A few weeks ago, local label Glory Kid Records released their newest record, Glory Kid #010 - a split 12inch release between So. Cal. locals Restrained and Nor. Cal. faves The Separation.

The record hits on all levels possible.

Sonically it attacks you.

Lyrically it engages you.

Emotionally it moves you.

Coming forward in an all out Hardcore Punk explosion you get two up and coming California bands who play on the heavier side of the punk sound and they deliver a lot of ideas to give you pause and reason to think.

This isn't a review of the record, this is an introduction. And all introductions need a good sample, so do yourself a huge favor, download and give the two tracks a good listen. Check out the bands' respective myspace pages for more songs & buy the record already.

Not that it should be THE selling point, but the packaging is great too, with silk screened covers (custom artwork from Andrew Gomez IV), and it comes with a booklet & digital download of the record.
