NJ indie rock outfit Screaming Females is celebrating their 10th year as a band, and they're celebrating with one of their more accessible, catchy records to date.
With tracks like "Surface Envy" being let loose on the public like an escaped zoo animal, I think it's safe to say Sleater-Kinney's return from an almost 10-year hiatus has been an explosive one. While the wailing vocals and frantic guitar freakouts here aren't the band's wildest moment on record, the end result is undeniably fun and visceral.
The band plans to drop what is effectively its comeback album on January 20th via Sub Pop Records. The title: No Cities to Love.
Joyce Manor drops what I think is their most melodic and accessible album yet.
Hardcore punk revivalists OFF! stays in their comfort zone on this latest record of theirs, but I've gotta admit it sounds pretty freakin' good.
Big Ups' Eighteen Hours of Static combines numerous styles of underground rock music to create one of the most cutting, satirical rock records of this year. Think Minor Threat, Slint, D.R.I., and Dead Milkmen coming to a fantastic compromise on a collaborative album.
An incredibly grimy combination of punk rock, rock 'n' roll, and death metal come together on the new Coffin Dust album that'd dropping next week via Unholy Anarchy Records & Distro. Stream one of the tracks from it above. It's one of the most blistering tracks on the album, and is too gruesome to deny. Enjoy!
While Against Me! might have a renewed sense of purpose in its focus on transgender topics, the band's instrumentation hasn't been exciting since As The Eternal Cowboy.
