FLIES AROUND IT: Self-titled: 7”

Driving-yet-wandering, emo-style hardcore with shouted vocals. The vocals on some songs are done in that spoken then screamed way that reminds me of Slint and all the bands they influenced. It’s pretty good, but not very memorable, nor does it call for repeat plays. If you’re a big fan of the post-hardcore kind of thing, you might like this.
