New Garage Explosion!

February 19, 2013

Via Vice Magazine and Scion Audio Visual comes Joseph Patel and Aaron Brown‘s pretty in-depth three-part documentary New Garage Explosion: In Love With These Times! Focusing on what’s going around right now within the US garage scene there’s plenty of interviews and live snippets from artists like The Dirtbombs, The Black Lips and The Oh Sees – including the last ever interview with Jay Reatard.

Three areas are covered – Detroit, Memphis and Oakland – which definitely isn’t something new, as these cities has been the main scenes of today’s garage scenes since the early 90s, but this is well-researched and tons of scenesters are given a nice chunk of time to speak about the phenomena. Just one question: Where’s the coverage of the Seattle/Portland area?
