“[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

 

Mastering the new Street Eaters12″ (s/t). It is a six-song, limited-edition 12″ vinyl EP that will be released on vinyl October 15, 2012 on Germany’s excellent Cut The Cord That…Records!

Street Eaters’ new, self-titled EP has been officially released as of September 25 and is available for free streaming+cheap download now on http://streeteaters.com/

You can get/preorder a copy in the U.S. either via international mailorder from CTCT Records (ctct-records.tumblr.com/releases).

“Street Eaters (Megan March and John No) live in Berkeley, California and are lifelong residents of the East Bay region. The band strives to wring the absolute maximum sound out of a minimalist setup: Megan plays the drums, John plays the bass, and they both sing. The music and lyrics are written entirely collaboratively by the two band members. There is no one else in the band, and there won’t be in the future.

Since their beginning in 2008, Street Eaters have released three 7-inches, a 12-inch EP, and a full-length album on the labels Plan-It X, Bakery Outlet, Starcleaner Dead Broke, and more. A new self-titled 12-inch EP will be released in October 2012 by the German label Cut The Cord That…Records (home of Neon Piss/Hard Skin/Synthetic ID/1981/more…), to coincide with Street Eaters’ first European tour.

Megan also plays guitar in Wild Assumptions, and used to drum for Younger Lovers and Neverending Party. John sings for Fleshies, used to sing for Triclops, and played bass in Harbinger.
