Asthenia & Akallabêth probz one of the raddest splits i've come across. becasue not only is it stellar stellar post-hardcore/emo music but both bands are from different areas of the world, BUT sharing similar soundz only with their own regional twist. holy smokes duders, this split is solid. akallabeth is from the UK and asthenia is from tokyo. the split is being released by like so many awesome record labels throughout the world. dig in!

talked about duder before. one-grand-man-garage-punk-band from minneapolis, minnesota. snagged a cass from him back in july. included was a charming note...which i have yet to respond too. fuk. all songs are written and recorded by homeboi himself, C. Voltaire. scuzz, fuzz, someone needs a muzzle jams...(jk) personal fav: kissies for you, "fucking hate cupid - shit sucks" couldn't have said it better myself. MUAH </3 (also there is a sik mingus cover - whoa whoa)

4 piece punk band from seattle washington. no surprise there <3. ain't gonna lie, but i've been listening to this non-stop since i bought it. you probz will too once you buy it. personal fav: the first track "jealous rage" vocally there is so much going on. the transition at :20 carries much post-punk vibez then immediately back to the raging vocals introduced in the beginning. everyone should be jealous of this band. ;)

neo neo neo neo neo neo neo neo neo (sp), are a punk rawk mystery from Minneapolis. my jaw dropped when i noticed a bobby soxxx cover. lolz "learn to hate in the 80s" everyone knows I LOVE and fucking despise bobby soxx. "times running out chaos is near" !!! / everyone is becoming angry with fear !!! How do i get a copy of this? help a girl out. In the meantime im gonna stream the shit of this and you should TOO!
YEAH. cuz ty... and i totally kinda forgot about him and his tunes. This is a great reminder of how badass TY's musak is. THANKS to the obscenities! outta detroit. also from the duders themselves "A LITTLE TASTE OF THE "CRAIG DOES SEGALL" EP. IT'S ALL COMING SOON. " im pumped and y'all should be too.
ssshittastic band from ssstl (st.louis) mirror mirror are a 3 piece punk/garage/pop band. female vox that are pleasing to the ears. personal fav: bois bois boisss ...it's fucking hilarious. the track esentially is a laugh at the oh-so-typical punk boi. they go to shows, they sport a screen-printed patch with every outfit, so punx, so rawk, ...."it's false advertising bro"
this will be the second time kneecaps have been on PG. what was once a three-piece is now a 4-piece...from the uk. black hair is an album that ties in every aspect of a record straight outta the 60s/garage/rock movement. my personal favorite is pain. the outro is wild...listen for yourself
of course if you've been following me via tumblr (mostly likely not, but whatever) you'd know that i've been on such "listen to all things from Spain" kick. Welp, La URSS fits that criteria. La urss are a 4-piece punk band from andalucia. you can tell by the very first listen how much this band maintains a diy-oriented spanish punk vibe throughout the entire record. fast-paced songs. politically aware, opposition to the gov...etc. resembles the sounds of those popular basque-radical rock bands from the 80s...but with it's very own "modern" twist. I'm literally counting down the days till i get to see la urss in the flesh (5 days to be exact). gonna be a wild time.
i absolutely love the new shit comin' outta KC. (can't wait to go visit next month) warm bodies are a 4-piece punk band. female vox. all members are prominent figures within the KC punk scene...so you can imagine how kick-ass this EP is.
wrung are a badass gritty post-punk band from NYC. my personal favorite "i can't do anything" ,,, because lately i haven't been able to do anything. its currently the soundtrack to my lazy lyfe. lucky for Wrung, they're doing everything RIGHT...because the entirety of this record is fucking RIGHTeous ;O...also where have all these bands been all my life? i swear all the killer new bands are comin' outta NYC now-a-days....good thing i'm moving there soon-ish. (score) I'd keep a close eye on these duders.
Just saw big bill a handful of days ago and oh man was it a lively show. big bill are a 4-piece garage, punk, freak-pop, rock n' roll band from austin texass. (somehow that description makes sense to me...whatever) here's a new single by the brilliant, big, bill himself.
far so far records presents total institution by sarcasm. London based. Not exactly sure when the cassette will be released, so i would suggest following them on BC for updates. looking forward to it though. these mates are creating some super solid punk/post-punk tunes. my personal favorite: figure in a landscape...cause of it's intro...so twangy...like, it could easily be a bonus track on Miami (gun club) or something- ha. which is the fucking coolest thing ever. these duders are melting my heart with that track. <....3
fucking hell this album is stellar. maladjusted are a 4-piece punk/hardcore band from LA. homies pair their california hardcore sound around important political themes. It's really fucking lovely to hear a band who centers their art around the importance of feminism. cont. to educate us maladjusted, we all fucking need to hear what you have to say.
the horns are calling me. fuck, the last track is fucking brilliant (seven people) Lithics are from portland, oregon. A 4-piece band with female vox (aubrey hornor). minimalist post-punk at its best. think essential logic meets neo boys meets chalk circle meets idk, any 70s or 80s lady post-punk band. I mega dig this record.
From my new stomping grounds, ATX. migraine are a 4 piece punk rawk band. They've provided us with 6 raw, heavy, and very angry tracks. Take a gander: trapped inside a cage / filled with hate and rage / this body isn’t mine / when will i draw the fucking line (from the track Dysphoria) All of their tunage is centered around the emotional, physical, && mental struggles that we (yes, you) all experience & they strive to cater to a queer and trans community. pretty badass if you ask me.
