HOOVES NOT HANDS: Swollen: CD

May 21, 2010

Heavy AmRep influence here, meaning you get loud noise rock with odd tempo shifts and such from a band that seems insistent on wedging themselves into that nook between the Cows and Unsane. Was initially put off a little by the derivativeness of the whole endeavor, but by track seven, “Septic Breath,” they’d won me over with all the smash-bang chaotic noise mongering. The cute teddy bear on the cover definitely sealed the deal.  –jimmy (Amplified Noise, no address)
