This is John G on this beautiful Friday and I am digging how Bangers are writing and recording an album in 48 hours. Though, to be fair, some of the greatest albums of all time were recorded in a weekend: Black Sabbath's Black Sabbath; Rudimentary Peni's Death Church; Velvet Underground's White Light/White Heat; Spice Girls' Spice World, the Soundtrack.
So, while we wait to see what Bangers does with their 48 hours, today's reviews are:

The UK's Bangers have established a daring gambit for their next release. From 6 p.m. August 8th through 6 p.m. August 10th, the band will be writing, recording and mastering a brand new album. According to the band, they will not write any of the songs beforehand and promises to have at least 20 minutes of music by the end of the weekend.
Further, the band will only be making the album available for purchase via a pre-sale that will occur during the same time as the recording. The band says they will not sell the release after the pre-sale goes down and explicitly asks fans to not share the material. More information can be found here.
The band is also going on tour this fall.
Albany, New York's Male Patterns, featuring members of After the Fall, Libyans and Nuclear Family, have posted a new song on their Bandcamp page. The new song, "Everyone's a Punk," will be released on an upcoming 7-inch set to be released on Shock to the System Records.
