Remainders/Barons – Split 7″

This may be the best cover art I’ve seen in a while…


I know Jason Lubrano (vocalist of Iron Chic) artwork when I see it.  Well done Sir.

So, how did this come about?

Well, two Pittsburgh punk acts, Remainders and BARONS, decided to join forces and drop a sweet punk rock split for what I would hope was for extra beer money.  The result is an infectious 4-track 7″ that really showcases the talent of each act.  At $5, you’d be a fool not to purchase it.

The good folk over at For The Love Of Punk are actually steaming this split today for your listening pleasure.  Check it out by clicking HERE.

You can also check it out below as it is streaming and available for purchase over at the BARONS BandCamp page.

With only a limited number of pressings, make sure you snag one today.

Check It Out: Reverse The Curse

Reverse The Curse is now streaming its sophomore full-length record, Existent, on SoundCloud.  They were cool enough to allow everyone and anyone to share the stream the album on their own sites, so here you go:

The Hiram, OH-based post-rockers really have outdone themselves on this second album released by Paper + Plastick Records.  You can pre-order the new record by clicking HERE.

Who Are Masked Intruder?

I know…

…but why give up a good thing?

This pop-punk foursome has been turning heads all summer with their pop-punk tunage.  I have been getting a kick out of all the rumors that are sprouting up as of late.  I can tell you that they are not Dear Landlord as they played in New Mexico last night while Masked Intruder tore it up at Now That’s Class in Cleveland.  No one from Nothington or Teenage Bottlerocket is in the band either.  Beyond that, I don’t want to be the dick that ruined the punk rock Residents / Daft Punk for all of you.

Seriously, these guys are one of the most exciting bands to emerge this summer.  They really need to put out their self-titled on vinyl.  I think that would be an excellent idea.

Have you heard of them yet?

Nick 13’s Solo Debut Is Streaming on Spinner Right Now!!!

I’m not sure what you are doing at the moment, but if you can, head over to Spinner and check out the new Nick 13 solo album that drops today.  Spinner is streaming the album in its entirety and I am loving it.

Nick 13, most commonly known as the singer and songwriter of Tiger Army, has gone a new route and created some acoustic storytelling-Americana songs that are driven by his unmistakable voice.  His solo attempt is without a doubt something different from what many people might expect from a rockabilly/punk artist, but I can tell you this…it is amazing and he did a damn good job.

From a press release I received:

Nick’s debut album for Sugar Hill Records features acoustic and electric guitar, standup bass, pedal steel, fiddle and much more from a wide pedigree of players who connected with 13’s genuine passion, understanding and knowledge of the history of the music and forward-thinking vision for the future. Some of the folks on the album include Lloyd Green, Sara Watkins, Josh Grange, Eddie Perez and Mitch Marine, in addition to the album’s producers Leisz and Intveld.

 Nick offered fans a brief preview of his solo work during encores at Tiger Army’s 2009 “Octoberflame II” event, followed by a full unveiling on the Palomino Stage at Stagecoach last year. “Nick 13 paid earnest homage to Merle Haggard and Ray Price, both of whom [followed] him shortly on the same stage,” wrote the Los Angeles Times.
West Coast shows (including a stop at the roots-music mecca Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown, California) preceded a second major festival appearance at the 15th-annual “Hootenanny.” Playing second to last, just before Chuck Berry, Nick delivered an hour long performance the Orange County Register called nothing less than “an artistic triumph.” Earlier this year he made his first ever appearance at South By Southwest.
Nick spent much of the past two years writing and recording his debut solo album in Los Angeles and Nashville (even living above Printer’s Alley for a time) – laying down tracks like “Nashville Winter” featuring pedal steel legend Lloyd Green, the Bakersfield sound “101” and the atmospheric “Carry My Body Down”.

I hope to have a review of the release shortly, until then, enjoy…
