Hot off the press


New songs, old art.

Welcome to the latest episode of Wednesdays With Andrew, your weekly overdose of punk (and punkish!) rock.

Today's playlist features nothing but the freshest tunes, released in August, from some incredible bands. While we feature only brand spankin' new tracks, today's episode art is a throwback to the retro #WWA style...thanks for your minutes of tireless effort there, B-Side!

Get a taste of some recently-released new material from bands like Swingin' Utters, The Frights, Night Birds, Slothrust, IDLES and more, NOW:



Liner notes:


On today's episode, all the bands we feature are making music great again



For those who rocked today's episode, we salute you. Go support all these artists for the tireless work they do to bring joy to our ear holes:





Slothrust
edit - I fudged and said this album was released last week (it's still in pre-release) The Pact isn't publicly available until Sept 14, but you can still listen to some tracks off the forthcoming album! And trust me it's gonna be worth the extra week and change wait to listen to the whole thing.






For anyone who has not yet seen the demon Mr Bubz video, you're welcome:



Aright that's a lot of new music for my brain, time for a nap. Tune in next week for more punk (and punkish!) rock
