A.H. KRAKEN: Self-titled: LP

Weird and sharp, this is great. Like the more doom parts of Black Flag, in the horror vein of current bands like TV Ghost—real moody but still plucky and noisy shit. Songs are all around two and a half minutes, but you feel like you’ve been pummeled for an hour. Not hyperspeed, just—pounding. Putting math to the garage is always fun.
