Good luck telling Jeff Rosenstock to do anything the right way. The New York musician has always been content to follow his own path, from offering everything he’s ever recorded for pay-what-you-want download via his own Quote Unquote Records to telling the audience at Pitchfork Music Festival how much he was paid ($7500, if you’re curious) to surprise releasing his brand new album ‘POST-‘ on New Years Day.

Jeff’s also excited to announce his new label home – Polyvinyl Records – will make ‘POST-‘ available as a physical release on CD and vinyl on March 23rd.

Pre-order the physical release are available now [Here].

On ‘POST-Rosenstock channels the darkness from the days after the 2017 Presidential Inauguration into a new album that’s so big and bright it plays like the rallying cry we all need to usher in 2018 after the garbage year that was.

2017 kinda felt like the year when we snuck in the back door. We kept getting opportunities to do stuff – even though we take those opportunities to do stupid shit like say how much we made on stage.

The album was recorded in a one-week, 86-hour marathon recording session with Jack Shirley (Joyce Manor, Deafheaven) at the Atomic Garden in East Palo Alto, CA.

The four of us stood in a room without headphones on and just played the songs live to tape, and after that we had some friends (Dan Potthast, Laura Stevenson, Chris Farren, PUP) fill out some of the sound.

So, if the record feels even more unifying than usual, like a party that turns into a sleepover that turns into egg-n-cheese sandwiches on the beach that turns into a protest march that unites a gang of buddies for eternity, well, maybe that’s why.

Give it a listen below if you are yet to do so.
