Yesterday we had ShitKid, today we have London based duo Shit Girlfriend, which, if anything is an even better name!

Formed earlier this after coming up with the concept on a trip to LA (a DIY period-punk femme explosion meets the sticking out tongue emoji), they recorded and shared their debut single Mummy’s Boy in February and soon signed to PNKSLM Recordings for the release of their debut AA-sided 7″, which is due today.

Now they’ve shared the second track from the single, I Don’t Wanna Die – have a listen.


 

 

From Glasgow’s fertile DIY punk scene come Breakfast Muff, a wonderfully uncompromising trio who are set to release their new album Eurgh! on 7 July via Amour Foo Records.

Featuring songs about sexuality, feminism and feelings, Eurgh! ranges from soft to screechy in a cacophony of anxiety, celebration and creativity.

Listen to R U A Feminist, which laments the use of feminism to mask violence and is well worth a spin. Stream it below.

 

  1. The National – The System Only Dreams In Total Darkness
  2. Monks – I’m Watching You
  3. Chastity Belt – 5am
  4. This Is The Kit – Moonshine Freeze
  5. Elf Power – Watery Shreds
  6. Terror Watts – Time Bomb
  7. Milk – Lord, Don’t Take Me To Prison
  8. Neils Children – I Am Not Anchor

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Piss Test are a brilliantly named punk threesome formed in Portland, Oregon in 2012.

LPII is (unsurprisingly) their second album, and consists of eleven tracks of snotty, sneering, garage-punk crammed into 19 minutes and 22 seconds. The shortest at 57 seconds, the longest a second over two minutes.

Listen to ferocious album opener Marianne and ferocious album closer Whole Lot Of Whole Lotta Rosie.

You’ll soon get the idea… buy from Bandcamp here.

 

 

Wavves – No Shade

We’ve really liked what we’ve heard so far of Wavves new album You’re Welcome (out on the 19th May).

The latest track to be shared from it is No Shade, a breakneck two minute track featuring Nathan Williams’ signature drawl over quick guitar riffs and a furious drumbeat.

Play loud methinks…

 

 

Youngest sprat hits the dreaded teenage years today.

He’s always had a good ear for a tune. Current obsessions (Philadelphia Eagles apart) are Bob Marley, The Clash, Idles and a soft spot for a Neil Diamond sing-a-long.

Happy Birthday fella…

 

 

 

 

Spoilers made our end of year best of lists and are back with a new self-released single on the band’s own label Vibe/Anti-Vibe label, available on limited edition orange cassette and 7″ lathe cut especially for Record Store Day.

Nothing is another cracker – sharp, catchy punk rock reminiscent of early WireParquet Courts and Uranium Club. 

Have a listen. Order here.
