PRETTY HURTS: Make Graves: 12”EP

This raw, one-sided, six-song 12” wants to claim early District of Columbia emo as its main influence, but it has more of a Steve Albini, Chicago vibe. Fast, lo-fi goodness explodes off of the vinyl. They’re from Berlin, but sing in English like many European bands. No one’s making graves for Pretty Hurts yet. This is inspirational, vital stuff for sure.
