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

Streams: Bracket: 'Hold Your Applause'

Posted by johng on Tuesday, September 30, 2014 at 4:00 PM (EDT)
Bracket Bracket is back, baby! Hold Your Applause is the group's first album in eight years and throughout it, the band once again shows just how unique they are.

Those beautiful Beach Boy harmonies open the album only for them to pull out the rug and kick into buzzing power-pop-punk. But, while the band pulls out all their trademarks here, this isn't a nostalgia trip. The band takes their earlier sound and fashions it into something more precise, more tactical, and frankly, more soulful than before. This is sort of like what would have happened if Brian Wilson was a Ramones fan.

The release is out today via Head2Wall Records. You can buy the vinyl here and buy the CD here. Meanwhile, we've got a stream of the album on the band's Punknews.org Profile

Streams: The Picturebooks: 'Imaginary Horse'

Posted by johng on Tuesday, September 30, 2014 at 1:00 PM (EDT)
Image Punknews is excited to debut the new album by The Picturebooks!

On their new release, Imaginary Horse. the German duo kick out thumping, muscular riffs. At their core, the duo takes cues from the blues-based sledgehammering of Scott Asheton. But then, on the even nastier cuts like "Your kisses burn like fire," the band gets grimey and wallows in low, rumbling reverberations that would make any Amphetamine Reptile band proud. This is vicious, modern rock and roll.

The album is out October 7 via Riding Easy Records and you can order it here. Meanwhile, you can click Read More for the new album.

Posted by johng on Monday, September 29, 2014 at 4:00 PM (EDT)
Sharkanoid Today, Punknews is super thrilled to stream Sharkanoid's debut LP, the timely named Have a Great Summer.

Composed of Dan Potthast of Mu330 and Rick Johnson of Mustard Plug, the band puts their pedigree to use and comes out swinging on this energetic release. There are smashing riffs, Elvis Costello inspired love tunes, spastic refrains, and a song about pillow fights. This is pop-punk that keeps something weird in the background at all times.

The album is out October 7, 2014 via Community Records. You can pre-order this bad boy here. Meanwhile, you can hear the whole thing on the band's Punknews.org Profile

Streams: Stray Bullets: “New Prisons”

Posted by brittany on Thursday, September 18, 2014 at 4:00 PM (EDT)
Stray Bullets Today's stream comes from Boston, MA-based Stray Bullets. We've got a stream of the band's new song, "New Prisons," from their forthcoming record Ghost Town Rockers, which is due out October 7, 2014 via Dying Scene Records. The song is about vocalist Jon Cauztik's experience during the Occupy protests.

I served as a Street Medic, taking shifts both in the medical tent in Dewey Square and at some of the protests that took place around the city, and things that I saw there profoundly changed my life. There have no doubt been protests of one sort or another since the beginning of language itself, but I've never heard of one that was supported by such vastly different demographics of the population. Black, White, Latino, Asian. From students to veterans, from the homeless to business owners. Union ironworkers camped out in tents next to transgender crust punks. Grandmothers from Brookline marching arm in arm with teenage rappers from Dorchester. All brought together by the same thing, all willing to listen to and engage with each other, all fighting for a common goal. I've been an American since the day I was born, but I was never proud to be an American until the things I saw and heard as part of Occupy Boston.



You can read Cauztik's entire explanation below. Pre-orders for Ghost Town Rockers are available here. You can find "New Prisons" on Stray Bullets' Punknews.org Profile
