SUBSETS: Twothousandfourteen: Cassette

I’m going to hazard a guess and say that live, these Cincinnati dudes probably flatten rooms. On tape the energy’s a little muted, so what comes across is an entirely serviceable punk band with simultaneous nods to both the swagger of the Murder City Devils and the ferocity of hardcore. Not bad, but missing that little something extra necessary to make it leap out and slap the ears off of me.
