EXITHIPPIES: Dance Maniac: 12” EP

It’s as though Exithippies are personally offended by the idea of genres, which in 2017 is nothing short of admirable. Coming from a noisecore/raw punk background, what I’m reviewing here is a lo-fi house record. Demented at times, but for the most part these grooves offer danceable club beats. I like to think that there is no such thing as a bad genre, so I always welcome the idea of punks exploring other sounds. Not sure what techno aficionados would think of this, but I think it’s awesome. When your heart tires of distortion and blastbeats, but you don’t want to take your crust pants off just yet: see what Exithippies are up to. –Daryl (SPHC)
