The Ovens

I did not get permission to post these albums here. But it would be a crime not to share.. quite possibly, the greatest band that has ever graced the earth.
The Ovens is a garage band based out of San Mateo County in the city of Millbrae. They eloquently sing songs about being on drugs, being depressed, sucking at life, and writing shitty music. But they do it in such a monotonic, don't give a fuck attitude that adds to the subtle insanity of these songs. Most of their songs won't reach past the 90 second mark, and yet they have the ability to showcase more talent, creativity, and song writing than bands that write songs three times the length. They sing like Weezer or Ozma, and have the most shredding guitar solos that would make Brian May blush, and contain the dreaminess of the Beatles.

sounds like: Weezer, Queen, Beatles

(taken from their myspace)
"A highly trained group of international globetrotters, the wise and worldly team that is elliottfuckingsmith, spends its time traversing the earth, solving mysteries, and cracking cases. Fueled by their own unquenchable thirst for justice, and backed up by their indomitable sense of valor, this fearsome foursome have been making the lives of evil-doers, and other dubious characters relatively less comfortable, every 3 months or so, since 2004. . . . . . . . . . . We have 2 full length albums recorded."

Which translate to, "A pop/punk band with energy and sloppiness and catchy songs. Fast, dancy, and cleverly written songs. A total blast!"

sounds like: The Bananas, The Ramones, Fifteen, Dillinger Four


Blaupunkt! is a band that takes it's influences from 90s pop/punk, ska, and japanese rock. It doesn't hurt that it throws in the drumming energy and speed of early 90s punk, indie ideals, and guitar chord and progression of jazz guitar. They are fast, melodic, beautiful, and have epic shredding guitar solos above simple, yet catchy horn lines.

Sounds Like: Blink 182, Potshot, The Pillows, Old Pop/punk
