FAMILY CURSE / WHITE MURDER: Split 7”

Hmmmm…. Family Curse crank out some wound up tighter than tight punk rock with a style that reminds me of the Tyrades, Night Birds, and more recent bands. I like it quite a bit. The energy is infectious, and I like I get pulled into it. The only thing I don’t really like is the chorus of “Middle Age America.” The attitude of the delivery sounds forced. Other than that, pretty good. Maybe it’s something that has to grow on me, like a mold. White Murder are a little less stabby in sound, but they have a smash and burn style with a urgent delivery. Even in their tempo changes, the song flows and keeps the tension constant. Kind of like an updated version of the Bags. So fucking good! Only one song? I need to hear more.
