PANDEMIX- "Love Is Obliteration" LP
BOTHERS- "II" LP
BLACK ADIDAS- S/T LP
Courtney Ranshaw, the man behind Black Adidas, is a rocket scientist by day, and a fierce punk-rocker the rest of the time. His second self-titled album, released on noted punk indie Dirt Cult Records, features more of the crunching, vintage punk rock – influenced as much by listening to the Clash as the Cure on KROQ as a kid in the Valley – fans have come to expect. Produced by Dave Newton at Rollercoaster Recording in Ranshaw’s hometown of Burbank, Black Adidas, unlike its first iteration, features a full band -- Daniel Alexander on keyboards and Carl Raether on bass, with Kari G. Child playing drums on three tracks and Rob Wolk handling the rest. Dirt Cult Records.
