BALL OF LIGHT: Self-titled: 7”

I always feel like a dick when I can tell something is done well, but I just don’t like it. This record is not for me, not because it is terrible (it isn’t), but because hardcore steering deep into sludgy metal territory is just not my thing. To paraphrase Jello Biafra, it’s like a bad laxative. It just doesn’t move me. –Ty Stranglehold (Rad Girlfriend, radgirlfriendrecords.bandcamp.com)
