NEO CONS: Self-titled: EP

Jul 21, 2011

Decent hardcore punk here. Straight-forward delivery and the recording sounds like it was done live. Though I think the reality is they—smartly—kept it basic and raw. The songs are loud, kind of chunky, and no bullshit. While I do like this, I wonder how much better they could be if they tightened up a little bit, chopped off small parts of songs, and honed it all down to a series of short sharp shocks. “Can’t Sleep” is my favorite of the six.
