Valume Nob

Not sure why these guys opted for a clumsy spelling of their name (wouldn't Volume Knob have worked just as well?), but in any case this band brings together several players from the New Orleans scene, probably as more of a side project basis. Residue And Bones is a somewhat more punky take on the familiar NOLA sound, though there's still a fair share of the sludge that the region is known for. At times the mood is a tad more upbeat, and the vocals, though hardcore-inspired, are less the typical angry shouts and more early punk-inspired. Overall this has a just-for-the-hell-of-it feel, which is not a bad thing really.
