Pull No Punches

As you may or may not know, Brooklyn is pretty much the US capital of music right now. So much music is coming out of this area of NY that's it's pretty much impossible to keep up with. The funny thing about Brooklyn though, is much like the area itself, the stuff coming out of there is incredibly diverse. You have all sorts indie, all sorts of dance, world music inflected's just all over the place and that's truly a great thing that should help the area remain fertile for at least a while.

Among the heaps of talent crawling around the area is PUNCHES. PUNCHES was formed on a late and snowy night in December 2009 when DJ twins Finger On The Pulse shared a cab with Alan Astor and The Kid Robb. During that cab right the four of them talked about what would make the perfect soundtrack for the upcoming summer and it was at that point that PUNCHES was born.

Having been around for under a year, their rise has been quick. They've already remixed Au Revoir Simone's, "Only You," written a few of their own tunes, and of course put together a mixtape which features all of that and a whole lot more.
With spring here, it seems to make sense to start thinking of the summer and thanks to the PUNCHES mixtape below you can start planning your holiday now because you already have the soundtrack.
