Rejoice, for Self Love is finally upon us. Not really, but do yourself a sonic favor and head over to VICE to stream the highly-anticipated (especially by us) two-track split that features two of our very favorite bands, Touche Amore and the eternally prolific Self Defense Family, working as one spectacular, chaotic musical outfit. It’s everything one could hope a mash-up of two of Deathwish’s darlings would produce. Expect a gushing review shortly. This AND the Self Defense Family/Creative Adult split are both out March 10 on Deathwish. Order them here and here, respectively.
But wait! There’s more! Under the cut check out a new track from Westkust (members of Makthaverskan, on tour with Self Defense Family and Creative Adult right now. SDF is everywhere. Succumb.), a new LP from Lady Lamb, and a catchy new track from Death Cab for Cutie.
Electricity and an internet connection remain for the time being, so it seems like a good time to dispatch some of the new music we’ve got today…

Stop me if you think you’ve heard this one before, but it won’t do you any good. It’s out of my hands. Like a resentful young runaway to its parent, my Top 10 list has fled the nest and now ekes out a meager existence of its own in the cold, windy byways of the internet. If you cross paths with it, give it a read, and maybe some money for the bus.
(I’ve attempted to avoid redundancy with the other writers as best as possible, but a few we just unavoidably agree upon. Therefore, I give shouts to PUP, Hostage Calm (RIP), and The Menzingers for their efforts this year. Further honorable mention to Angel Du$t and 10,000 Blades, oh my god.)
Seems that there hadn’t been too much going on this week in terms of new songs from upcoming releases, but fear not, sweet summer child, because a cornucopia of new releases dropped just today. Check below for streams of Self Defense Family’s new 7″ and Dads new LP, plus a bonus track from Little Big League. Enjoy the aural pleasure.
