Smoking Popes stream "Punk Band" off new album and Gateway District are streaming two!

I saw them debut "Punk Band" live at the Metro in October as part of Riot Fest 2010 with The Dopamines and Cap'n Jazz. Love it. It's also going to be the first studio recording Neil Hennessey (Lawrence Arms) plays drums on with them, despite playing with them live for the last 4 or 5 years. Happy day! Gonna go listen to the new Lemuria album now.

BUT before that happens, Minneapolis' infectious electric alt-country/punk/rock/riot grrrl band, The Gateway District is streaming two songs of its new album titled, "Perfect's Gonna Fail." If these two are any indication that the rest are going to sound this good, then this is going to quite possibly be one of the top albums of 2011. Get stoked.
