Quick Hits: Bat House, Lady Low, Mike Hudson & The Pagans, The Dead Milkmen, NOFX

  • Boston-based four-piece psychedelic indie/math-rock band Bat House have recently released their debut EP, “ghosts.” Stream the EP from the band’s BandCamp page.
  • Lady Low have announced the November 20th release of their cover of The Vibrators’ “Baby Baby,” premiering exclusively on music blog Nothing But Hope and Passion.
  • Cleveland 70s punk legends Mike Hudson & The Pagans are streaming the band’s first new album in nearly 25 years tin its entirety via The Onion AV Club. Hollywood High is out November 4th via Ruin Discos.
  • SPIN has premiered the video for “Ronald Reagan Killed The Black Dahlia,” a song off of The Dead Milkmen‘s latest album, Pretty Music For Pretty People. Renowned for their satirical approach to punk rock, the Philadelphia quartet’s latest full-length is proof that, even after thirty plus years, dozens of lawsuits, and hundreds of hours of bird watching, they can still craft irreverent music that’s as relevant as ever.
  • In 2008, NOFX starred in the TV show Backstage Passport, a series that documented the insane hijinks of the band as they weaved an unsteady path through exotic locales where most sane bands fear to tread. The official Backstage Passport Soundtrack is being released on December 9th (Vinyl in January 2015). Packed with 15 tracks from both seasons, the Backstage Passport Soundtrack is a one-stop shop for all the rare, remixed, and unreleased material that folks could only previously enjoy as snippets during the show.
