It's time once more to catch up on the unabridged Post-Trash “Year In Review” with releases that went under the radar, the hidden gems, and the essential records from the past twelve months. This is our comprehensive guide to our favorite releases of the year without a pre-determined length.
“Post-Trash Live” returns for episode two. Careful to avoid the sophomore slump, hosts Nick Dooley and Dan Goldin discuss the idea of record label identities while sharing more of this year’s highlights. From “poptimism” to that one commercially acceptable noise rock band of the year, all is discussed together with new music.
The quintet's album, Blatant, is just that - there's about as much subtlety here as a hammer to the skull. Self described as "weak hardcore," Dan Shaw and company have built themselves a deviant post-punk record thick with wit and abrasive tonality, skewering everything from the far-right to environmental disasters.
