It’s been over a year since I’ve done any form of post which makes me a very bad boy. The reality of the situation is that my big boy job suddenly got very big throughout 2019 and I subsequently used music to stay sane, as opposed to using it as an excuse to engage in blog based chit-chat.
2019 was also a year where I rediscovered my love of punk with a number of friends who go to more shows than I do, because they’re cooler and have their work life balance under better control. As a result, my Spotify playlists have more power chords throughout them, and the latest single from New Jersey punk outfit Mercy Union kept me sane over a long layover in one of the Carolinas this Christmas period.
I can’t think of anything witty to say, but if you enjoyed The Menzingers latest album, the new two track EP (appropriated titles II) from Mercy Union may be up your street. Released December 20th, this will be on heavy repeat throughout 2020.
