CIRCLE PIT: Society Burns: EP

Exactly, and I mean exactly, what you would expect from a band called Circle Pit. Straight-forward political hardcore from Austin, TX that is tailor-made for crowd-walking and picking up change. Not intensely original, but also not mind-numbingly derivative. A little one note. And, as you can tell from titles like “Lost My Shit in the Pit,” “Get the Fuck in the Pit,” “Stuck in a Mosh Pit,” and “Circle Pit,” that note is the fucking pit. Bonus points for the robot Trump on the sleeve—I bet a Circle Pit show is a great place to get out some misplaced aggression that’s pent up during the first hundred days. –Theresa W. (Self-released)
