Hot off the heels of Hipsters 2, Acid Jazz Records present Hipsters 3, a third selection of garage, mod and power pop grooves from around the world. And where better to start than in Moscow where The Riots are literally Out Of Control with their brand of melodic ’79 style Mod (see video below).
The Electric Mess hail from New York City and formed in 2007, receiving rave reviews for their spellbinding 60’s garage R&B sound - You’ve Become A Witch.
Cardiff boys Houdini Dax take influence from Hendrix, The Kinks, Beatles and the Sonics through to Blur and Supergrass and mix it up into a mighty fine blend of jangly riffs.
London boys, The Dactyls fuse garage, psych and acid rock and were described by BBC 6 Music as “a punk band with serious mainstream credentials”. With an album produced by Rat Scabies due later this year, here’s a taster to whet your appetite.
Another London 3 piece, The Feathers are an all girl group, formed in the summer of 2011 after leaving Adam Ants management, this is their debut recording.
Cryssis are an Anglo-German power pop group featuring Dick Yorke from Sta-Prest and Vom Ritchie from German rockers Die Toten Hosen and makes his second appearance on this album, the other with part Polish band Wet Dog.
Tone Puppets are an Alternative Rock band from Liverpool full of eastern promise and northern grit. Resident band at The Lovely Job, Tone Puppets produce a fizzy, guitar fuelled indie laced sound with curious time signatures and mathy prog-outs.
The Scottish 4 piece The Laynes found their direction with a melodic fusion of psychedelia, beat and soul.
The sixteen track CD and Vinyl make this good value- as well as an exciting release.
