Touring America for international bands is ridiculously expensive. Did you know that? If you didn’t, and if you clicked that link (here’s your chance to go back and click it), now you do. It’s a shame, though at least there’s Soundcloud to bring us gems from the overseas wilds of places like Birmingham, UK– take The Castillians’ “Piggy in the Middle” as an example.
“Piggy in the Middle”‘s brash vocals and rollocking bass line bridge the gap between raucous basement rock you’d like to drink a cheap beer to and old-fashioned rockabilly. It’s a genre gap you might not have considered before, but listening to this song for a few times makes you wonder if it even exists in the first place. And if you like this song, check out the rest of You and Me, the new full-length record (via Stockholm’s very excellent Punk Slime Recordings) whence it comes.
