From right here is Connecticut comes the Dog Faced Spiders with their new album, “Perfect Organism.” The band has been together since 2004 and has gained a following along the east coast with their brand of hip-hop. Songs like “Dog Only Knows” and “High On Life” have a great beat with lyrics that make you grin, but keep it real. DFS have the club sounds as in “Lay Down, Stay Down” before showing a more mellow side with the “OPP” beats of “MTA.” They certainly have a way with words as in “Horrible Things” and “Busch Beach," before the album closes with probably the hardest hitting song on the album, “Say Hey.”

From halfway across the country comes the new punk band, Better Days with their debut EP, “Good Luck Tonight.” The band’s hardcore sound dates back to the early nineties with bands like Face To Face and Pennywise, before punk became mainstream. The longest song on this release is two-and-a-half minutes, but the blast of energy you get with “X Skull Goblet X” and “Cool Out, Man” is enough to get the juices flowing.
After a hectic 2012, Better Days are taking their time hitting the road in 2013. For the most up-to-date information on the band, please visit their facebook page at facebook.com/betterdays314.
