Wassup Rocker Radio Presents: Sick Sounds 3

Sick Sounds 3
is the third installment in Wassup Rocker Radio's on-going series of free digital compilations. Every week on Wassup Rocker Radio, Alex Kish plays the best in new punk rock, garage rock, power pop, and rock and roll from all over the globe. His Sick Sounds compilations always feature a great selection of some of his favorite current bands. Volume 3 is no different. If you dig punk, garage, and power pop, you are sure to find much to like among these 20 tracks. A number of these bands are big favorites of mine as well. I have raved about Radio Days, The Yum Yums, The Putz, The Lemon Drop Gang, Self-Cut Bangs, Goldie Dawn, Sister Suzie, and The Linda Lindas all within the past year. But thanks to this comp, I've discovered some new favorites that were not previously on my radar. Highlights for me are songs by Aussie punk trio Dennis Cometti, Brooklyn-based bands Fun Time Objects and QWAM, and Boston "peri-apocalyptic glam punk" group Linnea's Garden. Kish did a great job assembling this comp. At only 20 tracks, it's "leaner" than the two previous volumes. But every track is killer, and I appreciate that these musical selections cover ground ranging from pop-punk to hardcore to post-punk. I also like that with each volume of Sick Sounds, you get an entirely new group of bands. These comps are a great way to discover awesome new music for free. And if you like what you hear and want to support these artists, you can click on the "more info" link next to each track for information on where to buy the music.
