★★★★★★★★★☆ 9 of 10i'd say 10 but i was really hoping for more unreleased tracks on this one.
The Hudson Falcons are not a punk band to be taken lightly and their upcoming release "Sleep, Drive, Rock 'n' Roll, Repeat" reminds us of that fact all too well.
The upcoming release, set to be released on I Hate People Records April 6th 2012 is a showcase of what Hudson Falcons have been doing for the past 12 years. Punk Fucking Rock! That's what. And if the re-releases aren't enough to assure you they've packed in a couple of new tracks to prove that these kids still know what's up.
The finger-slide work on the intro of the title track is a classic demonstration of the way this band can fuse any sound seamlessly into punk rock and still remain reminiscent of all of rock and roll's roots. This release reflects Hudson Falcons’ diversity as a punk band that isn't so much hell bent on defining what punk is but rather, a primer in where punk comes from.
I have listened to this promo 3 times now and it just gets better every time. Definitely worthy of getting set on repeat for the day.
Be sure and visit I Hate People Records when this is released, pick up a copy and revel in the sound of the working class.
the podunk punk.
