Disgustingly-named Chicago trio Meat Wave welcomed their blistering, self-titled cassette tape in October of 2012 via Let's Pretend Records. If melodic punk is your thing, these guys do it damn well. The nine-track effort is jam-packed with nervy riffs, snotty vocals, and most importantly: no frills. You can stream Meat Wave in its entirety at the bottom of this post. Order a physical copy via Let's Pretend's webstore.

Catch Meat Wave live (boy does that sound gross...) at Quenchers on May 18 with fellow Chicago outfit Geronimo!, Hospital Garden, and Destroy This Place. Advance tickets are on sale now.
