CREDENTIALS, THE: Consolation Prizes: 7″

The best music comes in the form of a bitch slap. You check out a band expecting nothing—maybe a decent track or two—and you come back discovering that this was the best new band you’ve heard in the last few months. Yes, The Credentials, I am talking about you. With sounds in the vein of Cleveland Bound Death Sentence and Rivethead, you can expect a rollicking good time. It’s not perfect, but with just a bit more under their belt, these guys have potential of being a top tier band.
