Equal parts Motorhead, Sonic Youth and maybe the early Misfits, Hunters boast an aggressive, raw style of punk. Since February, they've been rising through the ranks, thanks to a 2-song offering mixed by Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs).
Audacity are a very rare band, and Mellow Cruisers is a second album that shows a band growing up whilst still retaining the things that made people fall in love with them in the first place. The angst-y vocals/lyrics, speedy guitar and drums, and melody-controlling bass are all the winning elements that Audacity pulls off, even in their young progression. Even if punk rock dies again (which would account for the umpteenth time anyways, right?), one thing that is for sure, is that Audacity are great musicians and have a serious knack for melody that stands above any dying genre. Through the friendship they've had with Burger Records, King Tuff, and tour-mates Natural Child, Audacity have developed through observation, an even more enamored-compass towards melody, and Mellow Cruisers perfectly showcases that. Mellow Cruisers is a successful power-punk record, that's well-produced, well-written, and undeniably catchy and fun. - Heave Media
Brendan Finn, Joe Galarraga, Amar Lal, and Carlos Salguero Jr. met whilst learning about specifications of Cat 5 cables in New York City. Shortly after, they formed a band. Big Ups – since 2010 – blend punk, post-punk, metal, and indie rock into a salty mash that gets stuck to the roof of your mouth. At their brightest, they have been likened to The Descendents, but at their sludgiest, they call to mind bands like Pissed Jeans and The Jesus Lizard.
Big Ups released their debut 11-track LP, Eighteen Hours of Static (Dead Labour/Tough Love Records) in the beginning of 2014. Since the album’s release, Big Ups have been touring in the United States and Europe - playing lots of shows and never really getting a good night sleep.
In July 2014, Big Ups took an extended nap and somehow woke up in THUMP Studios in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. They decided to try to record a few new songs, and - despite the band’s grogginess- they actually finished the recordings. These new songs were released on 7” vinyl - as a split with Washer via Exploding in Sound Records and the band’s own ECB&B imprint in the US on November 18th and as Rash b/w Not Today via Tough Love Records in Europe on October 27th.
