  • Goon des Garcons

1. Goon des Garcons - "L.A.W.W.D."
The latest from Little Rock's Goon des Garcons — lately of Foredise Records and always of Young Gods of America — is a moody, energetic industrial anthem about pride and roots. Also check out his most recent tape "YOUNGDIRTYBASTARD." 

2. Ten High - "Cable Vision"
Fayettevile garage punk band Ten High is back with a new EP, "Cable Vision" — here's the title track, which reminds me of "Marquee Moon" and hating high school. 

3. Pockets - "Denmark"
Here's Little Rock indie rock band Pockets' intense, slow-burning new single, which doubles as a hypnosis-aid (and which you should grab from iTunes). 

4. Lil Futa & Chuck - "Fuck Yo Life"
Here the rapper Chuck compares himself to Medusa, while Little Rock's Lil Futa calls himself "judicial" and imagines his brain on the floor. Not safe for the epileptic. 

5. Penis Grenade - "Saturn"
Conway's worst-named band returns with their most accessible release to date, a set of slow, sidereal ambient exercises titled "Heavenly Spheres." 

6. Wolfy Mane - "Chimera"
In which Vile Pack's Wolfy Mane proves he can brag about his DVD collection, threaten your girlfriend and compare himself to Jim Jones all at the same time, with Japanese subtitles.
