To follow their debut album Courting Strong, UK punky indie pop band Martha are releasing their second LP Blisters In The Pit Of My Heart July 8 on Dirtnap in the US and Fortuna Pop in the UK.

NPR calls the band "a panoply of anormative behavior: queer, vegan, straight-edge, even anarchist." So it's no surprise that they attract misfits who feel as though they don't belong, and Martha has become a staple in the UK DIY punk scene. That same NPR article points out that the band members have regular day-jobs and are still devoted to creating art in their off-hours (the writer calls them "part-time punks"). Give this energetic, passionate album a listen.
