Listening to an MP3 of Out of System Transfer’s newest record Junkyard Golem has to be somewhat like trying to hook a rotary dial phone up to a wireless router, it’s just not compatible. Frontman Jesse Sternberg really was born about 80 years too late for his favored musical aesthetic. His voice is one meant for tin can microphones, the sides of dusty roads, old-timey dance halls, not be crudely emanating from a smartphone music app.
That being said, purchase the MP3 so hopefully, the band can make a vinyl happen.
The record is a raise of the fist for protest punk and an easily moshible Hodge podge of folk-punk influences. At times it’s easy to hear Out Of System Transfer;s affinity for Ghost Mice and at other times if you listen closely enough you can hear Pat The Bunny shining through. But all throughout the 15-track album Sternberg;s passion for traditional folk tunes holds it all together.
While a lot of the more notable folk punk acts are starting to lean a little more punk and a little less folk Out of System Transfer is making a hard move in the opposite direction. Their sound is grounded in an era of folk punkery that didn’t include an electric guitar. Of course there are plenty of oogles nationwide driving around in broke down vans and strumming on their washtub bases but not many of them are bringing the level of talent to their songwriting that OOST are.
The record is so much more than a folky fuck you to “the man.” It’s a piece of art orchestrated by a musician with an ear for the dulcet tones of folk and heart based steadfastly in punk. Their folk cover of C.R.A.S.S;s “Well, Do they” is one of the strongest tunes on the record and by no fault of Sternberg’s songwriting. It’s just that the group quite obviously jelled around a classic punk tune that relied more on their attitude of play than individual talent.
I have been fond of saying “folk is thTransfer may exhibit that better than most.
Often times the songs themselves are about struggle and sorrow but that doesn’t mean they can’t sound great, make you happy, and be totally danceable. Junkyard Golem is barnstormer of a record just like the band that released it and it’s honestly quite hard to believe that music like that is still being made in a huge modern city like New York. But following the folksteps of artists like Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie, Out Of System Transfer is putting the tales of woe in the North East to music commonly associated with the South West.
So often in folk-punk the talent is put in the backseat in favor of raw emotion, it’s refreshing to see an act putting out quality songs while still maintaining a real sense of authenticity with the genre.

Chicago folk-punk artist Davey Dynamite has just premiered what might be the most aggressively charged anthem off his upcoming album “Holy Shit”. It’s about the fact that the average American CEO makes 380 times more than the average American blue collar worker called and it’s aptly titled “380 Times”. Its being streamed by good pals ForTheLoveOfPunk.com and you can give it a listen here!
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 will be released digitally through our very own Dying Scene Records on December 20th while the folks at Don’t Panic Records & Distro are handling vinyl (pre-order here).
If you missed it earlier, you can also stream the album’s title track and single “Rock And Roll” over on the Dying Scene Records bandcamp.

On December 20th Chicago folk-punk artist Davey Dynamite will release his first fully-plugged in album “Holy Shit” through our very own Dying Scene Records. I’m unbelievably proud to be putting this album out partly because as a human and as an artist Davey represents everything I love about punk rock, but mostly because I just think this album so damn good. To see what I mean you can stream “Rock And Roll”, one of the album’s catchiest tunes, right now on Punknews.

Tucson folk punk outfit Ramshackle Glory has announced a final album following their breakup last year. The album, titled “One Last Big Job,” will be released on cassette tape through Get Better! Records and is set to be released December 30.
On the final album and the breakup of the band, Patrick Schneeweis said on June 1st, 2016: “RAMSHACKLE GLORY is a retired anarchist punk band that was based out of Tucson, AZ. This is our last release. Our band lasted from 2010-2016. We put out three full length albums, one split album with the folk punk band Ghost Mice, and toured every year. We donated money to a large number of anarchist and radical political projects, and distributed a lot of free political literature on a variety of topics. We stood up for our values as much as we knew how to. I’m proud of everyone in our band for doing what we did together. This project was hard on all of us in different ways, but in the end we took care of each other as much as we know how to. That isn’t something to take for granted. I actually think it’s all we have. Thanks to everyone who helped us, tolerated our mistakes and our crankiness, and listened to our music. You have funny taste. So do I.
Pre-orders for the cassette of the album can be found here, whilst the digital download or a physical CD is available for pre-order through the band’s Bandcamp page here. You can find the album art above, and the tracklist below.

If you’ve been more than the periphery of the Against Me! fandom circle for any real length of time, chances are you’ve come across the name David Dondero. As the legend goes, Dondero and Laura Jane Grace, trace their histories back to the mid-90s, when they appeared on the same bill at a show in a laundromat in Gainesville, Florida. More recently, Dondero opened the small handful of solo shows that Grace played earlier this year as a precursor to what would eventually be the release of Grace’s book, Tranny.
Dondero just released a brand-new EP, “With Love,” and the six-song effort was not only produced by Grace in her Florida studio, but marks the first non-Against Me! release on the band’s label, Total Treble Records. Here’s Dondero on how it came about:
“In the autumn of 2012, I was touring through Florida and I happened to run into Laura Jane Grace in St. Augustine. I had a batch of new songs, so she was like, ‘You should come by my new studio tomorrow and check it out! It was a happy accident. I just came in, checked out the studio and she was like, ‘You wanna play a couple songs?’ So I played these songs then had to go onto Orlando, and that was that. We ended up recording all six songs in just about an hour. I think we did them all in one take and then they were shelved when the studio closed after being crushed by a falling tree.”

It’s been a hectic few months for Atlanta folk punkers Aree and The Pure Heart. Earlier in 2016, they signed with Bearded Punk Records, shortly after which, they released their debut, five track EP Heartsongs. Now, to end their whirlwind year, the bucolic band is back with their very first music video! The video (for the stellar single “American Love” from the aforementioned EP) captures a simpler, grittier side of classic Americana and features the hallmark, genuine sound that we’ve come to expect from this infectious up and coming act. If you’re a fan of Steady Hands or early Against Me!, you’re definitely going to want to check this one out. Give it a peep below!
