Hardcore that plants itself between the Minor Threat-era of Dischord and the ’90s punk boom of Epitaph. It would be dismissive to describe their tape as “no frills,” but the band definitely doesn’t aim for style. The tape feels ultimately like a band stretching its legs, getting the early ideas out. A solid first effort; the band plays well together as a trio and they definitely have a sound that works between them as musicians. If this band sticks together, I could really see them making a good record with this lineup. –Gwen Static (Self-released,
