DIFFICULT: Self-titled: CS

I love the art of this cassette; it captures a lot of what the early 2000s punk did well—simple yet smart, abrasive, affective. A red, scrawled snake eats its own tail encased in a few hand drawn black lines. The music follows the aesthetic suit of the art, embodying early 2000s punk meets riot grrrl—catchy, angsty, lo fi and tight. For fans of Pussy Whipped-era Bikini Kill and The Nerve Agents. –Candace Hansen (Nervous Intent)
