DREAM PROBE: Demo 2017: CS

Sep 20, 2017

Full of rage, smarts, and tasteful riffage, Champaign, Ill. trio Dream Probe are holding it down for fast hardcore in a suburb known for sweaty emo boys. I love that Dream Probe’s songs are heavy and short. Vocalist Olguie sings totally in Spanish about political and personal subjects—such as Puerto Rican colonization and queer experience—and a lyric sheet is included. The tape flows together well and the songs are interesting and frenetic rather than static or formulaic. For fans of Poison Idea or Die Kreuzen or the current Get Better Records catalog. –Candace Hansen (Prescience Tapes)
