SOIL: To Wither: Cassette

May 17, 2013

Soil are an Olympia band who play epic, crusty hardcore with lyrics that use gardening as a metaphor for autonomous living. The music, “Gardencore,” stands on its own, but the theme makes it inspiring. I hope they include seeds in the packaging of their next record, so people can grow some string beans while they punk out. If you live in a collective house that smells like dumpstered vegetables and wet Carhartts, you are required to keep this tape by the kitchen boombox. Don’t make me call a house meeting on your ass!
