    Just dropped a new track, sludgy grooves from Oz

    Yo, my band Whiskey & Speed just dropped our first new track in years. Sweetness. I'm really goddamn proud of this one and how it turned out. It's the first track of our upcoming EP "Better Than Expected". A little less punk, a little more grunge. I guess? Idk, I'm stoked on it. Check it out if...

    The nights that countPhotos 

    Over the past year or two a like minded mate and I have have seemingly (accidentally) created a little scene within a scene here in Pig City (Brisbane, Australia).
