Bonfire Nights' one is familiar, with that tight sound.
Déjà Vega - Friends in High Places. Nice attempt, maybe it lacks a memorable punchline, but still sounds exciting.
Muertos - Ballroom Spritzer. Cool riffs
Sewer Rats - Mother Acid. Doomy-sounding vocals on a grunge song, let's do this
White Ape - Drones Clones Ramones, Ridiculously back-to-basics garage indie sound. Great.

some of mine relatively not that well-known tunes from the recent past:
Turnstyle - Fast Wash
Bile Sister - Scent, a mental concept
Iamtheshadow - Everything in this Nothingness
Date at Midnight - Cold Modern World
Faun Racket - Radiant child
And from some 20 years ago :lol:
Мертвий Півень - Франсуа
Ivanov Down - I Walk Your Fish

Tigercub - It's Only Love Following the indie tenet

Strange Hellos - We Are Trouble From the lavish noises and careful vocals of its haunts

Tombstones In Their Eyes - I Want To Fly Slow jams

Sextile - AVC reminds me of an artsy movie soundtrack

Possum - Party Jam this can cure sadness

Blod - Som Kristall deserves to be cherry-picked

Andrew Hung - Animal gritty

Attic Salt - Hometown needs that extra nuances to really stand out

Beaches - Arrow the garage sound with no explicit destination

Great News - Wonderfault catchy for obvious reasons :wink:

Little Kid - The Fourth A clandestine urban landscape

HEX - Page Of Pentacles lo-fight

Wand - Blue Cloud they must be looking to expand the thematic landscape of their sound

Strange Relations - Evidence they've nailed it!

The Churchhill Garden feat. Ben Aylward - Breath relegated to the margins of shoegaze/slowcore

Love Agenda - Just For The Day clearly done by a dedicated man

The Horrors - Weighed Down more nonsensical than ever

Shimmer Band - Freedom surprisingly stadium-sounding

Electric Wizard - See You In Hell should have been even more psychedelic, judging by the band's name

Starcrawler - Let Her Be A detour into a chaotic duet

Deer Tick - Card House Too ''american'' for me

New Candys - Excess Instant success

Grey Merchant - Never Give Up, Anything Is Possible Not if you're speaking about earning money off soundcloud

Martial Canterel - Giving Up ^ :lol: At first I thought there is a Glasvegas singer in the music video

Itchy Teeth - Brian Wilson Is Still Alive It's clever and ridiculous at the same time

Matt Cameron - Time Can't Wait Okay-ish

Partisan - Forget Moody, drags along a bit towards the end

Whispering Sons - White Noise metallic post-pun sound is always awesome

Party Hardly - Mindchanger there used to be a coule of similar acts a while ago

Outsider - Míol Mór Mara got that exposure, which they deserve

Destroyer - Tinseltown Swimming in Blood liked it on youtube, forgot about it

Autobahn - The Moral Crossing I like the vocals

Airiel - Your Lips, My Moouth Not as good as their ''single''

Jetstream Pony - Had Enough This is my favourite of this bunch. Absolutely primitive, absolutely amazing 8-) the spirit of a garage band jamming

Slothrust - Sex And Candy Still fine

Weezer - Beach Boys A bit too silly

Creature Canyon - She's Mine This is interesting, maybe not catchy enough in terms of initial response

Chuck - Happy Birthday an ultra low-key version of MGMT

Dinner - Siren Song, Slipped under my radar a bit despite two previous #1s in my chart, great one

Stone Sour - Rose Red Violent Blue (This Song Is Dumb & So I Am) A bit too much for me :lol:

Swedish House Candy - Last Dream A lot of effort

Gov't Mule - Easy Times i kinda like it but it is a bit too long for me

Only Shadows - Fight Milk to me the vocal part feels a bit out of place here, at least the way it is produced on the actual track

Longface - Ozone excellent!

Gun - Silent Lovers that riff's a bit "London's Burning" but anyway

Sieben - Jack In The Pulpit (Released 7 years ago, discovered 3 days ago :)) it's okay

Varbly Jets - Shapeshifter no accident premium

Montero - Vibrations mushroom sort of party

Palm Honey - Starving Hysterical Naked (Part One) not my favourite of theirs so far

Shame - Concrete sounds massive

Marble Mammoth - Wrecked Ship lovely vocals once again by them

Nine Tons - Ride Leon them and Ten Tonnes need to sort the name thing out, it's getting confusing

Skinny Milk - Creature getting down in the dirt and grease

Wireheads - Wonderful Wizard deserves an endorsement

Pansies - Feels Like Yesterday Trippy

Velvet Hands - Games reminded me a bit of Art Brut

Weird Owl - War slightly mundane

Vilde - Just Visiting consciously malicious

Hightown Pirates - Just For Today jamming is always such a good pastime

Gengahr - Carrion. Briefly charted

Peter Matthew Bauer - Khidr (American Drifter Music) in fact, the transition from a bluesy verse to a dreamy/shoegazy "chorus" works well with this

Shed Seven - Room In My House I am not stirred by this

Screaming Females - Black Moon comes off as somewhat mechanical or procedura

Vida - Masquerade it's beautifully perplexing how various bands use the same or similar sound to mean different things

Then Comes Silence - Good Friday I've charted this, it's very memorable

Battleme - Testament messing around

False Advertising - Hey You there are obvious signs of cool

Hyla - Foreign Tower an anesthetic ballad, which a lot of us need from time to time

Gnohms - Marihuana Is A Lot Of Fun clickbait-y song title, they are yet to learn how to use tags to attract a bigger crowd they probably deserve

Grave Pleasures - Joy Through Death I usually give them space in my chart and will continue to do so because their stuff is relatively harmless and enjoyable

Fake Guns - Night Time lovely base sound

Cults - Night Words there is a certain inertia about their recent sound

Miniatures - To The Lake the vigour of half-light sceneries

Shopping - The Hype One is probably my favourite of this bunch. an enthusiastic effort

Ty Segall - Alta never was a fan of his work, it is tolerable, but the replay value is absent here
