This is it! The record’s out and now you can bring this soon to be punk classic home for you and your friends to enjoy! Blessed State’s “Head Space” is a brilliant collection of 8 punk jams that harken back to the early 80s days of punk/hardcore. Western MA’s Justin Pizzoferrato (Sonic Youth, Dinasaur JR, Speedy Ortiz) did the recording honors and what he captured is pretty awesome. Hear it for yourself and then grab a copy before we sell out.
250 copies pressed, 45 RPM for best possible sound, insert & digital downloads included!
“The record pulls from decades of punk and post-hardcore, sounding at times like Braid, Husker Du, Paint It Black and still more. These guys definitely sound like they’ve got a serious record collection” (Brooklynvegan)
“Blessed State play a killer style of punk music that mixes equal parts 80’s Revolution Summer style hardcore/punk and post punk.” (Manic Compression)
“‘Head Space’ sees the collective of “harder-edged” punx from the likes of Iron Hand, Fugitive, and Ratzinger moving away from ‘core basics and rotating their guitar slam dance into whirlwind of lush aggression akin to ’80s noise-pop predecessors Hüsker Dü and Jade Tree-era melodic thrashers Swiz, or Fucked Up” (recommendedlisten)
“Head Space is a wall of melody tossed down a spiral staircase covered in broken glass; equally anthemic and sadistic.” (Ventsmagazine)
