For complete unadulterated hardcore punk that runs under six minutes, you’ll want to check out a new EP by Providence, Rhode Island’s Thumbscrews called Life Is Pure Joy. The EP is six songs in length, with the longest song just under two minutes, and it sounds like it was freshly recorded in their garage or basement, but comes off great. trange High House have released the EP on cassette, only 50 copies are being pressed. I hope these guys end up going into a proper studio to record a few things, and even if they’re limited to just three albums or two EP’s and five 7″ EP’s, I’ll be happy.

The guys in Lazyeyes are hard at work on working on an EP that will be released before the end of the year, and from it is a s ong called “Islip”, which is a bit of altera-rock with the kind of twists and feel that may remind some of 80’s new wave, with the kind of freedom that will make you extend your hands and fingers into the sky. The Brooklyn group will be in their hometown next week Friday at Rough Trade, come and see them.
Pop of an independent nature is what Colorado’s Hilary Hand & The Roseliers do, and they do it quite well. They’ve alreayd been compared to the likes of St. Vincent and Tegan and Sara, and now you may cite Hilary Hand & The Roseliers. Check out “Run Like A Rabbit” to see how they run off with you, and then wait (im)patiently for their album, which will be released in the new year.
With a name like The Last American B-Boy, it either comes off like he is the last to exist in the hip-hop community, or it’s a non-humorous version of The Last American Virgin. The B-Boy himself is true to his moniker, rhyming like someone who deserves to be praised and honored, but that comes with time and experience in the b-boy world, which he will continue to do when he releases his new Nickel Bag project next season (which begins in a few days). “Tagged” was directed by The Last American B-Boy himself and as you will see and hear, he doesn’t fool around.

With a title like “HVY BL NSS PRR”, it might lead you to think “what does that mean? Or how do I say this>” If you’re confused, don’t fear for I was a bit too.
