CODETALKERS: Self-titled: 7”

Hardcore for the thinkers outta the flatlands of Texas that excels at transitioning between testosterone-fueled yelling parts and sparse instrumental interludes. Feels like a band I would have learned about in column in HeartattaCk, mentioned between the likes of Yaphet Kotto, Trial By Fire, or Comadre. Hard hitting, impactful, and capable of putting some distance between themselves and the genre’s expectations, but not so much space that they lose any of the aggression or pacing that a hardcore 7” needs. –Daryl (Codex, codetalkers.bandcamp.com)
