Left Lane Cruiser

Left Land Cruiser's output is brutish, noisy and deep-fried in so much muck and raw distortion that you'll want to take a half-hour shower after a few YouTube listens.

Ever fantasize about vacationing in the serene English hillside? If the answer is yes, we're happy to introduce you to Skinny Lister, a vibrant, Punk-in-spirit Folk/String band that will appease those idyllic sensibilities.  

Fever Fever and Clemency

Jan. 10 • MOTR Pub

Fever Fever is a Columbus four-piece (not to be confused with the U.K. Art Punk band with the same moniker) whose “Beautiful Dream” crystallizes the joy and confusion of fresh love in a tight, understated package.   

Langhorne Slim & the Law

Jan. 11 • Taft Theatre

At age 14, Sean Scolnick started writing his first songs, penning Nirvana-inspired missives about authority, school and “stuff that a lot of 14-year-old kids probably write about.” Now in his early 30s, Scolnick doesn't employ those subjects as inspiration anymore. Listening to his story-heavy goulash of Folk and AltCountry reveals nary any traces of Cobain and Co. at all.

If Ben Chasny had his way, he wouldn't be trapped here on Earth but rather levitating somewhere far above it. Over the 14-year span of releases from Six Organs of Admittance, Chasny's pet project fleshed out by a rotating cast of players, he's made his love for the heavens perfectly clear.    

The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band with The Tillers

Nov. 24 • Ballroom at the Taft Theatre

The Bean Blossom, Ind.-based trio, who played the Warped Tour in 2010, creates Country Blues that's as rollicking as it is rural.    

JEFF the Brotherhood

JEFF the Brotherhood's strangely typeset, non-acronymic name is part fabrication and part truth. No one in the two-piece is named Jeff, but a brotherhood is at its core.   

Drown the Pigeonhole

Damien Jurado’s dynamic new LP is his most expectations-busting yet

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 7, 2012
The story of Damien Jurado’s relationship with Punk Rock seems too symmetrical, too fortuitous and too rare to possibly be true. Somehow, though, all the pieces match. Now 39 and based out of Seattle, Jurado was once a 14-year-old growing infatuated with Punk.

As time trots forward, the number of Rock & Roll dudes who self-identify as monarchs only increases. With King Tuff's arrival, King Diamond, King Krule, King Khan and King Charles welcome another to their regal ranks.
