On Friday, the clangorous and excellent New York post-hardcore four-piece Big Ups will release their furious sophomore album Before A Million Universes out into the world. If you’ve heard the early tracks — “Capitalized,” “National Parks,” “Hope For Someone” — then you already know this album is going to be a motherfucker. If not, then you should feel glad you’re going in fresh. Either way, do yourself a favor and listen to the full album; it’s streaming at SPIN.
Before A Million Universes is out 3/4 on Exploding In Sound.
