Los Angeles art-punks Hit Bargain, which feature members of These Are Powers, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Cold Beat, North Highlands, and Beach Fossils, released their debut album, Potential Maximizer, today. Fierce, sneery and rocking, Hit Bargain take aim at "the ennui of late stage Capitalism" and other pressing issues and you can stream the whole thing below. They've also just released a video for "Capitulate" where a man discovers he is running from himself. You can watch that below, too.
