Rational Animals

Rational Animals is a hardcore punk band from Rochester, NY. They play catchy and brilliant 80's hardcore since they formed in 2006. They have since released 2 EP's which I haven't been able to stop playing and then this year they put out their debut LP and the band has progressed into a noise-rock direction and I can't complain at all. My 2nd favourite hardcore band right now after The Men. Buy their shit while you can.

Birth Deformities

Birth Deformities is one of the best bands I've heard in a long, long time. Fast, catchy, raw and pissed off but fun 80's style hardcore punk. Get this fucking shit now. Members of Cülo. Get this if you enjoy hardcore or punk at all. I've been wanting to post this for ages now but haven't gotten around to it for some reason. Demo of the year. YOU'RE DEFORMED.

The Men

The Men are a nasty noise punk/hardcore punk band from Brooklyn, NY. I'm in love with this band. Catchiest and coolest bass-driven hardcore songs with a noisy and dirty garage punk layer. Very original and on their later records they tend to experiment a lot with shoegaze and noise. Leave Home is, hands down, the record of the year. Dig in.

We were all sad when Aerosols and Wasteland called it quits but the vocalist (Chris) is back, this time relocated to NYC, with new band Suburbanite. They play catchy, rough and pissed off old style hardcore. Definately one of the best releases of 2011.

If you want to buy this record, too fucking bad. It sold out immediately and I have yet to locate any sites where you can purchase it. You could try to buy it from some dickheads on ebay though.
