New Music Playlist: Kiss, Orianthi, God Damn and More
Welcome to this week's roundup of the biggest new rock streams from around the web.

We wish there were some bigger singles to draw from this week, but sometimes that's the way it swings. There's still some stellar underground records worth your time; God Damn are a genuinely exciting band who we haven't had the pleasure of hearing before, and definitely worth a spin. You might love HBS at the bottom too, with their psychedelic-inspired groove rock.

Elsewhere, it's a pretty standard fare of riff-heavy rock. And what better for a summer's day? Enjoy!

Kiss "Right Here Right Now"

Rock's most flamboyant masked mofos with a new video. Sorry about the Vevo pre-roll ad, but what else do you expect from Kiss?

Orianthi "Heaven in this Hell"

Orinathi is back with a monster of a crowd-pleaser. Awesome wailing solo in there around the 3:40 mark.

Manic Street Preachers "Rewind the Film"

This acoustic-driven ballad features Richard Hawley and some massive timpani hits.

God Damn "Red Checker"

Fantastic. We come across a lot of good rock, but few songs get our blood pumping like this stormer from God Damn. Great work, send us more!

Leogun "Let's Be Friends"

One of people who like classic rock songwriting with a bit of modern polish. Sounds like this singer is a bit of a Robert Plant fan.

Airbourne "No One Fits Me (Better Than You)"

A fist-pumping anthem from Airbourne, from their new album "Black Dog Barking."

HBS "Baron Robber"

A pretty cool style here - it's like the most hooky bits of Mars Volta, with more measured vocals and a pretty stable groove. Which some might argue the Mars Volta should have done, come to think of it.

What tracks do you like and dislike? Let us know in the comments, and as usual, share your top music tips for us to check out for next week.
