2017 Punk Rock

Postby chuckjaywalk » Thu Jul 27, 2017 3:02 pm

With things as they are, I feel like there should be good punk rock now. I mean, the Reagan era made for amazing hardcore. What's out there now?

Nothing cool, that's why skramz is having a revival, power violence too it seems.

New LIMP WRIST album next month. It will most likely rule all.

New Propagandhi coming soon too.

Was the Mothercountry Motherfuckers LP this year? If it was 2016, it was late. Either way, it's a ripper. Anything Sarah Kirsch was involved in was excellent.

I just released this comp on my label. Some of the bands my band has played with over the past few years that have been really good.

Chuck, check out the youtube channel JIMMY. He is semi-retired now but there is a wealth of excellent present day punk.
I know you are into post-punk / goth rock / death rock material like myself. I think you would like INSTITUTE a lot. The older material is great but they did release a new LP this year which I have had on heavy repeat.

Also the 'Fucked By Noise' blog and 'Cut & Paste' blog are excellent resources for punk, hardcore, d-beat, power violence - anything in that spectrum.

That new Propagandhi single isn't bad, but it's pretty formulaic for them.

Metal riff to start, sustained chords with some indignant vocabulary words, harmony, riff riff riff

I agree that they've become a liitle bit more predictable for every new record they put out since Potemkin but I still really enjoy what they do.
Imo they've kinda created their own sound/genre and in that area no one does it better.

Disagree about Propagandhi being predictable.

The new single in isolation sounds distinctly Propagandhi, though I'm looking forward to hearing it in context with the record. I don't expect the LP to be a bunch of songs that sound just like that.

However, Failed States has many songs on it touching on sounds and structures they've not really come close to before. The opening track being a huge example. They've never done anything that sounded anything like that. Lots of songs incorporating the 2nd guitar player much more, making them sound like a bigger, much more layered band than they did before. That record was a huge shift sonically. Moreso than you see from the vast majority of punk bands. Punk bands don't usually add a 2nd guitar player 20 years later.

On the record before it, again, the opening track is massively different to anything that has come before. All of Todd's songs are incredibly fresh and unlike what he brought to the recordings prior. Dear Coach's Corner, Human(e) Meat, Potemkin City Limits, Without Love are hugely melodic vocally, which wasn't something they'd focused on before. They had 2 guitars on this record, but the new guy had just joined, and it's much less pronounced than what they did with Failed States.

Now they've got a different 2nd guitar player and I'd read she has contributed material to this new record. I'd be surprised if it's Propagandhi by numbers, if there was such a thing. I'd struggle to name a punk band that push the envelope with each new record than Propagandhi do.

I picked up the new Integrity album today - would give it 4 out of 5 fire emojis. I wish it had more slow jams but I'm probably in the minority on that.

Ok ok, maybe "predictable" is the wrong word. Perhaps "formulaic" as neon stated, is a better word. At least it doesn't have that negative sound to it.
They certainly push the limits of "punk", although I'm not sure that label works for them anymore, in a good way, and I do enjoy what they're doing! As mentioned I'm stoked on what Sulynn has brought into the band.
