Rad Chicks and Bad Dudes: Kill Rock Stars SaMpLeR!!, Mexicans With Guns, Amanda Fucking Palmer, We Are Wolves, Regrettes and Brunettes

by Landry on April 7, 2010

First things first, go and download the KillRockStars Best Sampler Ever. 21 songs from some of your already faves and perhaps some new ones, too. Go. Do it. HERE.

Next, Amanda Fucking Palmer is up to something dramatic. What’s new. Dresden Doll and current punk cabaret queen, AFP is newly free from label, Roadrunner Records, and eager to serve up a new, unencumbered tune:

:: Do You Swear To Tell The Truth The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth So Help Your Black Ass [mp3]

And here’s a weird tune from her new record project with Jason Webley, Evelyn Evelyn (3/30/2010, Eleven Records):

:: Evelyn Evelyn [mp3]

If Mexicans With Guns don’t scare you with their cheesy wrestling masks, they will certainly make you swing your hips along with this churning

:: Me Gusto (ft. Chico Mann) [mp3]

from their EP, Me Gusto (4/7/10, Innovative Leisure).

Prepare for French Canadian We Are Wolves (Nous Sommes Loups) to stir things up electro-animal style at the Echo in LA tomorrow night (Thursday, 4/8). Here’s a sample from their Invisible Violence (2/23/10, +1 / Dare to Care):

:: Blue [mp3]

On the more easy-going, country-rock-leaning side, Fullerton, Ca’s slacker quartet, Regrettes and Brunettes, plays 3 Clubs tomorrow. From their album, At Night You Love Me (12/1/09, Campaign Set):

:: Post Punk [mp3]

    In her recent Melbourne concert Amanda Palmer somehow climbed up on to the left hand tier of The Forum and in amongst the dilapidated statues and with no mic, just a ukulele in hand, closed the night with an acoustic cover of Radiohead’s Creep. An absolutely incredible show where you couldn’t have asked for any more
