DOUBLE NEGATIVE: Hardcore Confusion 3 & 4: 2 x 7” EP

May 08, 2013

SorryState rounds things out on this band’s multi-part series with the final two installments gatefolded in a two-for-one package. Things are maybe a little less experimental than on the previous two installments, but even at its most conventional, Double Negative’s brand of hardcore is still pretty friggin’ offbeat, and flat-out jaw-droppin’, compared to the rest of the pack—rhythm and tempo changes all over the place with odd bits of noise phasing in and out to add to the overall chaos. With this latest salvo they cement themselves as one of the more worthwhile bands making the rounds in the realm of hardcore, and this is another must-have release for a still-early 2013.
