ANTITHOUGHT: The Letdown: LP

This is the debut LP from Antithought from St. Louis and it’s a ripper. Reminiscent of the best streetpunk bands of the 1990s like The Pist or August Spies, Antithought fly through non-melodic yet catchy anthems like there’s no stop signs in sight. There used to be a lot of records like this one, but punk this pure is hard to come by these days. The vinyl is clear with black spatter and there’s a cool printed sleeve with lyrics. I haven’t had this level of instant connection with a new band in ages. Do yourself a favor and check out Antithought, unless you’re anti-taste. –Art Ettinger (Collision Course)
