Songs of War and Crisis (self-released)
A real honest to God punk album? It’s about time. Turks are loud and pissed off and quite openly political. The vocals are raw and screamy, there’s not much in the way of production (as it should be for a punk band), and there are some pleasantly ominous guitar riffs. There’s even a hint of Soundgarden in there on Psychogenic Fugue. Love it.
At Uptown (1928 Telegraph Ave.,Oakland) on June 17. 9 p.m., $8.
