HAWKES: MVIII: CD-R

This CD-R sounds like it’s influenced by Rites Of Spring. Hawkes bring dirty vocals and post punk/Dischord-y guitar riffs to the plate on these four songs. In the tune “Fleeting Memories,” the Hawkes sing, “Things will come things and things will go.” Ending their song with that line, they intentionally turn their vocal hook into a fleeting memory because it becomes the last thing the listener hears in the song. These songs feel like they are coming from the right place. I hope to hear more from this DIY band from Montreal.
