The Ar-Kaics

Introducing "She Does Those Things To Me" the debut 7" from Richmond, VA's The Ar-Kaics! Out now on speakertree records.

Patty, Kevin, and Johnny make troglodyte, teenbeat garage-punk with enough primitive grit to rival your favorite pebbles, nuggets, and back-from-the-gravers.  Their debut single unleashes two essential scorchers into the wild.

"She Does Those Things to Me" delivers a catchy 4-chord foundation before pummeling you with buzzsawing guitars, pounding drums, and a full-on throaty wail.  B-sider "Don't Need Your Love" is just as catchy, coated in lo-fi snarl with enough sentimentality and twang to really mean it. 

Listen below to "She Does Those Things To Me" and order here.  Now shipping!

coming soon: Adam Widener - Vesuvio Nights LP (teaser)

Adam Widener's debut album, Vesuvio Nights, is at the pressing plant now! After a string of punchy, highly-addictive singles, Adam Widener (ex-Bare Wires, Zygoteens) is about to hit us with his 14-song album.  These songs are all earworms! If Richard Hell were backed by Devo instead of the Voidoids, this is the kind of catchy, mod punk/powerpop jams you'd be hearing.

The cover art is above.  The album will be available this fall on speakertree, but for now, here's a teaser trailer to get ya ready.  Dig!
