Boston punk legends The Dogmatics are back with new music! While their previous single, "Automat Kalashnikov," sounded like it could have been from the band's early 80's archives, "Drop that Needle" sounds much more modern. Instead of punk fury, this new song has more of a garage rock meets power pop sound, with some surf guitars thrown in. Of course, this is a Boston band, so it can't be too surf. Instead of lyrics about surfing and bikinis, The Dogmatics sing about Dorchester and fellow Boston rockers Muck & The Mires. This is what Boston punk tends to sound like after four decades, but no one is possibly complaining when it's still this great.
You can listen to "Drop that Needle" below. The EP Drop that Needle is due out May 6 on Rum Bar Records, and can be pre-ordered through Bandcamp. For more on The Dogmatics, check out the band on Facebook.
