Midweek Roundup: Wet Nuns, New Cassettes, Glossary

This week's Midweek Roundup sounds like the first rainy day at a parochial school... but it's only rock & roll:

Wet Nuns is a Sheffield band that describes itself as "death blues". They've got a single coming out 11/11, which will apparently be available free at their website. They have a real heavy rock sound - reminds me a little bit of Motorhead. Here's a live video:

Here's "No Death"... more available to stream at Soundcloud:

No Death by Wet Nuns

New Cassettes, another British group, plays a punky style of dance-rock... check it out for yourself:

Download and Stream via Pure Volume:

And finally, here are a couple of entertaining videos from Murfreesboro, TN pop rockers Glossary - trailers for their new record, Long Live All Of Us:

Love the soul influences by way of their Memphis visitors - Jim Spake (Al Green, Alex Chilton) and Nahshon Benford (Snowglobe, Lucero)... Horns, percussion, falsetto vocals in spots, it's another good rock record from Tennessee. They're on tour, check out dates and more info at the Glossary website.
