The Mountain Goats The Mountain Goats have a song on the recently released soundtrack to the summer film, Paper Town. The track is called "Used to Haunt" and you can check it out below.

The song, recorded during the sessions for 2011's All Eternals Deck, was shelved due to sequencing issues. Says frontman John Darnielle, "I wanted to write a song about memory, the sweet and the sad parts together. benching it was really hard for us (but one must sacrifice all in favor of a working sequence) and we’re really glad it’s out there now!" The band released Beat the Champ earlier this year.

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
