Zomes' "Near Unison" LP Out June 23


On June 23, Baltimore/Stockholm duo Zomes will release a new album, Near Unison, via their own label (also called Near Unison). The LP will be distributed exclusively through Dischord Direct.

From the band: “These visceral and gently imaginative songs come from a year long musical sketch-sharing practice that led the band towards simple compositions inspired by the melodies and intimate storytelling of Swedish and American folk music.”

"Banned in DC" Back in Print June 23


After nearly 10 years out of production, Banned In DC is finally coming back into print.

Assembled by Cynthia Connolly, Leslie Clague, and Sharon Cheslow and originally released in December of 1988, Banned in DC collects hundreds of photos, flyers, and stories documenting the DC punk scene of the mid-’80s.

The intention of the book — one of the first to be published on punk in the US — was to capture the feeling and energy of the movement using stories from the people who were involved. It features images of a number of bands from that time, including Minor Threat, Faith, Marginal Man, Scream, Red C, Bad Brains, Rites of Spring, Nuclear Crayons, Insurrection, Hate from Ignorance, G.I., Void, and Second Wind.
