KILL CONRAD: “Work & Class” b/w “D.B.D.S”: 7”

Hailing from Boston, it makes sense that Kill Conrad are reminiscent of later ‘80s East Coast punk, a little hardcore crust with the melody; it’s got the beat, got the tight energy that keeps you listening. Just recreating that sound without the trying too hard feeling is admirable. Two titles, two 7”s in one? Five cool songs. Plus, not enough bands write punk rock anthems about Peter North and David Schwimmer anymore. Put this on your mix tape and skate to the bowl.
