New Jersey punk rock lifers the Bouncing Souls have always been nostalgic, among other things. The band’s catalog is filled with love songs to their friends (“Lamar Vannoy,” “Kate Is Great”), their friendship (“Manthem”), even their favorite inanimate objects (“Streetlight Serenade (To No One)”). The group celebrated its 15th anniversary with the very excellent award-winning documentary Do You Remember?: 15 Years of the Bouncing Souls. The doc was a well-made testament to the Bouncing Souls, who have enjoyed a longer creative streak of great albums that exceeds those by the Clash, the Ramones, Rancid, Jawbreaker and many more. To commemorate the band’s 20th anniversary this year, the Bouncing Souls simultaneously embraced new and old audio technology: On the first of every month in 2009, the band has been releasing a new MP3 for sale. Every third month, the band’s personal label, Chunksaah, is releasing a seven-inch collecting the three songs released online thus far, plus a bonus track. It’s both new-fangled yet very retro.
