Brooklyn's Aye Nako write bright, saccharine melodic punk under the self-mandated genre tags of "homo-pop" and "queercore"; the band's website is decorated with a rainbow-striped border and legitimately nerdy ASCII art. Their debut full-length, Unleash Yourself, which they'll self-release next month, follows a fuzzy noise pop demo from 2010, but in the meantime you may have seen them at any number of feminist DIY festivals, opening P.S. Eliot's last show ever, or more recently at the New Museum-- a rare occurence for a guitar rock band erring towards pop-punk and doing the young, heartfelt thing honestly.
In the center of the demo was a scrappy, sweetsung, patient nugget called "Molasses", remade here for the LP. It stuck out like a sole dandelion in a field, something innocent you want to grab and share, but as the tight hooks unwind they reveal complex identity implications and a lot more depth. "Am I hot on the clues/ Or am I really that confused?" Mars, the singer, posits. "Can't even clutch the meaning/ If you could look from where I'm seeing."

******************
The Muslims are coming! This all-queer, Black & Brown punk band emerged onto the U.S. music scene in DURM, NC after the inauguration of Donald [fuckface] Trump.

Taking inspiration from classic punk and afropunk roots, they mix hardcore, rock-rap fusion, political satire and shared experiences as multi-racial Muslims into a powerful and spiritual deliverance. This band consists of lead singer/guitarist Laylatul Qadr, a Black Queer Muslim, Palestinian drummer FaraH BaHbaH, and Abu Shea on the bass. To check out this band and support their music, visit The Muslims on social media: @TheMuzlimz, Bandcamp & Youtube as duh...The Muslims!
