Bugg
Bugg
Bugg is a band from Bloomington, Indiana. Their first release on POP WIG Records is their self-titled, debut album - a ten song rock record taking infuence from artists like Pavement, Veruca Salt and the Breeders.
Dark Thoughts
Dark Thoughts
With 10 of 12 tracks coming in under two minutes and the band making minimal use of chords, you could easily be misled into thinking you've heard this album thousands of times before. But actually, you haven't.

Dark Thoughts finds some separation from the pack that’s linked above by virtue of being effectively straightforward in a genre that tends to grow stagnant whenever anyone’s foolish enough to attempt the feat. So many bands have tried and failed miserably at songs that are frequently (and unfairly) categorized as Ramones-core and while Dark Thoughts certainly embraces an archetype, it does so with an infallible mixture of venom and pure feeling.

Every song on Dark Thoughts would be a worthy single but the record functions its own standalone entity as well; Dark Thoughts is a sublime piece of insanely well-informed genre work that skews as close to Fix My Brain as it does Rocket to Russia.
Loose Tooth
Loose Tooth
You can’t do much better than the name Loose Tooth as a descriptor for the Philadelphia band’s sound. There’s a dull aching to their fibrous blend of rock, something like the satisfying pain you get when you use your tongue to mess around with a tooth that’s about to come out, a sensation that you don’t really get to experience after childhood. “Chewy Skinny” comes from the band’s forthcoming debut album, Easy Easy East, and it’s a good summation of Loose Tooth’s talents: a propulsive forward momentum, and a delightful knack for twisting their instrumentation in unexpected ways.
