Work Ethic Records

Blackhole - Deeper

Genre: Hardcore
Year: 2014

1. Intro/Deeper
2. Not Cool Enough
3. Keep Spitting
4. Art Extortion
5. Lost Sight, Start A Fight

Blackhole are a band from around Springfield MO, and these guys have been posted here a few times, like last year we posted their release before this Ledges, be sure to check that out as well. This time around they've made their sound even more heavy, fast, and angry. Another highlight of this is the lyrics, sending out messages like in Art Extortion, where its about people who are just making music for money and how they are fake. Overall this release is sounding great, I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Lion House - Drancy

Genre: Emo/Screamo/Post-Hardcore
Year: 2014

1. Support The Army; Not The Assholes
2. Come Back With All Of Your Faculties
3. Dooty Pooty
4. "I'm All Out Of HP"
5. Please Return My Daniel Johnston Record
6. AGAPE? Fuck That, PHILOS.

Lionhouse are a band from Kansas City, MO. Playing a twinkly sounding style of emo combined with the brash melodies and speed of screamo, Lionhouse pulls off a very admirable and solid release. This album is chock full of sad lyrics and pretty riffs. It reminds me of older bands like Mineral and The Casket Lottery, but combines it with sounds of newer emo bands like The Reptilian or even PBTT. Impressive release, definitely check this one out as well.
