  3. Brooklyn, NY indie-dance band Rubblebucket has a new album coming out in August called “Survival Sounds”. They have released “Carousel Ride” and it’s pretty catchy. Curious to see how the rest of the album will sound.


  4. For some reason I thought the name of this band was Honcho and after a few curious google image searches realized that Honcho was in fact a gentleman’s gay pornography mag. How bout that.

    The band BRONCHO is a punk/garage-rock band out of the Sooner State. They got some good stuff. You should listen to it.

    "Class Historian" below is from their upcoming album "Just Enough Hip To Be A Woman" due out September 16th.

  6. An excellent and very funky Tiny Desk Concert from the band “Moon Hooch”.

    "The band is saxophonists Mike Wilbur and Wenzl McGowen, and drummer James Muschler. They all studied in New York at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, and every single moment of every song I’ve ever seen them perform has been full throttle. They call their music "cave music," taking the best elements of electronica — the brutal stops, starts and shifts — and performing those unnaturally precise hairpin turns organically by blowing on horns and banging on drums. This for the boldness in all of us. Embrace Moon Hooch." - Bob Boilen
