VARIOUS ARTISTS: Welcome to Minneapolis: 7”

This is a six-band compilation of heavy, basement-dwelling punks from Minneapolis. Lots of leather and spikes and seething anger. My favorites here are Ponx Attax and Favela Rising. The only band I really couldn’t get into was Kontrasekt. The record also features pictures of shows and all the bands by local photographer Adam Degross. Nice shots, for sure. It makes me feel good to know this stuff is happening all over the place!
