Honeyblood, ‘Babes Never Die’

WBEZ recently called Honeyblood "the coolest Scottish duo since The Jesus & Mary Chain." But guitarist and singer Stina Tweeddale's songs are more punk rock than shoegaze -- plus, Cat Myers' drumming is much more involved than anything on "Psychocandy."

Honeyblood does share the same penchant for noise as their Scottish progenitors, as heard on their lo-fi self-titled debut. They follow it up this year with "Babes Never Die," out Oct. 28.

The title track features more polished vocals from Tweeddale, but the pounding garage rock rhythms remain.
