Introducing: The Moms
This is a great punk rock band your Dad could love. The Moms are a hard charging three piece from Morris Plains NJ. Not only are they masters of the mosh pit they also deliver memorable hook-filled songs, often below the two minute mark. They know how to bring the good times to the youth of America. Lord knows this country needs The Moms. Their new 7" Snowbird EP is out now!
The Lost Burnside Project Album
Syntax and Semantics marks a posthumous return of sorts for Burnside Project, the group’s first release in 11 years. This record is the group’s most engaging and diverse collection, with some songs aimed straight at the dance floor and others offering a swirling brew of modern psychedelia, electronica, and dub. After premiering with a free download on Pop Matters, the record is now available on digital and streaming.
The Micronotz on Digital
The Mortal Micronotz may have been Lawrence High Schools answer to The Stooges. Their 1982 debut mixes west coast hardcore with English punk circa 1977. New York Rocker said “The Mortal Micronotz are pure rock ‘n’ roll.” The band toured during their times off from school, playing along acts like The Embarrassment, Gun Club and The Replacements. Lost in a hiccup of time, all five records from the Micronotz are finally available on digital for download and streaming.
Sophomore Record from Eros and the Eschaton
Weight of Matter, the band’s second full-length, is a Neil-Young & Crazy Horse guitar-inspired album, dialing in tones akin to The Walkmen while maintaining the airy psychedelia of debut album Home Address for Civil War. Operating in the realm of the heart, Kate Perdoni and Adam Hawkins' lyrics and delivery manifest the sight of creative intuition, bringing awareness of unexplored possibilities to light and letting the listener know that the journey is possible. Pre-Order available now - Record out August 19th.
Rolling Disclosure from The Paranoid Style
Rolling Disclosure is the furious and unforgettably tuneful full-length debut from Elizabeth Nelson's critically adored garage punk outfit The Paranoid Style. Like Samantha Bee fronting the Sex Pistols, Nelson's coiled rage and comic touch make for a thrilling forced march through the accruing desperations of late period capitalism. Nelson is joined alongside band personnel including Scott McCaughey from the Minus 5 and Bruce Bennett from the A-Bones. Record out now.
Petra Haden Re-Issues on Vinyl
On her solo debut, Imaginaryland, originally released in 1999, she introduced a new phase to her career utilizing her extraordinary ability to vocalize the sounds of the instruments. On Petra Haden Sings: The Who Sell Out, Petra re-imagines all The Who’s singing and instrumental parts – including drums – and tackles all the interstitial mock radio commercials that are so integral to the original experience. Both records available now on vinyl.
