Danish post-punk band Lower has dropped a new track in promotion of some North American tour dates that they have pasted onto the cover art for this song. Observe:
“Another Life” features some intensely busy drums, noisy guitars, and some really bitter vocals. The end result is enough to have me psyched for the band’s debut full-length. Stream the band’s Walk On Heads EP via the widget below:
Connecticut rock trio Birth of Flower drops a new track from their forthcoming EP, and the song shows and impressive change of pace in their style. Over the handful of years the band has been active, they’ve essentially evolved from a speedy, Minutemen-influenced post-punk band to something that feels much more influenced by drone and psychedelic rock. The band’s punk energy is still there in the playing and sound on “They,” but the track feels something much more adventurous and experimental is guiding things through its 7-minute run time. Give a listen, enjoy!
Savages drop some visuals and a new track from their forthcoming debut album, Silence Yourself. The message behind that title comes through via some spoken word right at the start of this track, which, when the instrumentation kicks in, turns into a fast and driving piece of post-punk with reverbed guitars and crashing drums. The band’s lead singer even finds herself pulling off some dance moves eerily similar to that of Joy Division’s Ian Curtis.
Look for Silence Yourself, on May 7th via Matador Records, and enjoy!
Swedish punks Makthaverskan go a wee bit jangle pop on this sophomore album of theirs, and the results are pretty catchy.
