May Day Cologne Main Station May 2015

This week on Bubble Wrap, we were grateful to bands, pr companies, and labels who sent us new music to check out. Without them, ‘twould have been a thin show indeed.  As it was, we heard new tunes from Rinjin (Norwegian indie), Las Nubes (heavy Miami rock), and M. Vaughan (chill-hoppy with studio production), among others.

Another new release that we really enjoyed was Flowers and Overcoats by The Stakes Are Us. They really took us back to the cooler bands of the mid 80s, and indeed, we spent a lot of time saying things like “now where does that guitar sound come from.” This is especially true of “A Little A Lot.”
