A few words about this album. When I look for our “Album Of The Week” what I’m looking for is something that I want to buy and play often , it has to be able to speak to me, some kind of connection has to be made and since I’ve liked The Coathangers for awhile this was on my radar. That being said, Jess made the title track “Nosebleed Weekend” our video of the day today which proves that us music junkies , like what we like. I have a handful of Bands that I think need paid attention to and one of those bands is The Coathangers. It’s cool , reminds me a little of the late 70’s and CBGB’s . I could close my eyes and see The Coathangers tearing it up kicking bottles of beer off of tables,in a bar where people get suckered punch for something they shouldn’t have been doing, you know that place. In a crowded with mediocrity industry that is begging for some soul and authenticity , The Coathangers demand the attention of all who seek those speaking the truth of true rock ‘n’ roll.

I think the last 3 weeks have been exceptional strong representations of what I dig about today’s music. From Bleached to Parquet Courts and now The Coathangers , 3 albums that will be on my best of 2016 lists. So my friends, like I tell the kids at work “I can lead you to the water but I can’t make you drink it” go get nuts and crank the shit out of this……
