In rare thing, we're just going to tell you to go listen to this EP from Richmond's Wake
. We got the e-mail announcing the impending vinyl release of the self-titled 7-inch yesterday, and promptly started listening. It's snotty hardcore, and while Rival Mob might be the big new in terms of hardcore releases this week, take a moment (quite literally, less than ten minutes) to listen to Wake. It's almost better than a big cup of coffee to wake you up and get you moving. It kicks off with thirty seconds of gang vocals, so get your fist-pumping and finger-pointing skills up to snuff before you click play.
The vinyl is so newly-announced, Glass Nail Records
doesn't even know the colors yet. It'll be out in July, though, and you can pre-order that sucker through the Glass Nail store
. How's that for being on the bleeding edge of news?
