“Zoo” CD/LP Matador Post Punk I normally try to steer clear of records that have gotten as much press as this one (Why tell you about stuff you’ve already heard of?) but for this, I’ll make an exception. Zoo is Ceremony’s fourth LP and first for Matador. This, even more than it’s predecessor Rhonert Park, has got hardcore kids and indie rock bloggers...
“Pangea” Cassette Lost Sound Tapes Indie Pop Punk Garage I’m back with a deeper cut from Burger Records hitmakers, Pangea. Everyone seems to be talking about Pangea’s latest release on Burger, Living Dummy, so I thought I’d break the blogging monotony and talk about an older release of theirs.

The tone has just enough grit to rock when it needs to but it’s...
Your Pest Band
“Ya Ya Ya” LP HS!BF records Punk/Garage Your Pest Band (yes, band is part of the name) hail from the island nation of Japan, but other than their accents there’s not too much Japanese content here.
