Boston Strangler put out one hell of a demo a few years back. So, my expectations were high for the inevitable full length album. For all bands but more so for hardcore bands putting out a great full length album is incredibly difficult. Frankly I think most hardcore bands should stick to demos and 7 inches, they just suit the style of music much better than an LP in my opinion. As you might already know from their aforementioned demo Boston Strangler is not most bands. The high expectations I had for this record were not only met but far exceeded.
I know that what I'm going to say is something extremely immature that I probably also said when I was 19 or 20 about some other great records, but anyway here goes:
If you can't get down with this record just fucking stop listening to hardcore and move on to something else.

Father John Misty is the solo project of ex-Fleet Foxes drummer J. Tillman. Indie rock for fans of Neil Young, Roy Orbison, older My Morning Jacket, Waylon Jennings, etc. Check out this debut record from someone who is not only an excellent songwriter, musician, and lyricist, but a magnificent showman as well.
Some of you will recognize the music immediately as the title track kicks in as "that song Jay Z sampled in Roc Boys", but I assure you, Menahan Street Band is much more than that. If you're a fan of soul, Motown, funk, jazz, and all things fun, then you need to listen to this band. Looking for a soundtrack to your summer, whether it be back yard BBQs or chilling on a rooftop? This is it. Here's a short bio:

I know a few people have been waiting for me to post these. Sorry for the delay.
Trust me it's worth it.
Check these guys out at KFN on July 24th. Buy tickets here.
Their show there last year was easily my favorite of 2011.

Leather are also playing a really sick gig on June 10th at the Church with Ceremony and [newly added] Citizens Arrest. Check out it early to catch their set. Last year they put out a 3rd 7 inch on Jade Tree records which I would guess they'll have for sale.

The best Philly band you still aren't dickriding. The 4th unofficial release and they honestly keep improving. It's a bandcamp link so you can check out their previous releases and catch up and act like you've always been down (as you should).

Unholy Grave - Crucified
The Japanese grind band everyone wishes they have seen. One of the few/best full lengths that they released in their almost 20 year history.
General Surgery - Necrology EP
Early Carcass worship hailing from Sweden. Gore grind at it's finest. Necrology is some of their earliest, and some considered best work.
Gride - Horizont Udalosti
Fuck yeah! One of the more underrated grind/hc bands. From the Czech Republic, Gride provides some awesome pissed off music with some technical drumming and ferocious guitar work. What can I say, I have a soft spot for gang vocals yelled at me in Czech.

You got it, its the new Black Breath record catching a lot of people's attention.
Still lots of crust to satisfy loyal fans, but a huge step up in the metal riffs department.
Dump a chalice of bong water on a hot girl's butt and headbang til your neck breaks.

Changing it up from my usual crust uploads today I'm reintroducing the band Cavity. Before Torche and Floor these dudes were Floridas heavy hitters of stoner metal. Turn it up to 11 and shake your fist hard as hell at this shitty rain.

Yeah, only the best fucking band of all time. Scum + 13 albums later, the apple still doesn't fall far from the tree. This band can do no wrong.

New demo from a Philly 4-piece reminiscent of Hot Water Music, Small Brown Bike, etc.
Superior recording for a demo, and miles ahead of the previous bands these lads were doing.
Come out to the Green Rock this Saturday for their first show.

Sunburster (OUR FIRST SHOW!)
Friday, Feb 10, 2012 8:00 PM EST
KungFu Necktie, Philadelphia, PA
Bruno Guerreiro (who conveniently illustrated the poster for this event) will be displaying and selling some new artwork upstairs.
Hope to see you there!
New 3-piece grindcore outfit from Philly ala Brutal Truth and Pig Destroyer, with subtle powerviolence influence. Members of a lot of bands so I'm not even trying to remember them all, and featuring our very own Johnny boy on vocals.

The Aussie comic who's been at the forefront of the standup world and #1 in our hearts for the past few years now. His often controversial material spares no one and most importantly, is brutally honest at all costs. Add him being in a drunken stupor pretty much all the time and you have a formula for steady lolz.
I Swear to God (2010)

With Jack Control of World Burns To Death on vocals and Todd Burdette of Tragedy, His Hero Is Gone, etc. on guitar, Severed Head Of State is a supergroup of sorts, with D-beat drums blasting over eight tracks of ugly hardcore punk with crust influences. You know the deal.
