blank Freshkills”

Self-released in September 2008.
Produced by Alex Newport (At The Drive-In, The Locust, Two Gallants) and Freshkills.

Cover photography by Danielle Levitt

Spin: a “testament of melodic-not-pretty post-hardcore”

Vice: “..they remind me of the way I thought of New York before I lived here. It’s hard-hitting and infectious, but the frantic desperation is always palpable. ”

KEXP Radio:
“…fiercely rocking and loaded with catchy hooks.”

NY Daily News: an “..excellent self-titled release.”

Sentamentalist Magazine: a “gritty and powerful second release”, “a portrait of New York in the ‘old days,’ when music wasn’t afraid to be daring, dirty and slightly destructive”

Radio Exile: …”a pretty awesome soundtrack to these end times” … “There are only two places a post-hardcore, post-punk, post-civilization band like this could exist: New York City or Manchester”

Metromix: “After a couple of years of being inundated with flabby indie-pop and lazy laptop beats, New York’s best borough finally brings the noise”

blank Creeps and Lovers”

Released June 2006 on Arclight Records.
Cover art by Jessica Crosby.
Freshkills’ 2006 debut record.
Recorded at Williamsburg’s Studio G with Joel Hamilton (Frank Black, Unsane, Tom Waits).

Vice: Hours of practice, a dedication to songwriting, and a sizeable budget. These are all things that are less important to a good record than having a cool older borther – someone to break your Collective Soul tapes over your stupid head, as the older brothers of the Freshkills clearly did, and say “Hey you stupid idiot, here is Drive Like Jehu, Jesus Lizard, and Nation of Ulysses. Now quit being such a herb”.

New York Press: “Pull the window shades down tight and lose yourself in the Freshkills’ gothic post-punk drone.”-


Blunt Magazine (8/10)
: “A Drive Like Jehu for a generation that never experienced one, New York’s Freshkills dot their sound with traces of pop punk, noise, post-hardcore, goth and gutter rock. From New York, they have been compared to The Liars, but to me they sound like they’d listen to more Interpol and Birthday Party. With a decent ear for melody, good grooves, and an ingrained knowledge of rock, they offer the perfect amount of variety without losing focus. Some might accuse them of all-too-conveniently popping up with just the right sound at just the right time, but if more little eyeliner kids opened their minds to bands like Freshkills instead of whatever some magazine or webzine or online banner advertisement is promoting, the world just might be a better place.”
