and to celebrate the occasion they’re putting out a compilation called Hardly Released: Bedroom Recordings, Demos, Rarities, Unreleased, and Widely Ignored Material.  It’s 17 songs and it’ll be out on June 2.  Also, part of the proceeds from it will benefit the ACLU.  Sounds like a win-win to me!  The full track list is down below, along with an infectious tune from the great Hunx & His Punx.  Enjoy.

Quickdraw: Wavves, Hunx, Pond, The ABCs, Caveman

Today’s music never meant to hurt you.  Enjoy.

:Wavves – Demon To Lean On:  I never thought I would be excited to hear a new Wavves album, but this 90s rock-enthused gem has me rather anxious to check out the upcoming Afraid Of Heights.  The effort is due out on March 26 via Mom + Pop.

:Hunx – I Won’t Tell If You Won’t Tell:  Famous Class is still doing its Less Artists More Condos 7″ series, and that makes me happy.  This jangly pop tune is off of the Hunx and Cassie Ramone split, which was just released a week or so ago.  Snatch it up, friends.

:Pond – Giant Tortoise:  If you’ve never felt inclined to spend any time with Pond, then maybe knowing that they share three members with Tame Impala will make you want to check them out.  If not, there’s always the chance that this swirling psych rock tune will just win you over on its own.  Hobo Rocket should be out in the coming months on Modular.

:The ABCs – Record Store:  This band really knows how to write a hook.  They showed it a couple of years back on the album Stona Rosa, and now there’s this single, which is almost too catchy to be real.  Little Leaves is due out March 5 via High Dive Records.

:Caveman – In The City:  Here’s a new, well crafted track from a act that I’ve liked for a while.  I have high hopes for their upcoming album, so it’s nice to see that they’re off to a great start.  They’ll release their self titled effort on April 2 via Fat Possum.
