More jams from Orlando bands. Enjoy.
READ PART ONE NOW!!
Wet Nurse – “My Nature”
Wet Nurse’s contribution comes from their 2012 debut album, Daily Whatever. The whole LP is a furry of punk tunes with sweet pop melodies. Consider it highly recommend. “My Nature” is lively, with quick drums, fast rifts, and a Bikini Kill attitude. The trio has become an Orlando staple, and “My Nature” is a brief glimpse of their authority. I can’t think of a band more fit to carry the Orlando underground music flag, and wish them luck at SXSW and on their upcoming tour. Without Wet Nurse this compilation wouldn’t exist, and I know they will be kicking major ass for years to come.
Moonmen From Mars – “Babysitter Murders”
Moonmen From Mars throw down one of the psychotic tracks off of Greetings from Orlando (I wouldn’t expect any less from a song titled “Babysitter Murders”). I wasn’t familiar with Moonmen From Mars before now, but after taking one look at these guys’ Facebook, I realize they are the real deal. No seriously, they are space people who wield instruments, and produce tasty cannibalistic horror-core music. “Babysitter Murders” is not a metaphor. Like the band members themselves, it’s very real.
I couldn’t find any additional music from Moonmen From Mars. Sorry. They still rule.
DoGs – “Dead Broke”
DoGs bring the noise and the feels with “Dead Broke.” Like other tracks off of Greetings from Orlando, it’s fast and aggressive, but DoGs introduces a level of depth to the compilation. The song immediately has me dancing in the best kind of way, but as I listen, the lyrics grab me. I’m getting a sense of loneliness and bitterness after the collapse of a relationship. The line that gets me the most is, “How could you even say that my words hurt just as much as yours.” “Dead Broke” is a refreshing change of pace, whilst still keeping the compilation’s vibe.
Hear more from DoGs on their Bandcamp! They’ll be playing with Wet Nurse on March 5. Again, get your ass there!
