The Death Set

Michel Poiccard


Sounds Like: The Aussies turned Brooklynites spew spastic punk-flavored electronic hype music with screamy vocals and fist-pounding mosh pit energy.

Free Association: These guys must be slamming Five Hour Energy drinks non-stop.

For Fans Of: Go! Team on speed, Bow Wow Wow x Buzzcocks, Monster drinks.

And You WIll Know Us by the Trail of Dead

Tao of the Dead

(Superball Music)

Sounds Like: Those cooky Austin prog-rockin’ dweebs who disappeared (rightly so) for a while are back with a shockingly good effort on this not-awful seventh LP.

Free Association: If you can see past all the fantastical crap it sounds pretty badass.

For Fans Of: Unwound x Superchunk, Foo Fighters + Mastodon, fantasy metal tools.

Dropkick Murphys

Going Out In Style

(Born & Bred)

Sounds Like: Their first in four years is just like all the others—vaguely Irish rhythms, instruments, themes and accents with a fratty punk feel perfect for State Fairs.

Free Association: Assholes around Boston are so effing pumped for this.

For Fans Of: Guinness, the Celts and Sox, Colin Quinn, St. Patrick’s Day.
