———————————— Honorable Mentions ———————————————
After the release of their critically acclaimed record “in • ter a • li • a”, AT THE DRIVE In gives us a brand new EP in time for Black Friday Record Store Day. Produced by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and mixed by Johann Scheerer, “Diamanté” includes three songs that the band announced via cryptic message. “How do you weaponize the insatiable thirst for life among vultures? How do you deprogram the coroner dissecting hiatus? What light beckons you from the sewers of suggestion? Is your instinct extinct? Or does it hide in the flash burn of counterfeit automatons? Five boys with guilty slingshots swaying to the Midwitch Sound. Blinded by the “Diamanté.” Grab a 10″ from RISE RECORDS on the ‘’Doublemint’ / ‘Black’ AsideBside vinyl!
With a career spanning nearly 30 years, BOUNCING SOULS have carved their punk legacy with a vast catalog of records that fans still champion to this day. Released in 2012, “Comet” is the Souls’ 9th full-length album that captures the band’s energy with Gregory Attonito’s increasingly poetic and storytelling songwriting style. Simplicity breeds beauty as this repress displays the classic ‘Gold’ or ‘Gold’ w/ ‘Black’ Splatter vinyl that you can grab on CHUNKSAAH’S webstore!
JESUS SONS are based out of Los Angeles, CA. ‘Tres’ is their third full length record and third record out on MOCK RECORDS. Featuring songs about All-night parties turned into hangovers. Lovin’ turned to cheatin’, but the wheels keep rollin’. But these guys keep playing what they like and they like what they play… good ol’ fashioned rock’n’roll. Just what the world needs in these complicated times.
