Cross Dog are a self-described heavy, noisy, feminist punk band from Peterborough Ontario, Canada and man they deliver a blistering slab of noise/punk metal on this track from their new album Hollow. There’s the raw, unbridled fury of the first Hole album bleeding into the hardcore of a band like Refused.

NEW MUSIC: Viet Cong – Silhouettes

BW_300_AE9R0300

Out of the ashes of the band Women come Canadian quartet Viet Cong. Theirs is a dark and rhythmic post-punk guitar sound. Like a symposium of Interpol, Liars and Bauhaus, fronted by Andrew Eldritch, sweating it out in a dark, claustrophobic basement disco. Their debut self-titled LP is out now via Jagjaguwar. Here’s the clip for the track ‘Silhouettes’. You can watch the video for their first single ‘Continental Shelf’ HERE.
