WOMEN IN PRISON: Self-titled: EP

Awesome! I still haven’t recovered from their flawless demo, and while these three songs (“Strange Waves,” “Births of Rot,” and “Circles & Circles”) are on the demo, it’s nice to have it on vinyl. Blown-out punk that straddles some dark territory between hardcore and garage. The music is blown out and the vocals sound like they were recorded in a cellar. May sound off-putting to the less adventurous, but you never know what you’re in for unless you take a chance. Fans of No Trend, Flipper, and more recent groups like Fresh Meat, you need to get this.
