SUBSETS: Ape Facin’: 7”EP

Debut EP from Ohio’s Subsets. I need to point out that this single took me by surprise. The opening song (the title track) makes me wonder what it would be like if the singer from Menace kicked Greg Sage out of the Wipers. The other three tracks give off more of a Nobunny (or The Spits, for that matter) meets Poison 13 vibe, if that makes any sense. It doesn’t? Hmm. Okay. Well, imagine catchy garage punk that empowers beefy, low-end, sludgy guitars, yet is far from being metal. It’s really, really great.
