Modern Needs - Survey of the Animal Kingdom

San Francisco's Mod­ern Needs let off one de­li­cious fart af­ter an­oth­er in­to the at­mos­phere, con­sist­ing of straight, sim­ple & ef­fec­tive Fuzz rem­i­nis­cent of ear­ly 80s west­coast punk & hard­core as well as plen­ty of crude KBD-vibes. As such, they make good com­pa­ny to oth­er con­tam­po­rary bands like Launch­er, Frea­kees, Beast Fiend or Liq­uid As­sets.

The Worms - Back To The Bog

This Lon­don trio de­liv­ers some new high qual­i­ty bursts of de­cid­ed­ly crude garage punk with a clear post punk edge. Ad­mir­ers of bands like Con­stant Mon­grel, Ex Cult, Tyvek, Use­less Eaters or Shark Toys will know to ap­pre­ci­ate this.

Shit Blimp - A Groundbreaking Standard of the Genre

On their re­cent EP some Cleve­land, Ohio based group serves us ten flaw­less­ly ex­e­cut­ed deep brown pud­dles of filthy and con­ta­geous hard-/noisec­ore, boiled down to less than ten min­utes of quirky, messy joy.

Constant Insult - History In Shorthand

Whoa… didn't re­al­ly ex­pect to hear from those Min­neapo­lis folks again, as five years have al­ready passed since their strong de­but EP. On their first long play­er we get more of that stuff - times 10, thanks to no­tice­ably re­fined songcraft and force­ful per­for­mances. This is plain old un­pre­ten­tious, melod­ic Punkrock with a clear ear­ly 90's bent at its very best. Kin­da like a Fu­sion of Day­light Rob­bery and Su­per­chunk, but you might al­so hear some Echoes of Jaw­break­er, Sami­am, even a very slight trace of Leather­face every now and then…

Hank Wood and the Hammerheads - Use Me 7"

New record­ed ma­te­r­i­al by Hank Wood & his crew has be­come a some­what rare oc­curence in re­cent years… but when­ev­er some new tunes crop up, you're in­stant­ly re­mind­ed why you fell in love with his soul-in­fused Garage Punk in the first place - more than ever, i'd say. Song­writ­ing and arrange­ments are just as spot-on here as we've seen on past re­leas­es, pro­pelled for­ward by ra­zor sharp per­for­mances. Those ham­mers keep hit­ting every nail with im­pres­sive pre­ci­sion.
