NERVOSAS: Demo: Cassette

This is pretty good. Definite X (LA) influence in the dual male/female vocals. For some reason, they also make me think about the Street Eaters. Maybe it’s the vocals from Jeff? They draw heavily from the past, mix in some Plugz, the aforementioned X and the Wipers, and add a little post punk to give it something more. The guitar sounds really cool with the tremolo, like TSOL. Gives the sound an extra dark feel that I like. Have to say, “Junky” is my favorite on here. It’s a bit more urgent than the rest and the guitar sounds great—how it switches back and forth between the creepy and dark sound to rapid strumming. I bet that when they get some vinyl out they’ll be a big deal, so send for this tape now and beat the rush.
