Blank Square Release Single, Charmer Gears Up for New Album - Animal I

The San Francisco based punk/no wave band, Blank Square has released a new single, Charmer in anticipation for their upcoming album, Animal I. Their new album will be released on February 24th. Take a listen to Charmer and make sure you pick up a copy of Animal I.

Animal I. Leaning towards the weirder end of Flesheaters but with a sterility that can only be contemporarily compared to Total Control’s Aussie hardcore quarantine no wave and then a pinch of what made DNA and Mars amazing.

 It’s captured with plenty of concrete and sheet metal kept in the mix and a highlight towards dissonant syncopations. Recorded in what my minds eye makes into a empty room minus one chair and definitely down a flight of wet, cement stairs. Saxophone with a mild but nauseating-at-times rippling slap delay, cruising on a rhythm section that sounds like they’ve got another house show to play tonight after this one. Rectangular in all the right places, uncomfortable like sleeping in a car (but hey, you do what you have to do). If you love art in your sax punk, then you will what’s going on in the Bay like we do, but this reaches waaaay back into California’s punk history (SST would’ve undoubtedly dug this).

Loose Buttons release "Sundays With" EP during Pianos residency

New York's very own Loose Buttons have been at it for ten years, and some already-released tracks from their upcoming EP -- titled Sundays With Loose Buttons -- already prove that the band's still in it for more. We wrote about a single from this EP -- "Milk & Roses" -- back in December, but you can stream the newest track, called "Between Brick Walls", below.

Loose Buttons are currently doing a month-long residency at PIANOS in the Lower East Side. After tonight, they'll play also on on February 15th and February 22nd, just ahead of the release, which is scheduled for February 24th. Keep an eye out for it. - Will Sisskind

New Shelf Life EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

More of Double, the latest EP from Shelf Life, stirs, led in most part by strumming acoustic guitar with flecks of keys/electronics. Open honesty compels in an unguarded manner as the lyrics dig deep below the surface. These pared-back songs pull one closer, placing the spotlight on the lyrics and leaving it open to interpretation. The overall feel is endearing. Soak in the delicate melancholy remembrance, and head out to All Night Diner this Friday, February 10, where Shelf Life is slated on a bill that also includes Brittle Brian, Chef Kiss, and Microsoft Saint.
