Razorcake Podcast #602 with Kayla Greet | Specialist Subject Records Edition!

Specialist Subject is my first international, er at least non-American, label to spotlight! Run by Andrew and Kay in Bristol, England, they put out many different sounds from indie to punk and whatever they fancy in between. My personal favorite besides Caves (which I’ve played maybe too many times on RZC pods. Is that possible?) is Shit Present. They’ve got such an angry vulnerability to them that really snatches my attention. There’s a vast family of familiar names amongst their roster which stretches all over the UK and beyond. You’re certain to find something new that you absolutely fall in love with.
