Week Ender – Penny Rich

The Omega to the Week Starter Alpha, Week Ender is the song we want to send you into the weekend with.

Live long enough and you get to see the good shit come back around again. After a long drought of Indie and Underground music that started off as ironic easy listening dreck before becoming full on in-it-to-white-wine-spritzer-win-it easy listening garbage it seems that the kids are ready to rock again. The UK’s Penny Rich bring such rock with “Stolen Goods,” a gloriously balls out, pedal to the metal jam that mixes punk, grunge and noise to create something that feels a bit like the younger brothers of IDLES on a few gallons of cold brew and attitude. There’s truth in the layers of distortion and we’re happy to hear it once more.

Week Starter – Gaijin Smash

Week Starter is our new Monday column where we give you a new song to kick the working week in the ass & help you power on through.

Hello! Welcome to the new column, all about giving you the motivation to tackle this week with verve and pep and on occasion, piss and vinegar. Getting us started in fine fashion is Toronto’s dance punk group Gaijin Smash. Lo-fi, fuzzed out and catchy as hell, this is the only booster* we need. Turn it up and dance around your work from home office and make that zoom meeting into something memorable.

*no but seriously please get all the shots.
