One of the year’s most think-pieced music stories was the hypocrisy of PWR BTTM, a queer punk duo who prided themselves on creating safe spaces at their shows and were then beset by sexual-abuse allegations against singer Ben Hopkins. New York band T-Rextasy, who planned to tour with PWR BTTM this summer, got caught up in the backlash—the quintet pulled out of that tour and quickly denounced the band on Twitter. T-Rextasy’s music stands on its own, though: tuneful, off-kilter garage-rock with an infusion of personality from vocalist Lyris Faron’s one-of-a-kind intonations. Irreverent feminist punk is a familiar sound in Seattle, and Hardly Boys—fresh off the release of an album called Dear Diarrhea—are an ideal opener. ANDREW GOSPE
