Favorite New Music: Night Birds

posted by MP Johnson

When horror and punk collide, you typically get some sort of Misfits rehash. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Misfits, but that doesn’t mean I want to hear five hundred bands worth of shoddy Misfits impersonations, half-assed devilocks and all.

That’s why the Night Birds are so refreshing. They combine the toughest elements of surf with the sounds of hardcore and straight-up punk rock, while covering all of the B-movie bases with songs declaring love for midnight movies and Frank Henenlotter films. I haven’t been this psyched about a new band for a long time. Today is your lucky day, because you can now listen to their entire discography CD on the player above, Fresh Kills, for free, courtesy of Grave Mistake records.
