Detox Retox – Hard to Swallow


Detox Retox is a DC based band that just released their debut EP Hard To Swallow. These guys have a pretty clean indie rock sound with some nice guitar riffs and an upbeat feel, but what I like most about them is the singer’s voice. It’s not like he’s a technically good singer or anything (far from it), but he’s got a good sound with a little edge. I imagine he could lead a punk band if he had a good scream. Check out a couple tracks from Hard To Swallow.

Detox Retox – Groovebox

If you like this band, support them and buy their shit!:

A.C. Newman is getting ready to release his second solo album Get Guilty. Here’s the opening track thanks to Stereogum. A.C. is a member of the New Pornographers and his last solo album, The Slow Wonder, was awesome so I’m excited for this one.
