Aggressive Reptilians Cut Hardcore Kids

There are plenty of interesting records being released over the next month or so and so instead of talking about whats already come out recently now, come with me and lets fantasize about what could be.

The Get Up Kids: There Are Rules(1/25)

As I mentioned last month, the prospect of any new material from a band returning to their roots while simultaneously reuniting is somewhat noteworthy… When that particular band is The Get Up Kids, that news is downright exciting. The only thing that I’m worried about is being overly optimistic about it. Review coming soon…

The Radio Dept.: Passive Aggressive: Singles 2002-2010(1/25)

Sure, these are merely 28 songs that they’ve already written and recorded over the last 9 years. In fact, if you’re already a hardcore fan of theirs, you probably already have all of these songs. I personally am only missing one of them. Why is this something to get excited about? How dare you insult my enthusiasm, sir or madame! Its because anything new to you from someone you love will always be welcomed. And this, my friend, is one of those occasions.

Cut Copy: Zonoscope(2/8)

After mixing, remixing and mixing again for what seemed like 3 years, Cut Copy will finally release Zonoscope. They were playing songs from this record as early as their 2nd tour for their last record, so knowing that they had the songs and were only waiting to complete the album and record it over all of this time was a pretty frustrating thing to be aware of. The anticipation was almost killing us all, or at least it was for me. I’ve already shined my best dancing shoes and all they need to do is satisfy my restless leg syndrome.

Pharaohs & Pyramids

Mogwai: Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will(2/15)

Thankfully, unlike most of the bands in this entry, Mogwai have steadily been putting out fantastic records since 1997-ish. In that time, they’ve grown and evolved musically while keeping their integrity intact. They never overly experimented and went electronic on an album or did a stripped-down acoustical record(thankfully), but they have honed their musical skills to a near science. This makes each record unique and usually better than the last. A new Mogwai record will always be something to get excited about.

Rano Pano

STRFKR: Reptilians(3/1)

I admit that Starfucker is pretty new to me, as I’m sure they are to many of you. But, after hearing this track, theres plenty to be optimistic about. First of all, Polyvinyl doesn’t typically sign shitty bands, which helps. Secondly, this song was thoughtfully written and if they can continue this innovation and originality for the length of an entire album, I think we’re in for something special.
