ZERO ZERO: Back to Basics: 7” EP

Raw and abrasive hardcore punk from Brazil. I really like the energetic, somewhat snotty vocals ala Kenji from Jellyroll Rockheads. I also dig the guitars when they get a little jagged and discordant with surf undertones, which I’m sure La Piovra fans will get behind. The silk screened cover, inside and out, is also punk as fuck. Along with Futuro, Brazil is coming back to life with really good bands as of late.
