The Swingin' Utters and The Last Gang - out today!
The Swingin’ Utters album, Drowning In The Sea, Rising With The Sun, is out today! This 33-song best-of compilation touches on every era of the band’s career…from their 1995 debut, The Streets of San Francisco, all the way up to 2014’s, Fistful of Hollow. The Swingin’ Utters passion for what they do has always been palpable, and it’s why Drowning In The Sea, Rising With The Sun is as crucial now as when the music was first released. For fans, it’s a celebration of one of the Bay Area’s longest standing creative forces. And for the uninitiated, it offers a cohesive rundown on a band that’s impossible to sum up.
Also out today, The Last Gang 7”, Sing For Your Supper. The title track—which will also be on their new album—is the kind of palm-muted ripper that made Rancid famous; chock full with a bouncing bass line, a huge hook, and airtight songwriting that’ll get stuck in your head for years to come. The B-side, exclusive to this release, is no less throttling. Straight from the jump, the song whips up a frenzy, shifting directions on a dime, but never losing sight of The Last Gang’s pop-indebted ethos.
