Crown Imperial — Crown Imperial


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Not much more than a year-old, Norman’s Crown Imperial already proves it’s a force to be reckoned with, on its self-titled debut. In just 16 minutes, the band flexes a knack for versatility, an eye for cohesiveness and an ear for massively addictive melodies.

VOTD: Mmm, delicious ...

Like Broncho? Then you’ll probably also like Cymbals Eat Guitars.

New York indie punks Cymbals Eat Guitars appears to be a band very much worth seeing live. Especially if you value things like fireworks, car-window boobies, smashing car windows, punching dads in the face, and distorted guitars. All of which appear in this video for the song “Keep Me Waiting,” directed by Adam Kurland.

Kids these days. You never know when they’ll try to run you over with a car. Watch:

Cloud Nothings — Attack on Memory

Don’t be fooled by the title. This punk gem harkens back to days of plenty.


Rock

Matt Carney
It’s pretty tempting to call “Attack on Memory,” the latest album by Cleveland punks Cloud Nothings the work of a punkist, that being its obviously talented front man Dylan Baldi. That’s a compliment, I promise.

SXSW: The Buffalo Lounge: The Boom Bang

They came. They boomed. They bung.

They may not be aiming, high, but The Boom Bang are sure realistic.

Singer James Smith announced to The Buffalo Lounge earlier this evening that the garage-housed four-piece were “probably the worst band to play here all night.” He was kinda right, but that didn’t make their set any less fun. 

Smith mumbled his way through their usual schtick: noisy, propulsive rock styled after The Ramones’ sonic blitz and Andrew W.K.’s intentionally stupid revelry. It was a tie-loosening; a rowdy break in between two much headier bands — The Defining Times and The Non — that brokered the evening’s bill of rock acts nicely.

The show ended with a brief episode involving the sound guy, who chased a fan off the stage when the latter yelled “Fuck you!” into a microphone, shortly after McKenzie and drummer Brian Whetstone traded places for a final, scuzzy jam. If ever there was a better end to a Boom Bang show, I wasn’t there for it.
