I know being up Australia's ass is the big thing right now (and for good reason), but if you're not always about buying American then you should know that Canada's been really killing it lately, also. Cold Warps were easily one of the best bands that I heard from Canada all last year, and someone finally took their two demo tapes (from '09 and '10) and pressed each of them onto their own side of a 12" 45. The worn-ass picture of pre-fringe-jacket Who on the sleeve is no joke; if you're into bands like Bad Sports and White Wires, and think maybe turning one of them out a bit more 'mod' sounds like a neat idea, then hearing Cold Warps for the first time oughta quickly have you doing backflips, or something. The two songs I've posted below are my own vinyl rips, but you can hear the rest of the songs (including their minimal-effort cover of Cheap Trick's "Southern Girls") on their bandcamp ---> coldwarps.bandcamp.com checkk ittt...
