Japan's MAZE debut 12" gives a dewey feeling. It's Rainy post punk nice for a walk or a drive on a bleak sunned day. It's real hands in pocket music, like that mellow Big in Japan material. But also sounds like Altered Images. An upper and a downer at the same time. aMAZEing. Lumpy Records!
Finally more from THE WORLD. The group that revived Groovy Post Punk a few years back and inspired a few dozen other Rough Trade sounding acts. Rhythm in the front seat, which would make the guitar the giant eyelashes above the headlights. That's right they're from Cali not Kingston. If you're addicted to ESG or Delta 5 maybe you can ween off with The World. "The sound of yesterday, today, and tomorrow" -paraphrasing someone important. Lumpy Recs Learn More
S.B.F. are a twitching Los Angeles duo made up of Cruz Somers (recognizable via singles under his own name as well as SOCIALITES) and Ray Schmidt (of Neck Chop’s very own RACE CAR), two insular and prolific punks with penchants for punky home-recorded noize. After joining forces in 2016, S.B.F. immediately launched their stun offensive via singles on Drunken Sailor and Goodbye Boozy, surfing praise from the jump. Their recognizable racket --- tough punk with electronic twists and stabs --- sounds a tad harsher than most of their counterparts, with one member supplying a hook while the other drags it across concrete.
With smart and jarring sleights of hand, S.B.F.’s approach combats the very notion that synthetic instrumentation commands electro and/or synth punk classifications. Though their sound is rightfully centered on programmed drumbeats, it’s the dual-guitar punk acrobatics that the duo seems infinitely more concerned with, with guitars alternating between buzz and bludgeon in menacing fashion. This tilt in formula makes S.B.F.’s sound panicked, darkly cinematic and very punk…Techno toys be damned.
This one’s for all the late-nite droolers out there --- those that wake the neighbors on weeknights and never ever apologize for it.
Stiff Buddies Flailing.
Synth Bro Foundation.
Stoned Bleeping Friends.
Screamers Biggest Fans.
SAME BEAT FOREVER.
Neck Chop quite proudly presents S.B.F.’s debut album to close out 2018.

World’s Scariest Police Chases returns bearing their first full length album in five years with this lumpy smoothie of perfectly blended skate punk, early 90s hardcore, satire, jabs and general lampoonery. In case there was any doubt, the band that brought you Start (Fucking Yourself) Today shows they still want you fucking yourself furiously with Ablum 3, a twelve track LP available in splatter, white and pink.
From the first song, modernbaseballiswar., Ablum 3 cements the legacy WSPC has long cultivated as the Don Rickles of punk rock. And what’s more punk rock than roasting your friends? “Allowance drained on these tattoo sleeves, reading your lyrics to form my beliefs”. But, the fun doesn’t stop there. From Mind Trap to the Shape of Punk is Dumb, the message is clear: think for yourself. Or at least laugh at yourself.
With their third ablum under their belt, it’s pretty clear World’s Scariest Police Chases hasn’t slowed down and isn’t pulling over. Preorder a copy today… Because life is shitty and music is fun.

Stay Honest, the follow up to Brutal Youth’s 2010 debut full length Spill Your Guts, found the Canadian quartet further honing their sound, which blends the fury of Kid Dynamite and the blistering sarcasm of the Circle Jerks into something that sounds both familiar and completely it’s own. Brutal Youth has the rare ability to write songs that manage to be both fun and introspectively earnest, and Stay Honest is packed full of both those things. With a work ethic as relentless as their sound’s sonic assault, Brutal Youth is truly a force to be reckoned with. (FFO: Kid Dynamite, Nomeansno, and lots of Whoas) on GREEN VINYL! Learn More
Church bells sound on empty streets of a nowhere town ... cops prowl and thieves look into dark windows ... out of the gloom and wasteland of America come the Invisible Teardrops with eleven new tunes, music to dance to while ambulance lights flash against the wall ... haunted eyes, skating ditches, Mickey Mouse, Waffles and syrup, surfing alone and skeletal cemetery walks, the Teardrops bring their second full length, recorded at the Black Owl Trading Company by Grant Walden one cool day in October ...

"The first thing that leaps out at me is how much Notches are able to capture a real chaotic, but still supremely catchy, energy on this album. They're able to combine higher pitched, melodic vocals and a fuzzed out, crunchy guitar sound that is always on the bleeding edge of being in the red. Combine that with a drummer that sounds like he is beat the absolute shit out of his drum set and you've got yourselves a potent little band. Notches remind me so much of early Rumspringer and that's high praise from me as I love that band (Side note: does anyone know if Rumspringer is still a band? Haven't heard anything out of them in quite some time)" -IBuyTooManyRecords Learn More
