You don’t have to be a music critic to hear a little John and Exene in this south-side three-piece’s male-female vocal interplay, but Daylight Robbery doesn’t stop with X… They combine the short sharp bursts of late-70s west-coast bands like the Bags and the Wipers with the present-day energy of sweat-soaked Pilsen house shows.

Red Dons Auslander 7″ mixed and mastered here, Razorcake Review.

 

“RED DONS:
Ausländer: 7”
I’m of the opinion that Red Dons are the best band walking the planet today. I fuggin’ love this band! They have this way of making music that causes everything else around you to melt away and all that is left is the music. You are completely in that moment. It’s a great feeling. The songs soar, race, and have undeniable soul. Catchy without being corny. Insightful without being overwrought. Just fucking great music. The title track is godhead! I’ve listened to it over and over so many times, and have yet to tire of it. Is that even possible? It’s such a great song. A nice, quick tempo and the vocals float over, pulling you into the song, and the chorus burns into your mind. I like how the guitar comes in at the end and builds and closes out with a noisy swirl. The kind of song that makes you want to start a band and take over the world. On the B side is “Mauvaise Foi,” which slows down a little bit with a jerky and bouncy rhythm here and there. When the melody comes in, nothing else matters. I really like the line, “Anointed one, where did I go wrong,” as it leads into the verse. This single is a classic. –Matt Average (Dirtnap, dirtnaprecs.com)”

Daylight Robbery first review from RAZORCAKE:

“In 2010, David and Christine Wolf had to replace the equipment that was stolen when their Chicago house was broken into. They wound up building a home studio, where their band Daylight Robbery recorded their gritty second album, Ecstatic Vision, on a Tascam 38 tape recorder. The album’s lyrics come from people balancing adult responsibilities with playing in a DIY band; rebuilding while sorting out memories and trying not to dwell in the past; asking questions like, “What’s the point?” and “Where do we go from here?” While the lyrics are taking stock, the music pushes forward, vibrant, faster, urgent, with David and Christine both sounding more confident and engaged on the mic. Like their first album, Through the Confusion, Ecstatic Vision has ten songs, but it’s five minutes shorter, wrappin g up after twenty-eight minutes with the choppy, jolting “Grassroots,” one of the few new songs that hasn’t jettisoned the band’s new wave influence for spacious, propulsive Australian garage like Radio Birdman or Eddy Current Suppression Ring. It’s not that Daylight Robbery sound like a different band, it’s that they’ve avoided the “same thing, not as exciting” sophomore trap by putting out a record that is rawer and punker, the live-to-tape closeness (and muffled drums) making it easy to mistake for the lost demos of some awesome L.A. by way of Australia band, circa 1979. A retooled dynamic compensates for the downgrade in fidelity. In this claustrophobic recording, the guitar parts have a stronger delineation between riffs and leads, and the band creates the signature space between David’s dark, desert/surf leads and the counting-trees-flying-by-on-the-highway momentum of Christine’s bass and Jeff’s drums by minimizing overdubs. If Confusion was the sound of running down the midd le of a dark street, trying to gauge the closeness of your pursuer’s footsteps over the pounding of your heart, Vision is peeking out of a gangway, panting, knife pulled, hoping that the person chasing you runs past. Keep fighting, Daylight Robbery. –CT Terry”

“MONDO RAY:
Hypnotized: 7” single
The Alex Fine cover art worked really well in getting me to pick up this record. Reminds me of Mike Allred (Madman, iZombie comics) in a lot of ways. Not only is the cover art really good, but so is the music: poppy garage punk that moves at a really nice pace. Both songs on here are pretty solid. Can’t decide which I like more, as they both have a way of staying with you long after the record is over. “Nothing” is the more poppy of the two and moves at a somewhat more mid-paced tempo. The repetitive riff is simple and catchier than hell. “Hypnotized” is a little heavier and more driven. I like the organ that is slightly buried in the chorus. The delivery is great and the line, “When I saw you I was hypnotized” sums it up. –Matt Average (Windian, windianrecords.com)”

“MOTHER’S CHILDREN European Tour May 2012!

Howdy,

I’m stoked to announce that MOTHER’S CHILDREN from the city of Ottawa plan on touring Europe finally in May 2012! If you wanna have them play your town, get in touch through info@takenbysurprise.net – a tentative schedule will follow soon. We released their ARE YOU TOUGH ENOUGH 12″ EP this year and they have a full length LP out on DERANGED RECORDS. Check out a song from the EP and a video from their LP below!”

“RED DONS:
: 7″

There is a small hand of punk bands that are unmistakably down that, I’m sure, would have a very wide appeal among people who “used to like punk” or “outgrew punk,” as well as, “Oooh, what’s this punk stuff about?” people. I’m not talking about the Rancid/Green Day axis of mainstream appeal. I’m talking the potential Fugazi levels of sustainability—large level, international underground level. Because the Red Dons are instantly catchy, smart-as-all-hell, musically interesting, and so big and realized in sound, that I’m hard-pressed to think of a band with a largesse of morals that equals the excitement of the music they’re currently making. For those who like: punk and/or punk and celebrating under that huge fuckin’ umbrella. Untouchable and worth hunting down? Absolutely.

“MOTHER’S CHILDREN:
Are You Tough Enough?: 12” EP

A six-song follow-up to their debut record, Ottawa’s finest return with a great release. They actually remind me of the Minneapolis’s Crash Kids a bit (which is a good thing, trust me). I like “Sabre Tooth” and “What’s Your Problem” the best here. There is a reason Paul Collins brought these guys on tour with them. They simply rock, in the best tradition of 20/20 or The Plimsouls. Pick this up and you will be bopping along when you pick up your burger and strawberry milkshake at your local fast food joint. Yum.
