X

While everyone is social distancing, closing ranks and donning masks while they shop, life can seem somewhat surreal to the senses. Yet, through all of the chaos, one thing is constant, music brings us together. Now, on the 40th Anniversary of the landmark, Los Angeles, and 35 years since the original band have released an album – X, one of the greatest Punk Rock bands in music history, releases ALPHABETLAND today via Bandcamp. The original foursome - Exene Cervenka, John Doe, Billy Zoom, and DJ Bonebrake have now made the album available for fans to purchase and by adapting to this moment, X continues to embody the same spirit they did when they began in 1977.

“When your heart is broken you think every song is about that. These songs were written in the last 18 months & it blows my mind how timely they are,” explained John Doe. “We all want our family, friends & fans to hear our records as soon as it's finished. This time we could do that. Thanks to Fat Possum & our audience.”

Dream Wife

Dream Wife (Alice Go, Bella Podpadec and Rakel Mjöll) are back with their second album and just like the title suggests, this is a record brimming with adrenaline and playful excitement ('It's an invitation, a challenge, a call to action,' says Rakel). From the jagged, CSS-like guitar of 'So When You Gonna'' to the hooky brightness of album opener 'Sports!' and the whip-smart lyrical asides of 'Validation', these are moreish, pumped up, sparkling tracks that feel like newer, dynamic evolutions of debut standouts, like 'F.U.U.' and 'Hey Heartbreaker.' But they often lean into sweeter, softer, more emotional moments too. 'Temporary' and 'After the Rain' in particular ' songs about miscarriage and abortion, respectively ' are complicated, painful stories told through a soft and hopeful lens. These were difficult subjects to write about, but Dream Wife think it's important to bring these conversations into the public sphere, to refuse to brush things under the rug, to empower and support others in the process. Dream Wife have always been outspoken about holding up other womxn and non-binary people in the creative industries, but these aren't just words or sentiments. With a gender divide in music production currently estimated at around ninety-five percent male to five percent female, the band are proud to have worked with an all-female recording team for So When You Gonna..., including producer and mixer Marta Salogni (Björk, Holly Herndon, FKA Twigs) engineer Grace Banks (David Wrench, Marika Hackman) and mastering engineer Heba Kadry (Princess Nokia, Alex G, Beach House). 'It was a way of us practicing what we preach,' says Alice, 'It felt like an honour to be able to deliver this baby with these three amazing midwives.' 'Put your money where your mouth is!' adds Rakel, quoting the lyrics of 'Sports!'

Neck Deep

With this album Neck Deep wants to continue carving out their own unique space within rock, punk, and alternative music. They have no delusions of "saving rock" or being the biggest rock band out there. They just want to remain Neck Deep and be an even bigger, better Neck Deep than before. They understand their roots are in pop punk, but want to expand on their sound in their own way, taking inspiration from artists like The Beatles and Nirvana who did things their own way and still were able to be massive.

blink-182
To record their third album Enema Of The State, Blink182 turned to veteran punk rock producer Jerry Finn, who previously worked on Green Day's breakthrough album, Dookie (1994). Enema was the band's first album to feature drummer Travis Barker, who replaced original drummer Scott Raynor. Lyrically, the album is inspired by adolescent frustration and relationships. Guitarist Tom DeLonge and bassist Mark Hoppus primarily culled stories from friends and autobiographical situations to craft summery tracks revolving around breakups, suburban parties and maturity, as well as more offbeat subject matter such as UFO conspiracy theories. The cover artwork for Enema of the State features porn star Janine Lindemulder famously clad in a nurse uniform, and the title is a pun on the term enemy of the state. Enema of the State was an enormous commercial success. The album sold over 15 million copies worldwide, catapulting the band to become one of the biggest rock bands of the turn of the century. 'What's My Age Again?', 'All the Small Things' and 'Adam's Song' became hit singles and MTV staples, generating heavy radio airplay. Enema of the State had an extensive impact on contemporary pop punk, reinventing it for a new generation and spawning countless tributes and acolytes.

Terminal Tower [LP]

New Vinyl: $21.98 Buy

Terminal Tower is #23 on Rolling Stone's Top 40 Punk Albums of all-time and one of the only remaining punk rock gems yet to return to vinyl. This collection of non-LP and B-sides is long out of print in both CD and LP and interestingly has never been released digitally. Releasing 16 albums over a 40+ year career and continuously helmed by singer/songwriter, David Thomas, the band has been one of the foundations of Avant Garde and Punk Rock in the U.S. and overseas.
