Found Music Friday!

I’ve got a little something new I’d like to start up with you, Found Music Friday’s! #FoundMusicFriday on Twitter! Each Friday I’ll post a blog with audio and/or video of music I’ve come across from throughout the week. Whether it’s something I’ve come across on my own or music I’ve been referred to via friends or labels, I'll put it together week in and week out in order to, hopefully, turn you onto some new jams!

First band is BIBLICAL as referred to me by the one and only F'Em Up Chuck! Check out their webpage and give a listen to a couple of tracks they have posted. Definitely Stoner Rock! 

VICTORY RECORDS dropped off a couple albums to the studio this week, one of which really piqued my interest in COMEBACK KID with their latest effort "Die Knowing"! Here's a video, came out last month, for the tune "Should Know Better".

 

The other band, via Victory, is THE BUNNY THE BEAR. Not entirely sure my thoughts on them, but it is nice to see some out there being creative! 

 

My man THE BUSTAMANTE turned me on to a couple of bands this week. This guy's like the Rainman of new and old music so expect a lot of input from him! First one, WHITE NOISE OWL. From what I understand someone from the band SNOT is in this. Here's the video for the single "Are You Breathing?"

 

The other band he turned me onto this week was MUTOID MAN with "Gnarcissist". These guys just did the annual SXSW. I know the video is five months old, but I just found out about them this week. 

 

As I've mentioned before GLENN HUGHES & JASON BONHAM are back together on a new project CALIFORNIA BREED and they released their first video, "Sweet Tea" this week. 

 

And finally, METALLICA rolled out a new tune this week while performing in Bogota with "The Lords of Summer". It's a demo version, but here's the best quality audio we have of said new tune.

 

Know of a band I should know of?
