Show Review: NOTS knocked it out of the park in Philly at Everybody Hits

18 Oct

One of our favorite Philly megababes Evan Raab checked out NOTS as they rocked one of our favorite venues-Everybody Hits-in Philly last week.


So you’re starting a rock band. You have your guitar, check. Bass, check. Drums, check. Microkorg, check. Wait, what? A bit unconventional maybe, but Memphis rockers Nots made it work as they delivered heavy garage punk textured by wavy synth patches to a PBR-drinking crowd at Everybody Hits on a beautiful Wednesday Fall night. Some of the tones highlighted the poppy-but-still-heavy fuzzed-out hooks and chord progressions while some helped wash out the band’s spacious white noise interludes. The driving beats maintained a high-paced tempo with the audience nodding in time under the moody lighting during the intimate performance while front woman Natalie Hoffman serenaded us all with bratty, punching vocals. One part Metz, one part Le Tigre, one part Blouse with short songs packed with lots going on, check out their new LP Cosmetic out on Goner Records.


Don’t miss this badass band of babes when they head to your town. NOTS play Ace of Cups tonight in Columbus, Ohio, before heading to Marble Bar in Detroit tomorrow. More tour dates below!

morning jam: The Magic Gang “All I Want Is You”

29 Mar

One of our new favorite bands, The Magic Gang, are going on tour in the UK this April and just released a new cover “Walk On By” available for free download now!


I can’t stop listening to these Brighton-based megababes The Magic Gang. I must have listened to this track “All I Want Is You” at least 1,000 times this month. The song is a perfect mixture of angst, upbeat indie pop, and 50s nostalgia. The band recently covered one of their favorite tracks, “Walk On By” up now on soundcloud and available to download for free! Listen to both tracks below. Their new EP, aptly titled, “EP” is one of my top favorite collections of music released this year.

The Magic Gang are heading out on tour in the UK in April so if you like what you hear make sure to check them out in a city near you! Tour dates below:
