Steve Adamyk Band (Dan)

June 25, 2014


Hailing from Ottawa, The Steve Adamyk Band have been stalwarts on the Canadian underground scene for the some time now. Steve Adamyk started the band (obviously) to highlight his solo material after stints in The Million Dollar Marxists and Sedatives. The group is now set to release their fourth LP, Dial Tone, on July 1 (CANADA DAY!) via Dirtnap Records.

The group has always been adept at blending 70’s British punk with 80’s power pop. However, on Dial Tone they opt for a more garage rock sound that’s probably best described as trash-pop. Whatever you call it, the results are 13 blistering songs over 28 minutes. It’s a collection of fast, catchy, and hard-hitting jams that connect right away.  I could listen to tunes like Careless, M.R.I., and Crash Course In Therapy on an endless loop. This is a band operating at its peak powers and if you love power pop, you need this record. You can stream the whole album now and then pre-order the new LP.

Steve Adamyk Band, Low Culture (Dan)

January 30, 2013


The genius of the Steve Adamyk Band is their ability to draw you in. They write great hooks, which have you singing and nodding your head in a matter of seconds. Listen to Not A Witness and just try not to sing along with that chorus. These veteran Canadian punk rockers have just released their third album, appropriately named, Third. Fans of their past releases will not be disappointed. Third features quick hitting garage-punk songs that have more than a little classic-pop appeal. I’m on my knees praying to the rock gods (Are you listening, Jimi?) that the band makes their way to Austin for SXSW.

Speaking of bands I want to see at SXSW, you can add Low Culture to that list. Labelmates on Dirtnap Records with the Steve Adamyk Band, Low Culture hails from the great state of New Mexico. The group is comprised of members of Shang-A-Lang and the Marked Men. Their debut effort, Screens, is not unlike the SAB record since it’s filled with catchy garage punk rock. However, unlike some garage bands, they have a crisp sound that isn’t meant to be lo-fi or fuzzed out. It’s fast paced and thrashy but it still manages to be melodic and toe-tapping. Actually mosh-inducing is probably a more apt description.
