FREEZE, THE: Someone’s Bleeding: 7” EP

Been a good long while since I last heard anything new by the Freeze, and this wasn’t a disappointment. Dunno the vintage of the four tunes here, but by the sound, I’d guess two come from an older session and two of more recent vintage. Three are bang-on mid-tempo tunes with the band’s prototypical mix of hardcore and oddly poppy sensibilities. The closer is a different rendition of “Sacrifice Not Suicide,” a tune some might remember from the Boston Not L.A. comp. Nice to hear they’re not only still kicking around, they’re still coming up with quality tunes, too. –Jimmy Alvarado (Dr. Strange)
