It’s really disappointing to learn of a great new band then immediately find out they’re disbanding, which — for me — is the case with Boston-based Birthing Hips (shout out to Post-Trash for the tip). The four-piece’s second, and evidently final, LP Urge To Merge is coming out November 17 via NNA Tapes.

Lead single “Droplet” is a manic delight with some monstrous rock riffs. Check it out below.
