The Ashcan email list.



Wolves, Where? | The Camel The Lion The Child

Louisiana rockers responsible for cured hangovers and lost underpants.

Sundowner | We Chase The Waves

A weakened four-chord songwriter’s attempt, Sundowner takes a swing at folk.

Dirty Tactics | It Is What It Is

Enjoy their reckless youth—you can tell they are.

Asspiss | Fuck Off and Die

“Trailercore” punk band fails to leave their stain…er…mark on this listener.

Thralls | Nemesis

Get sucked into a dark and dreamy hole of sonic thrashings. Thralls rockets into a super nova of sound.

The Flatliners | Cavalcade

The group reveals much more depth than one would typically attribute to a punk band, as the years of refinement and development have paid off for these guys.

Superfinos VTO | The Tinman´s Last Request

These three dudes know how to lay down the kind of goods stoners, hessians, and burnouts alike can hangout and headbang to.

Tanlines | Settings

The layers of synth-beats and drum loops were better left in the congo.

Young Livers | Of Misery And Toil

Gainesville punks deliver some decent, ear-splitting hardcore.

Sentinel | Four Days Deep

Four Days Deep has all the trappings of Sentinel’s large, airy sound –an impressive feat for a band with only three members.

The Skygreen Leopards | Gorgeous Johnny

Whispery pop-psychedelia and jingle-jangle Norcal folk are heavy in the mix.

Dave Ford | Home

Ford’s disarming voice and infectious guitar hooks propel lyrics that unflinchingly explore the depths of mental illness and loss.

Teenage Bottlerocket | They Came From The Shadows

Teenage Bottlerocket comes out blasting sing along choruses with more “Whoa oh oh’s” than The Ramones and Screeching Weasel combined.

Oh No | Dr. No’s Ethiopium

Dr. No’s Ethiopium is a 36-track storehouse of sonic narcotics exploring the rich world of Ethiopian music.

The Copyrights/The Brokedowns Split 7″

What you’re dealing with is a raw, pure, relentless barrage on your audial senses.

Broadcast and the Focus Group | Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age


British psychedelia, cryptic pagan fantasy under a cool modern surface.

Evangelicals | The Evening Descends


These are not songs about depression, they’re songs about madness.

Ariel Pink | House Arrest


Ariel Pink is bedroom music: the kind of bedroom that parents are afraid to enter.

The Have Mercys | Great!


The album was definitely unique, especially considering it was distributed on a green cassette.

Big Rock Candy Mountain | Hey Kid


This New Orleans powerhouse makes their LP debut one hard-hitting album.

Casy & Brian – No Fiction 7”


Imagine giving two Ritalin-infused kids carte blanche on a Casio keyboard, drum kit, and a couple of microphones.

Larkin Grimm | Parplar


Her voice is by turns hypnotic, soothing, grating, and eerie. Swirling atmospheres of mandolin, dulcimer, guitars and layered vocals create, as with other recent releases on Young God, deeply post-industrial acoustic moods.
