Last month, Hartford indie rock band Queen Moo released their sophomore record, Mean Well via Topshelf Records. Since that release, the band stopped by Blind Moose studios in Bloomfield, CT to record a live session of a few of those new songs, some old songs, plus an awesome old B-side “Fool“. Watch below and check out our recent interview with the band here.

What locations do you recognize?

While depraved New Haven fuzz rock act released their most recent record Satan Smile back in 2016, they have still been rolling out the music in various videos. This week, Hellrazor debuted the video for Satan Smile highlight “Ants Vs. Dragons” over at Impose Magazine. Sijmon Gompers describes the video:
“Hellrazor’s video for “Ants vs. Dragons” revolves around a cat headed individual that lords over the entire endeavor as the band makes an eccentric experience out of their humble space… The rhythm & discord heavy dissonance of Hellrazor maintains their rounds of chanted harmonies where the celebration of ecstatic absurdity makes for a DIY art house experience for all aspects of the senses (and certainly for the most discerning of tastes). “
Hellrazor will be playing Crunch House on 9/23 with No One and the Somebodies, Top Nachos, and Lea. Event page here.
