On June 23, Baltimore/Stockholm duo Zomes will release a new album, Near Unison, via their own label (also called Near Unison). The LP will be distributed exclusively through Dischord Direct.
From the band: “These visceral and gently imaginative songs come from a year long musical sketch-sharing practice that led the band towards simple compositions inspired by the melodies and intimate storytelling of Swedish and American folk music.”
You can watch a video for the song "Beckoning Breeze" here.
After nearly 10 years out of production, Banned In DC is finally coming back into print.
Assembled by Cynthia Connolly, Leslie Clague, and Sharon Cheslow and originally released in December of 1988, Banned in DC collects hundreds of photos, flyers, and stories documenting the DC punk scene of the mid-’80s.
The intention of the book — one of the first to be published on punk in the US — was to capture the feeling and energy of the movement using stories from the people who were involved. It features images of a number of bands from that time, including Minor Threat, Faith, Marginal Man, Scream, Red C, Bad Brains, Rites of Spring, Nuclear Crayons, Insurrection, Hate from Ignorance, G.I., Void, and Second Wind.
Later this month, Radical Elite will release the self-titled debut LP by XYZ – a collaboration between Ian Svenonius (The Make-Up, Chain & the Gang) and Memphis Electronic (NON!, Dum Dum Boys). The record will be exclusively distributed by Dischord Direct and is available for pre-order now. You can preview the song “Bubblegum” here.
Also: on March 31st, Guy Picciotto will be performing at the Barbican in London as a part of We Have An Anchor, a collaboration between filmmaker Jem Cohen and members of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Dirty Three, White Magic, and Silver Mt. Zion. Find more information on that here.
The vinyl reissue of Rollins Band’s Life Time is also now available via Rollins’ label, 2.13.61. The record - which was first released in 1987 - has been remastered by TJ Lipple and pressed on grey-colored vinyl.
