LOUDER: Self-titled: LP

A ten count of Japanese snot-punk, smartly filtered through both a) a garage, and b) 1977. Solid work and excellent packaging. A little too nuanced to be hurtling into pure garage territory, but the ferocity’s there. I don’t know enough about Sorry State to know if they’re stepping outside of their wheelhouse with this one, but Louder could’ve fit in just as well on No Front Teeth or Deadbeat, if that helps. Personally, I’m reminded greatly of the Stitches 8 x 12”,which isn’t a bad thing at all.
