“San Francisco punk outfit Synthetic ID released their self-titled debut EP back in February on Cut The Cord That… Records, ripping through three tracks in six minutes flat with what is a beautiful cacophony of raw, frenetic guitars, fiercely pounded drums, and jerky yet oddly melodic vocals.

After cutting their original demo (via) last year, the band had it mastered by Daniel Husayn of Hajji Husayn Mastering in London (Husayn is also bassist for Portland-born punk act The Red Dons), and the result is stunning. Check out “Throwaway”, the record’s third track, a spasmodic reminder to stay humble:

Synthetic ID is playing four upcoming shows in the Bay Area, including gigs at Bottom of the Hill (supportingTerry Malts) and the Hemlock (opening for Uzi Rash and Austinites The Young), as well as an all-ages show at Oakland’s 1 2 3 4 Go! Records. Check out full details after the jump, and then grab a copy of their EP eitherdigitally or on 7″ vinyl.

“WARSONG, From Zaragoza (Spain). Barely six months after their latest european tour, they’re back on tour again featuring new record- THE CARAVAN EP. 5 songs on a Twelve inches released by Sabotage records, Erste Theke and Doomtown recs.

WARSONG – The Caravan EP (Kalle Stalle). Review-

Here we go, from the ashes of INSOMNIO and NO ESCAPE comes WARSONG with their second release after their impressive “Ancient times” debut-LP. Five songs: all killer no filler (four original songs plus a Wipers song that hasn’t been covered to death – especially not in Spain). On a good day, this record will make out an instant classic, on a bad day you’ll have to play it twice to discover the depth and richness of this record, but you definitely won’t sell it to anyone else again, because real good records stay forever. If you want to describe the sound of WARSONG, put together a band with a young Clif Hanger (The Freeze) fronting an all star band with the best ingredients from DAG NASTY, ALL, THE WIPERS and the mighty ADOLESCENTS. Your wettest dreams come true, if their subject is pure melodic hardcore-punk in classic 80s style. The more often you play this record the bigger it grows … and it’s damn huge right now.

If you trust a over 40 Year Old Punk Rock Nerd, buy this Record or let it be!!!! Again Mastered by genius Hajji Husayn from the awesome Red Dons.

You can listen and download both records here in their website:
