In Ex Hex’s new video for “Waterfall,” the band invades DC in a flying saucer; they beam punk rays from space that turn unsuspecting tourists and sanitation workers into leather clad rockers. Keep an eye out for appearances from punk icons like The Cramps’ Kid Congo Powers, the Make-Up’s Michelle Mae, and hardcore old-timer Alec MacKaye.

“Waterfalls” is groovy and infectious with energetically urgent guitar, animated drums, and bold vocals: the pure joy of punk. Just don’t call it relaxing. Read More

"Bridge to Hawaii" is another hit off the band's second album NVM, released on Hardly Art, which came out earlier this year. Read More

Guitarist, songwriter, and singer Kate Eldridge is probably one of the hardest working musicians in the punk scene right now. Big Eyes started in Brooklyn, NY (although they’ve relocated to Seattle, WA), and has been releasing LPs, EPs, split 7 inches, and touring left and right since 2009. Kate shreds on guitar and writes some catchy-ass lyrics (see “Back From the Moon”). Big Eyes is like rock ’n’ roll but a little heavier. Read More
