Self Defense Family (formerly End of a Year) is one of Albany’s best local bands. Recently a review of their newest 7″ said something akin to “a song that sounds more like it came out of an opium den than a punk band”. Self Defense Family is constantly taking their music in different directions and keeping fans guessing. They’re also pretty hilarious. Their youtube channel can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/user/EndofaYearSnuffFilms.
Their twitter is also one of the funniest things on the internet http://twitter.com/#!/EndofaYear
Listen to it, or don’t.
