DAYLIGHT ROBBERY- Signal Bleed - 7"+MP3 - TAKEN BY SURPRISE

click to enlarge New EP by trio from Chicago with 4 songs of anthemic Post-Punk... Well, actually it could be almost called New Wave in this case. At least with the two songs on the female vocals dominated A-Side, and could be compared to the Los Angeles X. The two songs on the B-side come more upbeat, with dual female/male vocals, and being more in the vein of bands like the WIPERS and DEAD MOON. Comes with lyricsheet and download-code included! https://daylightrobbery.bandcamp.com/

NO PROBLEM- Let God Sort Them Out - LP - TAKEN BY SURPRISE

click to enlarge European pressing of the third full album by this Canadian Hardcore-Punk band (overseas pressing released on DERANGED RECORDS). The photo on the back-cover makes you instantly think of POISON IDEA... and these guys seem to have a similar non-compromising and "kill'em all" like attitude: Aggressively attacking, impressively fast loud, and hard! And sounding like a perfect combination of classic Canadian (think of early D.O.A. or SNFU) and US-Hardcore. Catchy as hell as well. LP comes with lyricsheet and download-code included! https://noproblempunk.bandcamp.com/album/let-god-sort-em-out
