KUKEN: Black Rose: 7”

Given the odd white lettering on black background that comprises the cover, this could’ve gone any number of ways. Turns out we’ve got ourselves here a German band that sounds tailor-made for Dirtnap’s stable of bands. Two tunes of infectious thud-punk, beefy without being meatheaded, both of ‘em winners. Fuck yeah.
