Listen & Love It: The Shondes

The Shondes are a Brooklyn-based band that remind me a bit of Sleater-Kinney with their strong female vocals and pro-lady rock n' roll attitude; but there's a twist. The band throws in violin and ethnic melodies, for an unusual punk-melodic-traditional combo that doesn't sound like anything else right now. More often than not, they are powerful and driving, though sometimes a bit too bombastic for my garage-y tastes. Either way, their album The Red Sea is definitely worth exploring.

You can stream the album here.
