F.I.T.S.: Feeding Illness to Society: 7”

Distinct and odd, the vocals on this French-Canadian hardcore 7” set it apart. An Australian label temporarily based in Toronto, Blow Blood Records quietly is putting out a solid roster of distinguished current bands. The tempo changes and semi-cartoonish voice aren’t jarring, but instead make F.I.T.S. improbably provocative. F.I.T.S. fit in the tradition of seemingly straightforward hardcore that is weird enough to demonstrate how varied our often-dismissed subgenres can get. –Art Ettinger (Blow Blood, blowbloodrecords.bandcamp.com)
