Didn't think I'd be typing the words "Adult Swim" into two posts today, but here we are. Not only does Adult Swim currently have their summer singles deelie going on right now, but they've also got tracks from the forthcoming Cerebral Ballzy album on lock, too. I know, not the most serious of band names, but this New York four-piece actually does reach a new level of ballsy. It's to the point where the word's original "s" really doesn't suffice. The four songs Adult Swim has streaming on its site bring that intense speed and volume any great punk act should have, but there's a tooth-gnashing griminess that can't be manufactured. It has to be lived and breathed by the musicians who deliver it.
There's a white-kunckled anger fueling these tracks, too--even the one about cutting class. It's so good, it actually makes me regret never taking up skateboarding.
Stream one of the tracks from the LP below, and scope the album art while you're down there, too. Hear three more tracks from the LP on Adult Swim's website by clicking here, and look for the album's release on July 26th.
