Social Distortion Bring Pulpy Punk to Brooklyn’s Warsaw [Exclusive Photos]

We all know Mike Ness is a connoisseur of vintage junk culture. The Social Distortion frontman is responsible for some of the pulpiest songs in the punk canon, and since 1988's 'Prison Bound,' he's written almost exclusively from the perspective of outlaws, sinners, gangsters, greaseball hoods and doomed film noir protagonists.

Slowriter, ‘Animated’ – Free MP3 Download

A man can only rage for so long. After two years of playing guitar with the math-y Atlanta post-hardcore outfit the Chariot, Bryan Taylor has pulled up a desk chair and parked himself at the computer. There, piecing together tracks for his Slowriter side project, he fits together beats, loops, textures and lyrics, emerging with a kind of spoke-sung electro-pop.

The Cannanes, ‘Zone (Dr. Version Remix)’ – Free MP3 Download

Stephen Hermann has at least one thing in common with Kurt Cobain, and that thing is a fondness for the Cannanes. Cobain wrote about the Aussie indie-pop duo in his journals, and Hermann has twice worked with the group, producing their most recent full-length in 2002 and returning for the 'Small Batch' EP, released earlier this year.

Chainwave, ‘Wrap Me Up’ – Free MP3 Download

Having played together in previous bands, singer-guitarist Ian Jacobs and drummer Michelle Feliciano came to Chainwave with a solid musical understanding. The Brooklyn band has only been around since the fall of 2012, but already, it's got a clear-cut sound -- one that's recognizable, sure, but potent all the same.

Restorations, ‘Civil Inattention’ – Free MP3 Download

This ain't the first ride on the merry-go-round for the members of Restorations. Having previously played together in the band Jena Berlin, these genre-pushing Philly punks know all about cramming into vans and sleeping on floors, and while they had no intention of throwing themselves back into that lifestyle, here they are, signed to a well-known label (SideOneDummy) and prepping the release of their second album in two years.

Smashing Pumpkins Wrap SXSW 2013 at Red Bull Sound Select Showcase

As Prince blew minds and brought the funk at La Zona Rosa, the Smashing Pumpkins closed out SXSW 2013 with their own exclusive Austin showcase, performing at the Red Bull Sound Select Stage for a crowd of 350. As mxdwn.com reports, Billy Corgan and the gang turned in a career-spanning set, mixing such classics as 'Cherub Rock' (watch above) and 'Tonight, Tonight' with cuts from last year's 'Oceania.'

The Teen Age, ‘Second Youth’ – Free MP3 Download

While not the first band to romanticize those momentous years between middle school and college, the Teen Age gaze backwards on their own terms. On 'Second Youth,' these Brooklyn dudes sound positively spooked, delivering sweet, noisy guitar-pop with an unshakable air of dread. If you're turned on by the idea of Joy Division cutting the Foo Fighters' 'Everlong' for Slumberland Records, this one's not just for you -- it's probably about you.

John Murry, ‘The Ballad of the Pajama Kid’ – Free MP3 Download

Most vagabond-troubadour alt-country types would kill for a backstory like John Murry's. Born in Tupelo, Miss., just like Elvis, he's a distant relative -- second-cousin, according to most accounts -- of literary hero William Faulkner. What's more, he's traveled the world, and amid stints in Oakland, San Francisco (where he overdosed) and England, he's amassed an enviable catalog of crazy-yet-true stories about drugs, love, religion, music, solitude and Mississippi mud.

Mad Season’s Barrett Martin Remembers Layne Staley [Exclusive Video]

Some bands are stable, built to last, destined for long and fruitful careers. Mad Season weren't one of 'em. The alt-rock (or grunge, if you wanna start some arguments) supergroup formed in 1994, when Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready met bassist John Baker Saunders at a Minneapolis rehab facility. The two became friends, and after moving back to Seattle, McCready tapped Alice in Chains frontman Layne Staley and Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin to help them get something going.
