CHEAP ART: Cheap Art E.P.: Cassette

I love the resurgence of cassette releases, especially from new bands. Cheap Art is a powerviolence outfit from Atlanta that put out this incredible ten-song tape after a mere four months of existence. Listening to great newbies on cassette isn’t a novel concept to anyone who got into punk in the ‘80s or ‘90s, but the NYHC demos I picked up at shows as a kid almost always paled in comparison to tapes like this. Also available as a digital download, someday this will get pressed onto vinyl for the hoards of fans Cheap Art is soon to gain. This is ultra-inspired, leap-out-of-your-seat hardcore at its best. This reviewer named Art is dead serious about how fucking great Cheap Art is.
