Here’s a rundown of what I’ve been listening to as of late.

Muuy Biien, Age Of Uncertainty (Autumn Tone)

Hailing from the great southern music Mecca, Athens GA, which gave us REM, B-52s, and Pylon among others, comes Muuy Biien with their third album Age Of Uncertainty. I was completely in the dark about this band prior to this album, so I can’t compare it to their two previous efforts, but according to the press release Muuy Biien have departed from their old sound and embraced a new one more akin to Suicide and The Gun Club. That’s fine by me. I’m very much enjoying this dark, downbeat, and noisy album. Catch them on tour if you can; apparently they put on a great show! For more visit, https://muuybiien.bandcamp.com/

The Peep Temple, Joy (Wing Sing)

Melbourne Australia’s The Peep Temple have also released their third album, called Joy, and it absolutely is. It’s fantastic, prickly, post-punk in a Mission Of Burma/Big Black tradition. “Ray Guns” and “Don’t Race” are probably the two stand-out tracks, for those looking to sample before diving in, but the album taken in as a whole is really rewarding. I’ve been missing bands like this. Check them out on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thepeeptempel/

The Wrong Results, Raw EP (self-released)

What better timing for some old school political hardcore? From Eagle Pass/Clutch City TX, The Wrong Result’s new EP Raw is three solid blasts ofreally good punk rock. The sound is a bit like an early Epitaph Records release, which is always a welcome thing. The band is tight and have stepped up their game from their Wrong EP in terms of songwriting and production. The only downside to Raw is that it has only three songs. Looking forward to The Wrong Results’ debut LP! Follow the band on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thewrongresults/
