Summer Cannibals – Say My Name

Summer cannibals 5

Portland,OR rock band Summer Cannibals took their name from a song by Patti Smith, which may give you a hint of their influences. Their third album ‘Full Of It’ on Kill Rock Stars, is a tirade of pure anarchic rock ‘n’ roll that smacks you round the chops and invades your ears. A noise so large and fuzzy it will leave a ringing in your brain. Led by guitarist/vocalist Jessica Boudreaux, the band is often compared to late 90’s Sleater-Kinney.  Check out their lates single “Say My Name”.

Kyle Craft-Eye Of A Hurricane

Kyle Craft

It was a chance trip to K-Mart that gave Kyle Craft  his first album, a David Bowie hits compilation that helped inspire him eventually to channel his innate feral energy into songwriting and rock and roll. Kyle Craft is a 27-year-old singer/songwriter from Louisiana, who in his past life was either a glam-rock idol or frontman for a power-metal band. His sound is a swampy ’70s boogie that splits the difference between Dr. John and David Bowie…but his voice is a captivating, armor-piercing howl that gives his first album ‘Dolls of Highland’ its own character, and keeps it from ever feeling explicitly retro. Check out Kyle’s latest single “Eye Of A Hurricane”.
