Commander Venus

Just because I can't really find these in the same place anywhere else. In case you aren't familiar with this angsty, hurt, and angry representation of the very original Saddle-Creek sound, Commander Venus is pretty much just that. Frantic guitars, poppy drums, the only comparison could be Slowdown Virginia or early Cursive. Just listen. And then download.

Bad Banana

Fuckin' sweet lo-fi, up-beat, pop-punk from Birmingham, Alabama. Bad Banana is the stripped-down t.v. static reincarnation of pop band P.S. Eliot. Fun, colorful riffs, driving beats, and distorted everything. The Crutchfield sisters (of P.S. Eliot and The Ackleys) absolutely kill it in these two releases. Also check out Katie C.'s solo project Waxahatchee's Demosplit

Boy Problems

Boy Problems were another noodly, colorful screamo band out of Philly, but they are no less unique, if not more. Crafted from members of past and present bands such as Storm The BastilleBoys And SexCassilisSnowingMake MeHarrison BergeronStreet Smart CyclistThe Lady Is Not For Burning, and Shitty Knees, you should have clicked the download link by now. Boy Problems sufficiently began where Make Me left off. They've only released (as far as i know) a tour tape and a(n awesome) four way split with LautrecThe Reptilian, and Osceola. Download everything.
