Streams: Caffiends / Wolf-Face: 'Split EP'

Posted by johng (g+) on Monday, July 21, 2014 at 4:00 PM (EDT)
Image Punknews is pleased to debut the new split EP by the Caffiends and Wolf-Face. The release is out August 7, 2014 via Swamp Cabbage Records/Anti Authority Records/Mooster Records, but you can check it out here, first.

On the split, both bands blast through a series of songs that draw as much from classic pop-punk as they do from punk's nastier first wave. The Caffiends' songs take the sort of Dead Milkmen-demented-kid-from-the-suburbs approach while Wolf-Face, a band whose members each have wolf faces and glasses, threatens to beat people up.

You can find both bands' tunes right here.

Sleep: “The Clarity”

Posted by johng (g+) on Monday, July 21, 2014 at 3:30 PM (EDT)
Image Stoner metal titans Sleep have released their first studio recording since 1996's Jerusalem, which was later edited and released as Dopesmoker. The new song is a 10-minute epic and is called "The Clarity." The song is being released as part of the "Adult Swim Single Series." After NPR asked the band if the song was a lyrical follow up to Dopesmoker, the band has described the song as "a lyrical follow-up to a lifetime of marijuana enjoyment."

There is no word yet if more new songs will follow, though on recent tours, the band has been playing songs which have never been recorded in the studio and may be newly written tunes.
