THIS ONE TIME AT BANDCAMP: Volume 9
I haven’t spent a ton of time in other cities, but I have a feeling that I am a DC girl through and through. We have a thriving music scene, a beautiful city, and a diverse populace. I am a firm believer that there is a little bit of something for everyone in the nation’s capital.
Undone Ep by LD-50’s
The LD-50s: The LD-50s are an awesome noise rock, shoegaze outfit out of northern Virginia. Considering their whole Undone EP was recorded in a bedroom using a Guitar Hero microphone, it has that lovely fuzzy quality that you come to cherish when you spend a lot of time on Bandcamp. It’s fast, it’s loud, and definitely mosh-worthy. If you like the LD-50s, you should also check out their other recording project called Shirt/Pants, which is more along the lines of garage punk than psychedelic shoegaze.
RIYL: Early Cloud Nothings
Favorite Track: “Undone”
Bad Brother by Two Inch Astronaut
Two Inch Astronaut: Two Inch Astronaut makes me want to run around and smash things in a true DC hardcore punk fashion. If Two Inch Astronaut had been around in the ’80s, they probably would have played at the old 9:30 Club on F St. But since that no longer exists, you can find them playing a lot of house shows in the area. Their full length, Bad Brother, comes to us courtesy of Exploding in Sound Records and is distributed by Dischord, so you know it has to be good.
RIYL: Something between Yuck and Minor Threat
Favorite Track: “little short guy”
Slide To Unlock by Harness Flux
Harness Flux: I get Lou Reed/Velvet Underground vibes when I listen to Harness Flux’s newest single “Slide to Unlock.” Maybe the phrase “slide to unlock” is this generation’s “peel slowly and see.” Or maybe my Velvet Underground obsession is now clouding my judgment. Regardless of whether or not Harness Flux could have hung out in the Factory in a former life, you should know the facts. The music is the solo work of John Masters, who previously made music with the band Metropolitain during the ’00s garage rock surge.
RIYL: Sonic Youth, Pavement
Favorite Track: “Slide to Unlock”

"One guy gets up with guitar, microphone, and magical effects box and cuts loose. Loose is the key word, but in that positive way where the music is expansive and atmospheric, yet fully rocking in a spacey psychedelic style."
