The Brokedowns: Interview by Megan Pants. They come recommended by The Arrivals and Dillinger Four, sound like both of them at once, and seem to know a lot of terrible people. (http://www.thebrokedowns.com/)

Tiltwheel, Part III:
Interview by Todd Taylor. Seeing as this is the band that’s been referenced no less than three times every issue, here’s part three of this interview. This time with J. and Paul. (https://www.facebook.com/tiltwheel/)

16:
Interview by Matt Average and Donofthedead. Brutal metal from L.A. who, conveniently enough, have actually been around for sixteen years. (https://16theband.bandcamp.com/)

The Coathangers:
Interview by Chris Peigler. Arty jams that manage to be somewhat political, without being political. (https://www.facebook.com/TheCoathangersATL/)

Fallujah 71:
Interview by Lisa Weiss. Angry young kids. We mean it. They’re not going to be even close to seventy one any time soon.
