Newish Detroit band Copper Thieves — featuring John Nelson from New Grenada and Christian Doble of Child Bite/Kiddo — may have indie rock on the brain, but are more about the big, dumb, and fun …Continue Reading >>

Red Shirt Brigade, “Sporto” (Suburban Sprawl Music/Arborvitae Records, 2001)

It was the turn of the century, and everyone was younger than they are now. Indie rock was still indie rock, at least mostly; the Internet bubble had burst, blogs were in their infancy, and no one knew what the fuck a MySpace page was. Friendster hadn’t even been invented yet. This clip dates back to the cherished times we …Continue Reading >>

Like wearing white pants and spending your Sunday’s re-watching all those Yacht Rock clips on YouTube? Then New York’s Tigercity is your dream band. Gold chains, smooth falsetto vocals, and the closest to Hall …Continue Reading >>

Skinny white kids rapping to electro-jamz uploaded to an iPod are hardly a dime a dozen; every city and scene seems to have at least one. But it’s rare that you find one with same kind of unbridled, unabashed, and downright stoopid energy that comes out of the one we call Juiceboxxx. At last year’s Detour Launch …Continue Reading >>

The Hard Lessons, B & G Sides (Quack! Media, 2008)

Listen: “Don’t Shake My Tree”
[audio:http://www.detour-mag.com/audio/DontShakemyTree.mp3]

Volumes one through three of this EP set from hard-touring Detroit kids the Hard Lessons are already available, and “See and be Scene” (with the “boy,” Augie, out front) and “Don’t Shake My Tree” (with the “girl,” Ko Ko, on lead vocals) have proven to be as giddily unstoppable over the last few months as they were when the band first debuted the songs on their seemingly 24/7/365 tour schedule. (It doesn’t matter where you …Continue Reading >>

Like Death From Above 1979 crashing hard into the dark skree of Suicide, Cincinnati’s Eat Sugar are the result of four dudes who spend most of their days converting their vinyl to MP3′s. It’s where the past and …Continue Reading >>

Apes, “Dr. Watcher” (Gypsy Eyes, 2008)

Apes
are already working on the follow-up to this year’s Ghost Games. But they’re also going to blow off numerous faces when they bring their raging organ, rhythms, and slippery falsetto vocals to the stages of Detour’s Rock City Festival. In honor of all that, let’s revisit the clip for the Games highlight “Dr. Watcher,” …Continue Reading >>

Champions of Breakfast, Pleasure Mountain (Self-Released, 2008)

Listen: “Power of Glove”
[audio:http://www.detour-mag.com/audio/PowerOfGlove.mp3]

Their shlock level is at yellow, with a significant risk of attack by flavor of the month. But give Champions of Breakfast a chance. After all, hearing them sing about sex acts on stages isn’t any dumber than someone like Ludacris saying it. They’re nowhere near Luda on Pleasure Mountain. But on their full-length debut, Champions of Breakfast do have Nintendo all over their bodies. Their ROM Pack ditties are draped with …Continue Reading >>

One minute and eighteen seconds. That’s all the time punk animals the Mahonies need to show you who they are: A brash, skuzzy, flailing mess of awesomeness. And the song title basically wins for one of the best ever. …Continue Reading >>
