NOTCHES "Normal" CS Out Now!

The excellent NOTCHES "Normal" EP is finally out and available on cassette from Hip Kid Records.  100 copies on red imprinted, pro-dubbed cassettes.  

This New Hampshire band features members of Billy Raygun and Betty Nico playing an absolutely perfect combination of mid-90's alt-rock, pop punk from every era, and still manages to keep it totally unique with an aesthetic and recording firmly rooted in DIY punk.  Six bangers that will get, and remain, stuck in your head.

Get it here:
