Bonnie's been feeling the aggro vibes lately, Milwaukee's hardcore scene especially, and these first two releases have been on heavy rotation.
Midwives - "Two Songs"
Failed Mutation - "Not Normal" Cassingle
Milwaukee's Failed Mutation have had a slew of shows both here in the Cream City and all over the Midwest since their 2013 beginnings. Their female fronted vocals and lo-fi-ish production give FM a particular flavor...the bleach and broken glass taste. Think early hardcore in the vein of Circle Jerks or pre-Damaged era Black Flag. Not something to miss. This single will be released as apart of the Not Normal cassette single series. WHATEVER THAT MEANS! Fork over some cash for it cheapskates and check out Failed Mutation on their upcoming tour.
The Delphines - "Feral (Single)"
And their back. After a long lull since their August release of the single "Careless," the Delphines premiered two songs from their new album, Hush, on the brand spankin' new Milwaukee Record website. click here From these two songs, one of them being an updated version of the previous single, I can tell this new album is gonna do some brain damage. "Feral"'s abrasive guitars and "Careless"'s beatdown drums make for a catchy but aggressive listen. With rumors of the band breaking up (I KNOW WHAT THE FUCK?!?!), let's hope this new album isn't the last we hear of the Delphines. Check it out if you haven't already.
