Video: L7 – “I Came Back To Bitch”
Single out now on Don Giovanni.
L7 is back! I had the chance to see them back in college when they played Club Soda in Kalamazoo, but for some reason I didn’t go. It was a Tuesday night and I wasn’t really familiar with their music, but I knew they were important. My pal who turned me on to Paul’s Boutique and suede Pumas told me about it so I should’ve gone. About six months later they released Bricks Are Heavy and had a college radio smash hit with “Pretend You’re Dead” and I realized my mistake. Live and learn.
And now they’re back. Donita Sparks told Rolling Stone the new song is “about greedy fucks throwing the word ‘rock star’ around because someone made a huge profit on somebody else’s back… Do not degrade the word ‘rock star.’ That’s what I find grotesque – because creative people, caregivers, civil servants – those are the people who are contributing to society… Capitalist motherfuckers are just making money off of polluting things and ruining neighborhoods. Everything is going to shit.”
Sock it to the man!

Video: Bat Fangs – “Rock the Reaper”
From Bat Fangs, out February 2 on Don Giovanni.
Do you dig Joan Jett’s 80s glam riffs? Think “I Hate Myself for Loving You.” Hell yes, you do!
That’s why you’re going to love Bat Fangs, the new project from Betsy Wright (Ex Hex) and Laura King (Flesh Wounds). They describe their sound as “acid-soaked 80s hard rock for the living and the dead.” Ow!

Video: Screaming Females – “Glass House”
From All At Once, due February 23 on Don Giovanni Records.
Screaming Females sound spooky in a Black Sabbath kind of way, don’t you think? Marissa Paternoster’s voice is intense and her guitar is as heavy as it gets.
She described her inspiration for the song to Rolling Stone: “Our shrinking world [is] crushed under a deluge of information, constant contact and social media sludge. It has narrowed my connection to reality in a way that I find rather upsetting.”
It is upsetting!
