CRESS / BUFF: Choose Your War/Government Monster: Split: LP

Jul 20, 2021

Cress and Buff are two solid U.K. anarcho punk bands, each with a slightly different take on the genre. Cress, unsurprisingly, has Crass aspirations, which feel heavy-handed at times both in the artwork and the music. Buff on the other hand feels like a more future-forward anarcho punk sound with spacey synths and a little more independence from the standard sound. Despite the predictability of the release, or perhaps because of it, it is a great record. –Liz Jones (Urinal Vinyl, [email protected], urinalvinyl.com)
