Fierce Critters

Dirtnap Records has announced the vinyl release of There Are No Answers, the second album by Houston trio Something Fierce. (Oddly enough, not the first band by that name.)

Dirtnap calls Something Fierce "Unbelievably catchy, well written, well played ... poppy punk with heart, brains, and hooks. If there’s a catchier band in the current American punk underground, they should really send us their demo!" Dirtnap is the label of the Exploding Hearts, the Marked Men, the Ergs, and the Girls, so they know whereof they speak.

Order the LP here and look for Something Fierce on tour in July and August (July 25 in Atlanta at the Drunken Unicorn). You can stream the album here.

Haberdashery vs. Millinery

Travels with Myself and Another, the second album from Future of the Left, came out this week to excellent reviews. You can download a free WOXY session with Future of the Left here (a tip o' the haberdashery to Gimme Tinnitus).

You can get a copy of Future of the Left's live CD, Last Night I Saved Her from Vampires, for less than $10 postpaid from Insound. In the end, everybody wins!

Speaking of live radio sessions, the band Obits performed at WFMU the day after my birthday, and you can download that set from the Free Music Archive.
