Brooklynvegan and Punknews Leak New Medusa Album!

huge thanks to the entire Punknews and BrooklynVegan staff for their support!

Medusa (Racebannon) - album out now, streaming, free MP3s (by Black Bubblegum)

DOWNLOAD: Medusa - "Transform" (MP3)
DOWNLOAD: Medusa - "En Raga Sul" (MP3)

Meet Medusa from Bloomington, Indiana. They may not be quite as frightening as the mythical snake-haired devil-woman responsible for turning men into stone, but damn they (tunes) be ugly!

Medusa combines the noise rock asthetic that could only come from 3/4 of Racebannon (or possibly Jesus Lizard), along with an angry pre-Big Business-era Melvins thunder. Medusa's debut record En Raga Sul is out today on Hawthorne Street Records and streaming in it's entirety at Punknews. The band also hooked us up with a little gratis action in the form of the very Stoner Witch-y title track, and "Transform", both of which are available for download above.

* Racebannon dropped Acid or Blood earlier this year and toured with Light Yourself on Fire. The Jesus Lizard is getting back together.
