BECOME: Self-titled: Cassette

Big things can sometimes come in small packages, which is the case with this cassette. What you get are five tracks of brooding post-hardcore from Santa Barbara, CA. I am prone to comparisons and my ears hear some late-’80s DC a la Rites Of Spring meets late ‘90s Hot Water Music. Not a bad combination of influences, if you ask me. Cassette also comes with a download code.
