Patsy's Rats are a rotating cast of rascals out of Portland, OR playing raucous guitar pop led by Patsy Gelb and Christian Blunda. Christian is the leader of party punk band Mean Jeans and Patsy is the former bass & vocalist of sludge-pop group Scavenger Cunt and occasional collaborator of her father, Howe Gelb of Giant Sand. The Rats craft genuine bedroom pop tunes and then crunch 'em all up with 70's rock & roll power.
Canadian garage punks New Swears emerged out of Ottawa in 2012 with a melodic, freewheeling style and lo-fi-oriented sound. With their 2013 debut album, Funny Isn't Real, members Beej Eh, Sammy J. Scorpion, Nick Nofun, and Scru Bar established themselves in Ontario's D.I.Y. underground, issuing the release in multiple formats via three different labels: Bruised Tongue Records, Dirt Cult, and Bachelor.
