LITTLE MISS AND THE NO NAMES: Mind: EP

Straight-ahead, no-frills hardcore punk with varying tempos. They have the feel of the 1980s heyday, but don’t sound retro. What I like best about this is how the bass and guitar sound together (Onj and Paul from Septic Death). They have this really nasty and combustible sound. There are parts where they sound like they’re about to bust holes in the walls (I imagine live it must be pretty damn nice to hear). The vocals are somewhat high pitched, but not annoying or cutesy. Instead, they have a scratchy, urgent way about them. “Perfection” and “Liar” are the choice cuts here.
