Critica Radicala: Romanian punk rock that makes up for its lack of intensity with unique vocals. Homeboy doesn’t scream so much as try to sing in rich baritone what’s on his mind. Interesting introduction for these ears to how some punks in Romania approach punk. Czolgosz: Holy shit, what happened with these guys? Last I heard from them was their full-length on Rodent Popsicle, which was good, but these six songs are something else entirely. Each song approaches the hardcore equation from a different angle and some very pointed lyrics take to task Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko, America’s complacent Left, police and Boston’s hardcore scene, among other topics. Damn fine punk rock from these guys can be found here.
