Another powerful punch in the nuts from that California supergroup sharing members with the likes of Acrylics, Public Eye, Violent Change and Ceremony. Here, they deliver their most compact and vigorous set of new tunes so far, having fine-tuned their formula of equal parts hardcore- and garage punk for maximum impact, fusing the unrelenting force of Acrylics and Bad Breeding with the abrasive garage qualities of, say… early Teenanger or Video.Album-Stream →

This dude from Schleswig, Germany already made an excellent first impression a couple weeks ago with his debut 7" on Goodbye Boozy. The artwork sure suggests some dungeon synth/-punk affinity, although sound-wise - lacking the latter genre's obvious black- and/or oldschool "heavy" metal elements - i'd rather compare this shit to recent developments on the intersection of garage-, synth- and electro punk and associated acts of the Mononegatives, Pow!, Liquid Face, Ghoulies or Slimex variety.Album-Stream →
This Santa Ana group emits short and noisy KBD-soaked artifacts, equal parts oldschool garage- and hardcore punk with the occasional touch of Gun Club. The overall impression ain't too far off Neo Neos or any of maestro Voltaire's various hardcore projects, early Erik Nervous and maybe some hint of Launcher, meshed together with some beautiful accident of the kind that might've just as well occured on some random Deluxe Bias or Impotent Fetus release.Album-Stream →
The busy Montreal scene has yet another head-scratcher in store for the discerning connoisseur of weird-ass garage-/post-/egg-/ADHD-punk and oh boy, is that a delightful and quirky, disjointed-as-fuck mess of an EP scavenging bits and pieces from all the right phenomena of contemporary punk eccentricity including acts such as Print Head, Reality Group, Patty, Slimex, Big Bopper or Skull Cult.Album-Stream →
…'cos you conformist morons calling yourself punk still don't get it. We won't ever have a better web with healthier communities unless you change your online habits and stop supporting disgusting and manipulative corporate social media empires. There are viable alternatives. What… but your friends are all on facebook/twitter you say? Well too bad for your friends. Convince them to come along then!
World, Ward, Word, Sword releases May 6th via Big Neck Records.
