I am Super Ape is a rambling garage rock duo from Malmö, Sweden. Their new single Animals - We Ate The People mixes the noise of The Breeders with pop hooks and good old feedback.
The single will be released on their own label Go Ape Records on April 26.
The Boston Boys turn it up just a little on their new EP Idea of Love. The Brooklyn based roots quartet won't blow up their speakers, but they dip their toes in electronics in the opening track The Beginning and Become Like One. Traditionalists will like the acoustic Between You and Me, with its Irish vibe. Bluesy doo-wop gets an outing in You Don't Need Me.
By putting the vocals are a bit upfront Idea of Love sounds more confident than its predecessor Keep You Satisfied. It wouldn't hurt to use the Les Paul more as their weapon of choice. Nobody will yell "Judas" if they do.

The Who wil hit the road to celebrate their 50th anniversary with a tour. Pete Townshend in Billboard:
It will be a world tour. I'm not crazy about going on the road, but I'm in good shape and once I start doing it -- and I'm still very good at it -- I'll take some pleasure from it.
An of course there's the inevitable question. Will there be a another album?
I'm trying to [look] through my 20,000 hours of complete and utter disorganized music [to find possible songs]. I'll be pulling some songs out of [his long-gestating project] 'Floss' to give to Roger to see if we've got enough to make an album. It might be a big waste of time, but I'm hoping there will be an album.handful
On their last 2012-2013 tour they performed Quadrophenia in full plus a handful of popular favorites. A new DVD, Quadrophenia Live In London, hits the shops om June 10th.
Swiss psychedelic vaudevillian blues rockers The Pussywarmers joined forces with Hungarian blues singer Réka for their I Saw Them Leaving. Using instruments that are not widely associated with rock 'n' roll - trumpet, banjo, bongos - they are the missing link between Jacco Gardner and Setting Sun. Their overall sound is lo-fi garage with hints of surf of pop. Good time music driven by lazy vocals and plenty of fuzz, echo and feedback.
If goofy freakiness is the new cool, this catchy batch of songs will cheer you up after a rough day and get you in the mood for beaches, BBQ and lots of booze.
The Pussywarmers & Réka:
Pozzo: vocals, guitar
Réka: vocals, keyboards
Dug: drums, vocals
Simon: guitar, banjo, vocals
Raoul: double bass
Pietro: trumpet, bongos
I Saw Them Leaving is released on Wild Honey Records. Digital and limited edition vinyl.Tracks:
