It’s time for The Top 3 Indies Artists Videos for the week of Mar. 26, 2016! Welcome back to the Top 3 Video countdown!

First up is a band from California. Two sisters who call themselves “Dog Party.” The story goes like this: When eldest sister Gwen was 9, she pushed a drum kit into Lucy’s bedroom (her then 6-year-old sister) and proclaimed, “We’re starting a punk band!” Fab! Here they are covering “Los Angeles” originally by the 70s Los Angeles punk band, X! Here’s Dog Party’s FB page:

#3) Dog Party Los Angeles

At #2 is a 4 piece band from Los Angeles and Orange County. They call themselves a “psychedelic surf punk” outfit. They have been getting lots of requests on my FM radio show and rave reviews (“WTF?” on Interfm 897 in Tokyo and Nagoya, Japan – that’s me on the far right!) Here’ their FB page:

#2) Melissa Brooks and The Aquadolls – Sinus Infection

Next up is a fab track sent to us by Kona Cindy. I guess Kona Cindy is good buddies with the manager of the good reverend… Hey! Wait a minute!? Since when do reverends need managers besides the Good Lord? Here’s the latest from Reverend Horton Heat who are a Rockabilly, Psychobilly, Country, Surf, Rock n Roll band from Dallas, Texas. “Go “Like” their FB page:

#1) Reverend Horton Heat – Let Me Teach You How To Eat

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Japan’s own version of T-Rex 2016! The Walkings. These are 3 guys from Tokyo who are really happening. Reviewers are saying they are reminiscent of Led Zeppelin or the White Stripes. We’ve played them several times on the radio show and I suspect this band is going to be huge! Here’s their FB page:

Here’s Walkings homepage:

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Walkings – Flying Fly
