Bill Morgal The energy is infectious. Quite great. Favorite track: New Buildings.

Sam Wrangle So you're searching for new post-punk releases on the interwebs. You find a blog that recommends an album called 'Utopia'. It looks interesting, I mean - the cover is an optical illusion!
The drums on this track are Factory Records through and through. As if The Names decided to channel more anger into their music. The bass throbs and the guitar(s) glisten. The most comfortably, isolating sound for any upcoming iconoclast, I recommend this album. It's catnip for miserablists. Favorite track: New Buildings.

    Vancouver's post-punk darlings SPECTRES released their most accomplished and third record in 2016. Like the rest of the band's catalogue, vinyl-only releases were the norm, and Utopia was no exception. Signing a five-album deal with Toronto-base Artoffact Records, SPECTRES will return in 2019 with their fourth album, and in the meantime the wonderful third record finally gets a CD release.

about

Hope is one of the strangest things
A double sided thing
It’s only there when life's gone wrong

Dreams are one of the cruelest things
Shallow, unobtainable things
Whatever keeps us hanging on…

Life is one of the strangest things
An ever passing thing
There’s nothing for us when it’s gone

Joy is one of the cruelest things
A hollow and unusual thing
Whatever keeps us hanging on and on...

But for how long?
