Streams: Entropy: “All Work, No Plagiarism”

Posted by johng on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 at 4:00 PM (EDT)
Entropy Today's stream comes from Orange County, New York-based Entropy. We've got a stream of the band's new release, All Work, No Plagiarism.

On the release, the band blasts though hyper-short tunes influenced by the likes of modern hardcore champions including Paint it Black and Cloak/Dagger. But, while the musical backing comes from the east coast, the band's vocals are pure 80's California punk. Hints of Mike Muir and Ron Reyes are found in vocalist Brian Lawrence's voice as he screams about ecstasy at the Circle K. This is hardcore that doesn't forget to be punk.

You can find the pre-sale here. Meanwhile, you can find the new album on the band's Punknews.org Profile

Minus The Bear Minus the Bear are streaming their forthcoming album Lost Loves over at Pitchfork. The album is due out October 7, 2014 via Big Scary Monsters and features 10 tracks with a few that have been remastered and re-recorded. Bassist Cory Murchy told Pitchfork:

Inevitably some of your favorite songs are going to be cut in the necessity of creating the right sequence for that particular time. Regardless of the reason they weren't included, it wasn't for lack of love and appreciation of the songs themselves.

Media: Restorations: “Tiny Prayers”

Posted by kira on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 at 2:00 PM (EDT)
Restorations Noisey is streaming another new track from Restorations from their forthcoming album LP3, due out October 28, 2014 via Side One Dummy Records. The song is called "Tiny Prayers." Frontman Jon Loudon told Noisey in an interview:

[This song] was probably the fastest one we wrote for LP3. I think we started and finished it in maybe one practice session? Yeah, "Tiny Prayers" is pretty much Restorations on auto-pilot, this distilled example of the band.

Interviews: Dean Clean (The Dead Milkmen)

Posted by johng on Tuesday, September 30, 2014 at 8:00 PM (EDT)
Image Philadelphia's most famous punk band, The Dead Milkmen, are about to release their new album Pretty Music for Pretty People. The album is one of the group's most frantic, jumpy, twisted releases to date. The band flips off mainstream pop, ganks a Stooges title and, as always, take a couple of kidney punches at Reagan.

Because the band is on the verge of releasing a new, perverse marvel, features editor John Gentile spoke to drummer Dean Clean about the new LP, Tastykakes, playing shows in cemeteries and another famous Philadelphian band.
