STAYGOLD: Self-titled: EP

I guess this is more of the “modern-hardcore” thing. I say this because the playing is not as urgent or desperate and pissed as the more traditional hardcore bands are. Really clean sounding, and it seems these guys really know how to play their instruments. Sort of like a more tuneful Undertow, with a slight rock edge. It’s a wonder these guys haven’t been picked up by Revelation or Bridge Nine yet.
