Austrian band Sex Jams releasing US compilation (streams), touring w/ Ed Schrader, playing CMJ, other dates
by Bill Pearis
Austria is not a huge country and hasn't had that many famous musicians (Mozart, Falco, Belphagor...) but that hasn't stopped Vienna's Sex Jams from pursuing their dream of making shouty-punky rock for all to hear. A cassette compilation of the group's Austrian-released music, titled Hits, will be out next month via Old Flame which will be their first US release. We've got the premiere of "Queens Club" from it in this post.
Sex Jams are in NYC as we speak, kicking off a string of dates with Baltimore duo Ed Schrader's Music Beat. Both bands, along with Honne Wells, play tonight (10/1) at Cake Shop and Death by Audio on Friday (10/3) with White Rope on that show as well.
They'll be back in NYC for CMJ, including the Old Flame showcase at Cake Shop on October 25 with Potty Mouth, Dead Stars, YAWN, Girlpool, Girl Tears and more TBA. All dates are listed, plus the track stream and other from the cassette, below...
