The Dopamines and Dear Landlord releasing split on Paper + Plastick

First of all, I hope you readers appreciate the fact that I’ve decided to stay in on a Saturday night just so I could find and write stories like this one just for you.

It would appear that a pretty kickass Midwest punk split is in the works between Ohio’s The Dopamines and Minnesota’s Dear Landlord.  Wait, is Minnesota considered Midwest?  That stuff has always confused me… But I digress.  Not much is known about the release other than it looks to be coming out on Paper + Plastick Records.  You can check out the cover art and the source of this half-baked story right here.

Dear Landlord recording new material next month

Minneapolis’ punk group Dear Landlord have a treat for their fans: They are headed to Chicago at the beginning of next month (December) to record four new songs they call follow-up tracks to their latest album Dream Homes. Two of these songs will be on a 7″ spilt with The Dopamines, and that is to be released early next year on Paper + Plastick. The other two will be on another split, this time with Toys That Kill, to be released early next year on No Idea Records.

The reasoning behind this batch of new songs to be recorded is simple: Drummer Brad explains, “With only 763 days until the Mayan calendar ends, we are trying to make the most of the time we have left as a band.” That’s completely logical.

While in Chicago, Dear Landlord is going to be playing a show on December 5th at the Subterranean with Chinese Telephones, Vacation Bible School, and No Enemy.

Album Review: Dear Landlord – “Dream Homes”

It wouldn’t be fair to say that Dear Landlord’s “Dream Homes” went unnoticed in 2009, but it certainly didn’t make as big a splash in the pop-punk scene as it probably deserved to. With great hooks, singalongs, and a tremendous sense of fun, this album should have been at the top of every pop-punk fan’s list last December.

Right from the get-go, “I Live in Hell” tells you what the tone of this record is going to be like. Smirking sarcasm emanates from every line like “I live in hell with the drunken Christians/They’re away from their parents for the first time/They can’t take it.”

Zack Gontard of Off With Their Heads fame and Brett Hunter from the Copyrights trade vocals, which gives the album a nice blend of the gruff Minneapolis sound with the slicker Illinois appeal. Short and sweet tunes like “Goodbye to Oakland” and “Doormat” pack a lot into a little time, while super-melodic songs like “Landlocked” really put the “pop” in “pop-punk.”

The only complaints that a pop-punker could have about this album is that the highlight track “High Fives” already appeared on Dear Landlord’s superb split with Off With Their Heads, albeit recorded at different times.

Go pick this album up if you’re into pop-punk at all, especially if into bands like Off With Their Heads, Dillinger Four, and the Copyrights. Chances are it won’t disappoint.
