LIBYANS: “Paralyzed: One-sided 7”

Without a doubt these are my favorite songs since their debut Welcome to the Neighborhood EP, and I would consider myself a fan of everything in between. The Libyans have this knack for tapping into the geekiest aspects of arty record packaging and the most fist-pumping, captivating aspects of hardcore punk. These are the kinds of records that make you believe in the fountain of youth. Cracking the seal and plopping this record on can make you feel like you don’t know shit and you wanna learn everything.
