In early May, indie rock cult favorites Voxtrot released a reissue of their two 2000s EPs titled Early Music, now followed by Cut from the Stone, a collection of rarities, B-sides, and previously unreleased tracks.
The album’s key song is the undeniably sensual and haunting “Berlin, Without Return”, the band’s last single before they disappeared for more than 10 years. It is also worth highlighting the acoustic version of the group’s hit “The Start of Something”, the demo version of “Your Biggest Fan” and the absolutely wonderful “Fifteen Minutes”.

Having teased us already with the single “Satellite”, Fake Palms unleash another stunning cut, a short and punchy ripper “Visions”. It is taken from their upcoming album Lemons, set for release on September 16 via Hand Drawn Dracula.
Talking about the song, Michael le Riche, the artist behind the project, says: “It is the sound of power chords and an overactive right arm. No more intricate, overly complex guitar parts or different time signatures. It’s Buzzcocks or the Dead Boys at its core, angular and jangly. Musically, it’s the most direct thing I’ve ever done. No hiding behind walls of reverb, mutating time signatures, or vague lyrics”.
Any new song from Brooklyn art punk group BODEGA is always an event for us, so we were pleasantly surprised to find a fresh Xtra Equipment EP this morning.
This additional release includes B-sides and bonus tracks recorded throughout 2020-2021 along with the rest of the songs that made it to their amazing latest album Broken Equipment, a masterful collection of creative, propulsive and unstoppable numbers.
BODEGA is also an exceptional live band, and starting from today they have returned on the road again, with many shows already scheduled in the USA and in the UK later this year.
Make sure to catch them live if you have a chance, because every concert is super dynamic, completely unique, shapeshifting and always featuring hits, rarities and tons of surprises. Also, an average length of the set is approximately 80-100 minutes. Find more information about the dates and tickets here.
