Ocean City, Maryland folk-punk artist Human Kitten has announced he will be releasing 2 EPs simultaneously by the end of summer. The EPs will be titled “New Game” and “Game Over.” You can find tentative tracklists for both releases below.
Elijah Llinas, the singer-songwriter behind Human Kitten, recently theorized that his most recent album release, “I’m Afraid of Everything,” may have been the last release under the name Human Kitten. However with the announcement of these two EPs Elijah stated: “HUMAN KITTEN ISN’T OVER. I’m currently aiming to simultaneously release a pair of two 7-song companion EPs by the end of the summer entitled “New Game” and “Game Over,” that will explore beginnings and endings, expectations and realities, pasts and futures, and all of the parallels they end up creating… Now I just have to start recording. See ya on the other side.”

Well here’s a fun and weird little story. Derek Zanetti, who’s better known as the one-man show that is The Homeless Gospel Choir has uncovered what he reports is a hard drive containing thousands of off little songs and snippets that he’s determined equate to about six hours of usable, listenable material. He’s going to release them in a series of limited cassette tape releases, and the first of them, called “Misunderstood and Sweaty,” is now available. You can pick up yours here, but they’re limited to 200, so maybe act fast?

I’d usually say, anything Dave Hause touches is pure gold, but that would seriously sell Cory Branan short on this one. The Richmond, Virginia-based singer/songwriter extraordinaire took on social injustice and police brutality beautifully in his new song ‘Another Nightmare In America‘ whilst The Loved Ones frontman came in more to give the track some extra layers.
‘Another Nightmare In America’ is one of the singles from Branan’s upcoming album ‘ADIOS’. You can give it a spin here.

If you somehow missed it a few months ago, Chicago folk-punk artist Davey Dynamite digitally released “Holy Shit”, one of the best punk albums of 2016, in December – stream it or download it for free below if you don’t believe me. Now its time for you physical release collectors to get yours in the form of cassette or vinyl.
As if that wasn’t exciting enough, Davey has just announced two vinyl release shows in the Chicago area:
If you’re new to Davey Dynamite he is as political as he is emotional and one might say he is the folk-gone-electric lineage of O Pioneers! and Against Me! born anew in the vein of Chicago punk rock. “Holy Shit” is his first fully-plugged in album and it was released digitally through our very own Dying Scene Records on December 20th.

I must admit I hadn’t heard of Chicago bred, “intrepid songwriter and lightning-fingered banjoist/guitarist” Al Scorch until a press release for his new music video hit the DS inbox. Dutifully clicking play despite the off-putting press photo that accompanied the announcement, I stumbled on to what I’m sure will be my favorite folk-punk song discovery of the entire year.
“Everybody Out” is a cut from Scorch’s most recent album “Circle Round The Signs” released last May on Bloodshot Records, and I have no idea what is going on in its freakishly bizarre music video but I don’t care. The song is f’ing awesome and I just bought the entire album sight unseen because of it.
Scorch says this about the video:
“Coming from a community of punks, queers, puppeteers, and activists, I’ve never felt totally comfortable in the folk/country/Americana realm. Folks have been really welcoming, though, and while some of the audiences — and other musicians for that matter — might have more traditional views and lifestyles, I’ve met a lot of people who are willing to consider and question and have conversations. As artists, we can’t be afraid to challenge people right now; it’s more important than ever.”
Check out the music video for “Everybody Out” below. When its done I suggest just listening to the song one more time without the video. If you don’t fall in love with it, you’re not a fan of any banjo infused folk-punk.
