      Late 90s alt-rockers Eve 6 return with their first new music in almost nine years. The extremely catchy hooks the band has been known for are back. Lyricist/sing Max Collins has also with a return to form on his excellent lyrics with lines like "wayward jehova/ask for a corona/ in the ambulance. The growth here seems to be a bit of the electronica influence from Collins' side project, Fitness, and his vocals, which sound more like Scott Weiland than the teen we know for singing the heart in a blender song.

      A little more laid back than some of eve 6's prior work, we'll see where the rest of the EP goes when it's released this summer.

      At the risk of just posting every new Wargasm single as they drop, UK duo Wargasm is back with a new single that continues their genre mash-up goodness. Backyard Bastards evokes feelings of Treats era Sleigh Bells. Like Sleigh Bells, the programmed drum beats sound like the fall out of the sky as the punctuate some super distorted guitar riffs. But noise rock is just one layer of this track, which includes Sam Matlock's growls and shouts along side Milkie Way's super smooth cleans.

      Lyrically, the band seems to take a step into politics just a bit rather than just the general rage of their past efforts with selections like

      When you're tired of living for these bastards
      I'll teach you how to kill your gods
      and hunt your masters
      I'm sick of feeling but this feeling's too strong
      I wanna kill somebody but I know it's wrong

      A section that may speak a lot to fellow young people like them, who feel they've been dealt a raw hand by a generation that swam in comfort in excess in pervious decades.

      For fans of Sleigh Bells, My Ticket Home and Papa Roach.
