4 Bangin’ Antifascist Albums For The End Of Summer

Future You by The Mommyheads

The Mommyheads are an indie-prog-pop band who were signed and sacked by a large record label in the late 90’s and who developed a pretty big cult following during that same decade. They split. They got back together. Now they are just about to release a new album, their twelfth effort, and supposedly it is quite the political piece. In any case, it is a stunningly entertaining album. I caught up with Micheal from the band and he said that this political roll they are on started two albums back:

“Our second-to-newest album, Soundtrack to the World’s End, is full of warnings about the profound sickness of industrialized society, and its destruction of the Earth. Our newest album, Future You, expands on those societal and environmental alarms, and adds political ones, by feeling into the fascist, nationalist currents creeping across our world.”

“Our new, political songs aren’t polemics that hit you over the head with one-dimensional messages. They are thoughtful explorations of contradictions in contemporary life that hope to arouse complex questions and emotions, not give easy answers.”

The Mommyheads will be touring Scandinavia and the eastern part of US this autumn so stay tuned through mommyheads.com.

Drowning In Shit by Spichard Rencer

This album has four tracks totaling a length of 2:14 minutes. This is extremely powerful grindcore. More importantly it drips empathy and anger towards the state of the world today. Check this band out if you’re into this sort of thing. If you can’t handle the music, read the lyrics and count your blessings that there are creative people out there standing up for the rest of us.

Avoc – Hassis, Flows and Schlappen by Absoluth

This album is a year old but we just had to include it when we heard the old school style, bangin’ hip hop beats with political German spoken lyrics. This band is pure joy. Blast this for your end of summer fiesta and never look back.

Pull The Plug EP by Jow Goddard (ft. Kool Keith)

“AF Trax’s message is very simple. The far right ultimately wish for the destruction of our way of life and indeed the lives of many of the people we love. The message is love. The message is solidarity. The message is No Pasaran – They shall not pass. It is a call to stand together, it is a call to stand up, it is a call to ACT. Individually we may be powerless, but together we are strong.

If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention!

All label profits will be donated to Hope Not Hate (www.hopenothate.org.uk) which campaigns to counter racism and fascism. ” – from the album’s Bandcamp page

5 Fresh Feminist Albums For The Summer

So far, 2019 has delivered some great protest albums. In order to filter through the music a bit here’s a short list of some brilliant feminist, riot grrrl, powerful albums that dropped just in time for some summer fun and protest!


Post Modern Siren by Peach Club

“Never thought of my feelings
Only ever of your own
You know it’s not quite appealing
Living in your own little world

Pain was all you had to offer
Your sad little life I had to suffer
You made me yours and I don’t want that
I just want my fucking life back

So don’t tell me what to do
‘Cause I don’t belong to you
And you don’t have my trust
And you don’t have my love

I’m not your girl
I’m not your world
I’m not your anything
I am a person
I’ve got more worth than you
Ever show

I just want to forget every fucking word you said”

– from Not Ur Girl


she/her/they/them by Evan Greer

For her first album in a decade Evan Greer teams up with veteran protest musician as producer and comes out guns a blazing although in a very, soft, acoustic caring kind of way. A beautiful album you shouldn’t miss.


How Am I Not Myself? by French Vanilla

A fantastic sophomore album from the funky band. They are on their way to create their own sound which is as welcomed as it is hard. Keep your eyes on this band.


Cut & Stitch by Petrol Girls

“The majority of the lyrics were written in the studio. I was having a difficult time, unsure about where to live after we finished the record, and burnt out from a tough year of personal and legal challenges. Something that I’ve reluctantly allowed feminism to teach me is that we have to tend to our own wounds, and that sometimes being vulnerable is just as radical as being angry – it certainly scares me a lot more. Rage on its own isn’t sustainable. We hope this is a more honest and human record.  “

– from the introduction ben Ren Aldridge on the band’s Bandcamp page.


Swearing Is Caring by Misbehavin’ Maidens

“Nerd folk comedy band comprised of four women from the Washington, DC / Baltimore area with a love of sex-positive music, parodies, drinking & fandom references for 18+ geeks. 3rd album, “Swearing is Caring,” now available!”

– from the band’s Bandcamp page.
