We've posted a couple new reviews. First, Brian Shultz riffs on the new EP from modern shoegaze peddlers Whirr, Around:

Around, however, might be their watershed moment. Anyone who's witnessed the band play in person recently might notice the absence of the female vocalists present on this four-song, 28-minute-long EP in question, and the greater focus on deafening, dissonant atmospheres that barely pay any heed to Whirr's studio work.
Then, Greg Simpson explores the new full-length from Chicago pop-punks Headspins, Spinister:
Read Greg's review of Headspins' Spinister right here.
Headspins play light-hearted pop punk, fronted by alternating male and female vocals. There is the obvious debt to Ramones, but the Muffs and '90s pop punk a la the Queers are a big touchstone as well. The two ladies, Jean Teasdale and Julia Sugden, steal the show by carrying big melodies with pretty-n'-punk pipes.
