DON’T SLEEP: Turn the Tide: LP

Following up from an EP and 7” comes this Pennsylvania hardcore band’s first full length. The dual guitars have a buzzsaw effect in most songs with perhaps a Lagwagon technical feel tossed into the mix for good measure. Walter from Gorilla Biscuits helps out with songwriting on three songs, but this truly is a group effort by the band. “We Remain” is my favorite song on this recording. The band evens tries some Bad Brains style reggae on “The Wreckage.” A solid album worth wrapping your head around. –Sean Koepenick (Mission Two, [email protected])
