La Dispute Announces New Album "Wildlife" * Premieres New Music at NPR

La Dispute: Half-Spoken Explosions

La Dispute has all the hooks of a pop-punk band raised on At the Drive-In, as well as a surprising sense of restrained propulsion for a hardcore band. But La Dispute's most distinctive weapon is vocalist Jordan Dreyer, who alternates an almost conversational, raspy scream with spoken word.

400 Blows Release and Stream New Album "Sickness and Health"

The Icarus Line Premieres New Song "We Want More" feat. Ariel Pink

Song: Icarus Line feat. Ariel Pink, “We Want More”

The Icarus Line’s Joe Cardamone has an itch for those forgotten days when you could turn on the radio and hear a classic tune that made you just want to break a few laws. In the band’s 13-plus years, they’ve morphed from a post-punk punch in the face into a swelling, poetic, often tender and eyebrow-raising refraction of Cardamone’s retrospection. But there’s nothing like some big guitars to get the juices (creative or other) flowing.

The Sainthood Reps Release and Stream Debut Album "Monoculture"

Stream of the month: Sainthood Reps, Monoculture

...the prettiness is periodically scraped away and chucked in the incinerator by Sherman and crew’s angular, post-hardcore noise-mongering. In fact, Sainthood Reps remind me at times of Frodus, and that’s a great thing.
