I’m not even sure how I stumbled across this but bless Bandcamp for helping me find the most amazing music from around the world every day. This album from Berlin rockers Scream of the Butterfly sounds like a cross between QUOTSA and Stone Temple Pilots, with a dash of Deep Purple sprinkled in for fun.
Modern rock and roll with a 90s groove and little melodic pop edge a winning combination in IGNITION. Standout tracks: Solid Ground Shaking, Missed the Brake, Liquor Store.
Check it out for yourself!

I’ll bet you thought I was going to say Tool, didn’t you? My favorite band’s long awaited album Fear Inoculum dropped on the same day as this masterpiece, but this is the one that moved me misty eyed.
Lana Del Rey is Mazzy Star, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Alanis Morissette rolled up into one silken-voiced beautifully pouty package, and this album, I’m not even sure what to say about it, except that it’s jaw-droppingly beautiful, heartbreaking, intimate and real. It’s my pick of the week. Put it on and feel something.
Standout tracks: Fuck it I love you, Doin’ Time (Sublime cover), Bartender, Happiness is a butterfly

My good friends Rolling Vertigo and I have done a killer cover of a Cult classic! You may remember Deb from our previous covers Missionary Man and She Bop. This time her hubs Brian, who mastered The Answer is None joins us on drums and mixed the song as well. Rounding out the foursome is Joe Verdi on Bass. Enjoy!
