Canada seems to be bursting at the seams with tons of great new music. In the last few months we’ve reviewed some other Canadian bands such as Jerkswitch, Hangtime, and Trashed Ambulance. All of them I have really enjoyed listening and singing along. Today we’re going to check out the latest release from, Spewers, “A New Disappointment”. 

“No Change” is the first track up. This song is heavy on bass with an old school punk sound. “Citizen” is the next up. Bring your pogo and jump in the pit. It’s fast and fun, like early Black Flag or DK. “I Feel Gray” rolls in next. This track is pure street punk. The bass and drum throw in a disturbing perfect darkness. 

“Sensitive Punks”, follows with a fast heavy progression. Watch out for the pit! It’s gonna get nasty. Now “Slime Category”, is the last track on the EP. The song has a wicked buildup intro into the vocals. This one speaks to all of us that bust our asses. Only to be left with pennies come pay day. This is by far my favorite track as it crosses back and forth with an almost metal sound. 

In review, “A New Disappointment” by Spewers is a fantastic little EP. I honestly wish it was a bit longer. It’s also NYP in the bandcamp store currently, although toss them at least $1.00 a track! You can listen and download here, https://thespewers.bandcamp.com/album/a-new-disappointment

We get a ton of reviews requests on a weekly basis. Some are so good, we can’t refuse. Some we have to pass, because it may not fit our format. On that note if you would like to help keep our reviews and website up, please donate here.

On that note we get a ton of pop punk review requests. Don’t get me wrong I love me some good pop punk, but sometimes you just need some good street punk in your lives. You need the energetic, fuck the establishment, pure and raw sound. Melbourne punks, Dead Already are doing just that with their latest release, “Gilded Age Of Piss”.

This EP is non stop train of old school classic punk straight out the back alleys of Melbourne. With songs like, ‘Nervous Wreck’, ‘This Machine Empowers Facists’ and ‘Darkness Glows’ I find myself fist pumping inside my office. My boss is probably thinking I’ve gone mental. Oh well fuck him anyway. So if you need something to accommodate an angry outburst, socially powerful, Dead Already’s, “Gilded Age Of Piss” is exactly the EP you NEED.

Toronto-based punks, Dirty Work released their new album back on October 12, 2018. CPRA has been slammed with album requests. If you didn’t guess by now we love music! I go into every album review with an extremely open mind. This is because what’s considered “Punk” to someone may not be, “Punk” to another.

We also like to review other subgenres like ska and rockabilly so keeping an open mind is essential when it comes to music. So how is the Dirty Work new album, “In The West End”? In one word, excellent, na two words fucking excellent! I’ve probably listened to this about 20 times in the last 24 hours. This album combines some epic elements, classic punk like the Damned or Subhumans, OI like Cocksparrer and The Business, and old fashioned street punk like the Street Dogs or GBH. There’s also a sweet turbo smash here and there.
I reached out to Sal (Drummer) for comment regarding the new album. “We started writing this album about a year and a half ago. We were hoping to have it out before our last U.S. tour, “Dart’n USA”, when we played at fywrok, but unfortunately the labels that were interested would have needed a year to put it out, so once we got back from that tour we started pressing it ourselves to have it ready for our last Canadian tour, “Hogtown to Halifax”.

We will be touring down to Florida, along the east coast, in April and hopefully back throughout the Midwest next July. Rather than that, a few more Canadian runs and hopeful plans to make it back out along the west coast up through to Denver at some point.

We absolutely love hitting the road and bringing our tunes to new places and new faces. We have started writing new stuff, but no plans as of yet for a new release. Right now we’re just focused on touring this album” Hopefully we get a Denver show sometime in the future!

Some of my personal favorite tracks are, ‘Let’s Hit The Road’, ‘Ready To Go’, ‘Never Say Die’, ‘In The West End’, and ‘Hogtown Hooligans’. My favorite by far is ‘Force To Fight’. The drums are wicked good, and the gutter style is just fucking epic.

I’ve laced my reviews with expletives so my job here is done. This album is guaranteed to blow your speakers out! Pick up this record, right now, https://dirtyworkofficial.bandcamp.com/.
