Speaking of well-seasoned punks -- remember that nifty little Christmas release by Hard Left? They've got a full record coming out, releasing one song via Bandcamp per week, and the first track's just come out. The band is very much of a formula, extremely self-aware, and have jumped 100% into the aesthetic and message of yesteryear's political punk rock. Good things never die, and Hard Left want you to know that punk rock is a good thing.

They've also got some shows scheduled to celebrate:

April 30 - Hemlock Tavern, SF w/Bad Daddies, Voided Social Contract & Schleim
May 1 - La Cita, Los Angeles - Punky Reggae Party w/Terry Malts
May 2 - The Night Light, Oakland w/ Suede Razors

And -- decidedly not aggressive much -- English folk band This is the Kit have just offered up the second song, first official single, of their upcoming Bashed Out.
