We’re stoked to announce the forthcoming release of Frater Set, a new EP by the Vancouver, BC band Night Court.
We first heard Night Court last year when we stumbled upon their excellent Greatest Hits cassette, released by the equally excellent Discos Peroquebien label of Valencia. Featuring 25 songs culled from two prior releases, just one song clocked in at longer than 2 minutes, each delivered at a blistering pace, loaded with hooks. It was one of our favorite releases of last year.
Their latest release, Humans! (released in the US by the Snappy Little Numbers label) is another favorite, and true to form, just three of the album’s 16 tracks last longer than 2 minutes, but each is laden with hooks and energy, another punk masterpiece for fans of Marked Men, Connections, Sonic Avenues, or dare we say, Cathedral Ceilings?
Frater Set is a five-song EP that will be released digitally as well as a limited-edition lathe-cut 7″ on Halloween. Today we’re releasing the EP’s first single, “Little Darkness,” a power punk masterpiece that lasts just 20 seconds from beginning to end but with more hooks per second than you can imagine.
