Rejoice as today marks the release of Paradise (JT1103), the second slab of unbridled assault from Philadelphia’s outlaw sons PAINT IT BLACK. Hot on the heels of CVA, Paradise picks up where it’s predecessor left off: understandably angry, astutely anthemic, and painfully unabashed. Dan Yemin and crew take the formula for passionate hardcore and rewrite the rulebook from the ground up. The J Robbins produced end result features flashes of Sonic Youth, hints of My Bloody Valentine, and on one song drops a healthy dose of acoustic guitars to help turn the tired and cold blooded notion of legless mall punk inside out.

That’s not to say this is by any means an empty or heartless gesture, Paradise is as personal and politically inflamed as aggressive music comes, a challenging look at our current global crisis and a glare inward at the domestic minefield of divorce. Heartfelt, groundbreaking, and a must have for anyone who still believes in the transcendent powers of art, Paradise is as creative and refreshing as popular music can be.
