• “Blow It South” b/w “Down With You”

Canadian punk rockers White Lung have released the B side from their upcoming “Blow It South” seven-inch, and as expected, it’s really, really good. The band’s Sorry LP was one of my favorite releases of 2012, and the new material sees them going in the same melodic hardcore direction, with even sharper guitar leads and tighter dynamics. A friend of mine is constantly giving me shit because he says that White Lung sound “like they should be on Warped Tour,” and you know what? There are some moments of theirs where I can see exactly where he’s coming from, but I don’t even care—I love this band. They’re tight, catchy, and kinda tough. The newly released song “Down With You” is today’s 12 O’Clock Track.
