DEFECT DEFECT: Self-titled: 12” EP

Finally available on vinyl, this is one killer 12”. Defect Defect is one of the best bands in the U.S. playing mid-(to fast)-tempo, straight-forward hardcore punk. It definitely has its flourishes and intricacies, but its most valuable asset is its bass-heavy, to-the-point aggression. No clutter, no distractions, just rock solid songs. It’s been a long time since the Words EP came out, but this record has made it worth the wait.
