Mp3 of the Week: Bang Camaro

We’d like to apologize for what happened when we debuted Bang Camaro’s “Push Push (Lady Lightning)” back in June. It’s amazing what a little hyperbole (“mp3 of the decade”) and a catchy thumbnail description (“Polyphonic Spree meets Headbangers’ Ball”) can do in this town: all the sudden the band’s headlining awards shows and getting slapped on the covers of every fishwrap in town. All of it completely deserved, of course, but in an era when hype can be a band’s worst enemy, we fear for bands who become household names before they’ve got a record out. So we beseech you: hold the backlash, broseph. The concept hasn’t worn thin, the songs are getting even better, and the sheer havoc of their live shows still registers as a seismic shock, not as Darkness-y schlock. Just check “Rock of Mages,” their blistering homage to Pyromania-era Def Leppard and Justice-era Metallica. Or, if you’re man enough, show up for their NYE extravaganza at the Middle East, with OTD faves Hooray for Earth and Snowleopards. Bonus tracks below are the songs those bands gave us, plus the Bang Camaro dance remix (!) that David Day unearthed a few weeks back.
