The Beths occupy a warm, energetic sonic space between joyful hooks, sun-soaked harmonies, and acerbic lyrics. Their debut album "Future Me Hates Me," forthcoming on Carpark Records, delivers an astonishment of roadtrip-ready pleasures, each song hitting your ears with an exhilarating endorphin rush like the first time you heard Slanted and Enchanted or “Cannonball.”
As soon as Shawna Porter lets loose in opening track ‘Lone Wolves,’ a song that touches on the gun violence epidemic that’s plaguing America, you know this is going to be good.
Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn are back to being bad moms in a sequel no one was waiting for. Not only are they back, but this time around their moms (Christine Baranski, Susan Sarandon and Cherly Hines) are involved as well. Obviously that means double the moms, but unfortunately also double the cringe-worthy moments and double the jokes that never land.
Satanic Surfers are not the only Swedish punk legends making a comeback. No Fun At All is back as well with ‘Grit’, their first new album since 2008’s ‘Lowrider’. And holy shit, it is good!
Dayton, Ohio… not exactly a hotbed for punkrock. Nobody told The Raging Nathans though. Or maybe someone did and they just didn’t care.

Not Scientists have a new album out.
“Beacon Of Faith,” the title track to the incoming third album by Vancouver, British Columbia-based metallic hardcore punk group, Baptists, is now available on all digital platforms ahead of the album’s release through Southern Lord later this month.
Beacon Of Faith broadly follows the same trajectory as the album’s predecessors, Bushcraft (2013) and Bloodmines (2014) - combining raw adrenaline-fuelled emotion, venomous vocal delivery, gigantic guitar sound, and a visceral rhythmic propulsion - a sonic manifestation of desolate rage, bolstered by a palpable sense of urgency.
