Bashford are set to release their fifth album this month but are just now landing on our radar. They play a very specific brand of punk that's going to make people who remember the early 90's grunge explosion very happy. "Bitter Masses" has that unhinged and bordering on going completely out of control sound. This is going to draw some comparisons to Nirvana, but it somehow sounds like Nirvana at their most abrasive and mainstream at the exact same time. This is the kind of music we're too old enough to listen to aside from nostalgically, but how can we possibly not be sucked in by Bashford?
You can watch the video for "Bitter Masses" below. Greener Grasses is due out December 10 on Big Neck Records. You can pre-order the album via Bandcamp. For more on Bashford, check out the band's Facebook.
