Six Songs We Listened to This Week That ‘Ruined the Family Cookout’

The rare three day weekend is upon us, and judging by your employment history, this is likely a more common experience than it’s made out to be. Nevertheless, you’re probably wondering what to do with your spare 24 hours. Instead of laying on the couch binge watching “King of the Hill” all day like you usually do, why not try spicing up your free time with some new music? We know it sounds scary, so we’re here to help. Here are six new tracks that have been handpicked by our staff who like you, had nothing better to do this week.

Amyl and the Sniffers “U Should Not Be Doing That” & “Facts”

Every day without new music from Melbourne’s Amyl and the Sniffers feels like an eternity. At the risk of sounding selfish, we personally feel that it should be illegal for the band to not release a new track every hour. Fortunately, the Aussie rockers released not just one, but two absolute rippers this week. Even better news: our increasingly threatening letters to the Australian government are apparently being read.

Beach Creeper “Mothmanthem”

If you’re anything like us, the only thing you love more than surf rock is forgotten b-roll horror movies from the golden age of cinema. Sadly, you’ve been realizing it’s nearly impossible to fit both obsessions into your busy schedule. Luckily for you, Beach Creeper have been working hard to make your demented dreams a reality. Some might say we didn’t need another song about Mothman, while others say puns are an antiquated artform. We say, fuck all of them, this band shreds.

Big Fat Head “Spiderweb”

Hailing from the future capital of the world, Ohio, Big Fat Head is crafting a soundtrack fit for a terrifying new era in which the state’s cornfields slowly overtake the entire planet. Their latest single, ‘Spiderweb,’ is a lush, synth drenched landscape that tip toes to the edge of psychedelia without falling off and boring you to death. Much like its namesake suggests, you can get stuck in this one for a while, so plan accordingly.

Conditioner “On Your Mind”

One of our writers said Newfoundland’s indie outfit, Conditioner, reminded them of Militarie Gun. Under California state law, that means we’re required to give them a write up. Bureaucracy aside, their latest EP, ‘COW’ is actually pretty fucking sick. After hearing the standout track ‘On Your Mind’ about thirty times in a row (also mandated by the state of CA), we have to admit we’re absolutely hooked. Blast this one if you’re still not over your ex, or if you are a fan of feeling something for the first time in years.

End Game “Big Shot”

GAAAAAWD DAAAAAAAAYUM END GAME’S BACK BAYBEEEEE! Sorry about that, the latest single from Calgary hardcore outfit, End Game, is so fucking heavy that we’ve been shouting all week. Our in-office ENT thinks we may be legally deaf, and has advised against us pushing our AirPods that deep into our ear canals. On top of that, our doctor doesn’t understand how we got that black eye, and won’t accept that ‘this song literally punched us in the face’ as an acceptable explanation. This is all to say that you should be listening to it on repeat immediately, and we are not legally responsible for any injuries you may sustain.

What? Six songs aren’t enough? Of course not, you greedy bastard. We figured you might be the ungrateful type, so we’ve put these and a whole bunch of other songs in a convenient and constantly updated playlist for you. Click here to listen and dazzle your friends with your newfound relevancy.
