Weirdly, I felt like I didn’t cover too much last week, but apparently we got in at least 15 new songs, plus a few extras. I’m getting pickier in my old age, but mostly just figure you read Stereogum first, so no need to cover what they’re covering in their Premature Ejaculation column. I started out this week’s playlist with a cover from Screaming Females, but bookend it with the OG from The Selecter, cuz why the fuck not. Our friends Humdrum had a new hit, and that glorious Papercuts LP finally dropped in. It’s Monday, and there’s jams…I’m just over here listening to the first wave British ska.
Feel like kicking off Friday by throwing a little fun pop punk right in your face, courtesy of Australia’s Loveboner. The duo are prepping the release of their new record, Loveboner are Reinventing Oral Sex, which drops in June via Psychic Hysteria. It’s the sort of tongue-in-cheek fun you’d expect on an old punk CD on early Fat Wreck Chords, though they’re spinning it out with a little sincerity; the album deals with themes of trans identity, queer romance, homoerotic action movies, and of course, step-dads. You’re getting amped for the weekend, and Fridays are fun, so turn it up and sing along!
