LIBYANS "A COMMON PLACE" LP
Debut LP from this Boston punk band who seemed to catch everyone's ear with a slew of great singles and EPs over the past few years. Libyans have always segued seamlessly between blistering, catchy hardcore and huge, anthemic punk in the mold of the Avengers, but A Common Place takes both of those approaches to new levels of intensity and artistry. If you're not circle pitting to "Blood and Rust," or if you don't have your fist in the air during the chorus to "Paralyzed," I may have to question whether you have any soul left in you.
