Pop punk will never die, but you will. The Moore Family Band‘s debut album “Missy” is only 22 minutes long but has more hooks than a fancy React application (sorry, no more front-end jokes in this space). That would be easy to explain with Jeff Rosenstock’s presence in a couple of tracks, but the Californian trio consistently delivers the goods elsewhere in the record.

Max Clarke, aka Cut Worms, sounds a bit like if Jim James was sent back to the 60s in a time capsule to perform in folk-rock and Merseybeat outfits. His new double LP “Nobody Lives Here Anymore” has to be our most anticipated release of the year. We tried very hard not to include all of the nine (!) advance songs Jagjaguwar has slowly put out in the past five months. Now that it’s all out, its 77 minutes will take a lot of time to digest – mostly because it’s impossible to not get hooked in one or another of the nuggets hidden inside this record.
Plus: new tracks by Dawes, Drive-By Truckers, CAAMP, Wendy Eisenberg, Slow Pulp, Fast Friends, Pearl Charles, Caroline Spence, Liz Longley, Magik Markers, The Antlers, Psychic Temple, North Americans, Mary Lattimore, Garcia Peoples, Mdou Moctar, The Budos Band, Rob Mazurek, Gustaf, METZ, Wild Pink, Buck Meek, The Bad Oats, Shaela Miller, and Jackson Emmer.
