Posted:5/31/2006 11:13:00 AM by Valentine
RCA, as in a major label? That was kind of weird to see on an Anti-Flag CD, but whatever. Read the full review >>>

Julia Lau: In the Wildflowers and Weeds

Posted:5/29/2006 3:02:00 PM by Joel Edelman
Listening to this album crashed my broswer, but why should you care? Julia Lau does an excellent Paula Cole impression on In the Wildflowers and Weeds, but what does it all mean?

Well, there's plenty of low- and midtempo tunes on the album, and some of them run together a bit, but her voice is so even-keeled that it's not a problem. Read the full review >>>

Streams: Bracket: 'Hold Your Applause'

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

Punknews Podcast: Episodes 213 & 214

Podcast Did you know it's National Podcast Day? Apparently that's a thing. I can't believe you all went into work.

This week in celebration of the holiday I learned about on Twitter all of 6 minutes ago, we bring you two new episodes of the venerable Punknews Podcast. On Episode 213, Adam White, John Gentile and Ricky Frankel take on some early September stories, including the man jailed for posting Exodus lyrics, the Red Scare compilation, the new LP from Rick Johnson and Dan Potthast, the trailer for Laura Jane Grace's AOL series, and the D.O.A. malt liquor. Then on Episode 214, John, Adam and Mark Little chat about upcoming music from the Buzzcocks and Mariachi El Bronx, we ask why Sick Of It All needs a lyric video, and we fawn over the new Dead Milkmen track and Jello Biafra's record collection.

Episode 213 features vintage music from The Flames and Simply Saucer, while episode 214 features tunes from Nik Turner and Tropical Dripps.

You can subscribe to the Punknews Podcast via RSS or iTunes. We're also now featured on Stitcher, so grab their app for iOS or Android. As always, you can send us your feedback in the comments section or via e-mail.

Streams: The Picturebooks: 'Imaginary Horse'

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.
