Daily Ritual

Mastering Daily Ritual – Depressed State on 4490 Records & Contergan Punk.

“Hafiz, the man of the golden touch. While Pazahora will probably always be my favorite Singaporean band, everything Hafiz touches is gold, and this is no exception. Daily Ritual is the newest Hafiz band and seems to be taking southeast Asia by storm, seeing as this debut EP sold out instantly just in their region of the world, and relatively few copies made it out west.

Daily Ritual play a standard style of catchy, melodic punk rock, in line with such bands as The Observers, Red Dons, Autistic Youth, the Estranged, etc. The melodies are memorable, the songs are catchy, the record is fucking good all around.

If you are someone that actually cares about punk on a worldwide scale, this is a good record to scope to hear something that’s currently exciting and relevant in southeast Asia. This is one of the better (and more popular) releases to come out of southeast Asia, pick it up and discover what the punks are dancing to on the other side of the world.”

Check out my article from the February’s One Way Ticket Zine.

As you may have heard North London Bomb Factory has a column each issue featuring bands that I have been working on.

The new issue (#8) is at the press now and out soon. Make sure you grab a copy, especially if you’ve had your record mixed or mastered here.

Mastering the Estranged‘s 3rd LP.

Coming out on Sabotage and Dirtnap, the new record will be supported by an European tour in February.

“An epic, sprawling masterpiece, this is by far their best record yet, which is really saying something at this point.”

As you may know, Red Dons have done many tours together with the Estranged and I personally am a huge fan. Check out the new album and seize the opportunity to see them live.

New Red Dons and Estranged split Interview in Maximum Rock n Roll!

It’s the end of the world and we feel fine!

The new (and potentially last???) issue of your favorite punk rock magazine has hit the streets! The December issue,MRR #355, comes busting at the seams with the best punk from around the world — 100% by the punks for the punks!

This month we talk to our Doomsday cover artist Avi Spivakand we have a split interview with Portland-based punks, the RED DONS and the ESTRANGED. We catch up with Sweden’s crust megaliths AGRIMONIA, and Russia’s hardcore punxANTIMELODIX tell us their story and and explain love of Finland.NAPOLNARIZ talk about what it’s like growing up punk in Puerto Rico and LA ARMADA examine their experience of coming to the US from the Dominican Republic. Peru’s anarchia punks DHK tell us about their scene in Lima, while BREATHING LIGHT from Chicago discuss race, culture and what it’s like to be a punk of color within the punk scene and beyond. The VICTIMS take us on a trip in the second part of their European tour diary, and our scene report from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada sheds some light onto this active part of the Great White North. This, plus all the columnists you love to hate (and hate to love!) and the most extensive record reviews in punk!”

“[POST-PUNK POP] Red Dons’ moddish post-punk has never lacked for melody, but the Dons’ new Dirtnap Records 7-inch might be the Portland quartet’s most comely pop product yet. A-side “Auslander” comes within spitting distance of the five-minute mark without ever threatening to overstay its welcome, which is a rare feat. The anthem flies by in classic Adverts fashion, with punk fury mellowed by a helping of melancholic world-weariness; it’s one of those expansive love songs in which romance escapes the trite ties of pair-bonding and attaches itself to existential equations. Which is to say you don’t need to be in love to love “Auslander.” You need only be alive. – Willamette Week
