Earlier this year, around the same time they released their massive rock opera David Comes To Life, Fucked Up also dropped a companion piece called David’s Town, a fake compilation in which the band portrayed a number of different era-specific fictional British punk bands. One of those tracks, “Do You Feed” (credited to fake band Animal Man) now has a video, in which Fucked Up guitarist Ben Cook tries out his British accent and goes on a date with Fucked Up bassist Sandy Miranda. It’s really cute! [#]

Indian Rebound are a fresh, currently unsigned, indie guitar-rock duo out of NYC. With only one EP and two additional singles under their belt, the group has a pretty mature repertoire. One musician who they’ve particularly been inspired by is Christopher Owens of Girls and it’s something you can definitely hear in their music. [#]
