Rock and Roll


A post-pseudo psychedelic band from Wellington, New Zealand, formed in 2008 by school chums Aaron Cope (Lead guitar), Geoff Doyle (Bass Guitar) and Matt de Wit (Rhythm guitar). Penguins are an experimental, guitar based, rock band influenced by a variety of bands ranging from The Mars Volta, Arctic Monkeys and Neutral Milk Hotel. With an innovative post-psychedelic sound, Penguins often verge on Syd Barret-era Pink Floyd, yet they maintain the striking solidity of Nick O'Malley's Bass lines. Many have also compared their vocals and lyrics to that of Jeff Mangum.

Bridgemary Kiss

by Jake Stone (Rolling Stone, The Brag, SMH Metro)
“I don’t care what people call us; I just want to be good” says impish UK ex-pat singer/guitarist Brett Ramson. “I want people to sing along to it, and relate.” Bridgemary Kiss from Sydney’s Northern Beaches teams propulsive punk energy with classic Britpop, and an infectious sense of swagger and fun. Despite being barely out of school, they’re still the most promising rock band I’ve seen in a long while.

Royal Blood

There are at least two bands named Royal Blood: 1) Royal Blood is a rock and roll band from Boston, MA. Their music ranges from noisy, spastic psychedelia to country-fried cowpunk, and probably would've fit in really well on a college radio station circa <a title="Royal Blood &ndash; 1992" href="" class="bbcode_track">1992</a>. The band consists of <a href="" class="bbcode_artist">Brock Ginther</a>, Michael Brierley, and Erik Magnus, who are all music nerds from Emerson College. 2) Royal Blood is a hardcore band from Calgary, Alberta and area. Ex- members of Figure Four.
