Image This is John G bringing you a Monday review update. This weekend I was at this is hardcore fest. Outside, one of the port-o-potties had leaked, resulting in a pool of human waste and blue liquid. Kids were surrounding the pool and daring each other to roll in it. SOME DID. What's the nastiest thing you ever saw at a concert?

Streams: Earth Girls: 'Someone I'd Like to Know'

Posted by johng on Monday, July 27, 2015 at 4:00 PM (EDT)
Earth Girls Today, Punknews is excited to debut the new EP by Chicago, IL-based Earth Girls. On the new 7-inch, Someone I'd Like to Know, the band snaps together a killer merger of the Ramones' softer side with the jittery snap of The Rezillos. Throw in a little bit of '90s Slumberland influence and a girtty garage rock facade, and you've got a pretty rockin' eight minutes of summer here. Liz Panella, who was in Libyans, fronts the band, and while this is a little more bubbly than Libyan's hardcore slashing, she keeps a good deal of that harder edge underneath this bopping sheen.

The release is out soon via Dirt Cult Records and you can pre-order here. Meanwhile, you can listen to the whole thing right now on the band's Punknews.org Profile
