Snatch the Snail

North Carolina’s most psychedelic retro surf outfit, Snatch the Snail, is set to release their warped and wavy alt-rock track, Sunk. Instead of sending you under as the track title suggests, the Avant-Garde nuances in the colourfully mellow track feed the dopamine with the same generosity of Pavement’s album, Brighten the Corners.

While the bent to the point of distortion guitar notes ring through plenty of wobbly echo and delay, the deadpan vocals sweeten the track that has all the hallmarks of a vibe-out playlist staple. With the experimentalism of Mike Patton and the punk surf vibes of Fidlar, it doesn’t take a genius why Snatch the Snail are thriving in their niche.

Check out Snatch the Snail on their website, Bandcamp and Instagram.

Good Korpse Bad Korpse provide a fresh hit of Psychobilly Surf Punk with “Trailer Trash”

“Trailer Trash” is the latest single from the Australian Psychobilly duo Good Korpse Bad Korpse who possess talent deft enough to revive the greasy raucous genre while adding punchy contemporary energy.

As soon as the anthemic drum rolls kick in and introduce Ginger’s vocals which contain the same unapologetic feminine attitude as Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill), it’s impossible not to be drawn into the track.

Trailer Trash contains impossibly mesmerising rhythms carved out by the double bass and guitar; I’ll forever remain in the belief that no one can rip a fretboard better than a Psychobilly guitarist. The face-melting walls of pure Rock n’ Roll may not be something you hear in the mainstream all too often, but it’s bands such as Good Korpse Bad Korpse who prove that the airwaves would be markedly improved with the raw wild energy.

Anyone fans of the Horrorpops, Creepshow, Tiger Army, the Meteors, or the Radiacs won’t want to hang around putting Good Korpse Bad Korpse on their radars.
