Check out this gem from Amherst, MA: California X

Shredding is a way of life for some people. Exhibit A: the dudes that make up California X. Contrary to their chosen band name, they hail from Amherst, MA. Get blitzed with their guitar-driven rock with plenty of gang vocals and tearin it up with OD guitar solos. Their song “Sucker” goes over two minutes without vocals coming in, plenty of time to get some righteous head banging in. They call it fun-rock, I call it F-yea rock. If you dig yourself some Fang Island and Andrew WK, get this on your speakers ASAP. - Hillary Anderson
