More great reviews of the Post Teens 7″. Check ’em out!
“There’s a no-nonsense honesty to Post Teens’ resurrected old-school punk sound that’s quite beautiful. Songs blaze by in 60 to 90 seconds driven by raw, chunky guitars with a rough, unvarnished veneer and surprisingly durable hooks.”
“This is a rip roaring mini-feast of truly fuzzed up garage punk, mixed with the tiniest bits of melodic fury thrown in to make this a huge beast of a release. With a production that does little more than coral the rambunctiousness of the band into a sound that is a pure joy to behold, Post Teens lay down the gauntlet to all and sundry with one of the best singles of 2011.”
I think everyone has just about recovered from FEST 10. Good times were had by all. Thanks to everyone that stopped by and picked something up at the Flea Market or saw one of our bands play. Now that the dust has settled we have a few things to update you on:
1. The Future Now “Hangman/The Runaway” 7″ is available and for sale. It rules. Buy it!
2. Post Teens have been getting some love for their new 7″. Check out reviews from Punkews.org (http://www.punknews.org/review/10712) and thefirstfive.com (http://www.the1stfive.com/reviews/review-post-teens-post-teens-7)
3. We just added new buttons from Chris Wollard and the Ship Thieves, Averkiou, The Future Now and our own Sound Study Recordings design in the webstore. They are FREE with any purchase. We also just added the new 12″ Parasites EP from Coliseum.
4. If you want to own City of Ship’s “Look What God Did to Us” on vinyl, buy it immediately. We only have three copies left until that baby is out of print!
Gainesville’s The Future Now return with a triumphant follow-up to last year’s “Hazy Orange Sunday” with two songs that delve further into 90’s alt-rock worship while adding a jarring heaviness to their sound. On the A side, “Hangman” navigates the shadows between “Bleach” and “Nevermind” with a thick, aggressive lead, while the B side offers a mellower and melodic number reminiscent of Dinosaur Jr or The Lemonheads.
2. The Runaway
First Pressing: 500 copies on swirly black vinyl
