Seattle punk duo Haunted Horses have a new LP out titled Watcher. The two describe their industrial-tinged compositions as “satanic space jams,” which makes perfect sense upon listening through Watcher. You can check out the album’s closing track, “White Eyes,” above. Revel in the post-apocalyptic punk magic!
Watcher is out now, and can be streamed here via the duo’s Bandcamp page.
West Coast screamo outfit Touché Amoré’s third record is easily the most ambitious in their discography so far, featuring some incredibly dynamic and melodic punk guitars and lyrics that dive into the depths of mortality, legacy, and the band itself.
Omaha punk rock outfit Yuppies have a new self-titled album out now. Above, you can sample three of the LP’s tracks, “A Ride,” “What’s That?” and “Hitchin a Ride,” all of which suggest an album that is sublimely raw, rollicking, and reckless. Enjoy!
Yuppies is available now via Dull Tools Records. You can order it here.
Sweden’s Holograms have a new album out this month titled Forever! It’s being released by the good people at Captured Tracks, and I recommend it if you’re crazy about dark, synth-backed post-punk music. Above is an embed of a newly released music video for the album track “Meditations.” It’s a eerie set of visuals involving some sheet-covered figures in variety of places looking absolutely creepy and grim.

California rock duo No Age comes through with their most abstract release yet with An Object.

Rock ‘n’ roll, a touch of punk, and a weird ocarina solo–if that’s what it is…–come together on the latest track from Parquet Courts. The band has a new EP dropping via What’s Your Rupture in October, and I’m pretty psyched considering the potential I saw in their last album, which you can catch a review for below:
Conor Oberst’s recently regrouped punk band Desaparecidos continues its trend of dropping new songs in twos with the single “Te Amo Camila Vallejo” b/w “The Underground Man.” The reunion still appears to be going in full force, with the band’s take on post-hardcore being as angular, breezy, and melodramatic as ever.
The two songs are also available as an independently-released double A-side 7″ that can be ordered here: http://shop.desaparecidosband.com/products/te-amo-camila-vallejo-underground-man
With all of the skramz revivalism floating around the Internet these days, it was only a matter of time before I was talking about some German screamo, right?
These guys are a Münster-based rock trio, I believe. They’ve lovingly named themselves after WWII activist Karl Jungbluth, too. Their new record is stitled Part Ache–hah, I get it–and the nine tracks they present on this LP have much of what I look for in records of this style: intense vocals, tight playing, anthemic guitars. The added bonus is the album’s mix is pretty dang heavy, too! Give it a stream via the widget above, and enjoy!
