Release date set for Death Set

Counter Records, an imprint of Ninja Tune, will release the album Worldwide by local electro-punk duo The Death Set on April 22.

Right now, the band is on a brutal tour that won't bring it back for a show in Baltimore until March 27 at the Lo-Fi Social Club.

I like the album cover (pictured), but the font used for the track listing on the back of the jewel case is really hard to read.

Worldwide has 18 tracks and is still only 25 minutes long.

As a member of the ADD generation, I appreciate that.

more importantly, what'd you think of the album? i thought it was pretty decent, not as their previous release.

our take:

dude. Elizabeth large already covered this!!!
We talked about it when I bumped into her at the Head on Sat.

The Lo Fi show (if it happens) is gonna be killer with Matt & Kim as well.

Sam, I know that this probably isn't the place for this, but since it's your most recent music post, it's going here anyway.

I hope that you figure out how to make it to the 9:30 Club on Thursday night for The Gutter Twins (Greg Dulli-Afghan Whigs and Twilight Singers & Mark Lanegan - Screaming Trees & QOTSA).

Dulli always puts on an unbelievable show and the Gutter Twins album is the first great album of 2008.

Just passing along some info for your and faithful readers of this blog.
