ACRYLICS: Sinking In: LP

I love Iron Lung. I love how they push their sound and label. This release is another local one to me from up the freeway. Super tense hardcore which for some reason makes me think of a mix between the aggressive “emo” Bay Area bands from Manumission through to the Shivering or later “mysterious guy” hardcore like Veins where they would make it really hard to find and make obtuse books of photos. It’s cool, hard, fast, hectic, and ticks the boxes but just don’t make the hairs stick up on the old back of the neck. –Tim Brooks
