Here's Blessed State from Northampton, MA, with their latest EP Slipstream, released a few weeks back.
I have a real weakness for aggressive punk that seamlessly intertwines itself with pretty melodies, and Blessed State have this down to a fine art. The performances are organic and energetic, translating well to tape while still giving the impression these guys would be a brilliant live band.
Not sure if it's the changing weather, but I'm really feeling this sound this week. Grab the download or the tape on bandcamp.
