SKULL PRACTITIONERS: Self-titled: Cassette

New York band playing heavy rock that splits the difference between those Dope, Guns and Fucking in the Streets comps and the Dazed and Confused soundtrack. There are guitar heroics, vocal harmonies, and bastardized butt-rock riffs, but it never comes off as slick or winking. As guitar music is ignored by the mainstream, it’s refreshing to hear these sounds being chewed up and spit onto the wall by the hungry underground.
