BRUTE SPRING: The Perilous Transformation of Kid Spit: CS

Jan 21, 2022

I swear to fucking god, every time I get something to review for this here magazine and it’s the weirdest, danciest, noisiest version of what punk music can be, I look and it’s from Buffalo, N.Y.! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again—the scene there is hopping and people refuse to stop being fucking weirdos. I lived there for years; I was weirder then too. It’s beautiful. And the best part about this real no-wave, dance punk vibe is that you get the sense that they don’t take themselves too seriously. With references to Alan Vega and Throbbing Gristle on their Bandcamp, this feels like a safe bet. –Theresa W. (Swimming Faith)
