Defektors - The Bottom Of The City

The Defektors are a three piece out of Vancouver, BC that formed in 2006. I like just about everything I've heard from these guys so far. They have a dark in your face sound that at times, reminds me of early Wipers. There's also an attacking, nervous, punk groove to them, that makes The Defektors one of the more unique bands I've heard in a while. Their recorded output thus far has been Two singles, This full length, a self released cassette in 2009 and A new cassette only full length on Shake Records called Black Dreams. I've included a few of my favorite tracks from Bottom Of The City and Secret Trials, (which is still my favorite song of theirs)  as a bonus. Here's The Defektors Facebook and Bandcamp pages, go check them out.

The Higher Elevations - The Protestant Work Ethic

Unfortunately, I never really got this blog going the way I'd hoped to. I can't think of a better band to get back on track with than this great four piece out of Sweden, called The Higher Elevations. This Lp became an instant favorite from the moment I heard it. If your into bands like The Wedding Present and The Go - Betweens, your going to love these guys. This is their second full length and definitely my favorite of the two. They also have a number of Ep's and singles to their credit. I included six tunes for you to check out. I'm hoping, one of these days I'll get a chance to see these guys live. If you want to hear more, (and I recommend you do) Check out the links below.
