This is a hell of a record. As soon as you drop the needle, in swarms the bass and drums with a thick coating of feedback and you know you’re in for a ride. Imagine if Bob Mould jumped straight from Land Speed Record to Sugar. As a band, Kicking Spit boils down to hardcore shredders playing aggressive yet melodic noise rock, and they kill it! The hearty, breathy melodies take cues from the best bands of ‘90s college rock, while the guitar solos are constantly being kicked up a notch into total unrelenting eruption. Six songs on a 12” never seemed so logical.
