After following one of my favorite bands "Ballyhoo!" on our Undiscovered Artists Twitter, I managed to find Right Coast Records- the label that Ballyhoo, Resinated, and Bumpin Uglies are signed to. All these bands have their own unique contribution to the punk music world, but I have recently been addicted to Bumpin Uglies' vibes. I was driving the other night, extremely happy that I'm able to listen to my playlists with my new radio adapter, feeling at peace and a little homesick when their song "Bad Decisions" came on. Although I'm still in Texas and there's no possible way I can teleport to California while driving in my town, this song is the closest to I've felt to home in a long time. This band has a true talent if they can make me feel like California in dry heat and flat roads. There are very little songs that hold a special place in my Californian heart and this is one of them. So listen to this song, and just imagine yourself in your happy place.
New Artists coming at you all the time.
