Rolling Stone lists the 40 greatest punk albums of all time

Source: Brooklyn Vegan

Last month, Rolling Stone ranked the 40 best emo albums of all time, and today they’re back with the 40 best punk albums of all time. Now, this is the same magazine that told you John Cougar Mellencamp, Sting and Jackson Browne all had some of the 100 best albums of the 1980s and Black Flag and Minor Threat did not, so it’d be understandable if you don’t care what they think the best punk albums of all time are, but this list is actually rock solid…

Philly’s Split/Red Makes a Bold First Impression

Source: Rock On Philly

Local punk band Split/Red recently released their debut album Serious Heftwhich packs a noisy punch with influences from the Fugazi-era. Loud, boisterous vocals from Nebadon Adams, spastic riffs from Stephen Buono and Travis Woodson, and a killer bass and drum section from Matt Engle and Ricardo Lagomasino respectively, make up a must-listen-to six songs release.

“Manifest Blasphemy” opens up with piercing guitar and immediately grabs your attention with its manic demeanor. Adams exclaims “My heaven is your hell!” and the guitar shrieks before going into a distorted and mind-melting solo. A churning verse and chorus melt into ...

Album Review: Dub Thompson – 9 Songs

Source: Rock On Philly

Dub Thompson, 19-year-old duo Matt Pulos and Evan Laffer, have recently released their debut album, 9 Songs, on Dead Oceans. Don’t be fooled by the record’s title — there are only 8 tracks, each possessing their own respective unique wit, raising many eyebrows. Is this post-hardcore? Is this lo-fi punk? Or is this just a scuzzed out post-punk ballad?

Call it what you will, but 9 Songs, it’s clear that the duo have influences embedded in the likes of 80’s alternative/noise rock classics such as Fugazi and Sonic Youth, electronic pioneers Kraftwerk, and as ...

Greys – Pretty Grim

Greys

What is going on in Canada? Between Fucked Up, the Dirty Nil, the Beverlys, Japandroids and, most importantly at the moment, Greys, it seems like our neighbors up north are committed to holding the tattered punk flag high. Greys’ track “Pretty Grim” is off of the band’s upcoming full-length album If Anything (out June 17th via Carpark) and it’s a pretty good primer on what you can expect from the rest of the record once it drops. The sound is powerful and melodic, and while they can still get frenetic when they want to, these four are generally ...

The line was long and the majority of the crowd was…short. As we walked up to the Black Cat last Saturday to see Jacuzzi Boys, King Tuff, and Wavves, we were met with a wide-ranging crowd in terms of age. There were old D.C. punks who clearly had been frequenting the pit since Fugazi, masses […]

Sunwolf’s new single Push It; new EP October 8th

Source: The Deli Magazine

DC’s Sunwolf, a three-piece "seeking both the hazy fuzz of The Seeds and the asymmetrical aggression of Sonic Youth," is releasing a new EP called Angel Eyes via El Rey Records. Produced by DC multi-instrumentalist mainstay Jerry Busher (Fugazi, Elevator, French Toast, Funk Ark), Angel Eyes is a low-fi whirlwind of sinister anthems and garage jams. Get drunk and listen to the new single “Push It” and try to not jump irresponsibly into a crowd of people. It’s impossible. I didn’t have a crowd of people on hand when I listened to it the first time, but I broke a ...
