Top 3 New Video Countdown for Sept. 3, 2022!!
First up today are the Starbenders! Their recent review says: "Fronted by Kimi Shelter, who could easily pass as being the lovechild of Siouxsie Sioux and David Bowie, Starbenders have conjured a cosmic blend of defiant punk (such as on their 2016 debut Heavy Petting), melodic pop and glittering neo-glam. Their second album, 2020’s Love Potions, sees their ability to sonically shapeshift reach new heights, while showcasing plenty of earworming sing-a-long hooks and fuzzy riffs throughout." - Classic Rock Magazine
