DEFORMITY: Self-titled: 7” EP

Very noisy hardcore from New York. The songs, from what I can make out, sound a bit more nuanced than the usual thrash-o-rama, but the lo-fi production values maximize the “noise” at the cost of clarity, which probably goes a long way with those who like their shit to sound like, well, shit, but doesn’t quite do ‘em justice here. Not lookin’ for Loggins & Messina, just something that doesn’t sound like it was recorded on a cheap handheld cassette player. Dig the purty silkscreened cover.
