The New Yorker - Living Among Winners and Losers 12" [2012]

From lastfm:

(1) The New Yorker is an American magazine that publishes reportage, commentary, criticism, essays, cartoons, poetry and fiction. Originally a weekly, the magazine is now published 47 times per year with five (usually more expansive) issues covering two-week spans.

(2) The New Yorker is a melodic punk/post-hardcore band from Northwest Indiana. 

Now that you're all sad about Raw Nerve being gone, have yourself a listen to this slice of Chicago/NW Indiana melodic hardcore. Members of this band are also in Lord Snow and Expendable Youth, and one was in Raw Nerve. Furious bass playing, harmonic feedback tunes, and drums that sound like a roll of M-80s going off. The melodic chord changes bring to mind the late Witch Hunt, or perhaps Syracuse, NY's Shoppers. Fans of those, or emotional hardcore in the vein of Rites of Spring, will dig this record. The ten songs are all about a minute-ish long and the whole thing runs through so nice you'll listen to it twice.
