Richmond’s Red Money mix alt-rock and stoner rock, kinda like Torche. They play just slow enough that it sounds suspenseful. There are cool harmonic guitar lines and I think I heard the singer go, “I was born with a leather jacket on.” Uh, LP please? Charlotte’s Black Market play an early ‘00s-ish rock’n’roll/post-hardcore hybrid. A little International Noise Conspiracy, a little Hot Snakes, and plenty of attitude. These songs are part of an EP-a-month project that they did in 2013, so get to Googlin’, because they’ve got a “Double Nickels on I-85” worth of jams floating around.
