BEASTMAN: Self-titled: Cassette

I love everything about Beastman. First of all, they took the time to design full-fledged cassette inserts, which is absurdly lacking in the new tape craze movement. Also, they play fast, sleazy Dwarves-inspired punk, but with smart, elevated lyrics. The song “Reasonable Suspicion” especially surprised me with its expertly crafted words, taking the standard theme of resistance to the criminal justice system to a new level. Hopefully they’ll move from cassette to vinyl soon, but ‘til then, this beast shall remain contained in its tape shell.
