Here are five albums you should check out this week!
Jeromes Dream – “Drone Before Parlor Violence”
Album: LP (Microspy Records)
Pioneers of the screamo scene in the late 90s, Jeromes Dream are back with their first full-length record in 18 years. If the single “Drone Before Parlor Violence” is any indication of what the new record will sound like, fans of old-school emo and screamo will be quite pleased.
Tomb Mold – “They Grow Inside Pt 2”
Album: Planetary Clairvoyance (20 Buck Spin Records)
If you’re looking for fast metal, look no further: Tomb Mold has yinz covered. The Pittsburgh-based group’s new album Planetary Clairvoyance is out today, and you can stream “They Grow Inside Pt 2” right here. Get ready for a brutal ride.
Good Riddance – “Don’t Have Time”
Album: Thoughts and Prayers (Fat Wreck Chords)
With the poppy, quick-witted stylings of MxPx or NOFX, Good Riddance are left-coast pop-punk at its finest. They meld catchy music with politically forward lyrics to create art that is as fun as it is meaningful.
Hunny – “Halloween”
Album: Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. (Epitaph Records)
“Halloween” is a cute, upbeat pop song off Hunny’s new record. It’s a perfect pick-me-up for the summer slump, celebrating everyone’s favorite fall holiday.
Wreck and Reference – “A Mirror”
Album: Absolute Still Life (The Flesner Records)
Certainly the darkest song featured this week, “A Mirror” by Wreck and Reference has an interesting, experimental sound that mixes spoken word and singing over fuzzy electronic music. The Los Angeles band’s new record, Absolute Still Life, is out now on The Flesner Records.
