The Lash Outs are being kind enough to let everyone download their two new tracks, “The Kids Don't Wanna Dance” and “Dream Catcher,” ontheir MySpace
. And, after listening, we're pretty damn excited to hear more of the new stuff. “The Kids Don't Wanna Dance” has a catchy riff and a standard walking bassline. The punk quartet is always fun, and plays solid, straightforward punk rock. We've already added the songs to our playlist, and suggest you do the same. They went live last night, and we're not sure how long they'll be downloadable. Both tracks will be on the band's forthcoming disc on Zodiac Killer Records. --Chelsea Ide
