HUMAN TOUCH: Self-titled: 7”

Rambunctious female-fronted hardcore. This disc chugs like a malfunctioning microwave. There are moments every once in a while that make you worry. The moments where you think, “Maybe it’s not going to make it.” Those whirring noises of d-beat hardcore and borderline-shrill vibrating vocal dissonance, but the job gets done. When this wax works, it’s solid. In practice, I hear the same things that make bands like Night Birds and Autistic Youth awesome.
