CLOSET BURNER: Disappointment. Death. Dishonor.: LP

Closet Burner are the queer anarchist hardcore humans my teen crustie Aus-Rotten-loving heart has been waiting for. I love everything about this release: the hand screened insert boasting the adage “up the queers—smash the state—hate the cops,” the legible lyric sheet with simply conveyed political anthems, the songs that move between dark, fast punk, sludgy bangers, and heavy breakdowns. Come for the (presumably vegan) leather harness art, stay for everything else. –Candace Hansen (Reality Is A Cult / IFB / Get Better)
