We’re back with another vinyl-filled RECORD OF THE WEEK blog! We have to pat ourselves on the back with the top-pick this time around, just check out the latest Pirates Press Records release, which we co-released with Panic State Records- LENNY LASHLEY’S GANG OF ONE “Illuminator” LP! This is the latest project from the former DARKBUSTER frontman, and with the help of Bryan Keinlen of The Bouncing Souls and Jor Sirois of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Lenny was able to turn these 10 songs into an amazing mixture of straight up rock and heart-wrenching acoustic tunes! The packaging ain’t so bad either…. Just check out that gold foil-stamped jacket and those 4 killer vinyl configurations!

The first honorable mention this week is beautiful and colorful new LP from LISTENER entitled ‘Time Is A Machine’.

The ‘Highlighter Yellow’ w/ ‘Grimace Purple’ and ‘Baby Blue’ Splatter looks insane as well… Kudos, dudes!!
