Singles : Ellen and the Escapades, Just Handshakes (We’re British), Xavier, Cokiyu, Stagecoach, Shugo Tokumaru, Straw Bear, Louville, Dead Gaze, Ola Podrida, Little Tybee, Cyril Snear, The Smösh, Psychic Twin

Greetings, readers drinking Sidral Mundet (via smuggling) and eating twiglets because you gave up cheese for lent (idiots).  Welcome to another edition of our “reviewing releases late again” single reviews column.

This week’s singles come courtesy of a lifelong depression triggered by The Fridge Episode, from staple 80s show Punky Brewster. Shit, that is the second most fearsome fridge I’ve seen in my life (after the one in Requiem for a dream). Get an icebox.

Ah, singles, right. In the tradition of being nerds and spending a shitload of cash in Pathfinder figurines, books and dices, we’ll change our surnames to the various methods Dungeon Masters have exterminated us. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED:

Singles Review : Firesuite, Cats:For:Peru, Niña, Ellen and the Escapades, Death Rays of Ardilla, City Reign, Guards

Greetings, readers! You still there? I’m watching a documentary on Metal and when they got to the interview with Ronnie James Dio, I lost it. Fuck, he was a legend. From the moment he saved Black Sabbath from the Ozzy-shaped hole to his cameo in The Pick of Destiny, he was always rad!

This week’s singles are presented by the armed kookaburras that Cognitive Dissonance Records sent our way. WE SURRENDER.

Ah, singles, right:

Greetings, readers drinking HP Sauce (locally sourced and with adduct amines) and nicking egg noodles from Lukin’s while the boss is sniffing acetonitrile (which is better than a mojito – fact). Welcome to another edition of our “off again, off again, hey it’s on again!” single reviews column. Granted, some of them aren’t singles, but I liked them and made my stupid human writers review ’em. Mahalo. 

“Who are these bands?” You might ask from your all-knowing chair (ergonomic-ah from ikea). Well, the names are attached. Give them a try. You might actually like them instead of buying another edition of Arcade Fire‘s The Suburbs (the Where’s Wally Edition).

This week’s singles come courtesy of Jimmy Saville and his gold chains. Man can do no wrong in my book. At least he ain’t Roman “Detritus” Polanski. Fuck that asshole.

Ah, singles, right:
