ANCHOR ARMS: Milligrams: 7”

Sep 04, 2008

Upon first listen, it’s absolutely no surprise that these lads call Gainesville home: gravelly voice, busy basslines, gang choruses, certainly no strangers to Fuel for the Hate Game. There’s something that separates Anchor Arms from the throngs of HWM copycats, though. These songs come off as totally natural, entirely sincere, as if maybe these cats were just so deeply immersed in hometown lore that they just live and breathe this sound. Passionate, memorable and genuine—I can’t ask for much more than that.
