Still Flyin' is a strange San Francisco collective whose official lineup includes plenty of drums, auxiliary percussion, a member credited with "dance moves" and, yes, a guru. But discard the Haight-Ashbury, acid-jam notions that surely just popped into your head: On a Bedroom Wall, the latest from the big Bay Area band, adds the cheer of Madness to the chemistry of New Order, the oomph of similar indie outfits such as Architecture in Helsinki to the affability of your modern radio dial. The album's appropriately apostrophe-dependent lead single, "Travelin' Man," pushes the pulse just hard enough to avoid the pitfalls of its cloying harmonies and unabashed nostalgia, its beat beating back maudlin worries with perfect bursts of verses. — Grayson Currin, Indyweek.com
Richmond VA. US indie rock band Dead Fame take many of their cues from post-punk bands such as Wire, Gang of Four, Bauhaus, and New Order, with influences from music produced during the New Wave movement of the late 1970s and early 1980s.
Wilmington’s two man party machine D&D Sluggers.
Joe and Jay have been playing in punk bands (Scurvy, Right awayand Aww James) since the late 1990s. After having issues with drummers and bass players, they decided to strip it down to two acoustic guitars. They credit influences from punk, rock, blues, and folk music, and it’s apparent intheir flavorful music.
