Straight A’s are getting ready to release their first full-length record on Noise Pollution. Entitled “Self Help”, it was recorded in the Summer of 2009 by Trip Barriger at Studio K (hope you weren’t surprised by that) except for the song “Trestles” which was recorded by Brian Lueken at Skull Alley. With eighteen songs in about 35 minutes featuring guests appearances by Thommy Browne (By the Grace of God, Chime Hours, et al), Susan Crocker and Dan Moore (Lucky Pineapple) the A’s are seeking to outdo themselves in terms of flexibility and range from their self titled 7″.
Here’s a note from the guys about the record being released: “Straight A’s will play the SXSE festival. Friday April 23rd. We will be joined by Thommy Browne on 2nd drums and will have advance copies of our debut album “Self Help”. Come pick up a copy (or two) before that other guy and have some fun with us!”
I didn’t know about this when I posted the “upcoming releases” post a few days back, but The Teeth, Rude Weirdo, and Mother Tongue are not only playing together at the Pour Haus on April 18th (forum post says 3/18 though), but a free CD of all the bands will be available at the door. Nadeem says “Badass flyer coming soon”.
A lot of these are little bit outside LHxC’s normal scope or focus for one reason or another, but so what. Go whine somewhere else. Like… the message boards.
Millions (Chicago) has a new record dropping TODAY Yesterday on 7th Rule Records. Entitled “Gather/Scatter”, it’s 8 tracks of what you want to hear if you want to hear loud, abrasive rock. Wow, how much more fucking vague can I be? This is why I don’t write reviews very often. Anyway…… Vocals are belted out by Louisvillian Corey Lyons (SHP, Bodyhammer) which is why I’m posting it here (and because he is all over the forums). Great bass tones on this record, btw. Catch these guys on Monday, Apr. 6th as they swing through on their way back from tour. They’ll probably be here later in the year again after their Euro tour. (more…)
