5 Albums You Should Have Listened To From February 3rd


Young Fathers

Heavy Heavy

Released on Ninja Tune

It takes the Scottish group a while between albums but for over a decade now it’s been well worth it. Joyous and vicious in equal parts, full of restless energy and light and strung together with killer melodies.


Attachment Styles

Released on TULLE

Earthy, frank, confrontational, and deeply feminist – this Dublin punk band has a way of getting up in your face and not backing down until you acknowledge them.

The Psychotic Monks

Pink Colour Surgery

Released on Vicious Circle / FatCat

A lot of people have rediscovered the joys of post-punk since the plague knocked us all aside but lately there’s been a resurgence of bands digging into the old no wave scene, with all of its attendant noise, madness, and dissonance. Produced by Daniel Fox from Gilla Band, because of course it was.

Blonde Revolver

Good Girls Go To Heaven, Bad Girls Go Everywhere

Released on Rack Off Records

Straight outta Melbourne (Aussies know punk in the Toxic Twenties), Blonde Revolver blends spiky synth lines and snarling punk guitar to sound like how you’ve romanticized 1982 to be.

Sunny War

Anarchist Gospel

Released on New West Records

L.A. switchblade shitkicker music, as unlikely as that sounds. Actually, come to think of it, that’s pretty likely. The city of Linda Ronstadt and Black Flag would eventually come to no other logical conclusion.
