BOXKITE: Self-titled: 12”

No messing about by this Plymouth quartet as it nails its colors to the mast from the get-go. Chunky, malevolent riffs herald the onset of “Bloodletting,” which creates a dark mood with its slow yet angry delivery. Boxkite manages to pummel heads regardless of the pace of the tracks—although perhaps more so on the slower numbers—where there is a clear sense of precision being applied to the task. There are seven tracks and all is done and dusted in under ten minutes; short and sweet but well worth parting with hard earned cash for. –Rich Cocksedge (Crew Cuts, / Fresh Outbreak, [email protected], / Angry & Hungry, [email protected],
