Regal Degal – “Ruining My Life”

We named Brooklyn’s Regal Degal a Band To Watch way back in 2010, before they released their debut cassette, Format Worth, and were still playing shows at the now-defunct DIY showspace Death By Audio (RIP). Since then, the band has released a full-length LP titled Pyramid Bricks, which they will follow up this year with… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: July 2013

I don’t want to bum anybody out, but summer’s almost over. With an emphasis on almost, meaning anything can still happen (aside from reclaiming that unbridled feeling of summer’s start and infinite possibilities; we’re definitely in the zone of finitude, with all its attendant reminders of our own corporeal mortality, now)! LIVE IT UP! Really. More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

When we take songs into consideration for this column, we’re open to including tracks we wouldn’t necessarily cover on the site. For this week’s collection, we teetered on the precipice of adding new AFI single “I Hope You Suffer” to the list, but in the end, it didn’t make it. Justin Vernon’s project Volcano Choir… More »

Regal Degal – “Unseen”

Regal Degal, BTW Class Of ’10, will release an EP called Pyramid Bricks at the end of the month and it features this cut “Unseen.” If it’s possible for monochromatic post-punk to blossom, then this is the track.

Stereogum Monthly Mix: August 2012

Summer is ending! And you have some work to do. Did you experience that season-defining moment? That rooftop conversation, that carefree weekend of intense interpersonal bonding? Did you find the person who’ll keep you warm all winter? If you’ve answered negatively to even one of these, you have some work to do. And so we… More »

Regal Degal – “Not Mired” (Stereogum Premiere)

Class of 2010 BTW Regal Degal made a mark with their cassette Format Worth — released, homophonically, by RVNG’s Matt Wirth — which featured the outstanding, lockstep and arty post-punk of “Pretty Busy.” After this they promptly moved out west to LA, a literal left turn that landed them in the lap of No Age’… More »

Band To Watch: Regal Degal

Brooklyn post-punk trio Regal Degal perform in a kind of wind-tunneling locked-groove, one that gathers steam as it circles into itself. They’re fronted by onetime Dinowalrus drummer Josh da Costa, which maybe has something to do with the percussiveness of each instrument. (And their updated take on an older, dirtier NYC sound is more seriou… More »
