CORDE, LA: Back in Salem: 7”

Jul 13, 2010

Two great slices of moody, guitar-driven punk-wave stuff that deftly balances on the fine line between art and punch. There’s a definite dark quality to the tunes, but they thankfully refrain from slathering on layer after layer of “Ooooh, we’re spooky” and instead go for a sophisticated whop upside the noggin.
