Rational Anthem - Bread Line 7" / CDEP

Released: March 29, 2011.
Cover art by Corey Ayd.
First press: 310 black, 146 flour, 54 oatmeal cookie.

1. (The Weight of the World is) Shitting On My Shoulders
2. Blackout Magic
3. Idling
4. Customer Complaints

Rational Anthem were, by all rights, the first Traffic Street band. I've come a long way since I started out and I'm proud to say that so have they. With their new EP, Rational Anthem have turned in a record that's more than just four songs recorded at the same time. Bread Line perfectly captures the spirit and feeling of what it's like to be young, broke, and overworked in 2011 America. While not one of these four songs sounds like any of the others, the band's energy and the overarching theme of economic hardship connect them all to create a perfect cohesive EP that's as strong as anything else that I've been lucky enough to release. It took three years and three split 7-inches for Rational Anthem to record a follow-up EP to their s/t demo, but it was absolutely worth the wait. The band's figured out who they are, how they write, and what they do best -and on Bread Line, they do it four times over. If you're through with college, have given up on the job market, and have sadly come to the realization that you'll never have it as good as your parents, Bread Line is the record for you. Buy it now and start getting excited for their upcoming full-length.

Sundials - Never Settle CD

CD release: February 22, 2011.
LP released by Toxic Pop: February 27, 2011
Cover art by Max Weinstein-Bacal.

1. Either Way
2. Never Settle
3. Good Words
4. 47 Million
5. The Green Light
6. Carver Blues
7. San Francisco Court House Steps
8. Take You In My Coffee
9. Probably Not
10. In the Dark
11. Crosby Sux
12. Blame

Early in 2010, a new band from Richmond recorded a six song EP that took me completely by surprise. That band was Sundials and their virtually flawless debut was a prime example of how to play confident and catchy '90s influenced indie/punk with charm and attitude. Each song was distinct, memorable, and exciting, and within a day I must have listened to it fifty times over. When I heard just a few months later that the band had already written an entire full-length's worth of material to follow up that first EP, I got on board to release it without a moment of hesitation. If you love Kudrow, Cheap Girls, or any of the other upstarts taking cues from bands like Archers of Loaf and Superchunk, this is your album for 2011.

Barrakuda McMurder - More Songs About Girlfriends and Volcanoes 3" MCD

Released: November 18, 2010.
Cover art by Charles Vorkhas.

1. Fuck You, Ms. ********
2. Grace/Period
3. Oh My God, You Guys, My Job Is So Annoying and My Life Is Seriously So Hard (You Guys)

Since he writes more songs than his band can record, House Boat's Grath Madden (also formerly of The Steinways) started another project called Barrakuda McMurder. The band doesn't have a fixed line-up; it's pretty much just whoever's around when it comes time to hit the studio. The second EP from the "band," More Songs About Girlfriends and Volcanoes was released via a Mediafire link posted on a message board in 2009. One year later, I'm still listening to these songs that had pretty much slipped by the rest of the world's radar. Admittedly, one of the songs was an awful joke that didn't ever really need to be heard again, and though the remaining three were excellent, they clocked in at a total of just four minutes -not much fodder for a 7-inch. If we were going to release it, we knew it'd have to be done a little differently. I pitched the idea to Grath to press it as a three-inch mini-disc packaged in a tiny little gluepocket. (For those unfamiliar, mini-discs won't even operate in some CD players -and sometimes they'll even jam up the disc drive and break your stereo). "What a terrible idea," he responded. "I'm totally into it."

So here it is: More Songs About Girlfriends and Volcanoes, finally available in physical form. The art is yet another Mutant Pop parody, right down to the overenthusiastic essay on the back cover, which just so happens to be the funniest thing you'll read all year. Priced at just $1.25/minute, how can you resist?


The Transgressions / The Credentials - Split 7"

Released: October 16, 2010.
Cover art by Tom Donington.
First press: 296 black currant, 116 boysenberry, 55 loganberry, 18 blueberry, 15 raspberry, 12 blue raspberry.

The Transgressions
1. Baby, I Love You (But I Need Someone to Talk to About The Ramones)
2. Sleazeball
3. I Don't Even Care Anymore

The Credentials
4. Mark Reznik Takes 30 Guys to Beat Contra
5. Nametags & Hairnets

The Transgressions play sludgy grimy pop punk about being a fuck-up. People say they sound like Off With Their Heads but that's 'cause people are lazy and dumb. It's more like The Ramones on depressants if Joey sucked on an exhaust pipe for 30 minutes before laying down his vocal tracks -but with better guitar tones. They released what was probably the best EP of 2009 and if you don't have it yet, it's because you're old and out of touch. The Credentials are -basically -the punkest god damn band on the planet. Their songs are dirty, frantic, and hard to find on iTunes. They write about things in a way that makes me think that maybe it's still worth giving a shit (even though it so obviously isn't). Their detractors call them "Witches With Dicks Junior." I can live with that.

V/A - Dangerous Intersections VII 7"

Released: October 5, 2010.
Cover art by Jason Lubrano.
First press: 335 black, 155 apricot, 60 exhaust.

The Transgressions
1. 17

Billy Raygun
2. Flashlight

3. Heterosexual Lion

New Creases
4. No Spark

One brand new song from each band! This is the seventh installment in the series, but the first to feature four bands, all of which had yet to release anything when Traffic Street hit the ground running with its first release at the start of 2009. I defy anyone to come up with a better group of young bands on the rise, each with their own fresh, exciting spin on pop punk. The Transgressions open the record ripping fast with their doped-up, chaotic take on Ramones/Weaselcore with a song about growing up without ambition. Billy Raygun slow things down just a scratch with another Bent-spirited rager with the kind of energy that can only come out teenagers. On side two, Vacation bring the hooks and the weirdness, demonstrating why they're quickly becoming one of the most hyped and loved bands in our scene. And closing things out, New Creases belt and noodle their way through one of their best songs yet, in their unmistakably distinct style that's already spawned a handful of imitators across the country. A lot of people have told me that this is the best Dangerous Intersections 7" to date -and a lot of people just might be right.

Jonesin' - The Dream is Dead 7"

Released: September 7, 2010.
Cover art by Jason Lubrano.
First press: 108 aquamarine, 104 blueberry swirl, 103 bone, 102 red, 95 strawberry yogurt, 7 purple cow, 2 ultraviolet, 1 black with green splatter.
A split release w/ Dirt Cult, Muy Autentico, and No Breaks.

1. 'Lone
2. Nothing At All
3. Just So You Know
4. (Take Me to the) Antique Roadshow

As Jonesin' began working on their debut EP late last year, something happened that made their label lose interest: they announced that their show at The Fest in Gainesville would be their last. They were calling it quits. Luckily, Chris (Dirt Cult), Kyle (Muy Autentico), Stewart (No Breaks), and I all have the kind of terrific business sense that would compel a person to plead with a defunct non-touring band to get to put out their record. Rather than choose one of us - well - connect the dots, Einstein. It's a four-way split release!

So here it is - the swan song EP from Long Island's best East Bay-spirited band. Four songs of gravelly Green Day and Crimpshrine influenced pop punk -aptly titled The Dream is Dead.

Except for one thing: they reconsidered and decided not to break up after all!



Dead Mechanical - Addict Rhythms CD

CD released: June 5, 2010.
LP released by Toxic Pop: August 5, 2010
Cover art by Nolen Strals.

1. Addict Rhythm
2. Sidewalks
3. Baltimore Calling
4. Feathered Creatures
5. Film at Forever
6. Watchpost
7. Last Show
8. A World of Mistakes
9. All These Weathermen
10. Binghamton Calling
11. Pictures in the Hall
12. Under the Leaves

One of the best things about living in the miserable hole that is Washington, DC is that -if nothing else -it's not far from Baltimore. And one of the best things about Baltimore is definitely Dead Mechanical. The band have been around for a few years now, but don't get out on the road too often which has resulted in a kind of "best kept secret" status. They're a tough band to describe, but let's just say that if you're a fan of the kind of gritty pop punk Traffic Street seems to specialize in (or at least focus on) you're going to be into this record in a big way. Drawing influence from bands like Jawbreaker, The Wipers, and Husker Du, and with two lead vocalists (both totally distinct and providing an awesome contrast to one another) Dead Mechanical are playing around in a well-worn genre without sounding at all worn themselves.

As Todd Taylor over at Razorcake said in his review of their previous full-length (Medium Noise), "They're aware of Dillinger Four, Jawbreaker, and Toys That Kill, but don't want to sound anything like them. They want to sound like who shows up in the mirror in the morning ... Mid-paced, melodic, and melancholic while giving the overall feeling of Baltimore in the winter: the rust, the caked-on ice, white puffs of breath, of a town living in the shadow of much larger cities and deciding to stay and celebrate what it has to offer ... A spot-on album. Highly recommended."

If we were more organized, we'd already have glowing reviews of Addict Rhythms to show you -but don't worry, they're coming.



The Credentials - Routines CD

LP self-released by The Credentials: March 16, 2010.
CD released: June 2, 2010.
Cover art by Tom Donington.

1. Nice Girl / Coffee Shop
2. Up in the Attic
3. Detroit Rats
4. I Don't Want to Think About That Girl
5. Slowly Going the Way of the Juggalo
6. Night Sweats
7. Routines
8. Korean Porn Dumpster
9. Repeat Offender
10. Hating Your Guts
11. Mike-Graffito Tagged Somerville
12. Sucking Dust

Earlier this year, the Credentials self-released their debut LP. I had liked their 7-inch, but this full-length seriously knocked me on my ass. Twelve songs recorded live that transition seamlessly all the way through to the end of the record. This is ripping-fast, scrappy as hell, but still completely bold. When I say that this record is "punk as fuck," that's not tongue-in-cheek. It has an energy that I couldn't even begin to describe and -on top of all of that -these guys are writing some of the best lyrics out there at the moment. Not only can they perfectly articulate the frustrations of daily life in the most poetic way possible, but they can actually write "issue songs" that don't make me roll my eyes. And for someone as jaded and apathetic as I've come to be, that's quite the fucking achievement. If you're a fan of Crimpshrine, Insomniac-era Green Day, and Witches With Dicks, get ready for your favorite record of 2010.



Rational Anthem / Billy Raygun - Split 7"

Released: May 28, 2010.
Cover art by Corey Ayd.
First press: 303 black, 206 tangerine.
A split release w/ John Wilkes Booth Records.

Rational Anthem
1. Same Shirt, Different Day
2. Just Shrug

Billy Raygun
3. Killjoy
4. The Worst Day of My Life

After a year that had as many releases as it did line-up changes, Rational Anthem have reunited with their original (and incredible) drummer, hit a proper studio for the first time, and written what everyone that's heard them thus far are calling their two best songs to date. Old and new fans alike, prepare to be impressed by some anthemic, biting pop punk.

On Side B, Billy Raygun shred their instruments like The Ergs!, with the spirit of a band like Bent Outta Shape, without sounding much like either of them. If I had to describe it, I'd call it charmingly-warbly indie/punk rock. With an average age of just 18, you can't help but wonder how these kids got this awesome this fast.



Rumspringer - Empty Towers CD/LP

Released: May 29, 2010.
Cover art by Manny Mares and Kim G.
First press: 444 black, 113 diet sierra mist.

1. With a Hint of Lyme
2. Future Train
3. The "May I Help You" Riff
4. Post-Midnight
5. It's Literally Tearing Me Apart
6. Back on Hess and 4th Again
7. Online Pokerface
8. Seems Like a Flusher
9. Parastolic Reaction
10. The Same Wavelength
11. Sometimes Dead is Better

With Empty Towers, Rumspringer prove that they not only have what it takes to write more than an EP's worth of great songs, but that they're a band that's only getting better with time. There's something casual and laid-back but still captivating about their brand of pop punk. On repeated listens, faster bands can get grating; slower bands get boring. There's a quality to this band though that compels you to listen to their songs over and over again. There may not be much you can do with punk at this point to keep it sounding fresh, but a select few bands always seem to manage. Jawbreaker did it, Latterman did it, and now Rumspringer are doing it. There's no roadmap or formula here -I don't even want to draw any cheap comparisons for a recommendation. Check it out if you're interested in hearing a young band that wrote an album that's thoroughly their own.

5. Tired Pleas

After releasing one of 2009's best full-lengths, the band featuring Grath and Ace of The Steinways, Mikey Erg, and Zack Off-With-Their-Dear Landlord's-Rivetheads is back! On their new EP, House Boat do what they do best five times over. You want novelty? Innovation? Vicissitude?!? You're outta luck. Processing Complaints is smart-alecky, self-deprecating pop punk in five quick bursts. Catchy and to the point.

Vacation Bible School
1. The Swarming
3. You'll Always Be My Girl

The God Damn Doo Wop Band

4. Leaving Town

Blistering punk rock from Chicago's vastly underrated Vacation Bible School, bittersweet doo wop gems from Minneapolis' The God Damn Doo Wop Band. Both bands contribute one Vacation Bible School song and one God Damn Doo Wop Band song, so you get one original and one cover from each. If you don't get what I'm saying, pull out your scrap paper and see if you can't work it out for yourself.

No High Fives to Bullshit
1. My Friends?

The Manix
2. Red Truck

The Humanoids
3. Pride by the Barrel

The Taxpayers
4. The Lights

The sixth installment in the series! From Colorado comes No High Fives to Bullshit with some of the sludgiest, heaviest, most fucked up pop punk ever. The Manix play catchy, fast-as-hell punk rock from MPLS in the spirit of Rivethead. Outta St. Louis, The Humanoids write smart, slick pop punk that'll appeal equally to fans in the Ramonescore, East Bay, and Gainesville camps. Last, Portland, Oregon's The Taxpayers offer up a 4-minute  epic motherfucker of a song that should sit pretty well with fans of The Sidekicks and anybody that thought "The Disco Before The Breakdown" was a step forward, rather than the beginning of the end.

"UK yellow" colored vinyl available exclusively from Different Kitchen.

If you're a fan of The Measure (SA), Rumspringer, or Through Being Cool-era Saves the Day, do yourself a favor and pick up this record.

The Brokedowns take all of the best elements of punk and hardcore to create some of the smartest, most creative, catchy, energetic anthems you could ever hope to hear. I'm not generally excited about the idea of "reissues," but this record is one giant exception. Recommended for fans of Dillinger Four, Off With Their Heads, and Witches With Dicks.

Apocalypse Meow
1. DIY Pharmacy
2. Spliff Burton vs. Tom Brewnansky
3. Same Sad Song

Rational Anthem
4. What Am I Doing Here?
5. 717 Orange

"By far the best APOCALYPSE MEOW shit so far. Stand-out of the three is 'Same Sad Song', which addresses that depressed, boring friend who won't shut up about the girl who broke their heart. It's spot-on and I can't get over how simply written yet devastatingly effective these songs are. It's like the three chords everyone starts off with, but with none of the over-written fiddles that can ruin a good song. RATIONAL ANTHEM remind me of COWBOY DYNAMITE and RUMSPRINGER a bit, melodic energetic songs with loads going on, dual vocals and awesome songwriting. I just can't get enough of bands who play this kind of thing, and RATIONAL ANTHEM do it so well. It's raw and powerful, there's no 'production' making these songs great, it's all natural." - Jerk Store

Apocalypse Meow
3. Rehab
4. Where Would Jesus Work?

"I'll pretty much pick up anything with AJJ on it, but the fact that APOCALYPSE MEOW are the other band makes it an essential purchase. APOCALYPSE MEOW would be awesome in their own right, but I guess what makes them more 'interesting' for people is that Justin from OFF WITH THEIR HEADS has stepped out fro behind the kit to sing and play guitar. His voice is clean and gruff-less, and it sounds kinda like OWTH with the gain turned down. These songs are catchy like you wouldn't believe, with great lyrics and unpolished charm that makes for a LOT of reaching over to the record player. ANDREW JACKSON JIHAD have one new song, and an early version of 'Growing Up'. They're both great tunes but the AM stuff is why you really should buy this." - Jerk Store

"Four songs that will restore the faith you have in pop punk that may be fading since the loss of so many great bands in the past few years. The Side Project is like your favorite blanket you can curl up with and feel safe in the knowledge that there's simple straight forward pop punk songs still being put out. This record gets six thumbs up as soon as I can find out how that's possible." - Uncle Critic
